Dicksboro 1-8 Kilmoganny 0-8

Dicksboro Seniors had a great win today over fancied Kilmoganny. Our better start, putting 1-1 on the scoreboard within three minutes put us on a good footing, the goal coming from Marco Ruessman. DD Molloy was called into action on the goal shortly after, blocking down a Kilmoganny shot from three yards. Kilmoganny had to wait until the ninth minute to score their first point, but at this stage Paul O'Flynn had helped himself to his second point. It has to be said that the 'Boro were playing the far better football in the first half, patiently holding on to the ball and working it down field and well deserved their halftime lead of 1-6 to 0-3.

Kilmoganny came into the game a bit more in the second half, a shot driven right across our goal line in less than a minute of the start was a sign of their intention to bring the game to us. Another Kilmoganny effort after seven minutes rattled our crossbar. Undeterred, our defence stuck to their task and never panicked, DD again being called on to pull off a save midway through the half, while Ciaran Gough's blocking frustrated the opposition forwards. With Kilmoganny piling on the pressure, the ball was again cleared from our goal line, this time from Kevin Nolan. Two 'Boro points in the second half, one each from Paul and Shane Maher was enough to keep our opponents at bay. A lot of spirit was shown by this 'Boro team today. FT Dicksboro 1-8 Kilmoganny 0-8.
