Kildimo/Pallaskenry – Blackrock Match Prediction | 06-10-2019 08:45

Another free for Adam Butler after Darren OConnell had been fouled, as he burst through on goal, saw us move into a 7-point lead about halfway through the first half. He beat his marker to the ball and turned provider for Jack OKeeffe, who showed lovely, quick hands to pop the ball over the bar before he could be closed down. Adam Butler then converted his first free of the game early in the second half, and Darren OConnell also became more prominent in attack. The Blackrock goalkeeper emerged with the ball, but was dispossessed by Barry OConnell, who did brilliantly to sidestep away from the Blackrock backs and then buried the ball into the bottom corner. But we certainly had the better of the opening stages of the second half and moved to extend our advantage early on, and we soon had raised a green flag of our own to cancel out that late first-half goal for Blackrock.

John Chawke punished the misdemeanour by landing a monster free from deep inside his own half. Throughout this game, momentum was huge, and both sides had purple patches at different stages. But despite this, we responded brilliantly to this run of scores to find our own purple patch before the break, hitting four points in a row ourselves. Blackrock would have their first real purple patch in response to our three-point lead, and would rattle off four points without reply, including two from placed balls. Blackrock are a fine side and at their best, move the ball very quickly between the lines. Blackrock did hit a free to reduce the gap to just two points again, but when Kevin OConnell did brilliantly to dispossess his man, and came out of defence, he was fouled.

We lost Tony McCarthy to a black card in the first half, which was a massive blow but we rallied well in the second half and again, it was our ability to get goals that proved crucial; Liam OSullivan also keeping up his run of goalscoring form. A late goal from Darren OConnell saw us defeat our neighbours Ballybrown in the quarter-final of the Junior Football Championship. JUNIOR A FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP QUARTER-FINAL: Kildimo/Pallaskenry 3-6 Ballybrown 1-11. It was a tightly-contested battle as youd expect from a match between neighbours and we just about did enough. It means that we have once again proceeded to the County Semi-Final; a stage further than last year but a stage at which we fell in both 2015 & 2016. Its good to be back in a semi-final, but Ballybrown made us work hard for the victory.

It meant we led at half-time: Kildimo/Pallaskenry 2-13 Blackrock 0-11. But as they did before, Blackrock came roaring back into the game and again, they would land four scores in a row to cut the deficit to just those two goals again. However, we would finish the half out strongly. Kyle almost doubled his tally for the entire season in the first half alone, another point for him saw his count rise to 1-5, a phenomenal score from play in a half of hurling. It was a really good first half of hurling from us, particularly scintillating in attack and we were unlucky not to have a third goal as Jack OKeeffe rounded the goalkeeper and finished to the net but was adjudged to have taken too many steps. Conor Staff rounded out the half by taking the ball on through the middle and landing a score on the run. A brilliant team move involving a number of players saw the ball worked carefully to Barry OConnell, and Barry converted to take his personally to 1-2 and a total of 2-10 from play from our half-forward line in the first half. They hit a lot of frees in that first half but also started to get a couple of points from play despite the best efforts of our backline.

When Peter Nash picked out Ruair Maher in space around the middle of the field, Ruair opened the shoulders to land a great score. Kyle powered past his marker and lashed the ball past the helpless goalkeeper. Adam Butler then landed a free for us, our only score from a placed ball in what was a superb first half of hurling. We continued our whirlwind start over the next ten minutes, as we simply blew our opponents away with clever movement, strong running and excellent scoretaking. Ruairi then replicated his first point with another similar strike from way out the field before we raised our second green flag of the half. This gave us a 9-point lead, Blackrock having landed a solitary free. After starting the attack, Barry drifted into space in behind, he was picked out cleverly by Ruair Maher; Barry put the head down and rifled the ball into the back of the net, his 4th goal of the Championship campaign! This it was our other county player, Kyle Hayes, who saw the bit of space in front of him. Kyle Hayes was next to get in on the act, taking his man on and popping the ball over the bar from the left wing. We flew out of the traps, laying down a marker right from the off and Barry OConnell had a goal right from the throw-in. Then great work rate from Adam Butler saw him flick the ball away from the defender to Jack OKeeffe, who cleverly recycled the ball outside to Can Hayes for him to fire the ball over the bar.

Darren as our top goalscorer in last years Championship with 4; he has already beaten that in less games, at a higher grade this year as this was his 5th goal of the season (and our 16th goal in 7 Championship games, the highest in the division)! When we needed scores in the second half, we turned to our bench and they duly delivered; we managed to get 2-3 from our subs which is a very decent return. It wasnt long after when another substitute, Shaun Barry, put in a great tackle only a minute or so after coming on. It was a great run but as he came inside, the ball was flicked away but who was there, only goalpoacher supreme, Darren OConnell who finished the ground shot to the net from a tight angle. It was a huge moment in the game to really stall the Blackrock momentum and they wouldnt score for the rest of the game as they chased goals. Great persistence from Jack OKeeffe saw him keep the ball in over on the right touchline and he then set off on a run along the endline. Liam Griffin popped over a free after Shaun Barry had been fouled, before we finished the game off in style. Shaun put in the hit, turned the ball over, headed for goal and buried the ball to the back of the net, across the goalkeeper. They werent forthcoming with Kevin OConnell safe as a house at full-back. Peter Nash helped drive us on in that second half, getting on a huge amount of ball and when we won a sideline; up stepped Liam Griffin to cut the ball over the bar for our first score of the half. At this point, we found our second wind and drove on again; the half-back line really getting on top and Keel Moloney and Conor Staff linking up a couple of times down the left wing.

Well done to the management team of John Barry, Brian Butler, Liam Hayes, Brian Barry and Alan Fitzgerald for all their efforts and we still a Football Championship Semi-Final to look forward to! After a great win in the City/South Final, we were hoping to bring home a second Minor A title in three years but sadly, it was not to be. COUNTY MINOR HURLING SEMI-FINAL: Kildimo/Pallaskenry 0-16 Croagh/Kilfinny/Rathkeale 2-16. There was disappointment for our minor hurlers on Wedesday night, as they were knocked out of the Minor Hurling Championship by a well-organised and skilful Croagh/Kilfinny/Rathkeale, who had previously won the West Championship. Again, goals proved the difference in Rhebogue as our opponents managed to get two while preventing us from raising any green flags. It was a disappointing end to the season, but at least we did pick up some silverware along the way and showed there is some great talent in the parish and the future is certainly bright!

It was also great to see Mikey Dillon get his first Championship start of the season; Mr. It was a fine performance, but we will need to reach another level next weekend in a county semi-final as we take on Garryspillane, a side very experienced in the knockout stages! Keep an eye on social media and the Team App for details of next weeks County Semi-Final! Brendan OShea became our 22nd player to make an appearance in Championship this season, again showing the importance of panel depth as we have had a number of injuries this season! Liam Griffin rounded off the scoring with another pointed free after Jack OKeeffe had been fouled, giving us a 12-point victory. For a man who made his debut in 1995, it is a credit to the man that he is still delivering for his club all these years later! Versatility himself is well-known for his ability to fill in in a number of positions and this time, he slotted into the full-back line when there was a vacancy and did a great job! Well done to all involved; the management team of Chris Sexton, Damien Gillane, Pat Enright, Jim Maher, Paudie Daly, anna McGarrigle and Alan Fitzgerald have done a great job thus far and we wish them all the luck heading into next weekends semi-final!
