Under 12 League

Killarney Athletic 0 Killorglin 0

Athletic played their last game of the season last Saturday at a sun drenched Woodlawn. Athletic took control of this game from the start and should have really won this game, but the Killorglin keeper would not be beaten on the day and even when he was, the post came to his rescue even though he should not been on the field after he brought down Eoin Mulvaney and denied him a goal scoring opportunity. The Athletic keeper and back four were brilliant and the midfield quartet controlled the game and set up some fantastic moves and chances for the front men. Athletic introduced all five subs and each played their part but had to settle for the draw. Overall an excellent performance from all. The under 12 management would like to thank the players for their commitment and their parents for all their help with transport to games and training. Thanks see you next season.
