Match Report; U13 John Joe Naughton Cup, LB Rovers 2-4 Killarney Athletic

Saturday 14th April , U13 Cup Killarney Athletic A 4-2 LB Rovers .

Killarney Athletic U 13 As are through to the last 8 of the cup following a good win in a physical encounter in Ballybunion today. The squad was boosted by the addition of a few new 12s who really impressed in the game today and stepped up to the mark. Following a strong run and cross by Alex Hennigan Matthew Moynihan with a clinical finish put us 1-0 up. Mathew then made it 2-0 following good work by Noah Sexton. The strong wind made conditions difficult but Josh Coffey and his cousin Donnacha Coffey really took control in the middle of the field. Oran Daly and Tom Healy were very solid at the back and keeper Darragh O Brien made two excellent saves. Alex Hennigan with a cracking free kick made it 3-0,Ryan Neeson replaced the hard working Oisin O Sullivan and made some great runs up front. Donal Hickey had a terrific game when introduced with some vital interceptions. LB Rovers made it 3-1 but a superb strike from Paddy Foley who had a great game finished the tie. LB Rovers did score a late consolation goal. On a day when everyone played well man of the match had to go to Michi Lynch who was absolutely brilliant throughout with outstanding defending and distribution. Michi has missed a lot of games through injury this season and today showed what a loss he was to the team. There will be great competition for places going forward as we have a few vital league and Cup games coming up. Well done to everyone today on a great result.
