SENIORS

 

In the space of two short weeks, the Seniors season has taken an almighty slump following a 0-13 to 0-10 defeat to Killygarry on Sunday in Breffin that saw them knocked out of this year’s senior championship. 
 

The huge gap between Division Two football and Senior Championship was quite apparent and Kingscourt were left regretting another disappointing start that saw them trail 0-5 to 0-0 after the first quarter.  Despite that a great second quarter saw us lead 0-6 to 0-5 at halftime but failure to capitalise on any of the three great goal chances would prove very costly at the end.

 

Once again a sluggish start to a half saw Killygarry regain control and lead 0-11 to 0-7 with 15 minutes and despite outscoring  Killygarry toward the end, the Stars never really looked like gaining the win that was required.
 

Despite finishing third in the group, we still fall into a relegation play-off , and will play the losers of Mullahoran/Ballinagh in the first round of this.  Therefore, it will mean players and management needing to quickly re-group and ensure relegation does not become a real prospect.  With promotion not 100% guaranteed and relegation now needed to be fought off, it will be a fraught end to a season that had been going so well. 

 

JUNIORS

 

The Juniors will be looking for better success than the Seniors when they face a trip to Killygarry in the Junior B Championship quarter-finals on Wednesday evening. The winners of this will face Castlerahan in the semi’s.

 

Then on Sunday, they will face Knockbride at home at 1pm in their final league match where a victory is required to keep in the promotion chase.

 

U-16’s

 

Next up is the U-16 championship and Kingscourt open their campaign on Tuesday 11th August at the Quarter-Final stage where they face a tricky trip to face Division 2 league champions, Gowna.  With a number of this team part of an U-14 side that got knocked out of the championship in Gowna a couple of year back, they will be under no illusions as to the size of the task.
 

Should they manage to overcome Gowna, they would have a home semi-final agaisnt either Ballyhaise or Cavan Gaels, but we’ll not worry about that one just yet!

 
U-13’s
 

The 13’s open their league campaign with a trip to Bailieboro tonight (Monday).  Their next match will be at home to Crosserlough on Monday 24th.
