Killenaule-Moyglass Ladies Soccer.

Killenaule had their second win of the league last Sunday at home against Clonmel Celtic. The rain poured down for the first half but it did not stop Killenaule’s play and Edel O’Dwyer scored after Michelle Meagher put a great ball ahead of her 15 minutes into the game and five minutes later Edel dribbled through and crossed to Katie O’Regan who finished well. Celtic responded well and they were rewarded with a penalty on 35 minutes which they converted and that score line remained till half time.

In the second half Killenaule took control of the game with Erin Slattery dominating in the centre and they got behind the Clonmel defence but the keeper brought off great saves until Katie O’Regan broke through and placed it past the keeper . After that, the home team took over and Aoife O’Connor and Roisin Trehy both scored. Katie O’Regan scored two more goals before the referee blew up the game.

Results

U14 Football Killenaule 6-6 Ballypooreen 1-1

U14 hurling Killenaule 0-3 Ballingarry 0-4

Senior Hurling Killenaule 3-17 Davins 0-11

The U14 footballers had an easy win last Monday night in the championship. The highlight of the match was the scoring exploits of E Shaw who scored 4-2.

Our U14 hurlers were unlucky losers in the Feile when a disallowed goal proved the difference in a low scoring game. With the focus so far being on football maybe it’s time to get out the hurleys. Our defence was on top throughout but we found scores hard to come by at the other end. Best on the day were Killian Dwyer, Gus Brown, Paudie Feehan, Dean O’Connor, Liam Meagher and Eoin Shaw.

The Senior Hurlers have all but qualified for the knockout stages of the South championship after a comfortable win over Davins. Having lost out to the same opposition last year we were well up for the match. The opening exchanges were close enough but once we came to grips with them we pulled away coming up to half time. We showed five changes from our first match and the players that came in acquitted themselves well. Best on the day were G. Kennedy, A Conran, T Doyle, Mouse, C Bergin, K Bergin, Bubbles and man of the match and top scorer Festy.

Fixtures

Next weekend we play Swan in the minor Football, the juniors will have a challenge and the big match will be our senior hurling match against Mullinahone. In the last few years we have struggled against them so we will see if we have made progress on Friday Evening in Fethard.
