Our senior team made the trip to Brinny on tue. night to play Valley Rovers in a play off of the Summer Cup.Valleys opened the scoring with two points in succession. Kate replied to this with a great goal.Shauna Landers in goal brought off a great save to deny Valleys a certain goal.They struck two more points before Angela Walsh struck a long ball which went just under the crossbar to make it goal number two for Killeagh.Our full-back line Aoife Walsh,Marie Smiddy and Deirdre Cunningham helped clear a lot of ball up field and it was well used up front with Roisin Culligan and Kate both scoring points.The injured side line panel were finding the tension on the line harder than playing the game and urged on those on the field with words of encouragement.Valleys had three points on the trot.Kate pointed and yet again Angela goaled.Valleys had a further two points and Ang pointed to leave us 3-4 to 9pts ahead at half time.
Valleys began the second half with two points,yet again we were saved by Shaunas great goalkeeping,Valleys had two more points.We went to sleep and they struck a goal and a further two points. It looked like we were on the slippery slope of defeat but never say die!! Kate began the resurrection with a well taken 65.We piled on the pressure which in turn made Valleys foul and Kate pointed the frees. We were level and all was now to play for and this we did,every ball counted and who better to count on than Angela as she delivered two balls over the bar to see us to victory .A special well done to the younger members of our panel who all played so well on the night.This victory sees us in the last four of the Summer Cup with Ballincollig Glen Rovers and Eire Og.
