Kilmihil finally defeated Naomh Eoin -O'Curry's in the U21B Final after extra time but if we had been more accurate with our shooting the game would have been wrapped up long before the final whistle. Factor in 24 wides and you get the picture. Stephen Coughlan (playing at wing back) scored the opening point inside the first minute. Naomh Eoin-O'Curry's enjoyed their best period from the 5th to 9th minute scoring 3 points without reply. From there on Kilmihil dominated but frustratingly struck wide after wide and failed to score. In the final minutes Naomh Eoin-O'Curry's added a further point and just to add to our troubles they scored a goal from a penalty in the 30th minute. Half time score: Kilmihil 0-2 Noamh Eoin-O'Curry's 1-5. Six points down, we needed a goal to get back into the game. Whatever the mentors said at half time it had the desired effect, within a minute Noel Mc Guane scored a goal and by the sixth minute the margin was down to a point. It should have been wrapped up from there but again we wasted scoring chances and Naomh Eoin-O'Curry's fought their way back with points in the 16th & 18th minute. Martin O'Leary scored a goal to level the score in the 25th minute and again we had a number of chances to win it but failed to score and full time the sides finished level at 2-4 to 1-7. In the first period of extra time Kilmihil's superior fitness came to the fore. Martin O'Leary put Kilmihil ahead with a point from a free and Colm Callinan added another from a free just before the break. Ronan Flaherty stretched the lead to 3 after the break and just as we were beginning to breathe a sigh of relief Naomh Eoin-O'Curry's fought back with points in the 4th and 6th minute to reduce the margin to a single point. Martin O'Leary had the last word with a point in the 9th minute to leave the final score at 2-8 to 1-9. Scorers: Martin O'Leary 1-4 (2f), Noel Mc Guane 1-0, Colm Callinan 0-2, Stephen Coughlan & Ronan O'Flaherty 0-1 each. Team Lineout: Cormac Dennehy, Gary Mc Mahon, Anthony Downes, Eoin Callinan, Stephen Coughlan, Stan Lineen, David Coughlan, Jack Browne, Niall Pender, Ronan O'Flaherty, Colm Callinan, Conor Egan, Noel Mc Guane, Martin O'Leary & David Egan.

A strong gale blowing across the field favoured Kilmihil in the first half. Martin O'Leary was first to score from a free after 5 minutes but Kildysart were fired up for this encounter and enjoyed their best spell scoring points in the 10th and 12th minute. Shane Egan levelled with a free after 14 minutes and a minute later Martin O'Leary slotted the ball passed the Kildysart goalkeeper for the only goal of the match. Kilmihil were in the driving seat after that and finished the half 1-5 to 0-3. If Kildysart were to make any impression they needed to get an early score but Mark Coughlan edged Kilmihil ahead with an excellent point after 2 minutes and Kildysart failed to make any impression on the Kilmihil defence. Seventeen minutes had elapsed before they got their opening score from a free but by this stage it was too little to late. David Ryan, back from injury made an impact when he came on scoring 3 points to seal victory on the score of 1-10 to 0-6. Scorers: Martin O'Leary 1-3, David Ryan 0-3, and 0-1 each from Shane Egan (f), Stan Lineen, Mark Coughlan & Timmy Ryan (f). Team Lineout: Eoin Downes, Johnny O'Sullivan, Allyn Dalton, Laurence Murray, Stephen Coughlan, Mark O'Connell, Anthony Downes, Timmy Ryan, Niall Pender, David Coughlan, Mark Coughlan, Declan Downes, Martin O'Leary, Stan Lineen & Shane Egan. Subs. Colm Callinan for David Coughlan, David Ryan for Colm Callinan, Philip Ryan for Declan Downes & Sean King for Shane Egan. Kilmihil have now reached the Intermediate Final for the second year in succession and hopefully we will have better success against Miltown Malbay on this occasion.
