Killeagh GAA Notes

07 June, 2009

SHL - On Friday night last Killeagh seniors travelled to Togher to take on St.Finbarr's. Both sides with the third round of championship on their minds and players eager to impress. St. Finbarr's with the wind advantage in the opening half scored 3 points in the opening quarter before Joe scored 2 to open our account. Scores from Brendan, Eoin and Joe again concluded our tally for the first half. Half time score :Killeagh 0-5 St. Finbarr's 0-7.
The opening of the second half saw us go in front by 2 points with scores from Kieren Lane (2), John O'Connor and Brendan Barry. Both sides traded scores for the first 20 minutes before a mix up in the Killeagh defence saw the Barr's score the only goal of the game. Killeagh quickly re-aserted themselves with scores from Eoin Loughlin, Joe Budds and Joe Deane and should have gone further ahead but 2 great strikes by Joe Budds were well saved by the Barr's keeper. On the stroke of full time we were 2 points up but within the four minutes of injury time the Barr's scored 2 points to level the game. Full time score: Killeagh 0-17 St. Finbarr's 1-14.
Junior A Hurling - On the 2nd of June the junior hurlers travelled to Carrignavar to take on Carrignavar in junior A league. This is another team striving for perfection this year unbeaten so far in the league and topping the table. In the first half both sides traded scores and there was never much separating the sides. Half time score: Killeagh 0-8 arrignavar 0-6.
Second half started much the same until a long clearance from Mark Landers inside his own half seemed to find its way into the back of the Carrignavar net. But Carrignavar plugged away and a penalty which was initially saved on the line was scored from the rebound. But Killeagh had done enough to see us win out on a scoreline of 1-14 to 1-11.
