Match Reports:
Girls League’s kick off with wins for the two Celtic’s:
The Kerry SchoolGirls Leagues kicked off this weekend with the two Celtic’s winning over Athletic’s two teams. Killarney Celtic were 5-0 winners over Killarney Athletic in Woodlawn thanks to two goals each from Chloe O’Connor and Kerri Ann Hanrahan and one from Shauna O’Donoghue.
In the 14 Premier Athletic were away to Listowel Celtic and went down by the same score. Aoife Horgan was the North Kerry girls scoring hero hitting 4 with Caoimhe Spillane getting the other.
To be fair to the Killarney Athletic girls they are a little less experienced than the two Celtic teams but they had very good performances from Jade Potts, Jessica O’Sullivan, Lillie Foley and Anna Hannigan and with the effort they are putting in they will improve during the season.
Draws for the Boys:
JK Sports 12 Premier:
Leader Kingdom Boys are still the ones to catch in the JK Sports 12 Premier as they moved onto 9 points from their three games with a 4-1 home win over Killarney Athletic.
Leo Gaxha, John Carmody and 2 from Sean Kennedy gave the Tralee side the points who now have a new chaser. Killorglin leapfrog Listowel Celtic and onto 6 points thanks to a 5-1 over the North Kerry side who remain on 4 points. Mikey Nolan got the Listowel goals but it wasn’t nearly enough as Gearoid Hassett 2, Dave McKeefry, Ethan Coffey and Jack O’Connor all scored to give Killorglin the points.
Also on 6 points are Killarney Celtic A who won by the same margin in their clash at home to Park A. Ryan O’Grady took the match ball with a hat trick and Paraic Looney and James Dennehy added one each.
Division 1:
Castleisland now lead the way and they made it 5 from 5 with a 3-0 win over Killarney Celtic C. Connie O’Connor, Peter Burke and Colum Roche were the goal scorers for the winners.

Foundation Sports 14 Premier:
Kingdom Boys will be the happiest of all the teams in this Division as they picked up three points while their nearest challengers were playing out a 0-0 draw.
Goals from the deadly duo of Dillon Robinson 4 and Dara Lowth 3 saw the Tralee boys take the points from their trip to Listowel Celtic for whom Jake Keeley scored twice
With Kingdom Boys moving onto 10 points neither Killarney Celtic nor The Park really wanted a draw. It leaves The Park on 8 and Killarney Celtic on 4 points.
Castleisland had goals from Denis O’Mahoney and Eddie Horan as they pick up their first point of the season in a 2-2 draw with Inter who are also no on the board.
Division 1:
The two unbeaten sides at the top of the table met and it’s Killarney Celtic B who remain unbeaten and on 9 points. It was always going to be close but Celtic went 2-0 ahead and despite Davidas pulling one back for Camp they just could not find the equaliser.
Killarney Athletic are in second and only 2 points behind their neighbours after a 7-1 win over the second Celtic side in this Division. Jason Coffey top scored with 3 followed by Jack Sweeney, Liam Curran, Finbarr Hickey and an og.
Mastergeeha and The Park played out an exciting 3-3 draw but it doesn’t really help either of them. Mark Regan, Alfie Christie and a cracker from the half way line from Padraig McCannon sees the Tralee side get their first point of the season. Goals from David Twomey, Niall O’Connor and Dylan Murphy got Mastergeeha the draw.

Division 1:
Leaders The Park were going for their 6th win but were undone by Listowel Celtic B. Daonnagh O’Brien 2 and Sean Tansley got goals for the Park but with Cathal Kennelly hitting 4, Jack Healy 2 and Brian Mason and Ashley Kelliher pen getting one each the points stayed in Pat Kennedy Park.
