Mid-Kerry 2-09 – Killarney Legion 2-13
Legion travelled to Killorglin expecting a tough encounter from favourites Mid-Kerry and that’s exactly what they got. Stunned with two goals in the opening minutes Legion had it all to do midway through the half chasing a 2-02 to 0-02 lead. To their credit through the midfield pairing of Jack O’Neill and Billy Maguire they steadied themselves and overturned the deficit by half time going in with a lead of 2-3 to 2-08 with goals coming from in-form Conor Keane and James O’ Donoghue and two cracking long-range points from the boot of Jamie O’ Sullivan. Legion continued to extend their lead 2-06 to 2-13 with some well taken frees and excellent work by Aidan Slattery, Legion looked to be well on the way into the next round. Mid-Kerry for their part continued to push hard but couldn’t crack a stubborn Legion defence who held out for the final whistle. Legion will be well happy with this team performance as were the many supporters who travelled on the day.
