SENIOR CO. LEAGUE DIVISION 5 - ROUND 8 - 15/7/2017 2017-07-15 01:17:00

Knocknagoshel 2-5  Asdee 2-12

Both teams badly needed the two points on offer in this County League game, played at Walsh Park, Knocknagoshel as they languish in the lower reaches of Division 5 and it was the visitors who took the spoils after an entertaining hour of football. Eoin Tydings got Asdee off the mark with a well taken point in the opening minutes and followed it with a point from a
free in the sixth minute.  Knocknagoshel opened their account with a point from corner forward John O'Keeffe, but Eoin Tydings replied with a free almost immediately.  After a mix-up in the Knocknagoshel defence, Michael Tydings was on hand to poke the ball past the Knocknagoshel keeper Mike Casey, to stretch his side's lead.  However, Knocknagoshel surged up the field from the kick out and John O'Keeffe got on the end of the move to rattle
the Asdee net.  Eoin Kennedy had two points from play for Asdee either side of a Killian O'Connor free for the home team.  Sean Keane and John Doran both pointed from play for the visitors, who looked to be pulling clear, before David Cahill turned his marker and rifled a shot to the net for Knocknagoshel, to leave the half time score at 2-2 to 1-7 in favour of
Asdee.

Asdee got the perfect start to the second half and, despite playing against the breeze, reeled off four unanswered points.  It took until the 17th minute of the half before Knocknagoshel replied with an excellent point from Conor Sheehan.  Asdee had a pointed free from Eoin Tydings, shortly before Michael Breen got inside the Knocknagoshel cover to score his side's second goal.  David O'Donoghue pointed a free for Knocknagoshel and Killian O'Connor scored his second point of the evening, slotting over from the left hand side, but the gap was too much to make up and Asdee ran out winners on a final score of 2-12 to       2-5.
