Munster Senior Hurling League: Kerry 0-8 Waterford 0-17 2016-01-23 19:30:00


Munster Senior Hurling League
Kerry 0-8 Waterford 0-17

A strong Waterford side defeated Kerry by nine points in a game that was played in rainy conditions at Killarney’s Fitzgerald Stadium this afternoon. Kerry, despite giving away too many frees, coped well in defence with the Waterford attack but it was up front where Kerry struggled despite getting a fair share of possession. All but one of Kerry’s scores came from placed balls as the attack struggled with a packed defence.

Waterford dominated the early exchanges, had three points from frees by Maurice Shanahan, then scored four from play before Kerry opened their account with a Shane Nolan pointed free in the 27th minute. Nolan added two more frees either side of another free from Shanahan and Austin Gleeson and Shanahan again from a placed ball had the winners 10 points to 2 ahead at the break.

Shanahan with two points from placed balls, the second a penalty increased Waterford’s lead and they led by 15 points to 4 after 50 minutes, Philip Lucid getting the Kerry point from a free. Kerry did enjoy more of the possession as the half wore on but as already stated, they struggled to score from play when in sight of the posts. Lucid converted three more frees before Jack Goulding got Kerry’s only score from play 65 minutes in when he hand-passed over the bar. Waterford finished in style with two points from Patrick Curran and Colin Dunford and uniquely, they finished with the same fifteen that started. A feature of the second half was some outstanding saves by Kerry goalkeeper Martin Stackpoole.

The two sides meet again tomorrow morning in the John Mitchel’s complex in Tralee at 10am in a challenge game when extended panel members will get a run out.

Scorers:
Kerry: Shane Nolan 0-3 frees, Philip Lucid 0-4 (Frees), Jack Goulding 0-1. Waterford: Maurice Shanahan 0-8 (0-7 frees), Colin Dunford 0-3, Patk Curran and Austin Gleeson 0-2 each, Michael Walsh 0-1.
Kerry made 4 changes to the starting fifteen with Martin Stackpoole coming in for Aidan McCabe, Darren Dineen for Dougie Fitzell, John Griffin for James O’Connor and Pa Kelly for Brendan O’Leary.
Subs introduced: Philip Lucid, Mikey Boyle, Brendan O’Leary, James O’Connor and Jack Goulding.

Munster Senior Hurling League
Clare 2-27 Kerry 0-8
After encouraging displays against both Limerick and Cork in their opening games in the competition, Kerry fell to a big defeat at the hands of Clare in this Munster SHL game at Sixmilebridge last evening. Kerry, who made three changes to their starting 15 – Brendan Brosnan, Mike Milner and Mikey Boyle replaced Thomas Casey, Paudie O’Connor and John Buckley – got off to the worst possible start and were 1-10 to no score adrift before they finally opened their account in the 21st minute. At the break it was 1-16 to 0-3 to the homeside.
Kerry introduced Paudie O’Connor and John Buckley on the resumption, and afterwards Sean Maunsell and Ger Stackpoole, but though they did come to life during the third quarter with Colm Harty and Jordan Conway pointing twice each, Clare took over once more and hit a second 1-10 in the game without reply in the final quarter to run out easy winners.
Scorers: Kerry: Colm Harty and Jordan Conway 0-2 each, Brendan O’Leary, Mikey Boyle and John Buckley 0-1 each.
Kerry have play Waterford in their final game in the competition on the weekend of January 24th in Fitzgerald Stadium and this game is likely to be played on the Saturday with the agreement of both sides.

Munster Senior Hurling League – Round 2
Kerry 0-18 Cork 1-20

Kerry, who sterted without John Griffin and Thomas Casey from their starting 15 (replaced by Paudie O’Connor and Darren Dineen) put up a tremendous performance before going under to Cork in the Munster Senior Hurling League game played at the Mallow GAA Grounds today (the game was switched from Fitzgerald Stadium on Friday) before an attendance of 750. Cork got off to the better start with Luke O’Farrell gaoling and the Rebels led by 1-5 to 0-1 after just ten minutes.

However the Kerry management team switched Paudie O’Connor back as an extra defender and brought Micheal O’Leary to midfield and this move saw the Kingdom match their opponents for a lot of the remainder of the game. It was 1-11 to 0-9 at the break with Shane Nolan pointing 4 frees and Micheal O’Leary helping himself to a brace.

50 minutes in, and with the score standing at 1-18 to 0-16, Kerry were awarded a penalty following a foul on sub Mikey Boyle but the Cork Keeper was equal to Shane Nolan’s well struck shot and though they battled to the end, that five point gap proved too much to haul back in the remaining time..

Kerry’s next game in the competition is on Wednesday evening under lights in Sixmilebridge when they take on Clare at 7:30pm.

Munster Senior Hurling League
Limerick 2-23 Kerry 0-18

An understrength Kerry side that featured just seven of the starting fifteen from the Christy Ring Final, had to give best to Limerick at the Gaelic Grounds in Round 1 of the Munster Senior Hurling League on Sunday. Team manager, Ciaran Carey will not however be too displeased with the performance of a largely experimental side who battled against the odds right to the end.
Limerick were quickly into their stride and led by 5 points to 2 after just eight minutes with Shane Nolan and Philip Lucid pointing for the visitors. By the 20th minute the winners led by 1-9 to 0-4, the Kerry points coming from John Griffin and Michael O’Leary and at the break it was 1-14 to 0-5 with Nolan getting his second for Kerry who were thankful for some fine reflexes by goalkeeper Aidan McCabe.
Jordan Conway and Jason Diggins joined the fray for the second half and points from John Griffin, Shane Nolan (2) and Paudie O’Connor left the score 1-18 to 0-9 by the 45th minute. Limerick also continued to pick off the points and added a goal for good measure, but Kerry responded with further points from John Griffin, Shane Nolan and sub. Mike Milner to trail by 2-22 to 0-12 by the 55th minute. Shane Nolan added 3 points from placed balls and one from play and the O’Learys, Michael and Brendan added a brace to leave Kerry 11 points adrift at the final whistle.
Round 2 sees Kerry play Cork in Killarney’s Fitzgerald Stadium on Sunday next (12:45) a game that is the first part of a double bill that will also see Kerry footballers in McGrath Cup action against Clare at 2:30pm.
