Killarney Athletic AFC Notes
Senior A Team
Greyhound Bar Cup
Killarney Athletic 5 Mastergeeha 2
With three goals to spare over Mastergeeha in the cup, the seniors continued to regain form. Brian O’Reilly needed a mere 40 seconds for number one, finishing after good work by Lukas and Ryan O’Carroll. It took 34 more minutes for the second and this time Patrick MacClure picked out Lukas who sent it home. Six minutes later, O’Carroll got his name on the score sheet but only after a let-off when a Mastergeeha effort bounced over the bar with the goal open. Despite a great penalty save from Brian O’Connor, the Athletic defence allowed ‘Geeha in to pull one back. Then the ever-dangerous Denis Galvin made the win safe with number four. Substitute David Gleeson finished with aplomb after a fine run down the left for number five. Derry Ahern scored Mastergeeha’s second from a free-kick but Athletic will be pleased to have come out on top. Bar a few lapses in concentration this was a good team performance. The back four of Mark Griffin, Patrick MacClure, Conor Farrell and especially Gary Moynihan were well up to the task, ably anchored by Brian O’Connor, Brian O’Reilly and Martin Crowley were solid and combative in midfield, while Inigio and O’Carroll were a constant threat on the wings. Lukas Polyak and Galvin combined well up front and Gleeson and the evergreen Paul Lynch did well on introduction. With continued endeavour and teamwork, the momentum can continue.
Senior B Team
Killarney Athletic ‘B’ 2 Listowel Celtic ‘B’ 1
The Bs continued their good run of late with a 2-1 win over Listowel away from home! Solid defending from the back four of KJ Griffin, Sean O’Donoghue, Tommy Slattery and Tommy Ryan kept Listowel at bay in the opening half hour. Ryan O’Carroll opened the scoring in the 1st half with a sublime 20 yard strike to the top corner after some good work from his midfield partners Rafael Syc and Brian O’Mahony. JP Mullins worked his socks off all day up and down the right flank providing plenty of crosses for the strikers to work off. Paul Lynch and Ossie were competing very well upfront and the latter got the 2nd with a well taken one on one in the second half! A poor goal was conceded late on due to some messing around at the back…another clean sheet eludes Aaron Quill. Well done lads!
