JK Sports 12 Girls Premier:
Killarney Celtic Green still top of the table:
The battle of the two Killarney Celtic girls in this Division proved to be an enjoyable game. The Green team are slightly more experienced than their younger White club mates who gave a good account of themselves. The goals for the Greens came from Ava O’Malley, Bronagh Dorrian, Leah McMahon, Aideen O’Brien and Katie Doe who are now unbeaten in their 4 games.
Inter Kenmare are on their heels after they defeated Fenit to win their third game from three played. Tara Desmond, Saoirse Buckley, Helena O’Donoghue, Paige Cronin, Katie O’Connor and two from Grace Foley gave Inter the points.
Camp Juniors are only three points off second after they defeated Listowel Celtic in Listowel thanks to two goals from Sinead Murphy. Kelly Enright replied for Listowel Celtic.
Iveragh United go top of 13 Premier:
Iveragh United are the new leaders of the Daly’s Supervalu 13 Premier after the climbed about Killarney Athletic after beating them in Woodlawn.
Ben O’Donoghue was on fire and his goals were added to be strikes from Kieran O’Donnell, Zack Fayen, Finn Barrett, Oisin Breen and Donagh Shine O’Sullivan. The South Kerry side move onto 7 points.
Killarney Celtic has joined Killarney Athletic in second place on 5 points after they defeated Mastergeeha 3-0 in Kilbrean Park. Nattigan Ryan put Celtic ahead and they doubled their lead from an Eoghan Crowley penalty before half time. Crowley added his second and his sides third in the second half.
Killorglin and The Park both needed the three points but in the end will probably settle for a point. Stephen Barrett put the Tralee side ahead but Dara O’Connor equalised late on for Killorglin who lost Jack Lynch to injury and we wish him a speedy recovery.
Leaders Listowel Celtic now 6 from 6:
Listowel Celtic are now on 6 wins from 6 in the 13’s Division 1 after the proved too strong for Killarney Celtic B. Their goals came from Evan Boyle 3, Cormac Dillon 2, James Wong, Rob Heffernan and Shane Horgan.

Tralee Dynamos work on the training ground paid off with a win thanks to a last minute Tom Quilligan goal that gave them all three points from their trip to Dingle Bay Rovers.

The Park have moved into third place after a come from behind win over Killarney Celtic at Celtic Park. Cian McMahon and William Shine had put Killarney Celtic 2-1 up with David Callaghan replying for the Tralee side. But Cian Brosnan proved to be the match winner as he hit two late goals.
Tralee Dynamos remain in third in Division 1:
Tralee Dynamos and Fenit played out a 3-3 draw that sees Dynamos move to within two points of third place. The Tralee side took the lead through Sean Hoare but Fenit came back strongly and led 2-1 at half time thanks to goals from Danny Jeffers and Eddie McCarthy.
Dynamos got the better start of the second half and levelled matters when Andy Rogers scored. But this game was swinging to and fro and it was Fenit the stuck next with Eddie McCarthy scoring from the penalty spot.
They looked like they were going to hold on for all three points but there was more drama when Dynamos were awarded a penalty themselves. Sean Dillane made no mistake to ensure a shore of the points from both sides.
Rattoo Rovers now top of Division 2:
Rattoo Rovers have moved onto 12 points from their 4 games and have gone three points ahead of Ballyheigue who were not playing. Rattoo Rovers points come after a 3-0 score line over Listowel Celtic Girls.
