Match Report , U15 Division 1, Killarney Athletic 3-3 Killorglin Afc

In the first league game of the season Athletic played a physically strong Killorglin side. Starting strong Athletic forced the pace with a number of corners & free kicks that saw chances go to waste. Killorglin took the lead through a well placed penalty to the corner. Killorglin doubled their lead when a defensive mix up lead to another soft goal to make it 2-0 at half time, despite Athletic missing many good chances.
Into the second half & again Athletic started strong. They pulled one back when a stunning free kick from 35 yards out found the top corner from MOTM Jason Lee. Athletic pressed hard for an equaliser but with 15 Killorglin must have thought they put the game to bed when they scored a breakaway goal to Make it 3-1.
Not to be out done, a corner from Swung in from the left was only half cleared & as the ball came back in Jaime Alade was on hand to smash home for his second of the season. With Killorglin starting to make mistakes, Athletic really piled on the pressure & it was the excellent Aaron O’Sullivan who beat the onrushing keeper to a through ball to round him & finish to the net.
Both teams had chances to win it but Athletic will be happier with the final result. Squad: Doolan, Carroll, Foley, O’Callaghan, Gill, Hickey, Warren, O’Shaughnessy, Tynan, Pierce, Komosa, Alade, O’Brien, Quill, Lee, Moynihan, Mulvanney, Osieba, Rejuvcan, O’Sullivan
