Dundrum come good to knock Kilclief out of JFC

4 September 2019

A SERIOUSLY depleted Kilclief side went into this showdown full of apprehension and that was fully justified given Dundrum’s potential.

Despite this, Kilclief settled quickly and a point from Conan Hynds gave them the lead. Dundrum responded positively with Oisin McKibbin equalising in the fourth minute before taking the lead with a point from Cormac Venney. 

Midfield dominance was shifting in Dundrum’s favour and they seized the initiative with a goal from Aiden Fegan.

Dundrum were now firmly in the ascendancy and four unanswered points opened up a significant lead. 

As the last ten minutes of the half approached, Kilclief’s Connall Magee opened his tally with two points. However, Dundrum added further scores from Venney and Fegan to take a 1-8 to 0-3 interval lead.

Dundrum continued the onslaught after the break with Venney and Oisin McKibbin pushing them well clear.

Kilclief picked up the pace a little midway through the second half and points from Eoin Breen and Magee gave them some repite.

Things went from bad to worse for Kilclief as they lost Declan Merron to a red card.

This had an immediate impact on the game as Kilclief temporarily lost concentration and gifted Oisin McKibbin his side’s second goal.

Shea Savage netted a late consolation goal, but Dundrum were home and hosed by this stage.

Kilclief 1-6

Dundrum 2-14
