Under 11 Cup First Round:
The decision to seed the Cups, and to not bring the Premier teams into the competition until the second round, has definitely worked with some of the smaller teams having great wins in this first round.
Camp were already in the hat for round two and they have been joined by Listowel Celtic B who were delighted with their 2-0 away win over Inter Kenmare. Fergal Wall was the Listowel hero.
Also through are Killarney Celtic C who were 4-1 winners over their neighbours Athletic B. Dillon Leen Fitzgerald, Eoin Moynihan, Igor Iozk and John Quilligan were the Hoops scorers.
Killarney Celtic B emulated their club mates as they defeated a slightly less experienced Behy Rovers side. Michael Devlin got all three goals.
Killorglin A were too strong for Fenit and go through with goals from Ian McGillicuddy 3, Padraig Cronin 2, Jonathan Kissane, Dylan O’Sullivan 2, Alan McCarthy and Dara O’Sullivan.
Ballyhar Dynamos join those sides after their 5-0 home win over Listowel Celtic B.
However there is no doubt as to what was the tie of the round. Asdee got the better of Park B 10-9 on penalties, despite the best efforts Cian Talbot in the Park goal. Fionan Twomey and Niall Downing were on the mark for Asdee with Ed Moynihan and Phil Maunsell replying for the Park. Spot kicks are a very tough way to lose, especially after scoring nine but credit must go to all the Asdee players who kept their composure to just sneak through.

Jason O’Connor 2 and Oisin Fleming scored for Ballyhar but goals from Max Benner, Ryan Dolan, Kian McGarry and Jack McCarthy gave Fenit the points to move them onto 9 and into fourth place.

Dante’s Under 16 Div 1:
Both Ballyhar and St Bernards were level on 10 points in third place in the League at the start of play so you would expect this to be a close affair. However it was nothing of the sort and it is St Bernards who move into second place, a point ahead of Camp and only two behind Iveragh United following an 11-1 win.
Daniel Collins was unstoppable hitting 5, Brian O’Leary got 3 with Stephen Egan, Sean O’Mahoney and Michael O’Leary getting one each.
Under 14’s – Killarney Celtic defeated Camp 3-1 to move a little closer to top side Listowel Celtic.
Under 16’s – Listowel Celtic were too strong for Killarney Celtic and are now unbeaten in their two League games, chasing Inter who are unbeaten in four. The two sides have to meet in what could be a League decider.
