Kilmore sprung the offside trap on 4 minutes but their number 9 James McGivern was quickly closed down by the advancing Olympic Ryan Walsh who bravely blocked the goal bound shot writes Cyril McKinney.
Kilmore responded immediately and in the space of two minutes their hard working number 7 Thomas Macklin twice had the Olympic keeper saving with his feet but as the half went on both defences were on top as both teams cancelled each other out. The referee had to be alert to rule on many contentious off side decisions. He did well to keep his cards in the pocket as the tackles started to fly in.
On 69 minutes the McGivern sprung the offside trap and lobbed over the advancing keeper only to see his shot drift just wide of the Olympic post.
