The home side scored from three attacks in the 17th, 20th and 22nd minute to lead 3-0 at the break. But credit to the Kerry side they were a transformed side in the second half and pulled a goal back early when Tom Whittleton finished a Cillian Murphy corner to the net. And Kerry were right back in the game in the 58th minute when Ronan Teehan’s sweet flick made it 3-2. Kerry did everything to get the equaliser including forcing 5 corners but when Mathew Horgan’s effort hit the foot of the post in the last minute it meant the home side held on to the narrowest of wins. 12’s draw both games away to Clare In the Subway 12’s Inter League Kerry drew 2-2 away to Clare with Jack Joy scoring both goals for Kerry in their second of 5 group games. The Leagues also played a Development game which ended 1-1. Luke Doolan was on the mark for Kerry.

But this side thrives on pressure and eased any nerves with an Andrew Kerins opener after only 10 minutes. It got even better for the Kerry side ten minutes later when Ciaran Kavanagh doubled the Park’s advantage to leave then 2-0 up at the break. As expected the Donegal side fought back in the second half and pulled one back on 40 minutes. But the combination of the excellent Oisin O’Halloran in the Park goal and a goal in the 50th minute for Immanuel Manu wrapped up a great win on the road.
