12 mins gone in Junior B: Kinvara 1-2, Kilbeacanty 0-0. A good start for Kinvara, but little so far between them in terms of play, although Kinvara are creating more chances.
18 mins gone in Junior B: Kinvara 1-3 lead Kilbeacanty 0-0. We on top, but important to get the scores as Kilbeacanty will have their purple patch at some stage.
Approaching halftime and Kilbeacanty are right back in this and taken the lead. They now in front 2-2 to 1-3.
Another goal for Kilbeacanty, They now lead 3-2 to 1-3.
Halftime here in Gort: Its Kilbeacanty 3-1 lead Kinvara 1-5. They stole in for three goals, leaving our goalie without a chance. Things will have to tighten up in that sector. Other than that, they only scored the one point, so are backs are generally playing well. Up front, we need a bit more in the second half. Also, our own goal was rather fortuitious as it went in direct from a long range free. Second half should be a right humdinger!
Junior B update: 25 mins left, and its Kilbeacanty out of the traps early in the second half. They have popped over two points, so now lead 3-3 to 1-5.
20 mins left in Junior B: Kilbeacanty 3-5 lead Kinvara 1-7. Both sides are now exchanging points, with Kinvara unable to make the margin smaller, while Kilbeacnaty cant stretch their lead.
Another couple of points for Kinvara: Its now Kilbeacanty 3-5, Kinvara 1-9. A two point game.About 15 mins left.
Now just the minimum between them. Kilbeacanty 3-5, Kinvara 1-10.
But wait.........a goal for Kilbeacanty. They now lead 4-5 to 1-10. Those goals are killing us!
5 mins left in Junior B: Kilbeacanty 4-7 lead Kinvara 1-11. Not looking good for us now.
Not over yet! A goal for Kinvara! I make it Kilbeacanty 4-8 to Kinvara 2-11. Only a goal in it. I think??? Time running out.
Game now in injury time: Kilbeacanty get another point. Now lead by 4.
All over in Junior B Championship. Kilbeacanty 4-10 beat Kinvara 2-11. Beaten by the better side, although there is much that we can improve on. Enjoy the Bank Holiday weekend!
