Last 8 is Great for Killorglin:

Killorglin 14’s 3-1 Naas 14’s:

Killorglin 14’s are the last Kerry team standing in this seasons National Cup following a 3-1 come from behind win at the Dragon’s Den All Weather.

The visitors started the brightest and Killorglin keeper Alex O’Connor had to alert to hold an Alex Bergin free kick. Bergin was proving dangerous from dead balls and was again on target with a free inside the first ten minutes which O’Connor also saved.

Killorglin then broke and thought they had gone ahead when Gar Hassett put the ball in the Naas net from a Dylan O’Neill pass but the attacker was off side when he received the pass.

The opening goal came on the 10th minute when Naas took the lead. Bergin was again the deliverer of a great corner. O’Connor, who had made good save to conceded the corner, was under pressure in a crowd of players. He did manage to get a fist to the ball but Finn Galligan managed to head the ball home.

Killorglin were almost 2 down a few minutes later but Roan Moriarty made a great goal saving tackle. Gar Hassett and Dara Purcell were proving very dangerous up front and in the 30th minute the sides were level.

Killorglin played the ball back to Naas keeper Cian KellY after an injury. His throw out was too casual and Hassett robbed the defender and play the ball to Purcell. He cut into the box from the right and drilled the ball low across the keeper and into the bottom corner of the net to make it 1 all.

Into the second half and Killorglin began to take control and went ahead after 15 minutes. Dylan O’Neill and Eoin Clifford combined to set up Purcell who rounded the keeper to put Killorglin ahead 2-1.

Naas will be wondering how they didn’t equalise and they had at least two great chances. Aidan Carmody headed wide when it looked easier to score and then they hit the post. With time running out Naas threw everything at Killorglin and even had their keeper coming forward. Killorglin should have wrapped it up on a break but Purcell’s effort was saved despite a 2 on 1 break.

However with 5 minutes to go Killorglin did make it secure, again on another break. Hassett and Purcell took the ball forward and they played in Martin Foley who curled the ball around the keeper to send the huge Killorglin crowd wild with delight.

The final whistle blew and Killorglin march on to the last 8 and a home quarter final against Mervue United.

Heartbreak for The Park at 13’s:

St Brendan’s Park suffered penalty heart break in their National Cup Last 16 as they went down 4-2 on penalties at Christy Leahy Park. It had all started so brightly for home side as they went 2-0 up in the first half. Mervin Shambala and Sean McGrath were on the mark for the Park.

However they conceded a goal right after half time to give Leixlip renewed hope and they equalised inside the last quarter to send the game into extra time.

Neither side scored in the extra time and so onto penalties. Mervin Shambala and Colin Walsh were successful from the spot but with Leixlip scoring 4 it is they who progress to the Last 8.
