Men’s Football

Senior Team:
Western Gaels V Kilmore
Goals in the 28th and 53rd minute of the game proved the decisive scores for Kilmore in this Div 1 encounter in a dry but breezy Frenchpark on Sunday afternoon last. A depleted Western Gaels side played with the aid of the breeze in the opening half but it was very even throughout the half with scores been swapped on both sides until a very well worked team goal put Kilmore up 1-04 to 0-04. Western Gaels kicked over the last 2 pts of the half to leave the minimum between the teams on a scoreline of 1-04 to 0-06 in favour of Kilmore.
Western Gaels started the 2nd half stronger and kicked over 3pts to lead 0-09 to 1-05 but to their credit Kilmore battled back and hit 4pts on the trot to leave themselves 1-09 to 0-10 points ahead entering the last 10 mins. The crucial goal then came for Kilmore following a high ball into the square that broke to the unmarked Kilmore man who stuck in the net to leave Kilmore 5pts in front at 2-10 to 0-11. Western Gaels kept going and found the net through a well taken goal from Niall Higgins to set up a frantic last few minutes but Kilmore held firm and kicked over a great free from the sideline in injury time to kill the game. Final Scoreline: Kilmore 2-11 Western Gaels 1-11.
