Match Report - Mens Jack Lillis Cup, Sat 10th Feb 2024

Kinvara Utd 2-1 Bearna na Forbacha

Kinvara faced league leaders Bearna na Forbacha in the Jack Lillis Cup last Saturday. The first half got off to a great start with both teams having early chances, Kinvara's Ross Aibertini rattling the crossbar after a great piece of individual skill. Minutes later Gavin Deely pulled off a super save to keep the scores level, and they remained that way until half-time with the scores locked at 0-0.

Kinvara started the second half on top and broke the deadlock when Donal McMahon set up none other than our young superstar and top goal scorer Adam Noone who did not disappoint to put Kinvara 1-0 ahead .

5 minutes later, Kinvara put together a beautiful set piece when a long Jack McGinn throw found the head of Donal McMahon who rose highest to smash the ball into the back of the net to make it 2-0 to Kinvara.

Bearna na Forbacha got one back when Kinvara gave away a penalty, but Kinvara managed to hold on to the lead bringing on Patrick Cummins, Cathal Murray and Nathan Smith to help see the game out and take our place in the Semi-Final .

A great game, thanks to Bearna na Forbacha for travelling over and giving us a great battle on the day for what was also a nice birthday win for our own Rory Moran .
