Kilmeena and Breaffy produced an excellent game of football in the first round of the Under 17 League Division 1B yesterday evening at St. Brendan's Park. The home side started brightly and led by 0 - 5 to 0 - 3 mid way through the first half, but Breaffy hit a purple patch scoring 4 - 3 leaving Kilmeena with a mountain to climb in the second half.
To their immense credit, the home team dug deep and put in a powerful second half display raising three green flags and making a real contest of it right to the final whistle . Breaffy proved to be too strong on the day but Kilmeena can look forward to their next outing against Ballintubber next Friday, with confidence.
