Underage season ends with wins for Inter Girls and Castleisland boys

Underage season ends with wins for Inter Girls and Castleisland boys:
U14 Girls Cup Final: Inter Kenmare 5-4 Listowel Celtic:
Described by those lucky enough to be in Kilbrean Park, Mastergeeha as the game of the season this 9 goal thriller saw Inter Kenmare just get the better of Listowel Celtic 5-4 after extra tiem.
Listowel Celtic opened the scoring after 12 minutes when Melaine Higgins chipped the ball over the Inter defender and ran on to make no mistake. However by half time Inter were ahead thanks to two goals from the excellent Chloe Cremin.
But for the first twenty minutes of the second half the North Kerry girls scored three times to lead 4-2. Higgins got her second goal and Kelly Enright scored twice to put them in a winning position with 15 minutes to go.
Credit to Inter they never gave up and dropped the heads and they hit back with two goals in two minutes in the 58th and 60 minutes thanks to Cremin and Amy Harrington to level matters at 4-4.
Both sides pushed hard for the winner but there was no further score and the game went into extra time. And here it was Chloe Cremin that became the Inter hero hitting the winner in the first period. They did need their keeper to make a great save to prevent the game going to penalties.
Senator Mark Daly who had relatives playing for Inter Kenmare presented the Player of the Match to Chloe Cremin while a delighted Inter Kenmare squad and coaches were presented with the 14 Girls Cup.
Tom Hayes 14’s Final:
Castleisland 3-1 Killarney Celtic B:
This was fitting if poignant win for the Castleisland 14’s side as this was the team that was looked after by the late Georgie Callaghan. The game was very tight in the first half with both defences on top and it remained score-less at the break.
Celtic took the lead 10 minutes into the second half when CallumO’Donoghue scored a cracked from distance but the lead only lasted 8 minutes when Padraig O’Shea equalised. Castleisland then took over and hit two similar goals to take the win. Two crosses were headed home by Freddie Galway and Con O’Neill. Celtic tried to get back into the game but Castleisland keeper Conor Wilkenson made a very good save and his side took a special win.
James Callaghan, a brother of Georgie presented Freddie Galway with the Player of the Match with Conor Wilkenson picking up the trophy on behalf of a delighted Castleisland squad and large crowd of supporters that were at the game played on the excellent Murt Scott Park Ballyhar pitch.
Camp Juniors end of season gala:
Camp Juniors celebrated their season with a Blitz which saw the clubs Academy out in force. Following the games which saw teams being named after World Cup qualifiers – Germany and France took the wins at u8’s and u10’s – the club held its Awards ceremonies with pride of place going to their u15’s and u16’s teams who won their Schoolboys competitions with the 15 Premier being the first won by a team from the club.

