Mixed results in inter-league SFAI action
IT was a busy weekend in the SFAI Subway Inter-League competitions. Kerry hosted North Tipperary in the first round of the U-12s in Mounthawk Park. In a tight encounter it was the visitors that just took the win 2-1. Shayne Stack got the Kerry goal. Both Leagues also had a Development squad on duty with the sides drawing 0-0.
The U-13s travelled to UL to take on Limerick District in very tough conditions. The home side led 2-1 at half time with JJ Olitijan getting the Kerry goal. They pressed hard for an equaliser but were caught in the last minute when Limerick got their third. Dara Foley made a great save from a Limerick penalty but their attacker was quickest to react.
Kerry were well in the game for long periods and will take lots of positives as they go into the Plate section of the competition.
Mint O’Connor scored twice for the Development squad but they went down 4-2 in the worst of the weather.
The U-16 opened their competition with a good 1-1 draw away to Limerick Desmond. Kerry will be a little disappointed as they had a number of chances to add to Kian Brosnan’s goal. But they were caught with an equaliser five minutes from time.
