Soccer action

Only two Glencormac teams in action last weekend.

The U10s travelled to Newtown Reds and came away with a very comprehensive win. Freddie Martin, Ethan Mallon and Sean Levins all scored twice with Harry Martin, Woody Duff, Oisin Devlin and Grace Drapper also on the scoresheet. Manager John Hall was delighted with the teams performance and they continue to improve every week.

The Seniors were at home to Avonmore in a top of the table clash. Both teams had lost one game this season but won the rest so the stakes were high.

The Glens took the lead early on when Andrew McNamara powered a great header to the net after 5 minutes following a James Delahunty corner.

However, after the half hour mark, they conceded a penalty which Craig Williams saved but Avonmore buried the rebound.

Andrew McNamara hot a brilliant volley following great work by Josh O’Callaghan to restore the Glens lead after the restart but Avonmore hit back again soon after and both teams had a chance to win it but a draw was a faire result in the end. Mark Delahunty and Andrew McNamara were superb for the glens in a good team display.

GAA School of Excellence

Kilmacanogue National School was recently awarded with a GAA School of Excellence flag. A massive thanks to Jackie Kinch for all the hard work and to the School Principal Ann Marie Bourke who has been so accommodating to the Kilmacanogue GAA Club over her term and they are very grateful for both her and the schools support in promoting the game.
