Leaders Iveragh United go 3 from 3 in 12 Premier:
Iveragh United continued their unbeaten run in the JK Sports 12 Premier and are now 9 points after 3 wins from 3 games. The South Kerry side opened the better but it was Listowel Celtic that had the first chance. However they did not take it and 2 goals from Ben Egan and one from Ben O’Donoghue saw the South Kerry side ahead 3-1 at the break, with Cormac Dillon getting the Listowel Celtic score.
Listowel Celtic were more attacking in the second half and when Oisin Healy set up Dillon for his second the North Kerry side was hunting for a point at least. But Iveragh tightened their defence and held on for an important three points.
The Park moves into second place as they won on the same 3-2 score-line as the League leaders. They got the better of Killorglin A thanks to 2 goals from Damien Horgan and one from Michael Tansley. Jack Lynch and Dara O’Connor replied for Killorglin.

Killarney Celtic B are Athletics nearest challengers and have moved onto 6 points as they defeated the Park B 5-2. Cathal Kelly scored twice with Liam Mulhern, Brian O’Connor and Nacho Zulategui getting one each for the Hoops. Noah Townsend and Fillip Novak replied for the Park B.
Mastergeeha miss chance to go top on their own Division 2:
The 3 way tie at the top of Division 2 remains as Masterhgeeha missed the chance to break away from Dingle Bay and MEK. Mastergeeha went down 1-0 to Killarney Athletic B with Archie Parsons getting the vital goal.

The Park goals came from Messiah Chirwah 3, Cianan Cooney 2 and Sean O’Connor 2 with one coming from the penalty spot as they were 7-1 winners at home to Killarney Athletic A.
