Killarney Legion 0-15 Kilcummin 1-10


As was to be expected, there was very little between these two sides as recent results would indicate.  A tense but entertaining game saw both sides miss good goal chances in the first half and it was only within the last 10 minutes of the first half that the Legion opened some daylight, as they hit five points to Kilcummin’s one to leave the home side leading 0-9 0-4 going in at the break.

The second half certainly wasn't short of drama, as both sides went after the win and gradually Kilcummin whittled away at the deficit and looked on the winning road, when they burst through for a well taken goal to leave just a point in it.  However, the home side’s resolve stiffened and, with the defence working hard, they gradually supplied more ball to the forwards.  The result might have gone the other way, had Kilcummin converted a penalty after 20 minutes, but they saw it hit the upright and it was cleared by the home defence.  Taking heart from this, Legion tacked on three further points to see them home.   A last minute free in front of the Legion goal was cleared fittingly by Shaun Keane who turned in a fine game at midfield.
