COUNTY LEAGUE. Asdee 0-12 Kilgarvan 1-17.
Kilgarvan made the long trip to Walsh Parkon Saturday evening last a winning one where they proved too much to handle for the home side. The Kenmare District were full value for their victory as especially in the second half they ran the home side raggad; putting together some brilliant movement on the ball along with kicking excellent points and only for the brilliance of the Asdee custodian, Conor Coughlan the margin of victory could very well have been much bigger.
On the other hand after a well contested opening half Asdee were off target with their shooting and certainly their discpline left a lot to be desired giving away handy frees which the Kilgarvan attack duly oblidged. The opening half saw both teams really up for it and in an action packed first 30 minutes when the sides were level on no fewer than 5 times it was end to end. John Doran and Mike Breen had Asdee ahead 2 points without reply by the 4th minute and Flor O Donoghue Kilgarvan keeper came to his sides rescue with a fine save.
John Mark Foley who dictated play throughout at midfield got his sides opening score and along with Patrick O Shea who finished the game with 1-5 levelled up the tie for the first time after 12 minutes. It was nip and tuck from here in and points were exchanged by Eoin Kennedy, Eoin Tydings, Mike Breen and John Doran for Asdee while John Mark Foley, Shane O Sullivan, Gearoid Fennessy, Kieran O Sullivan and Patrick O Shea for the visitors and at the break the sides were locked together at 8 points apiece.
However who ever thought we were in for more of the same in the second half were well and truly off the mark as the visitors just ran riot and with the very first attack inside the opening minute it was Patrick O Shea who found the net. In fairness to the home side they tried hard to stay in the game but a much slicker Kilgarvan side who had the legs on their opponents for the duration of this half kicked some excellent scores with; Patrick O Shea, Sean Godfrey, John Mark Foley and Ritchard O Sullivan and Eoin Tydings, John Doran and Matthey O Hanlon replying for Asdee.
This was an excellent display that is all good in football skills from a youthful Kilgarvan side who had many stars on their side; John Mark Foley ruled midfield, Patrick O Shea, Gearoid Fennessy and Sean Godfrey in attack while in a well drilled defence Tommy Healy, Shane O Sullivan and Flor O Sullivan. For Asdee; Conor Coughlan, Eoin Kennedy, Eoin Tydings, Kieran Kelly and Con Carmody did well on this occasion.
