Uneven’s National Cup:
13’s Round 1:
The opening week of the Uneven’s National Cup saw 14 Kerry sides in action and with two facing each other there were possibilities for 13 0f them to go through. And the good news for Kerry is that 10 have progressed to the next round.
One side that didn’t get to play, through no fault of their own, was Killarney Celtic in the 13’s Round 1. There game with Limerick FC didn’t go ahead as the Shannon side are in a disciplinary dispute with their League and Celtic will have to await the outcome of this.
First into action were Mastergeeha who welcomed Cork side Shelbourne to Kilbrean Park. And it was the home side that prevailed on a 6-2 score-line. Dylan Murphy was the hero, top scoring with a hat trick. These were added to by goals from Niall O’Connor and Paul O’Shea with the 6th being an og.
Listowel Celtic made home advantage count in a 8-1 over Ennis Town. James Donegan hit a hat trick, Stephen McCarthy and Devon McKenna got two each and Darragh Mackessey the in a good win.
The Park were the only Kerry side on the road and were involved in a great battle with Charleville. It went all the way to penalties after finishing 2-2 following extra time with Leon Shambala getting both goals for the Tralee side.
The Park had heroes in both aspects of the penalty shoot-out with Padraig McCannon, Alfie Christie, Seb Vasu and Conor Hayse successful from the spot while in the Park goal Conor Hayse made two great saves to see his side through.
Kingdom Boys had it a bit easier than their neighbours as they defeated Regional 3-1 in Tralee. Nemanja Samardzic, John Carmody and Sean Kennedy were on the mark for the home side.
Killorglin won’t fear anyone in the competition, especially at home, and here were 7-0 winner over Caherdavin Celtic in Killorglin. Gearoid Hassett is a goal scorer with real potential and hit another hat trick here. David Mangan, Dean Callan, Martin Foley and Eoin Clifford all got one each.
Killarney Athletic were made fight all the way by Ardcroney in Woodlawn. The home side went ahead from a corner just before half time through Tadgh Doolan. The visitors through everything at Athletic in the second half, but the Blue’s held out.
Unfortunately Ballyhar lost out in their second round game against Creeves Celtic at Murt Scott Park. The home side had goals from Jason Brennan and Dylan Callaghan but they weren’t enough as they went down 6-2.
15’s National Cup:
There was much better news for Ballyhar in the 15’s first round as they won the all Kerry clash away to The Park 4-1. A Joseph Benjamin goal for the Park was only a consolation as an og, 2 from Aaron McCarthy and one from David Kenny were enough to put Ballyhar into Round 2.
Killarney Athletic are the other Kerry side as they ran up against a St Pats tear in top form. Sadly Athletic’s run in this competition is over as they lost in Clare 8-1.
The other 4 Kerry sides in action all progressed. Mastergeeha were very impressive at Kilbrean Park as they put 7 without reply past Janesboro. Patrick Warren and Padraig Nagle were left to fight over the match ball as they both hit hat tricks. Brian Friel added the seventh in a super display.
Listowel Celtic went one better on the scoring front but also conceded one as they knocked out Corbally. Neilus Mackessy was on fire hitting 5 goals with Darren Loughnane, Barry O’Mahony and Daniel Power adding one each.
Kingdom Boys were on the road and their game against Shannon Town went all the way to spot kicks. Patrick Roche and Rian O’Sullivan scored in normal time in a 2 all draw.
