BALLYMAC 1—10 FOSSA 0—9 Friday 31st of April
Following our midweek victory over Mitchels ,we were in a confident frame of mind for this County League fixture at home to Fossa.Full credit must go to all our players who endured some very robust challenges throughout this game. Kerry minor captain David Clifford was well marshalled by Eoin o Malley and Eddie Rodgers in turn, and its testament to our hard working defence that our opponents were kept scoreless for most of the second half and had hardly any goal chance in the entire game.Straight from the off Keelan Brosnan put Daire Reagan through for a point.ML Hoare was fouled and D Reagan pointed from the free. Fossa pointed from a free and Josh o Keeffe pointed for us with help from Barry Lyons. Twice in succession ML Hoare was fouled with D Reagan converting the frees. Fossa added four more points to lead at half time by 0-6 to 0-5.Our opponents started the second half in more determined mood kicking 3 points early on but this was the end of their scoring. Daire Broderick pointed after collecting an Eoin o Malley pass. Ten minutes passed without either side scoring before Daire Keane marked his introduction with a point . ML Hoare pointed from a free after being fouled and a low shot from Josh was barely wide. D Reagan pointed from a free after Cathal Dunne was fouled and four minutes into injury time ML Hoare pointed from a free to give us a slender lead . A minute later Daire Keane was on hand to sidefoot the ball to the net after good work by Eoin O Malley. We now have 6 league points as Gaeltacht provide the opposition next Tuesday evening 4th at 6-30 in Ballymac.
