Park miss out on chance to go top of the Premier:
With leaders Killorglin not playing The Park knew that a win over neighbours Tralee Dynamos would see them move to the top of the table. However Dynamos youngsters have been showing signs of improvement over the last few weeks without getting their rewards.
But here Dynamos will be happy that their hard work has begun to pay off and here they picked up their first point in a 0-0 draw. They did have to ride their luck a little and had their keeper in great form.

Inter Kenmare travelled to Ballyhar two points behind the Division leaders but left Murt Scott Park a point ahead after a 51 win.
