Kingdom Boys Postponed Charleville
Killarney Athletic 2-3 Park. AET
Templemore 5-3 Listowel Celtic.
Kerry will have at least 2 representatives in the Open Draw for the Uneven section of the National Cup, with the possibility of Kingdom Boys also getting through in the 11’s section as their game with Aisling Annacotty is being re-fixed for December 10th.
Definitely through to the Round 5 are Killarney Celtic’s 11’s and The Park’s 15’s. The Killarney Celtic’s youngsters overcame a very strong Aisling Annacotty team 3-1 thanks to a Ryan Kelliher hat trick.
There was always going to be one Kerry side through in the 15’s as The Park travelled to Killarney Athletic and it was nip and tuck all the way. Eventually after extra time it was the visitors who progress thanks to two goals from James Duggan and one from Jessie Stafford Lacey.
Unfortunately it’s the end of the road for Kingdom Boys 11’s who went down 4-2 to Granville. Leo Gaxha and Cody Murphy scored for the Tralee boys but it just wasn’t enough.
Killorglin 13’s are also out having gone down to a very good Mungret side. Two goals from Chris Elbell and one from Jason Foley weren’t enough to see Listowel Celtic into the next round as they conceded five to Templemore.
Following next week’s Even’s Round 4 where another 5 Kerry sides will progress the Draw will be made at the SFAI Executive Council meeting which is being held in Killarney on December 10th.
