Under 12 Match Report V Kilcullen

U12 Premier Division

Kynog United      2

Kilcullen AFC     2

 On a cold and windy Saturday morning Kilcullen were the visiting team to Kynog park in Timahoe in this return game , Kilcullen started the stronger with Conor O Reilly and Daryl Hunter prominent for the visitors in defence. With Kynog having some regular players injured some of their fellow club mates were only to happy to step up from u11 to assist the team and did not look out of place in the premier division. Joseph Kenny  was on hand after a string of some fine passing and team play to open the scoring for Kynog United when Brian McGrath crossed the ball across the Kilcullen goal for Kenny to calmly slot the ball into the back of the net.

Minutes later Kilcullen levelled the scoring when Conor Healy scored the equalizer. With play going from end to end the Kynog midfield dominated the play and with some hard work from Evan Treacy and Brian McGrath their persistence paid off when a ball was sent up the wing for Ryan Bingham who so calmly controlled the ball and beat the advancing keeper. Just before half time Kilcullens Jason McHugh scored the equalizer. The second half saw some great football been played by these two evenly matched teams . Sam Reissig Dowling was controlling the left wing for the visitors.

Ross Maher Kynog shot stopper was in fine form pulling off some crucial saves and with some superb handling. Graham O Brien, Robert Beirne Shane Morrison and Darragh Lynch were standing firm in defence. Both teams were  hungry for the winning goal; Conor Murray came on for the  home team and made an immediate impact. With the second half remaining scoreless both teams deservedly came away with a point each.
