Buttevant U-11s win a nine-goal thriller

U11 SCHOOLBOYS CUP Kanturk 3 Buttevant 6 THIS cup tie was played in dreadful conditions at Kanturk on last Saturday .

Overhead conditions and a swirling wind made football very difficult, however a great second half performance from Buttevant, saw the locals advance to the next round.

A first half goal from Killian Cotter, following good work from both Thomas Duignan and Ruari O'Mahony put us in front , however Kanturk went in two goals to one ahead at the break.

Buttevant were much the better side in the second half and a further goal from Cotter had us back level. A hat trick of goals from Ruari O'Mahony and a goal from the lively Thomas Duignan gave us a deserved six goal to three win and into the last thirty two in the local cup competition.

Kanturk's three goals came from Cameron Hendry, Jordan Dennehy and Daniel O'Connell.
