Keel 0-14 Dromid 1-10


Keel played Dromid at home on Saturday evening in Round 10 of the County League with both teams looking for the valuable two points on offer to take a step closer to survival in Division 3.
Dromid started the brighter with Thomas Curran scoring two points before Keel replied through Gary Sayers and Aaron Murphy, scoring three points to give them the lead in the first quarter. The second quarter saw Keel push on with five further points, three coming from play and two from frees. As the half-time whistle approached, Dromid’s Donal J O'Sullivan added a further two points before the half time whistle. Half time score: Keel 0-08, Dromid 0-05.
The start of the second half saw Keel’s Gary Sayers and Liam O'Shea add two more points to leave Keel in the driving seat. Dromid weren't about to give up when they settled and started to get control of the ball. Aidan O'Connor scored a point and Thomas Curran with a penalty closed the gap to a minimum. Further points from Liam O'Shea and Gary Sayers extended Keel's lead to three but Dromids Micheal Sheehan, Denis O'Sullivan & Gearoid Sullivan helped to get the visitors back level, but Keel’s Sayers brothers added two more points to the scoring and a final point from Dylan Donoghue wasn't enough when Keel held out for the two valuable points.


Lispole 0-13 Annascaul 1-10


Lispole and Annascaul played each other to a draw in a keenly contested match in which both sides had a man shown the line. Home team Lios Póil was quickest off the mark courtesy of a Colm Ó Muirthile point. Annascaul, through a Shane Foley point, were soon level and then commenced to settle into the match. Further points from Jason Hickson and Emmet Kennedy ensured that the visitors held a narrow one point lead at the end of the first quarter 0-5 to 0-4. From this point until the 27th minute both sides were level on two occasions as Colm Ó Muirthil through pointed frees kept Lispole in touch. Than with half time coming Aiden Creane scored a goal to leave his side with a three point advantage over Lispole. A further point from Jason Hickson extended the margin to four, before Deagláin Ó Súilleabháin brought it back to three just before the half time whistle sounded. Half time score: Lispole 0-6, Annascaul 1-6
It took Lispole only ten minutes to level matters and go into a dangerous one point lead. Deagláin Ó Súilleabháin started them off and Tomás Ó Caomhánaigh put them in front. However Annascaul, with an in form Jason Hickson who finished the day with 6 points, soon had them level once more. Lispole through Tomás Ó Caomhánaigh and Deagláin Ó Súilleabháin, than took a two point lead, which they held with 5 minutes before full time. This was despite the best efforts of Emmet Kennedy and Jason Hisckson, who scored a further two points in a row to ensure the spoils were divided. Lispole 0-13 Annascaul 1-10
Scartaglin 2-5 vs St.Mary’s 0-12
An evenly contested match played in Scart made for a good match to watch with both sides matching each other point for point in the 1st half, but St.Mary’s took a one point advantage into the 2nd half. 1st half score was Scartaglin 1-4 to St.Mary’s 0-8. 
The 2nd half was more of the same with St.Marys just able to keep onto the lead after some fine work from St.Mary’s keeper Austin Constable denied a few very good Scart chances. In the end, St.Mary’s held onto the lead for the win after a very evenly contested match. Scart Scorers Mike Coakley 0-1, Denis Lenihan 0-2, Niall Casey 1-0, Pa Rahilly 0-1, Tom Boyle 0-1 and Sean Tagney 1-0. 
St.Mary’s scorers Daniel Sullivan 0-1, Daniel Daly 0-1, Sean Cournane 0-3, Ger Shea 0-3, Jack Daly 0-2, Kieran Driscoll 0-1 and Niall Driscoll 0-1.



Glenflesk 0-14 Ardfert 0-14

Played in wet and slippy conditions this was a tight and hard-fought game throughout. With both sides still in contention for promotion it wasn’t surprising every ball was keenly contested. 
The first-half was a tit-for-tat affair with never more than a point between the sides. Ardfert opened the scoring through Darren Dineen, before Glenflesk replied with points from Darragh Roche and Jeff O’Donoghue. Ardfert restored their lead with points from John Egan and the impressive Damien Wallace, before Darragh Roche levelled for Glenflesk once again. Ardfert then hit the front once again with a pointed free from Kevin Shanahan, before Jeff O’Donoghue levelled for Glenflesk once again; landing a fantastic long-range point from outside the 45 year line, in the sixteenth minute. The sides exchanged two more points and went in level at 7 points apiece at half-time. 
Half-time score: Glenflesk 0-7 Ardfert 0-7
The early stages of the second-half were tough and uncompromising and the first score didn’t come until the ninth minute of the half, a pointed free from the boot of Damien Wallace. Ardfert started to dominate possession and Wallace went on to add three more points to give Ardfert a four-point lead by the mid-point of the half. At this stage it looked like the game might have swung decisively in Ardfert’s favour. However, Glenflesk stuck resolutely to the task, and came back again with four unanswered points of their own through Cian Horan, Dara Roche (free), Lee O’Donoghue (free) and Shane Dennehy, to tie the game at 0-11 apiece. Niall Clifford gave Ardfert the lead again in the 24th minute only for David O’Donoghue to equalise again with a fisted effort following a nice Glenflesk move. With the clock winding Ardfert hit the front again opening up a two point advantage, through John Dowling and Damien Wallace (free, 28 mins), but Glenflesk were not to be beaten, and a pointed free by Lee O’Donoghue followed by a fine Kieran Murphy point in the 31st minute after a frantic spell of Glenflesk pressure in front of the Ardfert goal saw the game end in a draw. 
Ardfert might be slightly more disappointed not to have taken both points, but a draw was a fair result.
