Kennedy Cup Update Tuesday 12th June
Limerick County qualify for Bowl in second place( on Goal Difference)
Our Kennedy Cup squad were oh so close to topping the group on the second day of the Kennedy Cup just losing out on Goal Difference. After a tremendous effort last night against Kildare it was no surprise that it took a small while to get going in their first match of the day against South Dublin Football League. A deflected ball over the top was dispatched to the net by the South Dublin centre forward after 10 mins and try as they might after that County could not find an equalizer. They had a few decent chances with the best chance falling to Billy Daly who just got there before the keeper but his lobbed effort going agonisingly wide. They had South Dublin on the rack for all of the second half until South Dublin made it 2-0 from the penalty spot with the last kick of the game. Onto the second game of the day against West Cork and there was no let up from the word go as they tore into West Cork from start to finish and ran out comfortable winners by 2 goals to nil. A brilliant run and pass by Harry Fox to Cathal O Mahoney saw the Galbally man finish with aplomb after 10 mins to put County 1-0 up. As I said County dominated the game and were rewarded with a second goal 14 mins into the second half when great work by Harry Fox again (I have to say he was outstanding) and he fed Cathal O Mahoney who skinned his marker for the umpteenth time and sent over perfect cross for Dion Curtin to head home much to the delight of everyone. Noah Patterson hit the post and another few chances went a begging as Kildare topped the group courtesy of a 4-0 win and better goal difference. It was another excellent performance from everybody and hopefully all those who took a knock or are carrying one will be ok tomorrow. The boys play Waterford on Grass Pitch 3 at 3pm in the 1/4 final of the bowl for finishing in runners up spot in their group. Well done to all again and best of luck tomorrow.
