Terrific Tyrell earns Reds deserved win at home

Knockananna supporters will remember the extra time in this match long after they have forgotten the result - so too will the men from the Goose bank but for a different reason.

Kilcoole had led all the way, even if was only by a point or two. The half time score was Kilcoole 0-11; Knockananna 2-2

Paul Lancaster, the former trainer of the team played at midfield for Knockananna in place of his brother Padraig who broke his shin bone in the match against An Tochar the week before and he played a blinder and had a big part in this very valuable victory.

The club also found a new forward in 17-year-old Brefney Doyle who scored two points on his debut.

Kilcoole gave an exhibition of point scoring; particularly from long range. If you can stick 16 between the posts without a single wide then you have every reason to expect a victory. Despite all of that Kilcoole somehow managed to come out on the wrong end of the score line.

They were a point ahead at the end of the hour and were then awarded an indirect free in. The kick was intercepted by Darren Flynn and the nifty wing back soloed up field and placed Kevin Tyrrell for the equaliser.

Tyrrell again won the kick out and blasted a goal to win the match.

They may not have matched the north Wicklow men in point kicking but grabbed their goal chances, and as they say, goals win matches.
