Listowel Celtic’s take 12’s Girls Cup:
The business end of the Kerry Schoolboys Girls League has begun with the first trophy of the season going to Listowel Celtic. They defeated Inter Kenmare to win the John Murphy 12’s Cup 5-3.
The North Kerry girls were looking to retain the Cup they won last year and got the better start to the game thanks to goals from Katie Keane 2, Kellie Enright and Ciara Henderson. Credit to the Inter Kenmare girls, who have already won the Premier Division they fought back with Chloe Cremin hitting a hat trick and Molly Bhamvra controlling midfield.
Listowel Celtic led 4-3 at the break and with both sides defences playing really well in the second half the game was in the melting pot until Enright hit her second to wrap up the win.
The Kerry Schoolboys Girls League Chairman Martin Conway was on hand to present the trophy to Listowel Celtic.
Park A and Killorglin to contest 12’s Cup final:
The final of the John Murphy 12’s Cup will be between Park A and Killorglin. The Tralee side were too strong for Mastergeeha in Kilbrean Park. A Ciaran Cooney hat trick, 2 from Messiah Chirwa and one from Colin Doody sees The Park into the decider.
Killorglin were at home in their semi-final against Park B and won 2-0 thanks to goals from Tom Whittleton and Jack O’Sullivan. However it was not all clear cut as Killorglin needed keeper Eoin Lynch on a number of occasions to keep them in the game.
Semi-final and final spots sorted in 12’s Shield:
The last two places in semi-finals were in the John Murphy 12’s Shield and were decided in mid-week. Killarney Athletic B were 3-0 winners over LB Rovers. Caoilte Cronin, Hugh O’Malley and Daire Looney got the goals for the Woodlawn side.
They will meet Killorglin C in the semi-final after they knocked out Listowel Celtic B following an epic that went all the way to penalties. John Burke scored twice for Killorglin with Tony Boland doing the same for Listowel Celtic.
Killorglin C’s goalkeeper Dara Crosby was the hero as he saved three penalties to see his side progress 3-2.

Park and Ballyhar through in 14’s Cup crackers:
The Tom Hayes 14’s Cup will be between Park A and Ballyhar after two cracking semi-finals. The Park went 2-0 up thanks to goals from Leo Gaxha and Colin Walsh from the penalty spot. However Killarney Celtic equalised when James Darmody struck twice. But the Park had the last say and it was Sean McGrath who emerged as the hero hitting the winner.
The Killorglin versus Ballyhar semi-final was even closer and it took sudden death penalty from goalkeeper Cian Ring to send Ballyhar through to the final. Jack O’Connor had Killorglin ahead before goals from Danny Cronin and Craig Boyle swung the game in favour of the side from Murt Scott Park. O’Connor then hit his second with the last kick of the game to send the tie to extra time. With not further scores it was onto penalties and all ten were scored.
For Ballyhar Jason Brennan, Dylan Callaghan, Danny Cronin, Pat O’Connor and Craig Boyle were successful for Ballyhar. Into sudded death and Cian Ring became the Ballyhar hero. The goalkeeper scored the successful spot kick to send his side through to the final.
Dingle Bay need extra time in 14’s Shield:
Dingle Bay Rovers needed extra time to get past Mastergeeha in the first of the 14’s Shield semi-finals. Colm O’hHeartain put Dingle Bay ahead at the break before Shane Warren equalised to send the game to extra time. Dylan Geaney got the winner for Dingle Bay 2 minutes into that extra period and they held on to win.
The West Kerry side will meet either Camp Juniors or Park D in the decider.