Reports:
Killarney Celtic and Iveragh United win 12’s Cups:
Killarney Celtic Green proved too strong for a gallant Camp Juniors side in the 12’s Girls Cup final. Camp Juniors held out for about 15 minutes but Celtic scored twice in quick succession and really there was no way back. Celtic added a 3rd before half time and then 3 more in the second half.
The Celtic goals came from Leah McMahon, Fianna Bradley, Ellie May Nugent, Lucy O’Sullivan, Elizabeth Coffey and Player of the Match trophy winner Katie Doe.
Killarney Celtic captain Leah McMahon dedicated her sides win to their team mate Amy O’Connor who passed away earlier this year.
The Boys final was a much tighter affair which ended with Iveragh United taking their first ever Cup win. The South Kerry side started the better and took the lead in the 9th minute through David Kennedy. They then added the vital goal in the 24th minute through Thomas O’Brien.
Credit to Killorglin they through everything at Iveragh in the second half and pulled one back when a Stevie Gannon shot was parried and Andrew Owens knock in the rebound.
Killorglin came within inches of grabbing an equaliser but Adam Kelly who was named Player of the Match made a great headed clearance from under the crossbar. Iveragh United survived to take a historic win for the club.
In Mid-Week Mastergeeh book place in 12’s Shield Final:
Goals from Danny Coffey, Ciaran Nagle and Liam Horgan plus an own goal were enough to give Mastergeeha a 5-3 win over Killorglin C in the John Murphy 12 Shield semi-final played in mid-week
This set up a decider with Dingle Bay Rovers which took place last Monday, the Bank Holiday.
Dynamos delight in 13’s Shield Final:
With Tralee Dynamos already through to the John Joe Naughton 13’s Shield final the question in mid-week was who would join them.
And it took penalties to separate Dingle Bay Rovers and Killarney Celtic C with the West Kerry side progressing 4-2 after the spot kicks. James Hoare got the all-important goal in normal time for Dingle Bay to cancel out a Cian Russell lead goal for Celtic.
And it the same player that gave Dingle Bay the ideal start to the final when he scored after 17 minutes to put his side ahead. However the Tralee side turned things around before the break by scoring twice to lead 2-1. Thomas Quilligan got the first and Liam Moroney the second for Dynamos.
Dingle Bay made a great effort to draw level but the Dynamos defence soaked up the pressure and then when they got their opportunities they took them with Evan Quilligan and Cody O’Brien added the goals to wrap up the win for Dynamos and the collected their Shield from Michael and Tommy Naughton on behalf of the family. Dingle Bay Rovers Paddy Ryan was named as Man of the Match
Castleisland and Killarney Celtic B to contest 14’s Shield Final:
Castleisland booked their place in the John Murphy 14’s Shield final thanks to a 3-1 away win at Killorglin B. There goals came from Ryan Dennehy, Patrick O’Shea and an Alex Kepp penalty. John Burke replied for Killorglin B.
Killarney Celtic B saw off Inter Kemare at Celtic Park thanks to goals from William Harty and Tim O’Brien who both scored two each and Cormac Rowe and Gary Wynne who got one each.
Park reach the pinnacle of the 14’s Cup:
Division 2 side Fenit enjoyed a great run to the John Murphy 14’s Cup but came up against one of the top sides in the Premier who had already won the Regional Cup and reached the semi-final of the National Cup. As expected once the Park scored a couple of early goals there was no way back for Fenit but to their credit they never gave up.
The Park’s goals came from Messiah Chirwa, who was named Player of the Match, Cillian Murphy, Cianan Cooney, Colin Doody and Ciaran O’Connor.
Inter Kenmare and Listowel Celtic to contest 14 Girls Final:
In the 14’s Girls semi-finals Inter Kenmare had goals from Chloe Cremin 2 and Katie Cronin as they defeated Killarney Athletic in their home semi-final.

