NKL vs Ballyduff

posted 15 Feb 2016, 03:41 by Shane O'Connell
The Knocknagoshel senior team kicked off the 2016 season with a heavy defeat to Ballyduff in Division 2 of North Kerry League on Valentines Day.

Knock who started with a very young and inexperienced team got off to a very poor start and Ballyduff hit them for 5 very soft first half goals. Half time score Knocknagoshel 0-2 Ballyduff 5-5.

Knock dominated the second half and outscored Ballyduff 5 points to 1. Knock were very wasteful and kicked a number of wides. The final scoreline of Knocknagoshel 0-7 to Ballyduff 5-6 is not a true reflection of the match and the Knock performance particularly in the second half deserved more.

Knocknagoshel Team:
Geroid Kelly, John Brosnan, Padraig Reidy, Mike Murphy, Darragh O'Connell, Conor Sheehan, Denis Collins, Mike Brosnan, Mike Walsh, Richie Cotter, Dan Roche, David O'Donoghue, Steven O'Connell, Niall Barrett, David Cahill.
Subs: Daniel Leahy, Cillian O'Connor

Ballyduff Team:
K O'Connor, J Slattery, C Kearney, W Nolan, P O'Connell, A O'Carroll, R Costelloe, P O'Connell, A O'Carroll, M Hussey, JP Leahy, J O'Regan, J Houlihan, E Joy, D Goulding
