Match Reports
Second win in Kennedy Cup Group Stages for Kerry
Kerry 5-2 North Tipperary
Kerry wrapped up their Kennedy Cup Group F campaign with a 5-2 win over North Tipperary at Listowel Celtic. Kerry started well with Fionn Doolan and Luke Doolan bringing sales from the North Tipperary keeper but they also threatened only for Harvey Mangan to make a very good save.
And the visitors went in front in the 7th minute when Austin Duff was able to pick his spot and he finished very well. Kerry upped the pace and looked like they had equalised only for Luke Doolan’s shot to back off the inside of the post.
However Kerry were level in the 28th minute when Doolan was fouled in the box and he stepped up to slot the spot kick home.
And inside five minutes of the second half a pin point Sam Slattery cross was headed home by Fionn Daly. North Tipp were battling hard and Kerry needed a last ditch tackle from Eanna Murphy to stay ahead.
The home side doubled their lead in the 42nd minute when Brian O’Shea set up Jayden Deady but a ball over the top of the Kerry defence 5 minutes later saw Paul Molloy outpace the retreating defenders to smash the ball past Mangan to close the gap to 1 goal.
Kerry again upped the pace of their build-up play and O’Shea was again the provider, this time for James Jones in the 52nd minute and the win was completed when Ryan Carroll hit their fifth.
Billy Stacks charges finish the Group in second place behind Limerick District and now wait for their final draw as the Kennedy Cup enters the knock out stages.
