Kill GAA

In the Kill GAA Lotto draw on May 22, the numbers drawn were 3, 14, 18 and 20. There was no jackpot winner and only one lucky winner of the E200 prize so congratulations to L O’Neill c/o P Reid. Next week’s jackpot is E9,300.

The intermediate hurlers played two games last week. The lads were defeated by Moorefield by 2-15 to 2-13. The lads also drew with Naas on a score line of 2-07 to 1-10, the goals coming from Sam Temple and Nathan Fitzharris. This game was nip and tuck throughout and a late Naas goal snatched a draw for the home side. On a night when the performance of the team was excellent, Niall Fleming, Sam Temple and Ian Doyle where to the fore.

A weakened Division 1 U12 football team came up short away to Naas last Saturday. Solid performances from Eoin Murphy, Ryan Lam, Evan Fogerty and the outstanding goal keeping of Gavin Walsh means there are many bright points for this emerging squad.

The younger group of U12’s had a superb win away to Kilcock. This team displayed maturity beyond their years with fine performances throughout the field. Jamie Gaire, Harry Kirwin, Eoghan Armstrong & Criag Bates were outstanding on the night. Special words of thanks to Ciaran and PJ for the great work with this talented group.

The U14 League got underway last Sunday and with a fine home win against Suncroft, the team were well beaten away to a very solid Allenwood team the following Wednesday. Some good performances on both occasions from Matthew O’Loughlin, Glenn McEvoy, Sean Carter, Liam O’Leary and Cillian Armstrong leave the squad looking forward to the upcoming games.
