JK Sports 12’s League:
In the Premier division leaders The Park, who are on 20 points, weren’t playing so the battle of second placed Listowel Celtic at home to third in the table Killarney Celtic was the big game. And it was the away Celtic that took the points. Jack Hanrahan put Killarney ahead with Dara O’Donoghue replying for Listowel Celtic. Early in the second half goal-getter supreme Ryan Kelliher ensured a vital 3 points for Killarney Celtic who now move level with Listowel on 16 points and have a game in hand on The Park.
Kingdom Boys are battling hard to remain in touch with the three sides above them and their 5-1 win over Mastergeeha in Kilbrean Park sees them move onto 14 points. Dillon Robinson and Kevin Williams both scored twice with the other goal scored by David O’Connor. Paul O’Shea replied for Mastergeeha.
12’s Division 1:
Killarney Celtic are top of one of the Schoolboys League’s tightest divisions. They are on 24 points with one game left against Inter Kenmare. And Inter Kenmare laid down a marker of their intentions to win this League as they were too good for The Park and move onto 19 points with a game in hand over Celtic. Dillon O’Connor had a great day scoring 4 with the other goals coming from Tom Murnane, Tadgh Siochru and Donal O’Sullivan.
Killorglin finished their campaign with a win over St Bernard’s. Daire Cleary got 2 with Mark O’Connor and Ian McGillicuddy also scoring. They had a very good League campaign and have accumulated 21 points and will be watching with interest how Inter Kenmare get on in their last two games. Sean Holden replied for St Bernard’s.
Camp took the points in the mid table clash with Kingdom Boys thanks to two goals from Adam Butler and Jack Farrell and one from Dara Butler.
Daly’s Supervalu 13’s Division 1:
Castlemaine did what no other team has done this season and that’s take points off division toppers Killorglin. The game ended in a 1-1 draw which saw the leaders lose their unbeaten run of seven games. Darragh O’Sullivan had put Killorglin ahead before Castlemaine’s Dara Evans equalised.
O’Callaghan’s Coaches 14’s League:
Kingdom Boys and Killarney Celtic are locked together at the top of the table and still can’t be separated after 7 games with both on 16 points. However both leaders were pushed all the way by Listowel Celtic and Mastergeeha respectively.
Kingdom Boys Reen O’Sullivan, Sam Tarrant and Ferdia O’Brien all scored in their 3-2 win over Listowel Celtic whose goals came from Cathal Kennelly and Jack Healy.
Killarney Celtic also won 3-2 but they were away in the ‘other’ Killarney derby as they travelled to Mastergeeha. Cian Gammell, Peter McCarthy and Mikey Moynihan were on the mark for Celtic while Ciaran O’Connor and James Nagle were the Kilbrean side’s scorers.
Luke Moynihan, Karl Mullins, Kieran Carmody, Gearoid Savage and Dylan McCarthy all scored one each in The Park’s win over Killarney Athletic.
Division 1 South:
It was a good day for leaders Killorglin A as they stretched their unbeaten run to six games from six at the top of the table as they beat Killarney Celtic B 3-1. Adam Drew scored for Celtic but the goals from Glenn O’Sullivan, Conor Standen and Joe Glinwood gave the leaders another three points.
Their nearest challengers Iveragh United were held to a 4-4 draw in a rip roaring classic. Kevin Price hit a hat trick for Inter Kenmare which was added to by one from Tom Sullivan. Iveragh had four individual scorers – John Murphy, Azim Barhan, Graham O’Sullivan and Mark Quigley.
Division 1 North:
Leaders Ballyhar are another side to lose their unbeaten record going down 4-3 to Killorglin B who move into second place on their own and are now only two points behind the leaders.
Donal O’Sullivan got 2 for the boys from Murt Scott Park with Niall O’Donoghue getting the other goal but goals from Dylan O’Sullivan, William Hickey, Padraig O’Brien and Cormac O’Connor made it a good day for Killorglin.
A 2-2 draw between Camp and Asdee wasn’t really what each side wanted. Both sides are chasing leaders Ballyhar and are a bit behind but the point does narrow the gap. Tadgh O’Connor and Seamus O’Sullivan were the Camp scorers who are now four points off top spot.
Killarney Plaza 15’s Premier:
Listowel Celtic are top of the table here and added the first three points of the week when they played Killarney Celtic under lights in mid week. Darragh Sheehy certainly enjoyed playing on the All Weather and hit 4 with Chris Elbell and Michael Foley getting the others.
Killarney Athletic kept the gap to the leaders to three points when they beat Castleisland 6-2. Mickey Casey had another day to remember getting 5 this time with Gavin White getting the other goal and crucially they have a game in hand over the leaders.
Tralee Trophy World 16’s Premier:
Leaders The Park will be the happiest of the top three sides and they didn’t even kick a ball. They top the table on 18 points from their seven games. Second met third and it ended Killorglin 2-2 Killarney Celtic. Killorglin scorers were Tommy Cahill and aptly Shane McLoughlin who celebrated his Ireland call-up with a goal. His side move to 16 points but have played 9 games.
Killarney Celtic’s two scorers were Darren Doherty and Brian O’Connell. The draw was the first points Celtic have dropped in their 5 games and are now on 13 points but do have games in hand.
Killarney Athletic’s Chris O’Meara and Ayden Mulvanney both scored as their game with Fenit also ended in a 2-2 draw. Ivan Parker and Denis Cosgrove were on the mark for Fenit.
Ballyhar move onto 13 points and into third place after getting a 2-0 results over Iveragh. Mastergeeha, who started the day four points behind leaders Castlemaine will be a little disappointed with their 2-2 draw with Ballyheigue.
