Before the games both teams observed a minute silence for our good friend Rocky . And the lads made him proud with a great performance putting last weeks defeat well behind them .
It was a cagey game for the first 15mins in strong winds and heavy rain for most of the game but the opening goal came on 20minutes with good play down the right wing , Ethan crossed in and Johnny kav made no mistake heading us 1-0 in front . We started to really get on top from this point an missed a few good opportunity’s but on 35minutes we went 2-0 up , again good play on the right side Kevin Dowley squared the ball across the box and Kavanagh who slotted into the bottom left corner . 2-0 at halftime .
The second half started as the first had finished with a very high tempo and it didn’t take long for the next goal to come , on 50mins wayne kelly who was a thorn in piltowns side all game played a super ball in from the left wing found Ian synnott who headed home for 3-0. 5minutes later it was 4-0 , Ian synnott was fouled outside the Piltown box and Wayne kelly buried the resulting free kick . With the game won we were always in control but the tempo dropped a little an we made 5 changes . Kevin Dowley , johnny Kavanagh , Ian synnott , Ivan Tobin and Robbie walsh made way for Liam walsh , Jamie Moore , eoghan walsh , joey hanlon and Kieran o Brien . We missed another couple of chances in between and with only a couple of minutes left we gave away a silly penalty , ross o keeffe who was solid as a rock on goal all game saved the penalty . From the goal kick the Piltown keeper came out an passed to Wayne kelly who chipped him nicely to seal a 5-0 victory . A brilliant win in bad conditions leaves this team 2 games and 2 wins away from a league trophey .
