SENIOR MEN FIXTURES
DYLAN CROWLEY TOURNAMENT
The annual Dylan Crowley U11 football tournament took place last Saturday in Gneeveguilla. Always well organised everyone should be extremely proud of their efforts in providing a superb day of sport and fun in Dylans memory. Our U11 Boys played in Division 1 alongside Rathmore, Glenflesk, and Firies.Our opening game was against Firies, and we prevailed in a closely contested game. Up next was a very strong Rathmore side who led from the start and never looked back and topped the group, making it straight to the final. Legion required a result against Glenflesk to progress to the semi-final, and both teams played out a draw . As a result, both Glenflesk and Legion had to play again in the semi final This time round in heavy thunder showers, Legion progressed to the final where Rathmore was waiting . Both teams, to their credit, served up a great game of football with Rathmore just shading it in the end and winning the Division 1 Final.
MOTHERS AND OTHERS
Our Mothers and Others were in Mallow last Saturday to take part in a superbly run blitz with over 70 teams taking part. They battled through the thunderstorms and heavy showers that prevailed on the day and went through the entire day unbeaten. And in keeping with the spirit of the Mothers and Others ethos they thoroughly enjoyed the social side of the event.The last sighting of them was somewhere in the vicinity of Mallow, and it was a long road home with great fun every bit of the way.
LADIES FOOTBALL UPDATE
The Legion U-12 Green team travelled on Beaufort in the opening match of their U-12 County League. In muggy conditions the girls put in a solid performance against a good Beaufort side. Although not enough to turn the Beaufort tide, from a Legion perspective there were good individual performances with some nice scores taken.
A good week for all Kerry teams with the Minor Boys and both Senior Ladies and Mens teams having progressive wins. The Minors face Monaghan in the All Ireland semi final this weekend coming while both Senior teams are back in action on the first weekend in July.
