Kilmeena vs Moy Davitts
Kilmeena travelled to Foxford to play Bohola Moy Davitts, on their home-turf.
Weatherwise, conditions were ideal for football – dry with a light breeze and spells of sunshine.
The home side were first off the mark, scoring a point inside the opening minutes. Kilmeena responded with a superbly taken point by Ian Murphy. This was followed up soon afterwards by the games only Goal, that from the boot of Mikey Hastings.
As the first half progressed, both sides enjoyed spells of good possession. However, both teams were also guilty of poor decision making/shot selection; which yielded a spectacle of mediocre quality. A brace of well taken frees from Ronan O’Donnell and the exchange of a couple of scores by each team, gave a scoreline of 1 – 5 to 0 – 4 in favour of the visitors at the small whistle.
The second half continued in the same vain as the first half with both sides struggling to convert possession into scores. In the end, Moy Davitts did manage to outscore the visitors by one point – 5 points to Kilmeena’s 4 points. However, it was not enough to overturn Kilmeena’s 4 point half time advantage and the visitors progress to the Final
Kilmeena will now face Knockmore in the Division 2 Final on Tuesday next, 22nd May, 2018, in Breaffy (7pm)
