Match Reports:

National Cup:

Under 12 National Cup: There was no luck for Kerry’s two teams who played this weekend. Kingdom Boys went down 4-0 to Villa from Waterford while Killarney Celtic were very unlucky to lose with the last kick of the game away to Clonmel Town. Celtic were 1-0 up at half time but Clonmel equalised early in the second period and then won very late on.

Under 16 National Cup:  Killarney Celtic were pushed all the way by Curracloe United but eventually came through 3-2 after extra time to qualify for the next round. Celtic went ahead through Kieran Murphy but then the away side took over to go 2-1 up. Liam O’Sullivan equalised for the home side and the game went to extra time with Killarney Celtic’s winner coming from Wayne Sparling.


Under 12 JK Sports Premier:

Mastergeeha jumped to the top of the Division with a 1-0 away win over Killarney Athletic with the goal coming from Thomas Fleming. Mastergeeha are now on 11 points ahead of Killarney Celtic, Kingdom Boys and Killarney Athletic but they do have more games played than those around them.

Listowel Celtic added three much needed points to their total as they defeated Fenit 3-1. Cathal Kennedy hit two with Johnny O’Sullivan getting the other.

Under 14 O’Callaghan’s Coaches Premier:

Killarney Celtic opened up the game at the top of this Division to four points as they beat third placed Dingle Bay 4-2. Matt Keane, Paudie Clifford and two from Jordan Kiely gave Celtic the points. Dingle Bay’s goals were scored by Colm Begley and Cathal Bambury.

Killarney Athletic edged closer to the sides above them as they defeated Ballyhar on the same scoreline at Murt Scott Park. Danny Sheerin scored twice for Athletic who also had Chris O’Meara and Danny Healy on the mark. James o’Donoghue hit both for Ballyhar with one coming from the penalty spot.

Dante’s Under 16 Premier;

Only one game went ahead but it was an important one for Kingdom Boys, with Killarney Celtic in National Cup action.

Kingdom Boys duly took the point to move level with Killarney Celtic at the top of the table, with both sides unbeaten on 15 points. Kingdom Boys goals came from Michael Wrenn, Daragh Carmody and Jonathan Hannafin. Jack O’Connor replied for Atheltic.

Div 1:

Iveragh United over top spot on their own, as joint leaders Camp weren’t playing. The South Kerry boys defeated Listowel Celtic 2-1 with both goals coming from Darragh Scanlon, the winner coming in the last minute.

Girls League:

Listowel Celtic’s Under 12’s are now unbeaten in their five League games to date and this weekend were 4-0 winners over their Celtic namesakes Killarney. Aoife Behan, Aideen Spillane and two from Jackie Horgan move Listowel Celtic onto 15 points.

What the under 12 Girls did, the Under 16 doubled with an 8-0 win over the same opposition. Listowel are favourites to win this Division and are now 3 from 3. Savanah McCarthy and Lauren Flavin both hit two each with Caoimhe O’Sullivan, Amy Griffin, Laura Foley and Olivia Scanlon all getting one each.

Kerry Cups First Round – The Under 12 John Murphy Cup:

The League changed the format of the Cup’s for this season to give the teams from the Divisions outside of the Premier the chance of getting a round or two before the big teams come in. The following teams are through to the second round – Kingdom Boys B, who defeated Park B (Ciaran Sheehan, Danny Brosnan, Dylan McCarthy), Park A who got the better of Fenit B 3-0 and Killarney Celtic C who progressed on a 2-0 score-line over Clanmaurice. The game of the round was Inter Kenmare and Killorglin which went all the way to penalties.

Denis Cronin and Dylan O’Sullivan swapped goals in normal time with Inter’s Darragh Siochru and Killorglin’s Aaron Foley made it 2-2 after extra time. On to the spot kicks and Denis Cronin, Daniel Taylor, Chris O’Sullivan Casey and Daargh Sweeney were all successful to put Inter through.

The Tom Hayes Under 14 Cup:

Goals galore were the order of the day in the under 14 Cup first round. Asdee defeated Iveragh 7-3 after extra time with the sides drawing 3-3 after full time.

Liam and Mathew O’Sullivan and Brian Sugure scored for Iveragh but goals from Andrew Doherty 3, Ryan Henry, George O’Brien and Dara and Sean Keane sent Asdee into round 2.

Mastergeeha had goals from Darren O’Connor, Chris White, Oscar O’Connor and Neil O’Mahoney in their 4-1 win over Park B.

Listowel Celtic defeated Clanmaurice 3-1 thanks to goals from Dale Mulvihill 2 and Derek Dillon while Killorglin were 4-1 winners at home to Kingdom Boys. Killorglin’s goals came from Aidan Cox 2, Daniel McBeth and Tommy Cahill.

Castlemaine and Inter Kenmare was a very tight affair with only the odd goal in five separating them. Cathal O’Connor, Owen O’Brien and Daniel O’Connor scored for Castlemaine while Killian Spillane and David Hallissey replied for Inter.