Saved penalties the key to Athletics 15 Shield win:
Killarney Athletic and Killorglin B went all the way to penalties before the Killarney side were crowned the Healy Family 15 Shield winners. Eoin Mulvanney put Athletic ahead in the first half but Killorglin B levelled it up late on. There were no further goals and so the game went to penalties. But in the shoot-out it was Athletic who took the initiative as their keeper Darragh Doolan saved three Killorglin kicks. This was a great win for a side that struggled to win games in their early years but are now the Shield champions.
Killarney Celtic 16’scompletes a historic treble:
With the League and the Regional titles already in the trophy cabinet Killarney Celtic needed to see off Ballyhar in the Tucker Kelly 16’s Final. The game took place at Mastergeeha’s Kilbrean Park and it was the Hoops that win 3-0. Terry Sparling opened the scoring after 25 minutes and the lead was doubled 18 minutes into the second half when Emmet Finnan hit the net. Terry Sparling volleyed home the insurance goal late on and Celtic had the treble secured. Sparling was named Man of the Match. The Celtic team dedicated their win to team mate Niall McGillicuddy who is battling illness at the moment.
Mastergeeha leave it late to win 16’s Shield:
The Tucker Kelly 16’s Shield final was full of end to end excitement with Mastergeeha leaving it late before getting the winner. The Kilbrean side went ahead on the 14th minute through Ian O’Conner but Jack Shanahan equalised in the 33rd minute.
However their lead only lasted a few minutes before a Darragh Riordan goal put Mastergeeha ahead again, a lead they held till half time.
For a while it looked like there would not be any further goals but Jack Shanahan had other ideas and he hit the equaliser with ten minutes to go.
But just when thoughts were turning to extra time Philip O’Leary stepped up with the critical goal to send the Shield to Kilbrean Park’s trophy cabinet.
League Round-Up:
Iveragh United on top of the 13 Premier:
Iveragh United got the win they needed to wrap up their first ever Premier title as they defeated The Park 3-1. Oisin Breen got 2 and Ian O’Sullivan the third in the win that sees them beat Killarney Celtic to the title. It certainly has been a good end to the season for Iveragh United with two trophy wins wrapped up.
Mastergeeha defeated Killarney Athletic in a relegation 6 pointer thanks to goals from Hugh Lenihan, Alan O’Leary 2, Eoin Moynihan and Padraig Moynihan.
14 Premier title shared:
Killorglin and The Park could not be separated all season and took each other on in the last game of the Quills Woollen Mills 14 Premier league. And after this game they were still level following a 1-1 draw. Messiah Chirwa scored for the Park with Eoghan Hassett replying for Killorglin. This was probably a fair result as these were the two best teams in the Division with the Park having a particularly memorable season.
Camp the Champs at 15’s
Camp Juniors knew that all they needed was a point from their last game of the season to become Killarney Plaza 15 Premier champions. In their last game they did better taking all three points following a 3-1 win away at Park.
Mike Tansley got the Park goals but first half goals from Conor O’Leary and Colman O’Meara and a second half goal from Thomas O’Donnell saw Camp wrap up the Premier title.

SSE Airtricity League u15’s
Cobh Ramblers 1-0 Kerry
When this game eventually got going in Pat O’Brien Park, a change of venue from where it had been re-fixed for, it was the home side that started the better with Jake Lynch flashing a header wide. Kerry then needed a last ditch tackle from Sean Kererski on Tieran O’Brien to keep the game scoreless while Sean Dillane and Ryan Guerin also did very well when Cobh looked like opening the scoring.
Kerry were living on little possession but a Sean Ryan run almost paid dividends and a Sean Horan effort went close but the game remained scoreless at the break.
Kerry began the second half on the front foot with the introduction of Cian Brosnan causing Cobh problems. Rob Vassiu and Cian Clancy were also putting balls into the Cobh danger area but the home side stood firn.
Indeed the only goal of the game came from a well- defended Kerry free. In the 63rd minute Cobh broke and won a free kick of their own on the right wing. This was whipped in by Adam McCarthy and when it broke at the back post Brandon Idah was on hand to smash it home at the near post.
Credit to Kerry as from there on they were on top and deserved an equaliser. Cian Brosnan was almost in but the home keeper Gavin Ryan was quickly off his line. The Sean Ryan rounded the keeper and looked like he had scored but the Cobh defender got back to make a great clearance off the line. From the corner Caolan O’Connell flashed his hearer just over.
Kerry continued to push but the Cobh defence held out for an important win. Kerry will take a lot of positives from their last two games as they head into the summer break.

The Dingle Bay goals came from James Hoare 2, Cian McGearailt and Sean Roche.
Killorglin C also went into the hat after a 2-1 win over Ballyhar B. Darragh Lynch and Aaron got the Killorglin goals with Sean Daly scoring for Ballyhar B.

Kerry trio feature in Irish u16’s games in Sweden:
There was a time when to have any player on an Irish underage team was a rarity. Those days are long gone and things reached another level this week.
Kerry had three players on the Irish u16 team –Leo Gaxha, Sean McGrath and Sean Kennedy – at the UEFA Development Tournament in Sweden.
All three featured in their opening 2-0 defeat hosts Sweden and again in the defeat to Austria with Sean Kennedy starting the game. Kennedy saved his best for the last game against Turkey. He came off the bench in a game that McGrath and Gaxha started in. Kennedy fired in the equaliser with 5 minutes to go and then hit another in the penalty shoot-out that Ireland won. It was a proud week for the League to see three players that came through its ranks lining out together in the Green of Ireland.
