The Seniors followed up their opening weekend win with a hard fought 0-11 to 0-6 victory away to Drumgoon.  On a bitterly cold day (my weather forecasting is as good as my match predictions) and a heavy pitch this was always going to be a tough encounter but the side will take great confidence from this victory.


A tight first half saw both sides struggle in the conditions and despite good scores from Ryan McCormack & Colm Smith, late scores from Drumgoon saw the home side lead 0-4 to 0-3.


However, aided by a strengthening breeze, the Stars stepped up their efforts and early scores from Neil McCabe & Mark McKeown saw us regain the lead and stretch it to three points as we entered the final quarter.  A superb goal line clearance from Shane Gray kept us ahead and while Drumgoon rallied late on, further scores from Joe McMahon & Sean Og Gargan sealed the victory.


With two victories from two, it’s been a very pleasing start to the campaign, and the manner of this victory will give the side tremendous confidence.  They now have a two week break before they resume things with a home match against Ballyhaise on Friday 27th March at 8.30pm.




The Juniors will hope to continue the good run within the club at the moment when they open their Division 4 campaign with a home match against Drumalee this Sunday (15th) at 2pm.  Invariably, this side competes strongly in Division 4, and with the large numbers at training, competition for places will be intense.  All connected with the team will be hopeful be getting of to a winning start but with Drumalee looking to gain revenge for their Seniors defeat earlier this month, a close contest could be in store




The Minors retained their unbeaten league start at the weekend with a battling point gained in a 0-7 to 0-7 draw against Ballyhaise on Saturday afternoon down the park.  In tough conditions, scores were at a premium throughout the game and the visitors lead 0-4 to 0-3 at halftime.  The game continued with little in it throughout the second half, and when Kingscourt were reduced to 13 men the game looked lost.  However, tremendous spirit was shown by the young Stars, and a Terry Reilly point salvaged a share of the spoils, and keeps the side in contention for the semi-finals.


Next up is a visit to Bailieboro next Saturday and a match against Killan Gaels.  Throw in is probably 12 noon, but sure bring a few empty bottles & tins with you and if it’s changed you can nip down to the recycling centre and do your bit for the environment while you wait for 2pm!




Juvenile training has started with the U-12’s, U-14’s & U-16’s with challenge matches apparently taking  place.  With the leagues due to start within the next mth or so, we’ll hopefully keep you uptodate with how they get on (Ye know who ye are!!)
