National Cup Results:
Herbertstown A 0-1 Kingdom Boys
Park 8- 1 Chaerdavin Celtic.
Kingdom Boys and The Park moved into the next round of the Under 12 National Cup, but in different circumstances.
The Park were easy winners over Caherdavin Celtic in Tralee. Luke Moynihan, Karl Mullins and Kieran Carmody all hit two goals which were added to by scores from Josh Laucher and Andrew Phillips.
Kingdom Boys were on the road and defeated Herbertstown 1-0 with the goal coming from Seguin Duyile. However an illustration of how tough the game was was shown in the fact that the Kingdom Boys keeper Conor Hurley was man-of-the-match.
Killarney Celtic are still involved as their game against Connolly Celtic was called off due to a bereavement at the Clare club.

League Results and Reports:
As the first snows of winter fell there was a curtailed programme in the League. However, well done to the clubs whose grounds were playable and to the teams that did play.
JK Sports Under 12:
In the JK Sports Div 2, Killarney Celtic B and C had a busy week. They met mid week with the B’s just getting the better of the club-mate on a 3-2 score line. James McAuliffe scored all three goals for his team.
Both sides were in action again on Saturday. The B’s added another point to their total after a 0-0 draw with Killoglin B. Indeed Celtic will be wondering how they didn’t take all three points as they missed two penalties.
Celtic remain second in the table but slipped a further two points behind Divisional leaders Iveragh United. The South Kerry boys continued their great start to the season and are now unbeaten in their seven League games, opening up an 11 points gap at the top.
Pierce McGill 3, Darren Casey 2, Niall Brennan and Shay Flaherty were the scorers in a 7-3 victory over Kingdom Boys.
Killarney Celtic’s C continue to progress and played well earlier in the week but got no reward. However in this game they took all three points in a 2-1 over Mastergeeha B. Conor McCarthy scored both sides for The Hoops.

Dante’s Under 16 Premier:
The Park and Killarney Athletic are joint third in the table and shared the points in a 2-2 draw, narrowing the gap to Kingdom Boys and Killarney Celtic above them.
Aaron Eager and Thomas McLoughlin scored for the Park with Shane O’Sullivan and Jack O’Connor on the mark for Athletic.
Ballyhar moved into second place after their 4-3 win over Castlemaine but had to survive some nerve jangling minutes before they wrapped up the points. Sean Ennis, Owen O’Neill, Shane O’Sullivan and Sean Keane had put Ballyhar 4-0 in front.
But credit to Castlemaine for making a fight of it and pulled three goals back from Cathal Fitzgerald, Shane Prendeville and Jack McCarthy but we just unable to find that equaliser.
