Kildare County Wins A Game!

Yes, believe it or not, after opening the season with a draw, then losing 15 straight league games and 2 cup matches, Kildare County has finally won a game this season! On Friday night they traveled to Terryland Park to face 10th placed Meruve United, and quickly went down 1-0 midway through the first half. Everything seemed to click after halftime though as the Thoroughbreds reeled of 4 unanswered goals to not only win, but win in convincing fashion 4-1!

The 3 points still leaves them in the cellar of the First Division, with a 5 point gap to 11th placed Longford Town, who has a game in hand and easily has the goal differential tiebreaker in their favor. This match was the midpoint of the 33 game season though, so County still has time to make a push and try to survive.
