12’s Danone Cup:
The Even ages kicked off their National Cup campaign last weekend. Listowel Celtic progressed from Round 1 without kicking a ball as they received a walk over and will now take on St Brendan’s Park in the next round. Killarney Celtic proved to be too strong for Askeaton and with Darragh Lyne top scoring on 4 progressed to Round 3. Still to play in Round 2 are Kingdom Boys who face Cloughjordan.
However for Mastergeeha and Killarney Athletic the competition is over as they went out to Pike Rovers and Abbeyfeale respectively.
14’s Round 1:
Kingdom Boys were too good for Shannon Hibs to set up an all Kerry second round clash against Fenit. On this occasion Rian O’Sullivan hit a hat trick, Dillon Robinson got 2 with Eoin McElligott, Diarmuid O’Connor and Dara Lowth getting one each.
Killarney Athletic won the all local clash as they got the better of The Park 6-2 but only after extra time. The game was tied at 2-2 at the end of normal time with David Fitzmaurice and Dylan O’Sullivan pulling the Park back from 2-0 down. But in extra time Athletics Michael Potts continued on from the two he got in normal time to hit 3 more, and amazingly 4 of his 5 were from outside the box. Liam Curran added the sixth.
Ballyhar will also be happy with their extra time won over Moneypoint at Murt Scott Park. This game was all 2 all at the end of normal time with Cian O’Callaghan and David Kenny on the mark for the home side. Niall O’Donoghue got the only goal of the added period.
Killarney Celtic had no need for extra time as they got past Askeaton thanks to goal from Luke O’Donoughue (4) and one each from Mark Harnett, David Clifford and Gary Mathews.
There was no luck for Listowel Celtic who went down agonisingly 2-1 to Ballymackey despite a Jack McKenna goal.
Mastergeeha also scored once in their Round 2 clash through Neill McCarthy but it wasn’t enough as they went out away to Avenue United in Clare.
16’s Round 1:
It was a very good day for the Kerry sides in the 16’s National Cup with Ballyhar the only side going out. They went down 5-2 to Granagh United. William Hickey and David O’Connor were on the mark for Ballyhar.
The Park hit 8 at home to Pallis through James Duggan, Shane McLoughlin and Ryan Dolan who all scored 2 and Calvin Foley and Paudie Griffin who got one each.
Kingdom Boys also scored 8 but they were away to Shannon Hibs who only managed 2. Ciaran O’Keeffe, Jonathan Myers, Shane Lowth, Sam Tarrant and Eoin Hennessy were all on the mark for the Tralee side.
Killarney Athletic scored three without reply as they progressed at home to Ballymackey. Dylan O’Sullivan. Adam O’Shea and Brian Fitzgerald were the Athletic goal getters.
Mastergeeha had a very good 2-0 away win in Clare as they defeated Ennis Town thanks to Eoin McSweeney and Paul O’Connor.
Listowel Celtic, Killarney Celtic and Fenit are also all in the second round.
