Seniors draw with Celtic

Denny Premier A
Killarney Celtic 0 Killarney Athletic 0
The seniors continued their return to form with a well-earned draw away to neighbours Killarney Celtic this morning. The game began in earnest with Celtic making the most of their possession and Athletic a little slow to get on the ball. With Cian Tobin and Niall O’ Riordan showing good flashes up front and the back five solid, Athletic came more into it but Celtic were unlucky not to go ahead before the break.
The second half produced two close efforts with Tobin hitting the post in an attempt to put Athletic into the lead and a fine strike from Peter McCarthy was touched onto the bar by the impressive O’ Connor for Athletic. Conor Farrell’s exit for a second yellow meant the young central midfield of David King and O’Riordan had to step up to the mark and they performed well on the day. There was good work also from the back four and O’Connor and Lukas Polak. In a great team effort, Alan O’ Connor and Colm O’ Donoghue will be hoping for continued momentum as they seek to combine experience with youth.
Team: Brian O’Connor, Ryan O’ Carroll, David Looney, Billy McGuire, Brian O’Reilly, Eamon Ahern, Conor Farrell, Lukas Polak, Niall O’ Riordan, Cian Tobin, Shane Bunyan, David King, Gary Moynihan.
