Reports:
Killarney Celtic set for trip to the Orchard in the Nat Cup Last 8:
Killarney Celtic have book as place in the Last 8 of the 15’s National Cup thanks to a sudden death penalty win over Renmore from Galway.
In fact Killarney Celtic were never in front in the game until the first penalty when Cathal O’Shae scored after Renmore had missed their first.
But this was a game in which the score-line certainly didn’t reflect the story of the game and indeed if The Hoops lost they would be kicking themselves. However on the form shown in front of goal in this game there is no guarantee they would connect!
Celtic dominated the possession stakes and created enough goal chances to win 3 games but couldn’t find that all important 3rd.
The home side went behind in the 10th minute when Cian Garrnett swooped on a defensive mistake to rifle the ball home from inside the box. However Celtic equalised inside the next ten when a Dion Marcos header was knocked down to Mikey Moynihan who made no mistake from a tight angle,
However in the 29th minute Renmare took the lead. Ryan Forde was fouled just outside the box and he picked himself up to curl home a cracking free kick that gave keeper David Spillane no chance.
But to their credit the Celtic players never dropped their heads and after good spell of pressure they got their reward when Dion Marcos smashed the ball home from inside the box.
Celtic continued to dominate and will be happy with the number of chances they created but disappointed that they didn’t take many more of them. Indeed they were left holding on at the end when Remnore sniffed victory but David Spillane and his defenders held on to take the game into extra time and on into penalties.
Renmore went first and missed while O’Shea put Celtic 1 up. However their advantage was short lived when Emmet Beirne dived full length to his left to save Conor McCarthy’s effort.
Peter McCarthy, Cian Gammell and Dara Moynihan all scored as did Renmore to leave it 4 all after 5 penalties. Into sudden death and when the Renmore number 10 Cian Garrett (who had a great game) blazed over it left to Mikey Moynihan who showed great composure to slot home the spot kick. Killarney Celtic march on to the quarter finals where they will face Cherry Orchard on March 23rd / 24th.
Danone Cup 12’s Last 16: Killarney Celtic bowed out of the 12’s National Cup going down 4-1 to St Kevin’s Boys. The Celtic boys tried hard but found the Dublin kids too hot to handle and went 3-0 down in the first half. However to their credit they kept going, even when Kevin’s made it 4 and got their reward with ten minute to go when Daragh Lyne scored.
But deservedly St Kevins march on where they join their teammates on the second St Kevins team who are also through to the last 8 – some feat for any club.
Kerry Cup’s:
In the 11’s Cup there was one rearranged game and it was Camp who proved too strong for Castleisland. Sean Kennedy had a day to remember hitting 7 goals with David Smith also on the score sheet.
The John Murphy 12’s Cup has 5 teams into the Last 8. Goals from Tadgh McAvoy 2 and Devon McKenna saw Listowel Celtic book their place at the expense of Ballyhar.
Only one goal separated Camp and Killarney Athletic and it was Keith Suter got it for Athletic to put them through. Killorglin, with goals from Dara Purcell and a Jack O’Connor 30 yard screamer late on, beat The Park 2-1. Fergal O’Brien had equalised for The Park.
However their B team club mates couldn’t match Inter Kenmare who are into the next round thanks to goals from Tom Murnane 2, Colm Foley 2, Bucci Nicki and Donal Crowley.
Masstergeeha went through 3-1 at home to St Bernards. Paul O’Shea 2 and Dylan Murphy were on the mark for the Kilbrean team
The other three places will go to the winners of Kingdom Boys v Killarney Celtic B, Fenit against Killarney Celtic C and Killarney Celtic A at home to Asdee.
