Both 14’s Girls teams progress in National Cup
When the draw for the third round of the SFAI 14’s National Cup is made the KSBGL will have at least three teams in the bowl. It could be four as Listowel Celtic have to travel to Regional for their second round clash.
With Inter Kenmare already through they were joined by MEK Galaxy and Killarney Celtic on a very good day for the girl’s game in Kerry. MEK Galaxy defeated Bridge United in Clare thanks to two hat tricks from Naoishe O’Donoghue and Keeva Riordan and one goal each from Maggie Quirke and Izzy Lyons in an 8-4 win.
