Mixed re­sults in in­ter-league SFAI ac­tion

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - SPORT -

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.
