LSL Senior Sunday
Killester United came from behind to go six points clear at the top of the Intermediate pile on Saturday night.
Gary Howlett’s men had their 100 percent start ruined by Firhouse last week, but bounced back to register a sixth win from seven to leave them six points clear of St Mochtas and Clover at the top of Senior Sunday.
It looked like it could be back to back bad weeks for United when Drumcondra opened the scoring in the 18th minute. Adam Whelan found the top corner to put the hosts in front.
Killester didn’t panic and did continue to look a threat, but had to wait until the 38th minute to find an equaliser. Darren Kavanagh whipped a ball into the box from out left and Lennie McMillian put the ball away to leave it level at the break.
Drums had the better of the early exchanges after the turn, but Killester defended well to prevent them falling behind for a second time.
The side who are fast building a reputation as potential title challengers then took the lead in style. Half way through the second half Mark Ryan picked up a ball 30 yards out, took one touch, had one look and banged the ball into the back of the net.
Drums remained in contention, but Killester showed the dept of their squad as Reece Weldon came off the bench to fire home Stephen Chambers knock down with his first touch and put the result beyond doubt.
The summer signing almost had a second a minute later, but did manage to add assist to his name as he teed up Ryan for his second of the night.
