Kilmeena U21's travelled to play Ballintubber in a winner takes all encounter. The weather was wet and under foot conditions were challenging.
Kilmeena started well with a strong defence well on top. Our team broke into the Ballintubber half and kicked some super scores and raced into a 5 point to one lead. All of a sudden we were camped in our own half struggling to win a kick out. Ballintubber tagged on the next few points to go two points up at half time 0 - 8 to 0 - 6.
As the second half started, Ballintubber had the upper hand and their inside forwards were very accurate. The men in red raced into a 7 point lead 0 - 7 to 0 - 14. Kilmeena worked their way down the field to score our first goal. This was the moment our lads kicked into gear. From that moment on we dominated possession and scored 3 further goals in the space of a few minutes.
Well done lads, great preformance, great win and fantastic entertainment.
On behalf of our team and management we would like to thank all our supporters that made the trip.
