Kelly Cup: Balla v. Kilmeena
Kilmeena lined out against Balla in a sunny 18th of March. This was a lively game of football played by two teams that are looking to progress again this year. Kilmeena started well with two points but Balla rallied and tag on 5points before Liam Heanue struck with a goal. It kept with the ebb and flow of the first half and Kilmeena were 1 - 03 to 1 - 06 down at half time.

The second half started the same as the first with Kilmeena striking first. Balla were very potent up front and punished us for some sloppy defence scoring 3 second half goals. We did respond with one ourselves by substitute Pat Coughlin.
Over all this was a positive display taking into consideration we had 10 changes from the previous game. All in all there are plenty of guys putting their hand up for selection and going to give management a headache going into the first round of the league.
Final score: Balla 4 - 9 Kilmeena 2 - 7.
Onward and upwards - Kilmeena abú!
