Mastergeeha 0-7 Listowel Celtic

Listowel Celtic took on a gallant Mastergeeha side in the Foundation Sports 14’s Cup final at Mounthawk Park and the North Kerry girls showed all their experience and skills to kills off the game early on. But credit to Mastergeeha they never gave up and Kayleigh O’Connor almost got a consolation goal for them in the second half when she beat two defenders but Listowel Celtic keeper Mary Bates made a good save.

But the credit must go to Listowel Celtic who opened the scoring when Player of the Match Aoife Horgan netted the first of her three goals. Celtic never gave Mastergeeha time to settle and Horgan and Caoimhe Spillane added two quick goals. They were also always dangerous from set pieces and corners and Zara Doherty and Cliona Pierse made it 5-0 at the break. Jade Harkin and Aoife Horgan wrapped up the win in the second half.

Tralee Trophy World 16’s Cup Final:

Killarney Athletic 1-2 Killarney Celtic:

This was a cracking game with nothing between the sides and the excellent pitch in Kilbrean Park Mastergeeha helped with to ensure that good football was played. Both keepers, Celtic’s Edel Harnett and Athletics Ciara Faulds were called into action early to keep the game scoreless. Kate Murphy and Ciara Randles were causing the Athletic defence trouble and the duo combined with Kate Stack to set up Anna Clifford for the first goal.

However the likes of Fiona Galvin and Rachel McCarthy were very strong at the back while Ellen Coffey, Jade Potts and Katie Faulds were making sure Athletic were always dangerous and in the second half a good team move saw Ciara Tagney equalise.

Both sides were now going for it to the delight of the big crowd and it was Celtic that got the winner with 10 minutes to go when Kate Murphy reacted quickest in the box to win the Cup for the Hoops.
