Kilflynn City Soccer
Kilflynn City 1 – 0 AC Athletic B
Good win for the boys again on Sunday 30th January at Mounthawk Park, Tralee which takes them top of the Kerry District Denny Division 3B league.
City started off the better team in the first half with the wind at their backs. Had a good few chances but couldn’t put them away. City went 1 up 25minutes in with Barry Mahony working a good one two with Matt Healy and finishing well to the bottom corner of the net.
Darragh O’Donoghue had another great chance to double the lead when he jumped through two AC defenders and when the ball broke it was kicked just wide of the post.
In the 2nd half AC Atheltic were the best team all the way through with them missing a couple of chances that went just wide, blocked or were deflected over the bar.
AC Athletic deserved to get a draw out of the game to be honest as they were well on top through the whole second half but Kilflynn dug in and grinded out the win.
A big victory to put them top of the league for the time being with a game in hand. Hopefully they can stay on this run and make the final.
