Cumman Na mBunscol Division 1B Final

Best of luck to our schoolboys mixed team who take on Colmcille in the Division 1B final in Pearse Park on Thursday evening at 7PM. All support appreciated. 

Leinster Club League Semi Final

Our Senior team scored a brilliant one point win over Lucan Sarsfields in the semi final of the Leinster League in Emmet Park on Friday evening. Killoe started the game very well and raced to a 7 points to 2 lead with some well taken scores. Mark Hughes was through on goal mid way through the first half and was unlucky not to get a penalty when the Sarsfields goalkeeper tackled him down, the resulting ball went back up the field in a quick counter attack and Sarsfields bagged their first goal of the game. Killoe started the second half with a 3 point lead but Sarsfields began to get scores and went ahead for the first time with another counterattacking goal. Killoe rallied well and had restored the lead with points from Mark Hughes & Ronan Keogh when Sarsfield scored another goal to hold the advantage. With the game approaching full time, Mark Hughes levelled with a free from the top of the D. Sarsfields came searching for the winner and missed a free late on to go in front. From the resulting kick out Killoe worked the ball forward, creating an opportunity for Paddy Moran who hit a fantastic point from a difficult angle to win the game for Killoe deep in injury time. Full time score Killoe 0-18 Lucan Sarsfields 3-8. Well done to the team & management on reaching the Leinster Final where they will face Thomas Davis’s of Dublin. Details to be confirmed. 

Division 5 V Abbeylara

Commiserations to our division 5 team who lost out to Abbeylara on Sunday last in the league. Full time score Abbeylara 3-21 Killoe 2-12.
