Match Reports
Kerry bow out of 13’s plate at semi-final stage:
The Kerry 13’s Subway Inter League season came to an end at Mounthawk Park when they went out in the Munster Plate semi-final. They went down 3-2 to South Tipperary with the visitors winner coming with almost the last kick of the game.
South Tipp went in front in the 21st minute but Kerry hit back three minutes later when Andrew Kerins reacted quickest to a parry from the opponents keeper.
Kerry keeper Darragh Foley made two good saves early in the second half and then Kerry went in front thanks to a J J Olitijan goal.
But when ten minutes to go South Tipp levelled matters from a free kick and then in the last minute Sam Hill did very well to control a ball into the box and finished low into the corner giving Foley no chance,
