Under 12 National Cup Last 16
Springfield Ramblers 3-1 St Brendan’s Park.
The Tralee side’s run in the National Cup came to an end in Cobh as they went down 3-1 to Springfield Ramblers, the feeder club of Cobh Ramblers. The Park went 1-0 up inside the first minute but Ramblers equalised before half time. The Cork side went ahead with less than ten minutes to go and as The Park chased for an equaliser they were caught on the break. They did fight all the way and were unlucky to hit the post on two occasions.

Ballyhar were 5-1 winners over Camp A at Murt Scott Park thanks to goals from Donal O’Sullivan 2 and one each from Niall O’Donoghue, Shane Kennedy and Denis O’Mahoney.
Listowel Celtic will have two teams in the hat as their C team defeated Castlemaine 4-1 and their A’s were too strong for Killarney Celtic B. Listowel Celtic C will be delighted with their win and their goals came from Fergal Wall 2, Darragh O’Donoghue and Sean Keane. Darragh Lyne replied for Killarney Celtic B from the penalty spot.

Killarney Celtic 2-0 Listowel Celtic
Mastergeeha 3-5 Killarney Athletic B
Killarney Athletic 6-0 Castlemaine
Killarney Celtic B 1-1 Camp AET. Camp win 4-3 on penalties.
If there was a prize for Game of the Day then the Mastergeeha v Killarney Athletic B Cup tie would be the run-away winner. With ten minutes to go the name of Mastergeeha was being written in the draw for the next round. Goals from Eoin McSweeney 2 and Shane Crowley put the Kilbrean side 3-0 up. However, great credit must go to Athletic B, who didn’t drop their heads, and scored an amazing five goals in the closing stages to grab the Last 8 spot.
Billy Courtney, Ryan Sweeney, Ronan Brosnan and two from David Shaw got the goals to complete the remarkable comeback.
Killarney won the battle of the Celtic’s winning 2-0 at home to Listowel. Evan Cronin and Mike McCarthy got the goals.
Killarney Athletic A ensured that the Blue side of Killarney will have two teams in the hat after they got the better of Castlemaine 6-0. Dylan O’Sullivan and Ronan Buckley got two each with Adam O’Shea and Conor O’Donoghue getting the other two.
Kingdom Boys are also through. They were 2-1 winners over Fenit for whom Bobby O’Regan scored.
It took penalties to separate Killarney Celtic B and Camp after the game finished 1-1 after extra time. Indeed Celtic B will consider themselves unlucky as they scored both the goals in the game, with Camps goal being an og. However it was the visitors that prevailed after penalties with Camp going through 4-3.
The Park B v Ballyhar and Killorglin v Park A were postponed due The Park’s involvement in the Under 12 National Cup while Castleisland and Inter Kenmare will meet this Friday at 10.30am

Inter Kenmare 2-0 Clanmaurice
Ballyheigue 1-2 Park B
Castlemaine 4-4 Killorglin AET – Killorglin win 4-3 on penalties.
Park 3-0 Killarney Athletic.
Camp, Castleisland and Kingdom Boys were given byes into the last eight while the date for the Killarney Celtic and Listowel Celtic clash has still to be confirmed so there were four places in the Last 8 on offer this weekend.
Inter Kenmare went through without having to kick a ball as they got a walk-over from Clanmaurice. The Park B defeated debutants Ballyheigue 2-1. This was Ballyheigue’s debut in the Schoolboys League as they plan on joining the League proper next season and going down by only one goal was a very creditable performance. Dietmar Adaemj and Rhyss Barry were on the mark for The Park.
The Park A side also progressed winning 3-0 at home to Killarney Athletic. Greg Horan, Anthony Burke and Rory Cheevers were the scorers.
Castlemaine and Killorglin were involved in thriller that finished 4-4 after extra time. Castlemiane looked to be on course to progress, being 4-2 ahead with two minutes left but two very late goals sent the game into extra time and ultimately penalties. Killorglin progressed 4-3 on penalties.

Moriarty’s Centra Under 11:
Under 11 Div 2: Unbeaten Fenit continue to lead the way and are now on 21 points from seven games played. They were 6-0 winners over one of their nearest challengers Listowel Celtic meaning that the gap back to the two sides in joint second place – Listowel Celtic and Castleisland is nine points. Alan McGillicuddy had a day to remember netting five of the six goals with Christopher Murphy getting the other.
Under 11 Div 3: The Park B and Inter Kenmare played out an 8 goal thriller in a game where both sides needed full points. Dean O’Connell, Eimhin Lyons, Phil Maunsell and Ronan O’Keeffe were the Park’s scorers.
Daly’s Supervalu Under 13:
Under 13 Div 1 is one of the tightest Divisions in the League with four sides separated by a point after this weekend’s games. Ballyhar and Killorglin A were both tied at the top of the table, alongside Castleisland and Mastergeeha, at the start of play so it was probably no surprise that the game ended in a 1-1 draw. John McMahon scored for Ballyhar with Paddy Collins replying for Killorglin.
Killarney Plaza Under 15:
In the Premier Division Castleisland and Kingdom Boys met in a mid week encounter with the hom e side winning 6-1 to move into second place in the table. Kevin Brown, Damien Breen and Shane O’Connor all scored two each.
Joint leaders in the Under 15 Div 1 Camp travelled to Tralee with a depleted side and paid the price going down 2-1 to Kingdom Boys. Hughie O’Brien got the Camp goal but an improving Kingdom Boys B side deserved to take three important points for them. Clanmaurice and Camp are still tied at the top but Clanmaurice now have a game in hand.
