Kynog United V Kildare Town

Kynog Utd 1 - 6 Kildare Town

Kynog started slowly again this week and paid dearly for it. Under immediate pressure and playing into the strong wind, they found themselves a goal down as a corner was turned into the net by an unlucky defender. A second corner brought a second goal as Jason McDonough rose high to head home. Only minutes later Kynog found themselves four down as Conor Mulholland and then David Hickey fired home. Kynog's first half misery was complete as Brian O'Reilly fired a fifth home just before half-time.

Into the second-half, and this time it was Kildare who started slowly and within seconds of the restart, Kynog got onto the scoresheet through Adam Lynch. Kynog's heads were up now, and they went close through Craig Harris, Dylan Casey and Lynch as they were competing better in the middle of the pitch with Glen Thorpe winning a lot of ball. With Kynog pressing, they were always going to be short at the back, and David Hickey ran on to add Kildare's sixth as they ran out comfortable winners.
