Our Senior Men lost their 100% record in the County League but not their unbeaten record as they drew with local rivals Dr Crokes in sunny Direen on Sunday. The visitors made full use of the breeze in the opening half running into a 0-10 to 0-6 half time lead, cousins Ryan O Grady, Peter McCarthy and Finbarr Murphy sharing the first half scoring load. With the wind to their backs a visible improvement could be seen in the second half with a Ryan O’Grady goal putting them 1-8 to 0-10 to the good. Dr Crokes responded well though, a Kieran O Donoghue black card dovetailing with this period, and they pushed two clear again. But the pendulum swung again as Dr Crokes were reduced to fourteen men coinciding with our return to the full compliment. Points from Jamie O Sullivan, Ryan O’Grady and crucially Darragh Lyne saw the game end in a share of the spoils.
William Shine was the star turn in Kerry’s hard fought win over Clare in the Munster U20 Football semi final played in Austin Stack Park last Monday. Operating in the full forward line he chipped in with ten points, half from play, and Tomas O Ses side now head to Pairc Ui Chaoimh to face old foes Cork in the final which takes place on Monday April 24th. Not the only connection to the team , Darragh Fleming picked up an untimely injury when pushing for a starting berth, Brian Kelly is the goalkeeping coach while former Senior team trainer Pat Flanagan has them in peak shape.
KERRY U14 LADIES
JUVENILE BOYS UPDATE
The U14 girls were in round 4 action of the County League on Sunday with Na Gaeil visitors to a sunny Direen.The home side got straight down to business and opened the scoring with a green flag from the throw in. Both sides made good use of the open spaces and the visitors registered some nice points with good inside forward play. The Legion girls were just that bit more clinical than their opponents and ran out comfortable winners in the end.
PRIMARY SCHOOL GAME
