Killanny Notes

June 1st, 2016

Intermediate League
Inniskeen 10p
Cill Eanna 11p
When Dayrl Traynor got the ball deep into injury time he jinked his way through the packed Inniskeen defence, sold a dummy  and split the posts with a winner much to the delight of the large travelling Cill Eanna supporters. This was an absorbing contest played in Grattan park on Sunday last with both teams giving it their all. Trailing by four points at half time Cill Eanna dug deep and got to level the game at the stroke of full time and both teams would have been happy with a draw but Dayrl had other ideas.. Defence were excellent in the second half only allowing Inniskeen to score one point.
Speedy Recovery
We wish Adam Kierans and Gavin Flanagan a speedy recovery after their injuries in last Sundays game.
Under 14
Scotstown 4g 15p
Killanny 5g 12p
Our under 14’s travelled to Scotstown on Thursday last. Killanny took to the field in their new jerseys sponsored by Carrick Pharmacy. Scotstown started off well scoring two goals but then Killanny got one back through Ciaran O’Reilly. Both teams traded points however Scotstown then took hold of the game and went six points up. Ciaran Walsh and Kyle Connolly both hit the back of the net to leave Killanny trailing by a goal at half time. The second half was a close encounter but with some good defending by Oisin Burns, John Gartlan, Cian Burns, Jack Guinan and Cian McNulty and our goalkeeper Mark Lamb we were able to prevent Scotstown scoring another goal. Our midfielders Kyle Connolly and David Leegan were doing well at midfield as were James Callan and Dara O’Shea in the half forward position. Also the two goals scored in the second half by Ciaran O’Reilly and Cillían McConnon meant that we were able to come away with a draw.
Killanny U12’s welcomed Scotstown to Pairc Eanna on Saturday last. The first game seen Killanny get off to a flier with early goals from Cian Burns, Tomas Gartlan and Conor Burns. In the midfield area Cillian McGahan and Cillian McConnon held sway throughout. As the game wore on Scotstown came more into the match but found their way blocked by a Killanny defence that had good performances from Conal Marry, Christopher Tobin and Tomas Quinn. 

At the start of the second half goalkeeper Daniel Kelly made two great saves to deny the Scotstown attack and this spured Killanny into action with John Gartlan, Iarla Gartlan and Matthew Mathers all raising their game to ensure Killanny ran out comfortable winners on a scoreline of 3 -13 to 0 – 7.

In the second game Killanny got off to a slow start and but for good work in defence from Odhran McGinnity and Niall Quinn along with John Kelly in goals Killanny may well have been further behind early on. As the game progressed the  midfield of  Daniel Breen and Daniel Kelly got Killanny a foothold in the game. Adam Callan and Ronan O’Reilly got vital scores to ensure we only trailed by 3 points at half time. 

In the second half Sean McMahon, Sean Duffy and Daragh Finnegan all worked hard to ensure Killanny ran out worthy winners on a score line of 5 – 10 to 3 – 6. Well done to all involved on what was a good days work.
