U13 Premier ; Killarney Athletic 3-3 Iveragh United

Killarney Athletic Under 13 A continued their unbeaten run with a terrific comeback against a strong Iveragh side in their premier league game played in Woodlawn last Saturday. After a keenly contested opening half Athletic fell behind to an opportunistic goal despite good defending by Oran Daly Oscar McCarthy Paddy Foley and Tom Healy. Athletic equalised following a pass from Rocco, Sheehan and a superb run and finish from Alex Hennigan. Despite good play from the Coffey cousins Josh and Donnacha and Oisin Lynch and Neil O’Carroll Athletic conceded 2 goals against the run of play and Dara O’Brien made a few good saves in goal to keep us in the game. Athletic brought on 3 subs Tom Benson Cillian Ó’Connor and Dónall Hickey who all played well and a penalty by Alex Hennigan made it 3-2. With a minute to go a fine pass by Cillian Ó’Connor found Alex in space who finished to the net and completed his hat trick to force a draw which was a fair result on the day and completed a great comeback. This newly promoted team are doing really well and are unbeaten in 3 games in a very competitive division. Speedy recovery to star defender Michi Lynch who unfortunately fractured his wrist the previous night. Well done to all the boys on a great comeback.
