A depleted 3rd division side made the short trip to Kilmacow on a windy Friday evening and the squad was further effected with Sean cashin injured in the warmup and Joey after 5 minutes.
Further misery with a penalty conceded after 10 minutes.
After a terrible start we managed to get a hold on the game and we’re helped with some great goal keeping from Jamie Cody making his first appearance in goal since U11.😃
1-0 at half time and the lads were very positive at the break and rightfully so as we were well in the game.
We started very well against the wind and played some great football with the two Adams creating great openings in the middle. Mid way through we were caught with a long ball in the wind and an error at the back allowed Kilmacow in for an easy second goal.
The lads kept going at Kilmacow and Adam Croke forced a foul with some brilliant individual play which Moore tucked away cleverly into the bottom corner.
2-1 and the lads came back to life.
Chances came and went for us and could have left with all 3 points but instead were caught for a third goal to seal the win for our neighbors.
Even with 12 players missing this evening the team played very well against a Kilmacow side made up of 1A and 3rd division players.
The squad are chomping at the bit for the next fixture and with a trip to Carrick next Sunday it’s the perfect game to pick up our first win and get the season up and running.
HON THE COIN 🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬
