Kilmeena Minor ladies put back to back wins in the league this evening getting the better of our close neighbors, Westport B.
Kilmeena 6 – 07 Westport B 2- 09
The Captain for this game was Dearbhla Grealis. Playing conditions were good with a slight westerly wind. Kilmeena opted to play with the wind in first half and made the better start by taking good scores,but even with this wind advantage in the first half the home side should have been further ahead. However, Westport remained competitive throughout the game coming close to bridging the gap with narrow misses. As expected the Visitors started the second half the brighter putting together some excellent passages of counter attacking football of which the home team at times did struggle to contain, scoring seven points and two goals. But despite Westport’s strong start to the half the Kilmeena girls to their credit did not panic in maintaining good possession.
As its often said ‘’Goals win matches’’ the home team held their nerve managing to work the ball into the scoring zone resulted in them taking well executed points & more importantly goals that finished the game as a contest. In summary despite the score line this was a very entertaining & competitive game that could have gone either way, with the only exception been Kilmeena were a bit more clinical in netting goals at the right time.
Overall this was truly a great team performance, thank you to the Westport for a sporting game.
