Kerry 14’s go down to Treaty United in final game:
Treaty United 4-2 Kerry
Kerry made the trip to UL to take on Treaty United in their final game of their EA Sports 14’s League of Ireland campaign hoping to follow up on their win over Carlow/Kilkenny last weekend. And had a couple of calls gone their way they could have ended with at least a draw.
Kerry started the better with Leigh Meehan, Dawid Grebowiec and Aaron Harty all causing the Treaty defence problems. At the back keeper Brian Dineen and defenders Oran Horgan and Alex Kelly were capably handling the home side threw at them.
Treaty did take the lead against the run of play mid-way through the first half but Kerry hit back straight away. From an in-swinging Alex Kelly corner Aaron Harty got the run on the defence to slot the ball home for his first League of Ireland goal.
Treaty United got a big break at the start of the second half when they went ahead from the penalty spot. But again Kerry hit back. Kelly again put in an inch perfect corner which Adam Evan cleverly flicked on to Darragh Lynch to score.
But Kerry were not able to stay level for long and conceded from a free kick when the tall centre back from Treaty headed home. Kerry went in search of another equaliser and Darragh Lynch brought a number of good saves from the Treaty keeper as did Neal O’Shea. With Kerry pushing hard for their third goal Treaty United found room on the break to make it 4-2 and take the points.
Once again the Kerry 14’s squad gave their all for the jersey and for their coaches Eon O’Mahony, Billy Stack and Brian O’Regan.
After the game Eoin paid tribute to the commitment of the squad all during the season, to the coaches for all their work and to the parents who travelled all over the country to support the players. “This group of young players have learned and grown from game to game and from training session to training session and continually improved all season. It was great to see their efforts rewarded with recent performance and results. And also they have made friends for life which is as important as what happens on the pitch.”
Kerry sides progress in the Uneven Ages National Cup:
There was action in the 1st and 2nd Rounds of the Unevan Age SFAI National Cups and a number of Kerry sides have progressed to their next round.
