Kilmeena minors did battle against our neighbours Burrishoole in Newport tonight 19th of may. This was a semi final of division 3 and an opportunity to play Bonniconlon in the final.
The first half was a close affair and both teams had opportunities to pull away. But the first half finished with Kilmeena a point ahead 2 - 05 to 2 - 04.
The second half started well for Kilmeena and went a couple of points up. Then all of a sudden Burrishoole bagged 2 fast goals and went 5 points up. Just then Kilmeena hit a purple patch and clawed it back to a single point. At this point it looked like the day could be ours. But it was not to be, as Burrishoole netted 3 further goals and put the game beyond Kilmeena boys.
As you can imagine our lads were extremely disappointed as they had played their hearts out and left it all out on the field. There is no doubt there were so many positives in this performance that it has whet the appetite for future competition.
On behalf of the management and players we would like to thank the supporters that came in great numbers. We hope you enjoyed the game.
