MWFAI 14’s ¼ Final:
Killarney Celtic 5-0 Carragiline:
The Killarney Celtic Girls made it two winning weekends in a row in the Munster WFAI Cup to qualify for the semi-finals. In the end it was 5-0 to the Celtic girls but to be fair to their Cork counterparts they tried very hard despite the fact that they travelled with only 11 players and were missing a number of starters. Despite losing they qualify for the Plate section. But it’s the last four of the main competition for Celtic where they join Kilmallock, Hollyhill and Listowel Celtic or Nenagh whose ¼ must still be played.
Celtic started very brightly and forced a number of corners and created some very good chances but found Carragiline keeper Grace Bateman in great form. She pulled off some great saves from Hannah O’Donoghue, Aoife O’Callaghan and Lauren Rintoul. The breakthrough finally came in the 25th minute when a Celtic cross broke out to O’Callaghan who fired home off the butt of the post from outside the box.
Celtic continued to press and looked to be going two up when Fiadhna Tangney let fly but Bateman dived full length to her left to push it way.
The home side needed a second goal and it came from Lauren Rintoul after a good team move. Hannah O’Donoghue got her deserved goal to ensure Celtic’s progression and these were added to with scores from Keelin O’Connor and Ava Looney.
Overall this was a very good Killarney Celtic performance and they will now be looking for a home draw in the last 4.
Moriarty’s Centra 11’s:
There were wins for Park A and Killarney Celtic A in Group 1, Killarney Celtic B in Group 2 and Asdee and Ballyhar in Group 3. 6 teams took part in a blitz style event in Christy Leahy Park. The Park B and C, Camp A and B, Fenit and Killarney Athletic all enjoyed multiple games against each other.
Daly’s Supervalu 13’s:
In the Premier Division Killarney Celtic made it three wins from three as they took all the points away to Listowel Celtic. Brian Kelliher hit a hat trick with Peter O’Sullivan and Darragh Lyne scoring one each in their 5-1 win. Darragh Mackessy replied for Listowel Celtic.
Killorglin and The Park moved to within one win of Celtic with wins over Mastergeeha and Kingdom Boys. Both sides won away with The Park winning the Tralee derby 2-0 over Kingdom Boys. Jr Luinguire and Leon Shambala were the scorers.
Killorglin went to Kilbrean Park and with goals from Dean Collins, Sean Corcoran, Dylan O’Neill, Garroid Hassett, Jack O’Connor and Evan Madden took the three points. Niall O’Connor replied for Mastergeeha.
13 Division 1:
Inter took full advantage of the switch of their game from Listowel to Kenmare to record their 3rd win from their 3 games. Mark Looney was unstoppable getting 4 goals. Boki Nikic, Cian O’Connor, Dion Murphy and Tommy Murphy each scored one each.
Killarney Athletic made it two wins from three as they won 5-2 at Murt Scott Park. Dylan Callaghan and Aaron Flynn scored for Ballyhar but goals from Athletics Tadgh Doolan 2, Danny Cronin, Liam Kelliher and Eoin O’Donnell gave them the points.
With leaders Camp, already on 9 points, not playing Listowel Celtic knew a win won move them onto the same mark. And they duly obliged with an 8-0win over Fenit. Sean McGrath added three to his growing total, Nathan McGrath and Micheal Nolan 2 each Conor Hogan 1 to give them the win.
Killorglin were 4-3 winners at home to Asdee who were unlucky not to take a point. Stephen Doran got 2 and Jack Farrell scored for Asdee but 2 from Jack O’Leary and one each from Jack Evans and Steven Scully saw Killorglin move onto 6 points.
Two goals from Mark Dziedziuch and Mervin Shalemba gave The Park B their first points of the season in a 2-0 win over Killarney Celtic C.
Killarney Plaza 15 Premier:
Killarney Celtic have opened an early lead in this Division and are unbeaten in three thanks to a good win away in Listowel Celtic. Mark Harnett was on fire ending with a hat trick, Michael Potts got 2 and Oran O’Donoghue, David Clifford and Chris O’Donoghue one each to move Killarney Celtic onto 9 points.
And the Hoops will be happy that the Tralee derby between Kingdom Boys and the Park finished 1 all.
A Rian O’Sullivan penalty was cancelled out by a Gearoid Dillane goal for a share of the points. This moves Kingdom Boys into second place on 4 points.
Camp are unbeatable at this early stage of the season and are now 4 from 4 and lead the way on 12 points. They had goals from Jimmy O’Grady, Joe Saunders, Michael Scanlon, Cathal Ferriter and Joe Kennedy.
Ballyhar are one of the chasing sides and moved onto 9 points with their 3rd win from 3. Goals from Dermuid O’Mahoney and Aaron McCarthy gave them the win but they had to come from behind after a Cian Bradley 35 yarder put Castlemaine in front.
Killorglin join them on 9 following their 5-2 win over Killarney Athletic for whom Blake Bolster and Sean Coffey scored.
Killarney Celtic B are now on 7 points after Cian Casey 2, Patrick O’Leary, Lee Dowining, Oran Claffey and Jack Hanrahan were all on the score sheet in the Hoops win over INTER Kenmare.
Listowel Celtic’s Jamie Lynch scored twice and one each from Mike Kirby, Jack Boland and Sean Joy saw the North Kerry Hoops get their campaign up and running.
