KCS 2:18 / Mitchelstown CBS 1:6
Our senior hurlers ran out convincing winners against Mitchelstown CBS in the quarter final of the competition they won out last year. A very encouraging start with lots of possession and scoring chances was dampened by a well taken goal from the Mitchelstown full forward. To their credit our boys battled back with points from Richard Sweetnam and Aidan O’Donovan and some excellent work by Ryan Long in attack. While at the back great composure and endevour shown by Darragh Crowley and Gearoid O’Riordan. We led by four points at half time while playing against the breeze.
We started brightly again in the second half and took the opportunities that came our way. Arran O Mahoney finished off a great move with a bullet of a shot to the net , Sean Twomey then followed that up with a fine point from play. Our lads never looked back from that point and looked to build on that lead with every opportunity. Further goals from DJ Twomey and older brother Sean finished off the game with although it is worth noting the efforts of Eamonn Cogan, Conor McCarthy and Faelan Steward in the full back line who kept the opposition forwards at bay, to ensure our place in the semi final.
Congratulations to our senior squad member Luke Desmond who represented the Munster Schools team in the recent FAI Schools Interprovincial Tournament.
Our senior soccer squad is delighted to be participating in a futsal tournament in Bishopstown Community School this Friday. Sixteen teams are participating with the aim of qualifying for the finals in the coming weeks.
Our under 15 and first year squads have been training very hard in preparation for their upcoming Munster Cup group matches. The lads have shown great commitment through the large numbers attending each training session.
The under 14 hurling team enjoyed a blitz in PaircUíChaoimh last Wednesday, November 14th. Two KCS teams were entered for this blitz, again displaying the high level of interest there is for hurling in the school. They came up against schools such as Mayfield Community School, Hamilton High School Bandon, St. Colmans Community College Midleton and ColaistePobailBheanntraí. The lads acquitted themselves very well, braving the poor weather conditions and putting in competitive performances in each of their games and winning a couple. Overall, a great day was had by alland it was a fantastic experience for each of them to get to play at PáircUíChaoimh. They will continue to train in the coming weeks with their coaches Mr. Murphy and Vince Hurley in preparation for the Cork colleges u14 league which is due to commence with a game against ColáisteChraoiNaofa (CarraignabhFear) before Christmas.
