Askeaton 2-7 Kildimo Utd
Played in Kildimo
Matthew Kehoe opened the scoring for us after 10 minutes. Kildimo scored twice in 5 minutes to lead 2-1 before Jamie Sheahan scored a well worked goal to level at 2-2. Unfortunately this was as good as it got for Askeaton as the league leaders scored two more before halftime, 2-4.
As the 2nd half wore on Askeaton with only a bare 11 and 4 of which were U12 got very tired. Kildimo eventually settled the tie with two goals midway through the second half. The Champions elect had the luxury of missing a penalty before they wrapped up the scoring with their 7th of the night. Worthy league champions with a good squad. We have a shield final to look forward to against Kilcolman.

Weekly Observer Division 2
Askeaton AFC 1-0 Glin B
Great to say we are back to winning ways after a tough battle Thursday night against a good Glin B side. In the first half we didn’t create too much, Glin got a man sent off on the 35 minute mark and from there it was one way traffic. We created loads of chances but couldn’t find the net but thankfully with 4 minutes from time Cian Smith found the net from great work from his brother Stephen down the left hand side, taking on 3 players before crossing it to Cian. All the boys battled till the final whistle again and got the 3 points. Killian deserves a mention as he made 2 brilliant saves.
