The senior footballers were defeated by Ellistown in round 2 of the league last weekend on a score line of 1-15 to 3-06. This game was played with a high intensity and the lads were unlucky not to get a draw near the end when a Alan Wren shot came off the post. Kill started brightly and scored an early goal from Tony Spain, however Ellistown fought their way back into the game and where only a point behind at the break. In a game where Ellistown kicked some great point they held on for a three point win. Best for Kill where Kevin Corrigan, Davey O’Kelly and Robbie Spain.
The junior footballers started there league campaign off with a defeat on Monday last against neighbours Eadestown on a score line of 2-11 to 1-10, the lads played some decent football in patches and with ten minutes to go where a point ahead, but the home side fought back for victory. Special mention must go to John O’Brien and Paul Kirwan who were excellent and got some very good scores.
