Senior A Team
Killarney Athletic 3 Castleisland 1
Killarney Athletic A team beat Castleisland away in the KDL premier league 3 – 1. It was 1 all at half time the Athletic goal came from Rory O’Sullivan. The second half goals came from Michael ‘smiler’ Maloney and Alex O’Sullivan. It was a great result from the team in a very heavy pitch. The team is in good form at the moment but know there is still more room for improvement. A huge effort and great attitude shown again from the whole squad.
Under 16
Killarney Athletic 5 Mastergeeha 0 The under 16's played their first game in almost 2 months when they met Mastergeeha at home in the League on Saturday 13th February. Athletic had Rory O’Riordan and Jack Cahill playing their first games at under 16 level and both played very well. Shane O’Sullivan, also new to under 16 level, had a fine game in defence. Athletic dominated early on and it took a fine goal from Conor Doyle to open the scoring. Thanks to some good defensive work by Mastergeeha it remained 1- 0 at half time. Athletic knew that they had to improve in the 2nd half and Jack O’Connor with 2 along with Jack Cahill and Patrick Coppinger made the final score 5-0 to Athletic. Along with those mentioned Jamie O’Sullivan played well at right back.
Under 12 Premier League
Killarney Athletic 2 Park 3
This was a very lively game with both teams having chances in the first 10 minutes. Some great goalkeeping by the Park Goalkeeper prevented Athletic from scoring and when an Athletic attack broke down in midfield, some sloppy defending left Park in for the first goal. It stayed 1-0 to Park at the interval. Park applied a lot of pressure in the second half and were rewarded with another goal midway through the second half. This seemed to spring Athletic to life and 2 well taken goals from Ronan Buckley leveled it up. Unfortunately when everyone thought that the game would end up all square, the Park scored the winner with an unstoppable strike from just outside the box. Best for Athletic on the day was Ronan Buckley.
