SENIOR FOOTBALL COUNTY FOOTBALL LEAGUE Div 5 Round 2 2014-03-30 10:39:00

Dr.Crokes 3 11 Renard 0-09 

The score line doesn't tell the true story of this game which was played in Lewis Road, Killarney on Sunday. Renard raced into a four point lead early in this game, with their lively forwards troubling the home defensc. A goal mid-way through the half, by Ruairi Mangan, had the home side back in touch and they ended the half 1-04 to 0-06 ahead. 
Playing with the wind in the second half, Dr. Crokes responded with points from Brian O'Shea and Tony Brosnan, the latter adding a goal which put Dr. Crokes in the lead 2-08 to 0-8 with ten minutes remaining. Try as Renard did, and led by inter-county footballer, Killian Young, the home side finished the day with a late goal from Daniel Healy for a third win in a row.

St Senans 0-16 Ballydonoghue 2-10

Ballydonoghue certainly pulled this one out of the fire at Finnerty Park, Mountcoal, having looked dead and buried at half time, when they trailed by 8 points. The dismissal of a Senan’s player, at the end of the first quarter, had little effect on their overall performance. Half-time score St Senans 0-11, Ballydonughe 0-03.

With a stiff breeze in Ballydonoghu’s favour in the second half, and a few changes in personnel, they began to claw their way back into the game after a few early scores. Approaching the final quarter, the referee was given no option but to produce a straight red to a St. Senans
player for a blatant striking offence. With ten minutes remaining, St. Senans still led by five points, when Ballydonoghue’s Damien O’ Carroll struck for goal. St. Senans replied almost straight way to make it a three point game. With the clock counting down, it looked like St.Senans had done enough. When a short kickout from Senans rebounded off Padraig Lyons and, with the goalie off his line, he took a snap shot for goal that hit of one the Senan’s backs and lobbed over the keeper’s head into the back of the net, to bring the sides level, as the referee blew for full time from the kickout.

St. Senans scorers were: Padraig Quill 0-06, David Foran 0-03, James Barry 0-02, Con O Keeffe, Damian Somers, Alan Kennelly and David Behan 1 point each.
Ballydonoghue: Padraig Lyons, Damian O Carroll, 1-00 each, Paul Kennelly, 0-05, were amongst their scorers.

Sneem/Derrynane 0-16 Kilgarvan 2-10

Played in brilliant sunshine in Sneem, it was Kilgarvan who hit the front with a point in the first minute. Quick points from Denis O’Sullivan and Ian Galvin had the home team ahead, before Kilgarvan hit back with a goal from Patrick O Shea on five minutes. Galvin 0-03 and O’Sullivan 0-01 had Sneem/Derrynane ahead 0-06 to 1-01 after fifteen minutes. Two points for the visitors were cancelled out again by Galvin, to leave it 0-08 to 1-03 after 24 minutes. Points from Morgan O Donoghue and Galvin extended this lead, before Connie Cremin had two points for Kilgarvan, to leave the half time score 0-10 to 1-05 in the home team’s favour.

Kilgarvan had the first point of the second half ,only for the home team to respond with three unanswered points from Morgan O’Donoghue , Ian Galvin and Shane McGillycuddy. Two Kilgarvan points narrowed the gap to 0-13 to 1-08, fifteen minutes in. John Cremin and Morgan O’Donoghue had further points for Sneem/Derrynane. Denis O’Sullivan and Connie Cremin swapped points in the 29th and 30th minute, to leave a goal between the teams.

Duagh 2-09 Valentia 1-08

With a very fresh breeze, Valentia started the stronger and, by the 15th minute, had gone into a 3-02 lead with P. O’Connor and John Shanahan prominent for the Islanders. A little indiscipline by Duagh backs secured two free-ins for Valentia before half time. Both frees were converted to leave the half –time score Duagh 0-02 Valentia 0-05.

Duagh, with the breeze, started the second half in lightning fashion, with point from play from Jason Carmody and Nigel O’Connor, before Tom Scanlon put Duagh in the lead with a well taken goal. Anthony Maher pointed from play for Duagh, before P. O’Connor and John Shanahan again pointed for Valentia. All these scores came in the first six minutes of the second half. A well taken goal for Duagh by Nigel O Connor and a point by Jason Carmody put Duagh in a commanding five point lead with 20 minutes gone. Valentia, however, were not finished and, when wing back Junior Murphy crashed to the Duagh net, there were only two points between the sides. Duagh finished the stronger and scored two further points to leave the final score: Duagh 2-09, Valentia 1-08.

