Ciaran Kilduff scored twice in Jacksonville Armada's NASL game against New York Cosmos on Sunday night – only for his teammates to blow a three-goal lead in the final 12 minutes.

 

The former Dundalk striker showed his predatory instincts to stab home a knock-down from teammate Kalen Ryden after outmsucling defender Dejan Jakovic.

 

 

And he added to the Cosmos' misery five minutes from the break as he dispossessed midfielder Daniel Szetela before striding through and slotting past keeper Kyle Zobeck.

 

 

They were the Kildare man's second and third goals since swapping the League of Ireland for Florida, having also spent time with Shamrock Rovers, UCD and St Patrick's Athletic.

 

It wasn't to be for the Armada, however, despite Jack Blake adding a penalty 25 minutes from time as they conceded three late goals and missed out on a chance to move fourth in the Fall Season table.
