A good for our Senior B team as they accounted for Laune Rangers in the first round of the Molyneaux Cup. Trailing from the off and soon rediced to fourteen men a renewed and battling second half showing saw them victorious on a 0-15 to 0-8 scoreline. On a crisp September evening i t was a satisfying win for both team & management. Notable too for the return of K.J. Griffin back between the posts and keeping a clean sheet.
Our two teams played in the final round of the East Kerry League on Sunday morningat home against Keel/Listry. The Division 1 game was a close and exciting match between the two teams with the lead exchanging hands numerous times throughout the game. In the end, a draw was a fair result. A very strong Keel/Listry was too good for our boys in the the Division 5 game. Thanks to Keel/Listry for a great morning of football and also to Evan Horan, who did a great job as referee as always.
Having had a dramatic and deserved win over Castleisland Desmonds in the earlier round hopes were high as our U17 Boys headed to Ballymacelligot to face the natives in the Minor Club Championship semi final. However the home team proved to strong and eventually ran out 5-9 to 1-9winners. We wish them well in the final.
Our Senior ladies made a trip to North Kerry last Sunday morning where they faced Ballyduff in the Junior B championship. Knowing a win would cement a home quarter final, the ladies went about their task with gusto , working some fine team scores and leading 1-11 to 0-1 at the interval. The second half saw lots of positional and personnel changes, but the Legion ladies kept the scoreboard ticking over. In a one sided contest the Ballyduff ladies to their credit kept going to the very end. Highlight of the game was the scoring feats of Ellen Coffey who plundered 3-2.
