Under 11 Moriarty’s Centra Farranfore Premier:
This was the first weekend of the uneven ages which meant that many of these ‘stars of the future’ were making their League debuts.
One of the emerging stats of this season is the number of draws and Kingdom Boys and Listowel Celtic provided another one in their game.
Celtic kicked off and put together an amazing 12 passes, without Kingdom Boys touching the ball, in the lead up to Jordan O’Rourke smashing the ball home to make it 1-0.
However Kingdom Boys teams are rarely overawed by anything that happens and they went straight down from the re-start to equalise through Dillon Robinson.
Eoin O’Connor put Listowel Celtic back in front before the break but Patrick Roche ensured a share of the points with seven minutes to go.
Killarney Celtic picked up all three points in their 2-0 win over Mastergeeha with goals from Cian Gammell and Conor Stack. To be fair to Mastergeeha Celtic’s second goal came in the last minute.
The Park travelled to Killarney and were too strong for Athletic, winning 5-0. Ciaran Kelliher 2, Sean Griffin 2 and Michael Lenihan were the scorers.
In Division 1 Iveragh were well beaten by Ballyhar is Murt Scott Park. Jack Landers got the Iveragh consolation but 3 goals from David Kenny, 2 from Liam Browne and one each from Thomas Murphy, Diarmuid O’Mahoney and Shane Kennedy were plenty to give the home side all three points.
Inter Kenmare and Killorglin were an other of the sides who shared the points today. Gearoid Fennessy, Sean Casey and Eoin Murphy scored for Inter but there were cancelled out by strikes from Kellon Cahill, Gary Mathews and Jonathan Kissane.
Moving to Division 2 and there were good wins from Asdee over debutants Behy Rovers and Fenit who defeated Castleisland, amazingly both on 7-1 score lines.
Patrick Kelliher got a hat trick, Callum McSweeney 2, Fionn Twomey and Tommy O’Neill were on the mark for Asdee. Behy Rovers were playing their first Schoolboys game and will take time to settle into the League. However they did score on their debut and Nathan McGillicuddy wrote his name in their history books as their first scorers.
Sean Donnellan hit 3, Chris Murphy scored from the penalty spot, while Degain Crowe, Cathain McElligot and Cormac O’Brien got one each to give Fenit full points over Castleisland.
Div 3 results saw Killarney Celtic C winning 2-0 over Inter Kenmare B with Shane Sullivan and John Quilligan the scorers.
Park B were 6-1 winners at home to Killorglin. Ed Moynihan, Edwin O’Connor, Tom Curley and two from Ruairi O’Kelly plus an OG were the scores in this game.
The Daly Supervalu Under 13 Premier games were played mid week and in the first of these Listowel Celtic defeated Dingle Bay 2-0 with Kieran Lynch getting both, one from the penalty spot.
Killarney Celtic and Killarney Athletic finished scoreless but there was no such lack of scoring in the other game. Park just got the better of Kingdom Boys by the odd goal in seven in the Tralee derby.
Kingdom Boys got off to a wonderful start going two goals in front inside three minutes. Eoin Edwards and Calvin Foley were the scorers. Jack Duggan pulled one back for Park before Sean Fitzmaurice levelled the game. Shane Lowth put Kingdom Boys back in front before half time.
Paudie Griffin made it 3-3 mid way through the second period and it looked like the spoils would be shared but in the last minute a Jessie Stafford Lacey cross deflected off an unfortunate K Boys defender to give The Park the spoils and the early bragging rights.
Division 1 saw wins for Ballyhar over Castleisland, Camp over Fenit and Mastergeeha who beat Inter Kenmare.
Two goals from Conall Murphy and two from William Courtney saw Ballyhar take the points in a come back win over Castleisland who had gone 2-0 in front through Alan Brown and Shane McLoughlin. Ethan O’Connor added another but it wasn’t enough.
Jerry Foley, Jack Nix, Maurice Slattery and Brandon Doyle all hit each as Camp hit 4 to Fenit’s 2 for whom Ryan Dolan got both.
Oscar O’Connor and Chris Keane were Mastergeeha’s scorers in their 2-1 win over Inter Kenmare.
Goals a plenty were the order of the day when Kingdom Boys B and Killorglin B clashed with the sides sharing eight goals.
