KILTEELY/DROMKEEN GAA CLUB NOTES
KDGAA 2-18 v Patrickswell 2-18
This was an enthralling game, it may not have been for the purist but the momentum swung two and fro throughout.
After an exchange of points a scything run by Denis O Dea through the hearth of the Well defence setup Danny Holton for an excellent goal. From there the teams exchanged pointed frees to the Well stuck for goal. We restored our 3 point lead when Denny Ahern struck a load shot for another goal.
Once again the teams traded points to leave the half time score 2.10 to 1.10 in favour of Kilteely Dromkeen. We lost Brian O Grady to injury 10 minutes into the second half, by then Patrickswell had drawn level aided by a run of pointed frees. Disaster struck when we were reduced to 14 players and soon after Patrickswell struck for a goal to take a 3 point lead.
Things looked extremely perilous but we dug deep as Denny Ahern converted 3 frees and Denis O Dea pointed from play as we again nudged in front. Patrickswell pointed 2 frees to again lead. However deep into injury time that man Denny Ahern kept his nerve to point a free to level it up.
There was still time for someone to grab a winning score but that would have been unfair toboth teams as the ref finally blew the full time whistle.
The players showed great heart as they played the last 20 minutes a man down in energy sapping heat.
