Leinster Junior Cup
Shane Burke sealed Kilmore Celtic a place in the Leinster Junior Cup third round in the most dramatic of fashions on Sunday.
Bellurgan had come back from two down and looked set to at the very least force extra time until Burke finished on the half volley in the 90 minute, securing the AUL Premier A side victory in another dramatic and entertaining clash.
The first half was a pretty even for the first twenty but Kilmore slowly got on top and on 25 took the lead.
Mark Lynch played Paul McMillian through on goal and the regular goal getter found the net from the ninth time this season from just inside the area.
Ten minutes later and the side who have yet to taste defeat this season doubled their tally. Daryl Curley won the ball high up the pitch and feed young front man Conor Brown who registered his fifth in five games.
With a two goal cushion going into the second half routine passage to the next round seemed likely for the hosts.
However, they were caught on the break and Bellurgan were handed an extra boost as a home player received a second yellow in the aftermath.
Kilmore held on despite being a man down up and until the 85 minute when a brilliant 30 yard finish drew United level.
At that stage the visitors would have be confident of registering an AUL Premier A scalp, but Kilmore’s response was amazing.
Indeed they managed to secure a late winner. It will be no surprise to Kilmore fans that their Stevie G equivalent was involved, McMillian chipped chip over one defender to put in Burke, who fired home on the half volley and decide the cup game in Celtic’s favour.
