Mervue United saw of a very good Salthill Devon on penalties to et up the 2018 decider. The game was a very tight affair with Aoibhin Kelly having to make a number of good saves. Driven on by Leah McMahon, who was named Player of the Match, Celtic pushed for the winner. As the thoughts were turning to extra time Mervue launched one last attack and despite a valiant effort by the Celtic keeper and her defenders the Galway girl manager to prod the ball home.

Kerry completed their 15’s League of Ireland season in impressive fashion as they defeated Carlow/Kilkenny 3-2 at Mounthawk Park. The visitors were looking for their 5th win from 6 games that had already seen them top the Group.
Kerry have been competitive all season and a bit of luck could have seen then possible top Carlow/Kilkenny. And in this their last game Kerry again showed this winning 3-2.
The visitors took the lead after 10 minutes but Kerry levelled when Sean Horan got on the end of a great Caolan O’Connell pass. Into the second half and again Carlow/Kilkenny took the lead but Kerry responded right away and were level thanks to Rob Vassiu.

Kerry 15’s bring home point from long trip to Waterford:
Kerry played their second last game of the 15’s League of Ireland season and brought a point back from their trip to Waterford in game 5 of the Shield. They went behind on the stroke of half time when the Kerry defence was looking for an offside flag that didn’t come.
However they got back on level terms 12 minutes into the second half when Caolan O’Connell scored with a cracker from 25 yards.
Kerry will face Carlow/Kilkenny in their last game this Saturday at Mounthawk Park at 3pm.
Kerry go down in Subway 15’s Inter League opener:
Kerry are one of only 4 Leagues in the country that have both a League of Ireland and Subway Inter League side. The Inter League side travelled to Nenagh to take on North Tipperary and led after 22 minutes. Jack Sheehy scored following a Sam Benson cross.
However the home side upped the intensity in the second half once they equalised in the first minute of the second half. They took the lead in the 58th minute and as Kerry pushed for an equaliser they wrapped up the win in the 63rd minute. Conor Kerins in midfield was Kerry’s best player on the day. Kerry will be at home in the next two games in the group.
VITHIT Kerry SchoolGirls League gets underway:
Schoolgirls soccer is the fastest growing sport in the country and this is certainly the case in Kerry. This season we will have 22 girls teams playing in the League and it kicked off at the weekend.
The League is delighted to welcome St Brendan’s Park 16’s into the Girls League and is delighted to see girls soccer in Tralee. While they went down to a more experienced Inter Kenmare 16’s side they certainly showed plenty of promise. Emily Crowe got their historic first goal. However Inter with the always excellent Chloe Cremin hitting 4 goals and Orla o’Brien and Kate Cronin getting one each they took the points. Laurie Adams and Sarah Taylor also had good games for Inter while Lauren Dowling, Caoimhe Moore, Jasmine Ryle, Ellie Sugrue, Dakota Carter and Alex McNamara all had good games for the Park.
Killarney Athletic also got their 16’s Girls campaign off to a winning start as they defeated Fenit 3-0. Dervla Jeffers and Katie Dwyer had good games for Fenit. Athletic took the win with goals from Pia Hickey and Eimear Cronin with Lily Foley having a very good game.
In the 12’s Girls Premier Killarney Celtic White had goals from Naoise O’Donoghue and Eve Culhane, Casey Mullroy and Lara O’Neill in their win over Camp with Amber McIndoe outstanding on the left wing. The game was tighter than the score line suggests with Celtic having to put together some very good passing movements to get the breakthrough. Suvi O’Connor got the goal for Camp who had good performances from Saoirse McCarthy, Roisin Evans and Aisleigh Horan.
It is great to see that MEK have 2 girls teams at 12’s and their Kickerz side got off to a winning start defeating Fenit 6-3. Sinead O’Sullivan had a great day hitting 4 goals for the Mid and East Kerry side with Izzy McGrath and Grainne Kelliher also on the score sheet.
For Fenit Meah Carmody hit 2 and Grace Reilly got the other while with Sarah O’Sullivan having a good game in goal.
One win and two draws in the 12 Premier:
The Park will be happy that they were the only winners in the JK Sports 12 Premier action. They had goals from Ronan O’Carroll 2 and Jamie McCartney I their 3-2 win over Killorglin. Aaron Doyle got both their goals.
Killorglin had picked up a point in mid-week in a 2-2draw with Dingle Bay Rovers. Aaron Doyle and Charles O’Sullivan got the Killorglin goals with Padraig Manning and Cian McGearailt on the mark for Dingle Bay.
It might have ended 0-0 between Killarney Athletic and Tralee Dynamos but it was a very good game with the Killarney side probably having the better of the first half and Dynamos just shading the second. Shane Stack and Eoin Flaherty in the goals stood out for the Tralee side.
Away sides do best in 12 Division 1:
In the JK Sports 12 Division 1 Killarney Athletic B made the short trip across town a winning one as they defeated Celtic B 5-2. Dara Griffin hit 3, Luke Courtney and Luke Doolan getting the goals and Brian McCarthy also impressing. It was a good second half for Athletic as they trailed 2-1 at half time.
Tralee Dynamos also won on the road defeating Inter Kenmare 2-0 away. Mollie Duggan is proving to be a goal machine as she scored again with Shane Crossan adding the second after half time. Defensively Conor Crean and Leon O’Sullivan were excellent for Dynamos.
Camp Juniors took the points from their trip to Kilbrean Park where the beat Mastergeeha 6-2. Dean Goodwyn led the scoring for Camp Juniors getting 4 with David Moore and Dylan Harrington also on the score sheet.
Fenit were the 4th away team to win as they were 4-1 winners at Christy Leahy Park. Aaron Harty was certainly the difference as he hit all four goals for the winners who also had Tom Quilter impressing.
North and South action in 12’s Division 2:
In the 12’s Division 2 North the mid-week game between Ballyheigue and Dingle Bay Rovers ended 1-1. Adam Thornton scored early for Ballyheigue with Sean O’Baoil getting the Dingle goal inside the last ten minutes. Ballyheigue needed some good saves late on from keeper Nicky Corridan to secure the points. Aaron Foley was outstanding for Dingle Bay.
Dingle Bay were also in action at the weekend but went down 2-0 to Camp Juniors B as were Ballyheigue who lost out to Park C. The Tralee sides goals came from Tadgh Foley Gaberil 2 and one each from Michael Quirke, Ethan Bollard, Cody McMahon and Edison Jahiri.
In the Southern section Inter Kenmare were 3-2 winners at home to Killarney Athletic. The home side were 3-0 up at half time thanks to goals from Darragh O’Sullivan, Darragh Sweeney and Frankie O’Shea with Jack Wiggans and Ruairi Coakley also impressing.

