Club Notes 04-06-2018
Last Thursday Kilmacabea welcomed Beal Atha NGhaorthaidh to leap for a u14B2 section2 league game. The visitors came out of the traps early with a goal in the 1st min. Kilmacs were quick to reply with 3 pts in a row. Some great defending from Patrick O Driscoll & Mark Cooke in the full backline prevented BNG from adding to their early goal. The Midfielders of Eoin Tobin & Padraigh Gore linked well with the half forward line of John Keating, Conor Burns & Adam O Donovan to add to the kilmacs score line before ht. 3-6 to 1-2. Again in the 2nd half Kilmacabea were linking well from half back to the full forward line especially Tyler Abbey who is only playing gaelic football a few months but is showing great skills which he is bringing from playing rugby. Cillian Whelton & Liam McCarthy added two more goals. Others to impress were Centre back Mark O Sullivan & Liam Tobin wing back. Goalkeeper Cian O Donoghue had little to do but found the midfielders well with his kickouts. Although the final score was 5-14 to 1-4 there is a lot for the players to work on over the summer. Kilmacabea are now on top of the u14B2 section 2 league with 2 games left to play against Glengarriff & St James.

The minor footballers played a number of games in the past week. Last Tuesday evening they took on Dunmanus Rovers in the league and were unlucky to come out on the wrong side of a 5-9 to 5-11 defeat. On Friday they travelled to Ballygarvan to play their final two games in the Non Exam Football League. The team put in two excellent performances and drew with Ballygarvan 2-6 apiece and then defeated Killeagh St Ita’s by 3-11 to 2-4. Well done to all involved on the night on two excellent results.
All at Kilmacabea GAA would like to wish all those starting their Junior and Leaving Certificates this week. Remember all the hard work you’ve put in over the past two/three years will pay off in the end.
