KERRY PETROLEUM INTERMEDIATE CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP
Our Senior Men advanced to the last four of the Intermediate Club Championship courtesy of a hard fought win over Beaufort. Played in blazing sunshine there was never much in the contest although we did make the stronger start leading 0-4 to 0-1 after 11 minutes. This was due to the accuracy of Finbarr Murphy but the Mid Kerry side tried to make home advantage count closing it to 0-7 to 0-6 by half time. The second half was an even tighter affair as the ante was upped and the sides were deadlocked at 10-10 with ten minutes to go. But Eoghan O Sullivan, Cian Gammell and substitute Jamie O Sullivan struck for three vital points as the rock solid defence held firm in the closing moments. Milltown Castlemaine provide the opposition in the semi final and will no doubt prove to be obdurate opponents.
JUVENILE BOYS UPDATE
Our Legion U12 White team took on Glenflesk on Tuesday evening in a competitive match, which saw our opposition ahead for a good part of the game. With Glenflesk holding a lead, our players battled hard and put in a solid hours work that saw us briefly take the lead in the third quarter. Overall happy with the performance and effort level put in across the team but further work required. Thanks to everyone who assisted on the night- players, coaches, match officials, parents.
Our U16 Ladies played their opening East Kerry game of the campaign with another epic game with Glenflesk. The 17 who took part put on a heroic performance. Down 5 pts at half time and 9pts mid way through the half, they turned it around superbly to get back level. Unfortunately, though, Glenflesk kicked over a late free to win by the bare minimum. Down a number of regulars tonight, the girls did brilliantly and can be very proud of themselves. Final score Glenflesk 6-07 Legion 6-06.
