National Cup Results and Reports:
It was a mixed day in the third round of the National Cup for the Kerry sides.
Danone 12’s:
In the Danone 12’s The Park qualified for Round 4, and only one win away from the Last 32, with a 3-0 away win at Corbally. Andy Garcia, Jack Rusk and Padraig McCannon scored to set up a clash with Aisling Annacotty away in Limerick. Kingdom Boys National Cup campaign is over as they lost at home to Avenue Utd.
Kerry will have a second side in Round 4 as Killarney Celtic had already qualified before this weekend and are awaiting the winners of the Gravnville and BT Harps, with Celtic having home advantage.
14’s:
Ballyhar’s third win in the National Cup see’s them into the Last 64 of the competition and one win away from the Open Round draw, featuring the last 32 teams. This is a great run for Ballyhar and on this occasion had hat tricks from David Kenny and Niall O’Donoghue, two goals from Padraig O’Connor and one from David O’Mahony. Ballyhar will next welcome Garnagh United, conquerors of Killarney Athletic, to Murt Scott Park for what will be a huge game.
In that Granagh game Killarney Athletic lost out 4-1 with Liam Curran getting the Killarney’s boy goal.
Killarney Celtic will also be at home in Round 4 after they proved to be too strong for BT Harps in Templemore. Luke O’Donoghue top scored with a hat trick, Mark Harnett and Kasper Malinowski both got two each while Cian Gammell, Thando Dube and Gary Mathews added one each. The Hoops will be at home to Avenue United from Clare in the next round.
Kingdom Boys made it three Kerry sides through as they had a good 5-2 home win over Nenagh. Dillon Robinson, Pat Looney, Rian O’Sullivan and Patrick Roche were the scorers for the home side. Kingdom Boys will travel to either Coonagh or Granagh in the next round.
16’s:
It was a case of three and out in the 16’s section with Killarney Athletic, Fenit and Killarney Celtic all bowing out. Athletic went closest to getting a result, going down 2-1 at home to Kilmallock. Mikey Casey got the Athletic goal.
Killarney Celtic will be rueing a missed penalty that would have given them a second half lead. However in fairness to Aisling Annacotty they were the better side throughout and once they did manage to take one of their chances ran out 3-0 winners.
Fenit had a goal from Jimmy Shanahan but that was as good as it got as they were well beaten by a good Regional United side.
League Reports:
