Skechers National Cup 15’s Last 8
St Brendan’s Park 1-0 Kells Blackwater
The Park 15’s continue to fly the flag for Kerry soccer as they have reached the semi-finals of the 15’s National Cup. They did this be defeating Kells Blackwater 1-0 at Christy Leahy Park. The goal came in the final minutes of the game when Odhran Ferris finished off a Nathan Rogers corner. They win was even more remarkable as this Park side have just supplied 8 players to the Kerry 15’s League of Ireland squad and had to call up a number of u14 players. The reward for the Park is a home tie in the Last 4 when Stella Maris will be the visitors to Tralee.
Subway Inter League action
The Kerry 12’s put in another very good performance in the Subway Inter League but probably were just not clinical enough when going down 2-1 to Limerick Desmond at Mounthawk Park. Mathew Rogers got the Kerry goal.

MEK put in a great effort at home to Killarney Celtic A but it was the Hoops who progress 2-1. Noah O’Shea put MEK ahead but Odhran O’Shea levelled matters before the break. And it was man of the match Oisin Fleming that grabbed the winner in the second half.
Killarney Celtic B enjoyed a strong first half against Fenit B and carried that form through the second half to go into the Round 2 hat with Fenit B, like all the first round losers, bar Premier teams , go into the Shield. Sean O’Mahoney, Jake Downing, Ronan Fahy, Eoin Murphy, Pa O’Brien and Kevin Looney were on the mark for Celtic with Sean Jeffers replying for MEK..
