Kilmeena U16 boys got their Summer championship off to a great start with a win against neighbours Burrishoole on Tuesday evening last. The game which was played in Burrishoole was full of attacking and free flowing football. Burrishoole was first to sore with a point, Kilmeena replied but Burrishoole then got the first goal of the evening but the men wearing the black and white were not down for long and responded with some good scores including a goal from centre forward Darragh Slattery. Next to raise the green flag was Liam Moore who finished an excellent move to leave Kilmeena leading at half time by 2-05 to 1- 4 . Burrishoole started the second half with great intensity and scored a goal from a penalty and 2 points to lead by a point. Once again Kilmeena, driven on by Oisin Grimley who was excellent throughout, came back and goals from Darragh Slattery and Cillian O Grady pushed Kilmeena ahead again. Both sides traded points as referee Mel Kenny was kept busy trying to control the neighbourly tussles all over the pitch but it was Kilmeena who finished strongest winning out with a final score of Kilmeena 4-9 to Burrishoole 2-8.
