Kilcolman Rovers 3-2 Askeaton
A tough match between two evenly matched sides. Unfortunately we tend to be very slow starters and tonight was no different. Kilcolman scored after 3 minutes after slack defending on our left side. They doubled their lead with a well placed free kick from the edge of the area. Shane Ryan reduced the deficit just on halftime after a 1-2 with Jamie Sheahan. Halftime 2-1
Chances in the second half weren’t as numerous as the first 35minutes but we did equalise 15 minutes from time when Matthew Kehoe put Jamie Sheahan through after he finished expertly. Unfortunately a defensive mix up from a free kick in our own penalty area gave the home team a gift of a goal and all 3 points. Disappointing for the boys as their 2nd half performance deserved more.
