ASDEE G A A
Darren Russell scored a fine point in the 7th minute before Michael Breen made the scores 1-04 to 0-01 sixty seconds later. Sneem/Derrynane eventually hit a purple patch with former Kerry minor and U21 star Ian Galvin scoring points in the 11,12 and 14 minutes. The game was then interrupted by an injury to corner forward Paul O’ Carroll before eventually getting back underway. Further Sneem scores on the 21 and 31st came before a late Michael Breen free which sent Asdee leading by two points at half-time 1-05 to 0-06.
The second half was a lower scoring, physical affair and it took ten minutes to get the half opening score, coming from a free from Michael Breen. Ian Galvin quickly responded with a score before a great Eoin Tydings point on 16 minutes helped Asdee steady the ship. There was a lot of scrappy play in the second half with both sides missing chances. Sneem/ Derrynanes Mike White was sent off for a straight red for a striking offence with four minutes to go before Asdee closed the game out with a free from Michael Breen before Michael Tydings scored the winning point in the 32nd minute.
Ballydonoghue 3-15 Duagh 2-5. Ballydonoghue who are level on points with their South Kerry rivals Renard going in to the final round of games so it’s the winner takes all for promotion .This game was played in Duagh but it was a much sharper Ballydonoghue side inspired by a superb performance from Martin O Mahony at midfield and Kieran Lynch at wing forward who inspired their side to victory
