UNDER 14 - Dungarvan 3 Kilmacow 2. The Under 14s were very unfortunate to come back from Dungarvan with nothing to show for their efforts in this match. They were every bit as good as the home side and in truth a draw would have been a fair result. The home side scored the winner in the last few minutes. Rory Leech scored a super goal for our lads. Evan Duggan continued his great scoring run with the other goal. KILMACOW: Anthony McNamara; Kevin O’Mara, Oisín O’Dwyer, Cormac Suffin, Jake Harney; Evan Duggan, David Costelloe, Dale Carroll Morrow; Shane Irish, Daniel Maher, Rory Leech. Res.: Fintan Leech.
UNDER 15 - Our under 15 side played 3 matches in a week. Following their great start to the league they came unstuck against Johnville losing 4-0. They played very well in the first half but the home side were clearly the better side in the second half. Following that defeat Park Rangers were next on the list. This was a real match with the two teams giving everything they had. Alan Murphy put our lads 1-0 up in the first half. Park Rangers equalised before half time and took the lead early in the second half. Alan equalised only for the visitors to regain the lead. Evan Duggan scored a deserved equaliser for the lads to end a great game. Two days later the boys travelled to Piltown for a 6.45 match that started at 7.26! That was no fault of either team who were ready for the appointed kick off. To have these boys wait 36 minutes on a Monday evening with homework to do is scandalous. The match was a real ding dong affair. There were chances and we had a goal disallowed but the match ended 0-0. We’re glad to report that Dev is fine. The players on duty in these matches were Dylan Corcoran; Jacob Green, Dev Murphy, Stephen Haberlin, Alex Grant, Brendan Leech, Larry Vereker, Robert Moore, Dale Carroll Morrow, Jake Harney, Evan Duggan, Alan Murphy, David Costelloe, Shane Irish, Anthony McNamara.
UNDER 11 - Villa 4 Kilmacow 0. Our under 11s were beaten by Villa in this rescheduled match but that’s only part of the story. In sole charge for the evening, manager Eugene had only 7 players – Kieran Dowling, Fergal Suffin, Tom Butler, Ronan Leech, Billy Phelan, Fionn Blanche and Anthony Dunphy – but they are all heroes. It obviously isn’t easy for 7 to play against 9 but these boys played their hearts out; they were magnificent. We knew that Jack and Stephen wouldn’t be there but not to be told about the 4 boys who weren’t there isn’t acceptable. There are plenty good under 10s who could have been drafted in if we knew!