Asdee 1-13 Moyvane 2-09

A 30 metre free from the boot of Mike Breen, deep into injury time, saw the home side edge out Moyvane, in a trilling North Kerry derby, played at Walsh Park Asdee on Saturday evening April 12th. This was a game that had everything, some wonderful passages of football between two evenly matched sides, level on no fewer than seven occasions, 25 scores in all, a black card issued to either side, and a sending off of a Moyvane player, for a double yellow, with ten minutes left to play. Certainly, the game ebbed and flowed throughout and hung in the balance right up to the sound of the final whistle. 

The opening half saw both teams get really stuck in, but defences on both sides were to play a huge part when it came to preventing scores. Eoin Kennedy and Shane Stack were having a great battle,while at the other end, Martin Collins was winning his duel with his direct opponent. It took four minutes before we saw the opening score, which came from Eoin Kennedy, from a tight angle. Ian McCarthy levelled up matters three minutes later. This was to be the trend for the remainder of the half. Eoin Kennedy 0-02 and Eoin Tydings for Asdee, while John Jack Mulvihill 0-02, and D. J. Kennelly had the sides all square on the stroke of the short whistle. However, enter substitute Joe Coulson, who put the visitors in front with an injury time point. Half Time score: Moyvane 0-05 Asdee 0-04. 
Within 30 seconds on resumption, Eoin Tydings had the sides on level terms, followed by similar scores by Charles Dalton and Mike Breen. Timmy Noonan, who was having a solid game, kicked three points in a row, with Darren Russell replying for the home side, as the sides failed to be separated after eleven minutes. Eoin Tydings and Eoin Kennedy kicked Asdee into a two point lead, only for Moyvane, who introduced two substitutes, Kevin Kennelly and Martin Stack who were to play a big part in the game, with both finding the net within three minutes of each other, putting their side four points in front with seven minutes remaining. It looked at this stage, with the home side rattled, as if the visitors would now pull away; but Asdee dug deep and, when Mike Breen rattled the Moyvane net in the 25th minute, the game was up for grabs once again. Kevin Kelly drove forward from defence to split the uprights to tie up the game in the 28th minute and, when the man of the moment Darragh Keane punched over for the lead, it looked done and dusted as we were deep in injury time. There was still more and Timmy Noonan had Moyvane on level terms with a long range point. A draw now looked certainly on the cards, but from the kick out, Asdee moved the ball up-field where a foul was committed and Mike Breen duly obliged with a terrific kick, to give the home side a victory that they just about deserved.

A well-timed first half goal, along with a strong second half performance, saw the visitors take all two points in this County League Round 3 encounter in the J.P. O'Sullivan Park, Killorglin.

A tit-for-tat battle in the opening half saw the home side lead by the minimum at the short whistle, 1-08 to 1-07. 

Jack O'Connor opened the scoring for Laune Rangers in the second minute, before Tuosist replied with two points of their own, including a well taken Mike O'Sullivan free, to swing the lead in their favour, 0-02 to 0-01 in the sixth minute. Jack O'Connor and Westley Delaney replied for Laune Rangers and the lead changed hands once more, 0-03
to 0-02. Tuosist pushed on to score three points, the pick of these being a Mike O'Sullivan effort, after Flor O'Sullivan tore through the Laune Rangers' defence in the 14th minute of the half.

The game's opening goal came in the 17th minute, when Laune Rangers were awarded a penalty. Centre forward Colin O'Dwyer stepped up and slotted the ball into the Tuosist net, to give the home side a 1-04 to 0-05 advantage. Tuosist answered through Thomas Harrington in the 18th minute, before Pa Sheehan and Mike O'Sullivan swapped points in the minutes that followed, to let the game 1-05 to 0-07 in Laune Rangers favour, with twenty minutes of the first half played. Laune Rangers pushed ahead with scores from Shane O'Connor, Colin O'Dwyer and Jack O'Connor to lead by four points in the 25th minute, 1-08 to 0-07. In the final action of the half, Mike O'Sullivan and Johnny Breen linked up well and Breen made no mistake in finding the Laune Rangers net, to close the home side's lead to the minimum at the short whistle. Half-time score: Laune Rangers 1-08 to 1-07 Tuosist.

Tuosist started the second half the stronger, with points from Mike O'Sullivan and Colm Brosnan in the opening two minutes, to swing the lead back in their favour, 1-09 to 1-08.

goal through Johnny Breen in the 16th minute, along with points from Peter O'Shea, Liam O'Shea, Mike O'Sullivan 0-03, and Flor O'Sullivan to secure the points. Full-time score: Laune Rangers 'B' 1-10 , Tuosist 2-15.