Reports
Killarney Celtic head for FAI Women’s 12’s Girls Finals:
The FAI Women’s 12’s Girls qualifiers took place in Drinagh in West Cork for the first time with 9 teams from the three Leagues in the South West Region – Kerry, Cork and West Cork. Camp Juniors, Killarney Celtic, Fenit and Inter Kenmare were the representatives of the League at the Blitz.
And the plaudits certainly go to Killarney Celtic who won their 4 games including the decider against Ringmahon from Cork. The game was tied 0-0 at half time and then Katie Doe put Killarney Celtic ahead. A great penalty save by Aoibhin Kelly and a second from Fiana Bradley saw Celtic progress unbeaten. This was a great team effort by the girls who didn’t conceded a goal and are now in 15 other teams at the National Finals.
Inter Kenmare were very unlucky to go down to a late goal from Group winner Midleton in their deciding game following wins over Drinagh and Fenit.
Both Camp Juniors and Fenit who are new to competing level gave very good accounts of themselves on the day.
No Joy for Kerry sides in Skecher 12 National Cup:
The draw was not kind to the Kerry sides as they were all drawn away. Killorglin travelled to Carew Park in Limerick. In a tight game it always looked like one goal would be enough. And it was the Limerick side that got it in the second half. For the Kerry side Adam O’Neill, Alex Garry and Sean O’Sullivan were the best on show.
Tralee Dynamos and Inter Kenmare also had games away in Limerick with both going down 3-0 to Shannon Hibs and Shelbourne respectively.
Listowel Celtic had a shorter trip but they are also out going down 5-2 at Abbeyfeale.
Killarney Celtic were the only side drawn at home and they are due to face neighbours Killarney Athletic on Thursday night.
Three through in the 14’s:
Iveragh United’s 7-1 away win at Holycross was one of the stand-out performances of the day. Zac Fayen hit 3 with Ben O’Donoghue, Ian O’Sullivan and Ruairi O’Donnell all getting on the mark with the 7th being on og.
Listowel Celtic were also impressive as they went to Birdhill and won 5-0. Cormac Dillon 2, Evan Boyle 2 and Sean Mahoney got the goals with Rory Whelan putting in a great display for the North Kerry side.
Mastergeeha were also 5-0 winners as the saw off Killivilla United at Kilbrean Park with the goals coming from Jack Fogarty who hit a hat-trick, Sean Doolan and James Williams. Eoghan Kelly put in a Player of the Match display for Mastergeeha.
The Park are also through as they got past Caherdavin 3-0 but Tralee Dynamos went out to Pike Rovers in Limerick and Killarney Athletic lost to Kildimo in Woodlawn.
The Inter Kenmare versus Fairview Rangers game was called off earlier in the week due to bereavement in the Limerick club.
Kerry well represented in 16’s Round 2:

Brendan O’Leary, Kevin Bowler, Cian Foley, Cian Murphy and Andrew Lowin got the goals for the Kilbrean side.
Camp Juniors were very unlucky as they came back from 2-0 down to draw level thanks to 2 goals from John O’Connor. But they were hit by a sucker punch by the home side Cullen / Lattin. Jason Lee scored for Kilarney Athletic but it wasn’t enough as they went down 4-1 away to Lough Derg.
Tralee Dynamos were in a cracker with Caherdavin as the game ended 4-4 after extra time. Philip Evans 2, Daniel Burke and Cody Clifford got the goals but the Tralee side went down on penalties.
In the all Kerry clash on Sunday Killorglin needed extra time to see of Ballyhar who had been 1-0 up through Peter Cosgrave. Killorglin’s Dylan Moriarty who was excellent on the day scored twice to put his side 2-1 up but an Aaron O’Shea goal at the death saw Ballyhar equalise.
However it was the home side that got the only goal in extra time to take the win with Cathal Crowley’s 30 yard effort hitting the net via the underside of the crossbar. Killorglin’s Oran Smith was also impressive stepping up from the B team.
