Family Open Day

Does exactly what it says on the tin.
Killarney Athletic Family Fun Day. A massive turn out on Sunday last for our fun day with beautiful sun shining down on Woodlawn park, burgers on the barbecue, bouncy castles for the kids, the sack race and the hole in the board challenge for the “over 30 kids” as well as the annual player of the year awards ensuring that this was not going to be a boring day.

Senior A

Killarney Athletic 4 Park FC 4

Killarney Athletic drew 4 – 4 in Tralee on Sunday morning in a cracking game that we really should have won. Athletic got off to a blistering start scoring within 3 minutes through a well worked Jamie Doolan goal, Park equalised shortly after. Killarney Athletic went back in front when new signing Lubo scored in his 2nd consecutive match. Half time 2 – 1. Playing with a strong breeze in 2nd half Park had Athletic under pressure but a breakaway goal from Gavin O’Shea looked to have put us firmly in control. Park hit back with 2 quick goals and it looked like heading for a 3 – 3 finish. Caiman Mangan then broke from defence to put Athletich 4 – 3 up with 10 minutes to go, but with virtually last kick Park hammered home the equaliser in a pulsating finish. Final score 4 – 4.

Youths League

Killarney Athletic 1 Killorglin 1

Athletic travelled to sunny Killorglin to kick off the youth league. Starting the game with 7 players eligible for the youths again next year, this was planned as a learning curve for the boys in blue by management. The players tore up the script and attacked from the off but Killorglin held strong in defence until Mark O’Shea got on the end of a corner and sneaked the ball over the goal line on the verge of half time to lead by the narrowest of margins. Into the second half and Killorglin got the upper hand and attacked but the defence of Eoin O’Meara, Kike Pierce, Alan Daly and Tommy Counihan held tight. Donal O’Neill in goals made 2 great point blank saves but was undone with 10 minutes to go when Killorglin scored a tap in. A share of the spoils probably a fair result. Best for athletic Donal O’Neill, Eoin O’Meara and Alan Daly. Training this week with Killarney Celtic our opponents in the Munster Youth Cup next weekend.

New Baby: Congratulations to Martin and Lisa Crowley on the birth of baby Sarah.

Kerry Teams: Best of luck to the Kerry Minor and Kerry Senior teams on Sunday next in the All Ireland finals.
