Match Report- Adult Camogie League Div 2 Round 5

Kill 2-09 Moorefield 2-05

Our Senior Camogie Team played their 5th round of Division 2 league at home on Monday evening against a very strong Moorefield side.

The game began with end to end play and both teams tapping over the points. Every score was hard fought with both teams battling to go ahead. Fortunately, it was Kill who pulled ahead with a goal from Louise Dunne and left Kill leading at half time with a score off Kill 1-06 to Moorefield 0-04.

The second half saw Moorefield come out fighting and within a few minutes had scored a goal and 1 point on the trot. The Kill girls dug deep and were determined to keep the lead and with a couple of great points scored by Michaela Kavanagh, Trina Temple and Caoimhe Broderick, Kill kept in front.

When Moorfield scored a second goal the Kill girls held their nerve and their battling form and when Sarah Cullen put the sliotar in the back of the net from a well taken free it was a fitting end and well-deserved win for the Kill Team.

Scorers for Kill:

  • Sarah Cullen 1-03
  • Louise Dunne 1-01
  • Michaela Kavanagh 0-02
  • Trina Temple 0-01
  • Caoimhe Broderick 0-02

Best for Kill Were:

  • Louise Dunne
  • Aoife Mangan
  • Trina Temple
  • Aisling Cahill

We need your help to Upgrade the Floodlights

Kill GAA is looking for your support this year with the 2019 Kildare Club Draw.

How Kill GAA earn money from this draw

60% of all monies raised on tickets sold will go towards the Club to help upgrade our Floodlights. There is no doubt this will be a great asset to the club, especially in the shorter evening throughout the year.

At present, our lights are not up to the National Playing Standards to play certain league matches.  As a result, in the darker evening, we are faced with having to find pitches away to play these matches. 

The Executive Committee present and past have been fundraising and saving to upgrade these floodlights for a couple of years now. The dream would be to have the work completed before our evenings get short again.

  • 31st May 2019

Working together Picking Stones

Next “Morning of Picking” Sunday the 19th May.

It’s been some time we reckon since a field was picked for stone in North Kildare.

But last Sunday morning that’s what happened when our members answered the call for help to clear our New Pitch of surface stones.

Despite the weather the turnout was incredible from parents’, mentors and players alike.

There was practically a party atmosphere as friends and neighbours chatted and laughed while they worked the field!!

The coffees and pizzas provided by the Playground Cafe were very welcomed and helped everyone get through an enormous amount of work.

The Club Development Committee want to sincerely thank everyone for their time and effort and because everyone seemed to have such a good time, they have scheduled another “Morning of Picking” for Sunday the 19th May.

We look forward to seeing you

Match Report – Senior Hurling League DIV 3 Rd3

RosGlas v Kill, 25th April 2019

Kill recorded an emphatic win away to Ros Glas last Thursday evening in round 3 of the league. The result was never in doubt after about 15 mins of the first half when first Declan Keating and then Mikey Russel crashed home goals. With Ross Doyle accurate for placed balls and play and Niall Gorry and Kevin Downey also chipping in with scores, Kill led by 2-8 to 0-3 at half time. There was no let-up from Kill in the second half, Deco adding another goal, the match finished on a score line of 3-16 to 1-6.

This was a good overall team performance but apart from the scorers a few players stood out. Daniel Wynne took going low to pick up the ball to the extremes and on a few occasions came up with the ball in his mouth. Overall the backs and mid-field were very solid, restricting the opposition to 1-4 from play. But Ter Murphy stood out. Playing at wing back he gave by far the most assists on the night. In fact, he had a hand in all of Kill’s scores.

Team:-

  • P. Kelly
  • D. Wynne
  • C. O’Toole
  • T. Murphy
  • A. O’Brien
  • A. Gath
  • M. Cocoman
  • S. Claffey
  • R. Doyle (0-8)
  • M. Russel (1-0)
  • D. Keating (2-3)
  • K. Downey (0-2)
  • N. Gorry (0-3)
  • J. Guerin

Challenge match for our U13 Boys

Kill v Newtown Gaels

On Thursday 25th April, Our U13 boys played Newtown Gaels in a challenge match in our club.

Newtown Gaels were out of traps early and very strong in attack.

Our lads went into half time down 4 goals and 6 points.

The second half was a different story our boys came out on fire taking every opportunity presented to them.

The game finished 

  • Newtown Gaels 6-12 
  • Kill 5-14

Only a point in it at full time.  Our boys showed real character and determination to come so close to winning.

The ref’s comments at full time

“I never refed a challenge match with the passion and will to win as this game had”

A credit to both teams

Thanks to our supporters for the encouragement on a dirty wet night.

A lot of these lads now play the Feile Shield Semi-final in our club on Sunday 28th.
