Kilmeena V Hollymount-Carramore U18 Boys League Division 3B 13th April '18


Kilmeena hosted Hollymount-Carramore in the third round of the Minor League on a perfect evening for football in St Brendan’s Park. After a sub-standard performance in their previous game against Kiltimagh, the men from Kilmeena returned to winning ways with a much improved performance. Kilmeena dominated possession in the early exchanges but failed to convert their chances. The home side were very patient and slick in their build-up play and opened up the Hollymount-Carramore defence on several occasions in the opening 30 minutes, resulting in both Paul Hoban and Cian Moore being denied by the goal-keeper. A succession of frees from John McGlynn and Sean Moore, respectively, in addition to a fisted effort from Cian Moore, ensured Kilmeena were leading by 6 points to 4 at half-time. The second-half took on a similar pattern to the first, with Kilmeena again dominating possession but failing to add to the scoreboard. Hollymount-Carramore proved dangerous on counter-attacks and were denied on a number of occasions by the excellent defending of Josh Mulchrone and Niall Mullin. Kilmeena continued to work hard and probe the Hollymount-Carramore defence. In the 42nd minute the Kilmeena barren-spell ended when Jack Carney rose to claim the Hollymount-Carramore kickout and following some great build-up play Ronan O’Donnell finished the move to the net. Further points from Jack Carney and John McGlynn extended the home team’s lead. The game was over as a contest in the 53rd minute when Cian Moore rose highest to fist a Jack Carney free to the net. Kilmeena were worthy winners on a score line of 2-10 to 7 points. This was a much improved performance from the Kiltimagh game, with Kilmeena’s overall work-rate and defensive play being of a far higher standard. Match Report by Declan Ryan and Niall Ryan.
