Just one of those days !

Claremorris 2 Killala 0

Killala U-16 traveled to Claremorris hoping to retain their 3rd place in the league but it just wasn’t to be.
Claremorris opened the scoring after just 2 minutes after a defensive error allowed one of the Claremorris strikers through to round the Killala keeper and slot the ball home.
However for the rest of the game Killala pounded the Claremorris goal which will need a new paint job after being struck 3 times in the first half and 6 times in the second not including a venemous strike by Killala’s Mattie Kane which had the Claremorris keeper well beat but shook both posts.
The home side went in at half time shocked to be 1-0 up.
Killala piled on even more pressure in the 2nd half and were denied an equaliser by the Claremorris goalkeeper (man of the match) who pulled off superb saves to deny Killala’s Jason Carroll, Ryan Sweeney, Cian Noone, James Noone, Daragh O’Boyle, Simon Helly & Mattie Kane.
Killala pushed and probed for the equaliser and left just Cian Monaghan and Eoin O’Neill in defense to handle the non existant Claremorris attack but it was just one of those days when deep into injury time Claremorris cleared one of Killala’s 12 corners and with their only decent passing movements of the game punished Killala with the final score of the game to have it finish 2-0 to the home side.
Both teams left the pitch scratching their heads at the score for different reasons.
Killala team: J. Flannelly, P. Murphy, C.Monaghan, J. Carroll, E. O’Neill, J. Noone, D.Haugh, C.Noone, M.Kane, D.O’Boyle and S.Helly. Subs: R.Sweeny for D.Haugh (50 min)
