NORTH KERRY INTERMEDIATE: The Junior team had an excellent win against Listowel in the semi final which was played in Knocknagoshel on Sunday.
Desmond’s had a dream start with a Graham O Connor goal in the 2nd minute quickly followed by a pointed free from Tommy Walsh. They had an advantage in physicality but their movement for each other; their capacity to move the ball quickly and accurately and ability to take their chances proved decisive. Listowel closed the gap but points from Sean Lynch and another goal from Tadhg Walsh gave them a 2-8 to 0-6 advantage at the break. Two goals from Listowel in the 3rd quarter narrowed the gap to 4 but Desmond’s scored the final 6 points to run out deserved winners.
It was overall, a team performance and they can look forward to the final with quiet confidence
