Wilton United 3–4 Inter Kenmare
Inter rock Wilton in Cork:
Inter Kenmare travelled to Cork in Round 3 of the Girls 14’s National Cup and put in one of the best performances by a Kerry girls’ team for a long time.
They are now into the Last 32 of the Cup thanks to a 4-3 win. But at half time a Kerry win did not look likely as the Cork side led 2-0.
However Chloe Cremin pulled one back right after half time and then Grace Foley equalised. Inter were then awarded a penalty which Foley struck home. Wilton were then awarded a penalty but this was missed. However inside the last 15 minutes of the game they did equalise.
But again the Inter Kenmare girls showed great character and they attacked and got their deserved winner with less than 5 minutes to go.
This win copper fastens the progress being made at underage girls soccer in the county.
