Kilkishen boys and girls teams competed in the FAI 5 a-side schools competition at Lee's Road today. Our boys team were competing in a group with Cooraclare, Kilfenora and Gael Scoil Shannon. In the opening game the boys had a narrow victory over Gael Scoil Shannon winning 2-1. The Kilkishen goals were scored by Mikey Canny and Fionn Hickey. Adrian Kelly had a great game in goals. The next game was very close but with Kilkishen chasing a 1-0 deficit they conceded late on to lose 2-0 to Cooraclare. In the final group game Kilkishen faced the unbeaten Kilfenora boys in a thrilling contest. A great run and cross from Darragh Moroney was converted by Mickey Canny to give Kilkishen the lead. With minutes remaining Kilfenora were awared a free kick and after a goalmouth scramble the ball was stroked home for the equalizer. With time almost Darragh Moroney drove forward and unleashed an unstopable shot to the back of the Kilfenora net. The final whistle blew resulting in a great win for the Kilkishen boys.
Three teams, Kilkishen, Kilfenora and Cooraclare all finished with 6 points with only one team to progress. Goal difference is all that separated Kilkishen from qualifying as group winners. Well done to the entire panel of boys for there efforts during the competition.
