Kerry star Geaney lines out for Corca Dhuib­hne

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - SPORT -


Corca Dhuib­hne 5 Tralee 12

TRALEE played with the aid of the Bal­ly­david pitch’s fa­mous hill in the first half and they cer­tainly made the fall of ground count with two tries from the ex­cel­lent Martin Stack, one of which was con­verted by Ben O’Neill to take a 12-0 lead in at the half-time break.

The weather con­di­tions were ideal for run­ning rugby and Kerry se­nior foot­baller Paul Geaney showed his prow­ess with the oval ball when he made sev­eral dart­ing runs into the heart of the Tralee de­fence from the full-back po­si­tion.

Corca Dhuib­hne con­tin­ued to pres­surise Tralee in the sec­ond pe­riod, but de­spite ex­cel­lent per­for­mances from Geaney, Nathan Flan­nery and Brian Mur­phy,all they could man­age was an Alan Devine try with 10 min­utes left to go in the game.

Tralee’s de­fence weath­ered the storm and came away with the points.

Dou­glas Car­ri­ga­line 5 Kil­lor­glin 50

KIL­LOR­GLIN were very im­pres­sive win­ners away to Dou­glas Car­ri­ga­line last Sun­day.

They started with great in­ten­sity and Tiar­nan Clif­ford made a mas­sive tackle to push Dou­glas/Car­ri­ga­line deep into their own 22. An ef­fec­tive line out and a great drive from Cap­tain Tony Lynch saw him get over the line for the games first try.

The sec­ond try for Kil­lor­glin came soon after­wards – full-back Dave Cof­fey had a good run up the right wing and found the speedy Tiar­nan Clif­ford who crashed over for their sec­ond try.

From the restart Kil­lor­glin’s Rodi Healy found Neil O’Shea and he touched down the games third try. It wasn’t long be­fore Kil­lor­glin got their bonus point try. From a good scrum John Michael Cronin O’Reilly broke through the line and got the ball to Cathal Doyle who drove over Kil­lor­glin’s fourth try of the game.

Be­fore half-time Dou­glas man­aged to get back a try of their own that they failed to con­vert.

The sec­ond half saw four more tries for Kil­lor­glin, three from Cathal Doyle and the last one from Tiar­nan Clif­ford.

Luke O’Shea con­verted five of the eight tries.
