Lots of positives from Gaynor Openers as 15’s win 2-1:
Kerry 13’s and 15’s Gaynor teams began their journey that will end up at the Gaynor Tournament on the last week of July in either the Cup or trophy with home games against the Desmond League.
Played in Georgie O’Callaghan Park the 13’s took on a visiting side that were a little more experienced than the Kerry girls. And Limerick Desmond took advantage to score early and then doubled their lead before Kerry almost pulled one back only to see the ball cleared off the line. The Limerick Desmond girls pushed on a despite some good saves by the Kerry keeper they were 5-0 ahead at half time.
However the Kerry girls regrouped and held their opponents scoreless for the second half and were unlucky not to get a couple back.
The Kerry 15’s took on a Limerick Desmond side that included many girls that had played at the Gaynor at the younger age group. But the home side were very disciplined and the game was scoreless at the break. Limerick Desmond finally made the breakthrough 15 minutes into the second half. But Fiana Bradley levelled matters soon after with a cracker from 25 yards out. And then the same player put Kerry ahead. Kerry saw out the game for a great win for the squad and management.
Both the Kerry 13’s and 15’s will have 4 more qualifying games over the next few months before its decided which section they will play in in UL.
Subway Inter League Action;

Kerry’s great run in the Subway SFAI Munster u13 competition ended with a semi-final defeat away to a very strong Cork side the majority of which are expected to sign for Cork City in the League of Ireland in the next month.
Cork led by 3 at the half and despite their best efforts Kerry were unable to make in-roads into the lead. Darragh Lynch tested the Cork keeper with a long range effort while Aaron Doyle was a threat to the Cork rear-guard all game.
In defence Kerry’s keeper Brian Dineen saved a penalty with Oran Horgan, Ned Ryan and Shayne Stack also putting great efforts.
Great Point for the 14’s: With Cork on two wins from two and Kerry having won their opening game in the 14’s SFAI Subway Inter League this was always going to be a vital game.
The home side started the better on the Douglas Hall pitch but found Kerry’s keeper Oisin O’Halloran in excellent form making 4 big saves to keep the game scoreless.
Kerry came more into the game in the second half and came close to taking the lead but Oisin Healy’s header hit the post and Finn Barrett also went close. Kerry were unlucky not to take the win in the end but will be happy with an away point. Next up is an away trip to February on the weekend of February 2nd.
