National League Update:
The Kerry 13’s were at home to Cork City who had won this Group before this game. The visitors took a 2-0 early lead but then Kerry fought back through a Shane Stack penalty and a Darragh Lynch goal to level matters. But credit to Cork they hit straight back and then with Kerry chasing he game ran out 6-2 winners.
The Kerry 15’s have secured second place in their Group and wrapped up the first phase of the League with a 4-0 win at Limerick. All the goals came in the second half thanks to Jamie O’Shea 2, Oisin Breen and Alex Hennigan.
Gaynor Group series ends:
In this unusual year for all sports it is great to see the Girls Gaynor Cup being played out to its conclusion. Kerry 13’s and 15’s finished their Group games away to one of the favourites for the overall competition Cork.
The 15’s put in a great first half with Ciara Henderson scoring but Cork were 3-1 ahead at the break. In the second half both sides ran their benches and Cork’s strength in depth showed as they won 6-1 with two of the goals coming from the penalty spot.
The Kerry 13’s will take a huge amount of confidence into the next round of the Girls Gaynor competition. They went down to Group winner Cork 1-0 with the goal coming in the final moments of the game. The Kerry gave it all for the whole game and certainly deserved at least a point from their trip to Lakewood.
Both the Kerry 13’s and 15’s Gaynor Girls sides will know this week what their remaining games in the competition are.
