East Kerry got off to a dream start and built an unassailable lead in the first half when they played a Austin Stacks in Fossa in round 3 of the Co Minor Championship, sponsored by Keanes SuperValu, Killorglin last Friday. Three points from play followed by two goals in quick succession gave the home side a 2-03 to nil lead after fifteen minutes. Captain Padraig De Brún set up and scored the first goal in a well worked move. The second goal came from the boot of Rob Leane in a move started in defence. Austin Stacks showed great determination and dominated the middle area but the East Kerry defence were very strong and their goal keeper Conor McCarthy made 2 great saves which held the visitors to 2 points whilst notching up six over the next ten minutes. An East Kerry shot off the post was quickly cleared and defence turned to attack, with a surging run up the field and precision pass to Jesse O'Sullivan who netted the ball for an Austin Stacks goal. A scatter of points left the half time score: East Kerry 2-11 Austin Stacks 1-03

Both sides brought on fresh legs during the second half. Austin Stacks scored 2 points before Shane Courtney intercepted the ball and soloed upfield in a move that ended with Shane pouncing on a rebound and finding the back of the net for the third East Kerry goal. The Austin Stacks goal keeper Claudio Dema made a number of great saves in both halves but excellent precision foot passing by East Kerry who moved the ball quickly, led to 2 further goals in the last ten minutes, David Clifford from a pass by Paudie Clifford and Paudie with an unstoppable shot on the twenty fifth minute. A point a piece in the dying minutes left the final score: East Kerry 5-14 Austin Stacks 1-10. East Kerry are through to the quarter finals.

Mid Kerry 1-09 Kerins O’Rahillys 2-05

Mid Kerry saw off a late surge by Strand Road to advance to the quarter final stages of the Keanes Supervalu Minor Football Championship in Killorglin on Friday evening.. 
The visitors started off the better side when their captain Ryan Clarke slotted the ball over the bar in the second minute and a minute later his team mate Gearoid Savage saw his goal chance denied. Mid Kerry were taking that bit longer to settle with some sluggish passing & several wides but what one captain can do so can the other; Eoin O’Brien Mid Kerry managed to raise the white flag with a lovely point. Eleven minutes in to this half a Gearoid Savage shot for the visitors hit the back of the net bringing their side a goal to the good which happened to be their last score of the half. The Home side responded with 2 points from Niall O’Connor and Jonathan O’Sullivan and they drew the game when John Tyther rose the white flag. Well into injury time Mid Kerry’s Captain Eoin O’Brien added another to his tally when he slotted over the bar.
Half time score: Mid Kerry 0-05; Kerins O’Rahillys 1-01.
It was again the visitors who started stronger in the second half with a lovely point from Dylan Ronan to level matters. To keep their lead Jonathan O’Sullivan made no mistake with his 2 frees however one of these scores was cancelled out by a Diarmuid Sullivan point for Rahillys. At the three quarter stage, Tommy Cahill saw his shot sail over the bar and substitute Caolim Teahan was a happy camper when he rose the white flag to put 3 between the sides. When it looked like going all Mid Kerry’s way with 3 minutes to go in normal time, Kerins O’Rahillys were thrown a life line in the form of a penalty which Ryan Carroll converted. It was anyone’s game and looked like going to extra time but never say never Capt Ryan Carroll rose the white flag to put Strand Road in the lead. With the game nearly up Mid Kerry had to get a goal and they did just that when their first shot was saved but the rebound fell to Daniel MacBeth and he duly hit the back of John Shortt’s net. Not a team to lie down, the visitors tried their best to get something out of this game and again it fell to the Captain Ryan Carroll who rose the white flag once more to put one between the sides but Mid Kerry held out.
