Football - The Kilmoganny senior football team continued their succesful league campaign in Mullinavat on Saturday afternoon last in the second round of the league. Kilmoganny started the game much better than the home team with Kieran Bergin getting a point from play and two frees in the opening minutes. Kilmoganny continued to dominate possession with Mullinavat finding it hard to get out of their own half. Paddy Delaney and Kieran Bergin pointed again to give Kilmoganny a five point lead. Kilmoganny continued to dominate and were awarded a penalty which Kieran Bergin converted. Mullinavat responded well, broke forward and drilled the ball to the bottom left corner of the net giving keeper Jim Fallon no chance. Kilmoganny responded before half time with points from Darren Fitzpatrick and Kieran Bergin to leave it 1 - 7 to 1 - 0 at half time.
Kilmoganny introduced Peter Kenneally for Paul Kirwan at half time and William Hughes for Andrew Fitzpatrick shortly after. Mullinavat brought on five subs simultaneously shortly after the resumption in play. Kiernan Bergin resumed his scoring spree with a point and a second excellently taken penalty. This sparked a Mullinavat revival and they scored a goal and a point in very quick succession. The Kilmoganny defence was under pressure at this stage but the full back line of Tommy O’Brien, Canice Hickey and Mark Dowling continued to hold strong. Kilmoganny continued to be patient and worked the ball well with short hand passing and it eventually brought about Kilmoganny’s third goal when Kenny Moore made no mistake and pounced on a loose ball and buried it into the Mullinavat net. Mullinavat however broke forward again and scored their third goal before Colin Herity finished Kilmoganny’s scoring with a well taken point to leave it 3 - 9 to 3 - 1 full time.
Team:-Jim Fallon, Mark Dowling, Canice Hickey, Tommy O’Brien, Andy Hickey, Noel Hickey, Andrew Fitzpatrick, Colin Herity(0 - 1), Sean Connery, Paul Kirwan, Paddy Delaney(0 - 1), Kenny Moore(1 - 0), Donal O’Shea, Kieran Bergin(2 - 6), Darren Fitzpatrick(0 - 1). Subs used:-Peter Kenneally for Paul Kirwan, William Hughes for Andrew Fitzpatrick, Adam Kenneally for Kieran Bergin and James Keogh for Paddy Delaney.
Kilmoganny now top their group with 4 points from two games and face Dicksboro in the final group game. A win would ensure that they top the group.
