Castleisland Desmonds were the visitors to Direen for the latest round of the Credit Union County League. A stiff breeze backed the Island men in the first half but they never really cashed in on the advantage of the elements as Ryan O’Grady with four points, the impressive Rob Leen and Finbarr Murphy had the home side 0-6 to 0-4 ahead at the short whistle. A Jonathan Lyne goal , following good work from Ryan O’Grady again, was the perfect start to the second half and when Jamie O Sullivan and Finbarr Murphy chipped in with further scores it was looking ominous. But the visitors rallied briefly with three unanswered scores and it took points from Eoghan O Sullivan and Will Shine to steady the ship. The game was put beyond all doubt by a Ryan O’Grady goal , a fact cemented by an emphatic finish from Will Shine, who put the gloss on a 3-14 to 0-7 win.
The Senior Ladies made the long trip north to Clounmacon earlier this morning for their Donal Curtin Round four clash. Short a number of players due to unavailability it didn’t take the North Kerry side long to take control of the game from the and they ran out worthy winners on a comfortable scoreline. To our girls credit they did not drop the heads and kept going to the final whistle. Next up is a home game against Ballymacelligott.
Well done to our Under 10 girls who put on a great display at half time in Sunday Mens County League clash in Direen. They enjoyed their run out and some fine skills were on display.
JUVENILE BOYS UPDATE
The U9 Go Games continued in Currow during the week. Twenty two boys took part in these games which are seen as a gentle introduction to full blown matches in a non competitive environment. It’s great to see the improvement in the teams as the games progress. Well done team and coaches.
