Halloween Week’s Reports
National Cup Up-date
Park 15’s into Last 32 and Open Draw:
St Brendan’s Park became the first Kerry side this season to reach the Open Draw and Last 32 of the National Cup. They just got passed Killorglin in the all-Kerry clash thanks to two goals from Colin Doody and one from Sean O’Connor with Luke O’Connell in great form for the winners.
Darragh O’Grady and Eoghan Hassett got the Killorglin goals.
13’s National Cup Round 3:
Killarney Celtic were on the back foot from early on away to Caherdavin Celtic and needed keeper Callum Cronin and their defence to keep the home side at bay. Fiachra Roarty did go close for the Kerry side but then Caherdavin broke and took the lead following a long ball over the top. A second quickly followed and the Limerick side wrapped up the win late in the 2nd half as Celtic were pusing hard to get back into the game.
Killorglin are also out going down 3-1 away to Avenue United in Clare. The home side led 1-0 at half time and then got a second when the Killorglin defence was looking for an off-side flag that didn’t come. They then chased the game and were unlucky not to get the goal back and conceded the 3rd with the last kick of the game as Avenue broke away with Killorglin committed to attack.
Leaders held to a draw in the 12 Girls Premier:
Naoise O’Donoghue put League leaders Inter Kenmare ahead in their home game against Killarney Celtic Green. However Maggie McCarthy equalised to give both sides a point each. Inter still lead the way on 7 points.
Listowel Celtic were just a little too strong for Fenit who had good performances from Emer O’Sullivan and Muireann O’Brien. But goals from Lisa Slattery, Laura Falvey, Emile Browne, Sinead Lyons, Niamh Kelliher and Molly Boyle gave Listowel Celtic the three points.
There was a huge crowd for the MEK Starz v MEK Kickerz derby. And it proved to be a cracker with the sides sharing 8 goals.
Izzy McGrath hit 3 and Kate McCann 1 for the Kickerz while Kayla Roche, Emily Buckley and Keeva Riordan had the Starz well in touch and then a last minute equaliser, and a 2nd by Kayla Roche ensured a fair share of the points.
3 Sides on 6 points in 14’s Girls Premier
