Our Under 16 boys played their first game of the 2023 League campaign on the 23rd of March against Westport B on the Rice College pitch. This was a competitive, entertaining, and high-scoring match, with many of the lads going up against their classmates. Despite a valiant effort in what was a dingdong battle, we came out on the losing side by just one point, 4-12 to 4-11.
Many thanks to Michael Rabbette for the use of the school pitch on an evening when many pitches across the county were completely unplayable due to recent weather conditions.
We played our second game of the League at home last Thursday (30/3/23) against Bohola Moy Davitts. The Moy Davitts panel was somewhat depleted so they requested to play 13 a side, which we agreed to do.
We got off to a great start with a few goals, but in fairness to Moy Davitts they kept their heads up and played well to leave it at an unusual score of 5-1 to 1-5 at the break.
Moy Davitts came back into it early in the second half with a more few scores, but later Kilmeena pushed right on with a few decisive scores to finish strongly and secure the victory on a scoreline of 7-5 to 2-8.
Next up we play Castlebar Mitchels B away on Thursday evening in Páirc Josie Munnelly (pitch behind McHale Park stand). All support is appreciated!
