The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - SPORT -


Ev­ery East Kerry for­ward played a big part in this vic­tory. David Clif­ford car­ries a huge threat ev­ery time he gets on the ball and Kevin McCarthy did a lot of self­less word, but it’s hard to look past their top scorer DARA ROCHE who scored 2-2 from play


So many twists and turns in a game that pro­duced eight goals and some ex­cel­lent points, but East Kerry’s third goal was a real game changer. Trail­ing by just a point six min­utes in to the sec­ond half Din­gle had ev­ery rea­son to feel con­fi­dent of match­ing East Kerry stride for stride but then Dara Moyni­han’s clever and ici­sive pass found Evan Cronin who turned in­side his man and tucked away a smart goal. That put East Kerry four ahead and then put on the af­ter-burn­ers from there, scor­ing an­other 3-8 be­fore the end.


As the first of a Fitzger­ald Sta­dium dou­ble-header there were noises af­ter this per­for­mance that East Kerry could be cham­pi­ons in wait­ing. When Dr Crokes lost in the sec­ond game those noises sim­ply grew louder
