KILMALLOCK UTD: U12 Boys Premier League - Ballylanders 2 - Kilmallock 4. Good competitive game in cold and mucky conditions. Kilmallock took the lead through Jamie Todd who followed up on a save from their keeper. Ballylanders came back strong but found stand-in keeper Sean Hamm hard to get past. Eventually the hosts drew level before Conor Hanley struck an unstoppable shot into the coner from the edge of the box. Again the hosts equalized on the stroke of half time. Kilmallock got stronger in the second half with Sean Barrett pulling the strings in the middle and it was his free which led to Jamie’s second from a header. Again Ballylanders pushed but the defence and keeper stood tall and Cillian Keane finished the hosts off with a late goal on the break. Best for Kilmallock were Sean Barrett, Jamie Todd and Sean Hamm. Under 14 Girls: Kilmallock 3 – Corbally 1, goals from Brona Mulcahy, Orla McCarthy and Bernie O’Reilly.
