Killarney 0 – 2 Southern & Ettalong

Killarney’s recent below-par run of form continues as the Lionesses hand the Terriers their third loss in seven days with a 2-0 win.

In extremely rough conditions, Marcus Warwick’s Lionesses came out flying and all over a fatigued Killarney side who played a catch up game the previous Thursday night. Southern created multiple chances to start the contest but the Killarney defence held on as their goalkeeper was instrumental in keeping the score locked at 0-0. Adam Tait’s side enjoyed chances of their own but much like their oppositions, they could not capitalise as the first half remained scoreless.

The weather did not let up in the second half as the heavy rain continued to affect the field and the way the game was played. The inform Emily Diaz was able to break the deadlock for Southern when her rocket of a shot went under the leg of a Killarney defender and found the back of the net. The tug of war between the two sides continued as both teams fought hard in hopes of finding the next goal. The game went end to end with both teams coming close to scoring as the Southern goalkeeper produced some fantastic saves to deny the Killarney attack and keep her clean sheet intact. With less than ten minutes to go, Tatum Ansiewicz’s blistering speed became too much for the tired Killarney defence as her shot would find the top woodwork and the back of the net to close the game out.

Adam Tait voiced that his side has not had the run of play in recent weeks as they are prepared to overcome their recent performances. “Killarney again seemed to have nothing go right for us. We must learn to work hard for results.”

Marcus Warwick commended his Southern side who continued to fight hard for the whole match, despite the terrible weather. “Killarney fought hard, it’s their third game in seven days so all credit to them. We had a never give up attitude to keep up fighting for 90 minutes and get the win.”
