11 Through to next Rounds of National Cup;
It was a very good day for Kerry sides in National Cup action with 11 of the 15 teams in action going through.
In the Danone 12’s Cup Round 2 one Kerry side had to go out as The Park met Listowel Celtic in Tralee. And it was the home side who progressed thanks to three goals from Leon Shambala and one each from Padraig McCannon, James Sheehan and Alfie Christie.
Kingdom Boys proved too strong for Cloughjordan and also progress to Round 3. On the mark were John Carmody who netted a hat trick. Abbey Yusef, Leo Gaxha and Cody Murphy got the others.
A round ahead are Killarney Celtic who are now only one win away from the open Last 32 draw. Celtic defeated Herbertstown 5-1. Darragh Lyne got the first at Celtic Park but the visitors replied to equalise. Gary O’Connor put Celtic ahead and Ryan Kelliher scored twice to make it 4-1. Peter O’Sullivan scored the goal of the game running from the half way line after Kelliher’s inch perfect pass put him and neatly slotted home low to the keepers left.
It was a perfect day in the 14’s National Cup as all four Kerry sides progressed. Ballyhar were 5-2 winners over Granville Rangers at Murt Scott Park. Jason Flynn got 2, Liam and Danny Brosnan one each as did Cian O’Callaghan.
Killarney Athletic also won at home on the same score-line defeating Broadford. Michael Potts 2, Ciaran Kennedy, Lorcan McMonagle and Reece Hegarty were the Athletic scorers.
Kingdom Boys were also at home in the all Kerry clash and got past Fenit thanks to goals from Simon Driaghi, Kevin Williams, Dillon Robinson 2, Diarmuid O’Connor, Reen O’Sullivan and Dara Divine.
Killarney Celtic were on the road but came back easy winners from Limerick defeating Fairview Rangers. Celtic were without regular manager Paudie Griffin who was absent due to family commitments and all at Celtic are looking forward to his return very shortly. On the mark for Celtic were David Clifford 2, Gary Mathews, Mark Harnett, Thando Dube, Chris O’Donoghue, Kasper Malinowsky, Oran O’Donoghue and Gary Davies.
Unfortunately some of the big guns went out of the 16’s National Cup with Listowel Celtic, The Park and Kingdom Boys losing out. However there was much better news for Killarney Celtic, Fenit, Killarney Athletic and Mastergeeha who all progressed.
Killarney Celtic were 4-1 winners at home to Adare with the goals coming from Cathal O’Shea 2, Mikey Moynihan and Eoin Kennedy. Fenit and Herbertown went all the way to spot kicks with the Kerry side winning through. Cian McGarry got 2 and Louis Ryle the third in a 3-3 draw after extra time. Onto penalties and Fenit keeper Eoin O’Brien proved to be the hero, saving and scoring to see his side through.
Killarney Athletic had a less nerve racking passage through with a 2-0 win over Knockainey thanks to goals from David Naughton and Michael Casey. Mastergeeha left it late to defeat Nenagh away but goals from Owen Sweeney, Denis Brosnan and Paudie O’Connor gave them a great 3-2 win on the road.
Moriarty’s Centra Farranfore 12’s:
In the 12’s Moriarty’s Centra 12’s Premier top side Killorglin made it three wins from three as they proved too strong for Killarney Athletic. The Purcell’s were in great from netting 5 between them with Dara helping himself to a hat trick. Jack O’Connor chipped it with two more while Dylan O’Neill and Gearoid Hassett got the others.
In Division 1 leaders Killarney Celtic were held to a 1 all draw away to The Park and had Mark Cooper to thank for the point as he scored the equaliser very late on. Mark Dziedziuch had given The Park the lead.
Second placed Kingdom Boys didn’t manage to take anything from their game in Kilbrean Park with Mastergeeha defeating them thanks to a Dylan Murphy hat trick, 2 from Paul O’Shea and one each from Niall O’Connor and Adam Kelly.
The North Kerry derby between Asdee and St Bernards was the highlight of Division 2 with the sides sharing 9 goals between them. Unbeaten St Bernards just held onto the record thanks to a 5-4 win. Keith O’Connor led their scoring with three while Declan O’Donoghue and Oisin Maunsell were the other scorers. Pat Carmody, Ben O’Connor, Mark Hennessy and Bernard O’Callaghan, from the penalty spot were Asdee’s scorers.

Fenit will be happy to see their hard work paying off as they picked up their first point of the season thanks to a 3 all draw with Killorglin. Paddy Walsh 2 and Cian Donnellan got the scores for Fenit.
O’Callaghan Coaches 14 Premier:
Listowel Celtic join Kingdom Boys and Mastergeeha at the top of the table thanks to their home win against Killorglin. Dara Goulding got 3 while Adam Cronin, Neilus Mackessey, David Loughnane and James Cantillon got the rest.

Killarney Plaza 15’s Division 2:
One uneven game went ahead and it was too sides on 6 points and joint leaders clash in Woodlawn. Killarney Athletic have a game extra played and will be disappointed not to take something The Park B who move to the summit alone. Donnagh O’Brien, Evan Doody and Joe Griffin scored for Listowel Celtic while goals from Tommy Counihan and David Shaw just failed to rescue a point for the home side.
Tralee Trophy World 16 South:
With a lot of teams in National Cup action The Park B took advantage to move to the top of the 16 South Division. They won 5-2 in Killorglin for whom Dan Whittleton scored. Dylan McCarthy, Kyle Bustard, Murrough Connolly and Fergal Ryan were the Park’s scorers.
