Super Saturday and Sunday for trio of teams:
Killorglin see off Newbridge at 14’s:
Following on from the Park 14’s last week Killorglin are also through to the Last 16 of the Skechers National Cup. To make it sweeter for the Kerry side they won on the road defeating Newbridge United 3-2 on their All Weather.
Killorglin went one behind but it was only for a few minutes as Adam Owens equalised. Into the second half and again it was the home side that took the lead. However Killorglin were always in this game and drew level thanks to a Tom Whittleton. And they kept the momentum going and got the winner from Jack O’Sullivan with less than 10 minutes remaining. Next up for Killorglin is another away trip in the Last 16 as they await the winners of Mullingar Athletic and Cherry Orchard Premier. And both the Park and Killorglin are into the Last 5 of the Regional Competition,
Camp Juniors into 15’s Last 16:
Camp Juniors welcomed Blarney United to the KDL All Weather in the Last 32 of the 15’s National Cup. And the Kerry side progressed after a 3-1 win. Despite the blustery conditions Camp were ahead inside 10 minutes when Maurice O’Connell chipped the opposition to open the scoring. It got even better for the home side 10 minutes later when Kian Clancy doubled the scoring with an unstoppable shot. A great first half was rounded off when Cian Wright slotted home from inside the box.
Blarney United plied on the pressure and got one back from a corner that Camp will know they could have defended better. However apart from that blip the Camp Juniors defence were well on top to seal another historic win for the club.
Camp Juniors are at home to Douglas Hall in the Last 16 and will play Tulla United in the Regional Competition.
Listowel Celtic Girls through to the Last 8:
It was also the Last 16 of the FAI Girls 16’s National Cup and after seeing off three Cork teams in the previous rounds Liatowel Celtic welcomed Salthill Devon to Pat Kennedy Park.
And the Girls in the Hoops are through to the Last 8 after a 1-0 win thanks to an Aoife Horgan goal. This was a strong all round team performance against one of the top girls clubs outside of Dublin.
Run Over:
Killorglin 12’s side went down to Midleton 1-0 despite a big effort on the Dragons Den All Weather. Conor Hayes and Ryan Carey were the best on the day for Killorglin.
The Listowel Celtic 14’s National Cup run is also over as they were beaten 3-0 away to Mallow United.
Kerry’s interest in the 16’s National Cup came to an end when both The Park and Killarney Celtic went out. The Park were well beaten by Charleville at Christy Leahy Park with Terrance Carmody getting their goal.
Killarney Celtic were at the UL All Weather to face Fairview Rangers from Limerick and the game was scoreless after full and extra time. It was the Limerick side that progressed from the spot kicks on a 5-3 score-line. Both Celtic and the Park are still in their Regional Competition.
