Club Notes 20-06-2019
Again it was the Junior Footballers who took center stage this past week. On Thursday night they entertained near neighbours Castlehaven in the league. The first half of this game was a very cagey affair with the Kilmacs finding it hard to break down a resolute Castlehaven outift, but still led by 0-8 to 0-6 at half time. The second half was a different game as the Kilmacs upped the tempo and ran out easy winners by 1-20 to 0-10. On Sunday morning the team travelled to Ahamilla to take on the home side in their next league game. The Irish summer kicked into full force and as the ball was thrown in the rain hammered down for the entire game. Despite the terrible conditions, the brave souls who turned out saw the Kilmacs tear the Clonakilty defence to shreds and led by 0-13 to 0-1 at half time. With no let up in the torrential rain in the second half, it certainly didn’t stop the Kilmacs racking up a very comfortable 2-20 to 0-3 victory. This result see’s the team on 12 points from 8 games and all but guarantees a third successive league final appearance.
The final Junior A league game, takes place this Wednesday evening when the team travels to Ardfield to take on the home side. Throw in is at 8pm.
The U14’s were also in action last Friday night when they welcomed St James to Leap. A very entertaining game ensued and the young Kilmacs were unlucky to come out the wrong side of a one point result, having put in a tremendous display throughout. Final score Kilmacabea 2-10 St James 3-8.
