Extra time in all Saturday’s National Cup games:
There were a number of National Cup games played at the weekend. In the 12’s Round 4 Killarney Athletic are on a great run and now join Listowel Celtic in the Last 32. They defeated Moneypoint 2-1 after extra time. Coilte Cronin got the goal in normal time and Alex Hennigan netted the win in the extra period.
In the 14’s Killarney Celtic won the all Kerry clash knocking out Killorglin after extra time. It was 1 all after full time with Cian Dineen putting Celtic ahead. Killorglin equalised late on when Gearoid Hassett lashed home a 25 yard cracker but in extra time goals from Niall McGillicuddy and Evan Looney put Killarney Celtic one win away from the Last 32 Open Draw. To get there they will need to defeat Moneypoint at home in Round 4.
Tralee Dynamos were unlucky to go out away to Ennis Town. Sean Kennedy’s hat trick for Dynamos saw the sides tied 3 all at the end of normal time. But it was Ennis Town that got the only goal in extra time to progress.
Under Age Action:
Watching our youngest stars in action is always a joy as they play just for the love of the game. This weekend was particularly busy with the players of Killarney Celtic and The Park meeting each other in an 9’s and 10’s blitz.
The Moriarty’s Centra 11’s also saw plenty of action. Listowel Celtic and the Park met with multiple teams. In Kilbrean Park teams from Mastergeeha, Killarney Athletic, Tralee Dynamos and Inter Kenmare were in action. Camp Juniors hosted Iveragh United, Dingle Bay, Asdee, Ballyhar and Fenit for another great few hours of underage action.
