THERE WAS DISAPPOINTMENT for DJ Carey’s Kilkenny footballers on Tuesday, as they suffered a 38-point defeat to Wicklow in the Electric Ireland Leinster MFC.
The Cats got off to an encouraging start in this competition, playing out a 3-16 to 3-8 defeat to Louth in their opening game last month.
But their second-round outing in Nowlan Park proved to be a much more difficult assignment as Wicklow came away with a 9-20 to 2-3 victory.
Carey’s charges were trailing by 19 points at half-time with Eoin Doyle hitting a brace of goals for Wicklow while Matthew Ging and Shane Daly also hit the back of the net for the visitors before the break.
Doyle finished the game with an impressive tally of 3-3.

Kilkenny fought to stay in contention and Vincent O’Grady grabbed a goal back for them in the first half from the penalty spot. But they were left with a mountain to climb heading into the second period.
Evan O’Shea scored the other goal for Kilkenny, while Eoin Conway and Ryan Murphy also added to their scoresheet with points.
