KILDANGAN v CASTLEMITCHELL     SENIOR FOOTBALL LEAGUE ROUND 3     26th June 2021

 

Our Seniors picked up two valuable League points with a good win at home against Castlemitchell on Saturday evening.

 

The visitors raced into an early four points to one lead with some superb scores from distance but Eoin Murphy pulled one back to keep Kildangan in touch. Castlemitchell stretched their lead to four before Murphy struck again, this time with a goal following good build up play from Adam Balmer and Dermot Hickey.

Just after the water break Castlemitchell pulled two clear before a blistering shot from Michael John Prendergast rattled the net to give Kildangan the lead for the first time in the game. Kildangan kept the momentum up with a Jack Drumm point from play and a free from wide on the right from Robert McGrath to leave it 2.4 to 0.7 at half time.

 

The third quarter was a busy affair with Kildangan outscoring the visitors by 1.5 to 0.4. Eoin Murphy was on target again as was Jack Drumm with two well taken frees and one from play from Robert McGrath. A long ball inside from Damien Broughall was tapped to the net by Conor Corrigan as the Castlemitchell goalkeeper advanced to leave the score at 3.9 to 0.11 as the whistle sounded for the second water break.

Both sides tired in the final quarter and swapped two points each with Drumm accounting for both of Kildangan’s scores.

 

Overall, the team management should be happy with that result. It was a good team performance with Paul Connaughton and Daragh Gilbert very strong in the centre of our defence while Eoin Murphy and Jack Drumm were constant threats up front.

 

We make the trip to Kill for our next game on Saturday evening.

EMS Copiers Senior Football League Division 4 Group B Round 2

Kildangan V Ballykelly

 Sunday 13th June 2021 

A warm More O’Ferrall Park was the venue for Kildangan’s opening round of their senior league which saw them facing local rivals Ballykelly. The Kildangan team were looking to build on last week’s championship final success but missing some key players and facing a good Ballykelly side meant that victory wasn’t meant to be for Kildangan as the hard fought game would end in favour of the visitors, on a scoreline of 0-12 to 2-12.

 

The game started well for Ballykelly as they set a marker for the game, gaining possession from the kick out and opening the scoring with a point before they quickly added to their lead with a goal in the opening minutes and making it difficult for Kildangan to get settled. But Kildangan didn’t let this stop them as they began to build from midfield, fielding the ball well and working it up the pitch, opening their scoring account with a free and a lovely point from play.

 

Ballykelly looked to get in on goal again but a superb save from young keeper Séan Fitzgerald ensured that Ballykelly would be denied on this occasion. A cynical foul from Kildangan midfielder Robert McGrath left Kildangan battling with 14 men and in this time Ballykelly made the most of their extra man outscoring Kildangan by 1-02 to 0-03. Kildangan finished the half with a lovely team score and left the score line at 0-06 to 2-05.

 

After the break the game flowed well with scoring chances taken by each team, keeping their leads building one point at a time. Ballykelly were keen to get in on goal but fantastic defending in the back and brilliant saves on numerous occasions by the Kildangan keeper meant that Ballykelly would build on their lead through points alone. Kildangan fought hard and managed to reduce the visitors lead to a goal after converted frees from Jack Drumm, Cian Murtagh and a point from play from Eoin Murphy.

 

Both teams saw a black card each in the game, while Ballykelly unfortunately saw two reds, playing the second half with a man down and losing another in the closing minutes but even with the man advantage Kildangan couldn’t manage to get keep the score board ticking and stop Ballykelly from building too. The two first half goals from Ballykelly proved the difference between the teams as the game finished 0-12 to 2-12.

 

In the end there was many positives that the Kildangan team and management could take from the game with stand out performances from a number of players, great scores and a performance they could be proud of. Ballykelly worked hard for their win and deserved it. Kildangan will look to build on this performance when they take on Milltown away next weekend!

Seniors Victory Over TMH Secures Place in the Championship Final

Joe Fox Tool and Plant Hire Reserve D Championship Semi-Final       Kildangan V Two Mile House         27th September 2020

The sun was shining and the breeze settled as Kildangan prepared to take on Two Mile House in the championship semi-final last Sunday evening in Hawkfield. Kildangan cemented their place in this semi-final are having secured maximum points in their 2 group games. With Kilcullen conceding in the opening round of the group stages and a well deserved victory over Sarsfields under their belts the lads trained hard in preparation for this game. The crowd gathered and anticipation was high as many hoped to see the team reach the final after a five year absence. The team's hard work and determination paid off and ensured the hopes of the crowd were achieved as a strong team performance in the second half saw the game finish 1-13 to 2-08.

As the match kicked off, Kildangan tried to get on the front foot gaining possession but loose passing allowed TMH to overturn the ball, earning themselves a scoreable free which was easily converted and settling them into the game. The loose passing continued giving TMH a further advantage allowing them to double their score. The score board showed 0-0 to 0-2 in favour of TMH before we managed to register our first score of the game after a good play by Stephen. Things looked up as we drew level through Jack after Aaron managed to win back the ball from the TMH kick out. But loose passing and miscommunication crept back in and caused us issues in defence, leading to a TMH goal. Two Mile House managed to register a further goal and a point as a result of errors and fouling before we managed to get going again through a converted free by Jack, won by Dermot, leaving the score 0-3 to 2-3. Daniel kept us in touch through a great solo effort, followed by a point from Rob and another by Stephen in between 2 further TMH points but we still trailed by 5 at half time as TMH we able to counter attack off the back of our errors and use them to their advantage, half time score 0-6 to 2-5. 

Half time saw two substitutions on the Kildangan team as Shane and Liam entered the play and a positional change saw Padraig move from midfield to full forward. 

As the second half kicked off, Kildangan seemed to pick up their pace, looking to leave the errors in the first half as Paul made a superb block to keep a TMH effort out, in which Aaron succeeded in winning their 45, passing it off quickly and a number of fouls from TMH helped us to move up the field as Daniel converted the resulting free. It didn't take Two Mile House long to get back in the swing of things scoring 2 points in reply bringing their lead to 6 points, with the scoreboard showing 0-7 to 2-7. But from then Kildangan managed to pick up their pace even further, beginning to dominate all over the pitch with strong defence leading to many of TMH's efforts sailing wide and our attack making great runs for the ball. The turning point of the game came just before the second half water break as Shane's pass landed in the hands of TMH defence but sheer determination from Padraig saw him win back the ball, taking on the keeper and putting the ball into the bottom corner of the net. This goal gave the lads the lift they needed to keep going with the margin reduced to 2 points and a quick break to prepare themselves for the final quarter. 

After the restart Kildangan never looked back scoring 4 unanswered points, 2 by Stephen and 2 by Daniel, putting Kildangan in the lead for the first time. TMH attempted to regroup but their goal effort was superbly blocked by Bryan close to the line, as play continued TMH won and converted a free, cutting the lead to a single point. Our last score summed up the the teams hard work and ensured they secured their place in the final as Jack's effort from the left side curled over the bar, leaving the final score 1-13 to 2-08.

With a much improved second half performance from all the lads, with many outstanding individual performances, they were deserved winners of a place in the final. The team now turn to preparations for this game in which they will take on a strong side from Ballyteague next Sunday evening (4th October) at 7:30pm in Hawkfield. We wish the team and management the very best of luck in their preparations for the game. Cill Daingin Abú!!
