Kerry Petroleum Senior Club Championship
Killarney Legion 0-15
Our lads came up short in an enthralling game on Saturday evening when Legion kicked two points in time added on to clinch a narrow victory. We played without Kevin McCarthy and Enda O’Sullivan from the named team and lost Kieran Murphy before half-time, but we could be considered unlucky not to at least have earned a draw and a probable victory. Playing with the wind in the first-half we led by 1-6 to 0-7 at half-time courtesy of a superb goal from Kevin Gorman and some fine free taking from Noel Duggan.
With James O’Donoghue very influential for Legion the second half they went a point in front, but we rose to the task and driven on by the likes of Sean O’Leary and Paul O’Shea in particular. We created numerous opportunities and kicked some fine scores, but it was not to be as the crossbar and a late goalmouth scramble denied us. As well as the aforementioned players, very encouraging performances were given by the likes of Paul O’Riordan, Eoin O’Donovan and Danny Cronin in what was a good team display.
A minute silence was observed before the game for two deceased members of the Legion club and we sympathise with them in their tragic losses.
