COUNTY LEAGUE The Asdee v Duagh Credit Union County League Division 5 game due to take place at Walsh Park on Saturday evening last has been posponed until Sunday August 30th by agreement of the County Board and both clubs.
North Kerry Minor League Bally/Asdee 5-13 Knock/Brosna 4-13
Bally/Asdee qualified for the Division 2 North Kerry Minor final by virtue of a 3pt winning margin over a well drilled Knock/Brosna side playing at home who looked in real trouble at the interval when trailing 4-8 to 0-5 but they turned in a super second half performance to almost pull off victory.
Bally/Asdee playing with the aid of the wind were completely on top in the opening half. Dara Keane opened the scoring with a point in the first minute as the visitors set about building a sizeable lead, Michael Lynch got the first of their goals in the 15th minute while Ciaran O’Connor continued his good form with a hat trick of goals in the 19th 21th and 23rd minutes to build up an 15pt interval lead. Ciaran O’Connor opened the scoring with a point in the first minute of the second half for the visitors however for the next quarter it was all Knock/Brosna adding 2 goals and a number of points to reduce the deficit to three points. The remaining quarter was an exciting affair with points exchanged but Bally/Asde got in for their 5th goal before Dara O’Connell palmed the ball to the net for the home side for the last score of the match. If Beale can defeat Knock/Brosna in their final game then there will be a 3 way tie for the remaining final position. A win for Knock/Brosna will guarantee a place in the decider.
