SENIOR FOOTBALL COUNTY LEAGUE Div 3 Round 9 2014-08-16 10:12:00

Annascaul 1-08 Keel 0-11

Jason Hickson opened the scoring for Annascaul with a point from a free in the opening minute, and Aaron Murphy quickly replied with a pointed free for the visitors. Keel were then denied two goal chances, but Thomas Ladden eventually converted a point on the rebound from a Tommy Pierce save. Gary Sayers and James Long slotted three more points inside the opening quarter for Keel, while Annascaul will rue four missed opportunities before Jason Hickson struck the ball to the back of the Keel net, which left Keel now one point up at the quarter mark. A low scoring second quarter saw Keel and Annascaul add two further points each to their tally. Half time score - Annascaul 1-03 Keel 0-07.

Annascaul were unlucky not to go two points up at the start of the second half, with a missed opportunity on goal. Keel added to their lead with points from Aaron Murphy, Jason Foley and Gavin Evans, but Annascaul's Emmet Kennedy and Aidan Crean kept the home side within two points of the visitors at the three quarter mark. It wasn't until the twenty eight minute again that the scoreboard got use, with Jason Hickson pointing from a free to put one point between the sides in the dying minutes. What ensued was to be a thriller of a finale. Annascaul would have thought prematurely that they had a share of the spoils, when Shane Foley pointed immediately afterwards to level the sides just inside full time. Keel were looking for the win though, and on the next kick out James Nagle received a ball that saw him score for the visitors. Was it to be Keels day? Not if Jason Hickson had anything to do with it, pointing from a free in the next run of play, seeing the sides level at the final whistle Annascaul 1-08 Keel 0-11. 

The man of the match title for both teams in this local derby was sponsored by Sammy's Restaurant Inch, the prize being dinner for two in Sammy's to each team’s Man of the match, Annascaul's Jason Hickson and Keel's James Long being the lucky recipients.
