Killarney Athletic A 5 Killorglin 2
A great away win for our A team today in another high scoring contest. We actually fell behind to an early goal but quickly regained parity through a Jamie Doolan penalty. Mike Milner put us 2 – 1 up and Ryan O’Carroll had us 3 – 1 up at the break. We continued to play great stuff in the 2nd half and 2 more goals from Jamie Doolan & Ryan O’Carroll helped us to an emphatic performance. Killorglin had the last say when they got a consolation from the penalty spot. Best for the Blues were Jamie Doolan, Gavin O’Shea, and Brian O’Donoghue.

Killarney Athletic B 3 Skelliga 0

Athletic made the long trip to Caherciveen today and came away with vital 3 points to clock up another away win. Playing in the 3rd choice strip, Athletic had a very strong panel with 17 players available on the day. With a new formation devised, Athletic were under the cosh for the first 20 minutes but a cross shot by Caiman Mangan from the left wing deceived the keeper and ended up in the net to give Athletic the lead. With a solid defence by Athletic, Skelliga tried but failed to break down the defence to leave half time score the minimum. Into the second half and Athletic were now well on top and great passing play led to Mark Griffin getting Athletic’s second. Athletic were controlling everything and got a third through Caiman’s second. Athletic will rue missed chances with Caiman hitting the post and Maison hitting the crossbar and only for the Skelliga keeper, this could have been easily over sooner against a Skelliga side missing a few regulars. Great team performance with Mark Griffin, Caiman Mangan and David Sheerin standing out.

Under 17

Killarney Athletic 1 Castlegregory 3

A game that Athletic dominated yet silly defensive mistakes cost us. Murt O’Shea with the goal for Athletic. On the plus side, formation and passing vastly improved and despite Castlegregory’s much physically stronger Athletic played and passed the ball around. With a depleted squad on show, all players tried their hardest. With a full squad, this team have what it takes but other commitments by players making things harder for us. Best for Athletic Dion Marcos, Jack O’Connor and Adam Dennehy.

Under 14

Killorglin 4 Killarney Athletic 0

Probably an unbalanced score of game against a physically stronger side which we found hard to match. Athletic started the game well & dominated for the first 20 minutes with Harry Potts having a goal incorrectly disallowed for hand ball! When Killorglin then scored our heads dropped & went into the break 3 – 0 down. A far better attitude in 2nd half proved a very even game but damage done towards end of 1st half. Best for Athletic were Eamon Long, Calum Neher & Ian Prendergast. Training Wednesday night in Fossa.

Under 12 League

Athletic travelled to Killorglin on Saturday last to take on the locals. Fielding a very young team Athletic lost the game but played very well in the second half in which they scored two great goals one from Darragh Looney and one from Rossa Bellew. This team is improving and will surely have better times ahead.
