North Kerry League Division 2.

Asdee  1-8   Ballyduff   0-8

Played in very windy conditions at Ballyduff on Sunday last two very much understrength teams especially Ballyduff served up a very competitive game of football in Round 2 of the McCarthys Insurance Brokers Senior League Division 2.

In fairness Asdee did have the majority of play and deserved their win as they led from the 3rd minute  but they were never really able to pull away from a dogged Ballyduff and the decisive score of the game came in the 4th minute of the second half when after a great build up by the visitors; wing back Jack Keane was on hand to boot the ball to the net as the score at that stage read 0-5 to 0-4 in favour of Asdee.

Playing with the aid of a tricky wind that more- or less blew diagonally towards the Village goal up stepped Chris White to split the posts after 2 minutes. Wides came a plenty on both sides before Eoin Tydings, Paul O Carroll and Darragh Keane, (2) to leave the visitors 0-3 to 0-1 at the end of the first quarter. So after having the majority of play the home side responded in style with Darragh Goulding who was a thorn in the Asdee rearguard kicking over 3 points to level up matters.

Then with virtually the last kick of the game Kieran Kelly kicked a massive point to see Asdee lead at the break by 0-5 to 0-4. The second half continued to entertain with scores hard to come-by as defences were to prove difficult to get past with Paud O Carroll and Paddy Moran impressing for Ballyduff while Martin Collins, John Doran with goalkeeper Stephen Lynch and Jack Collins both making their debut in senior football all performed very well.

It was nip and tuck and as already stated Jac k Keanes goal in the 4th minute of this half gave the visitors a bit of breathing space; no doubt Ballyduff were never going to give up but were guilty of some poor scoring decisions when presented. Darragh Goulding their top scorer popped over points to bring his tally to 5 points and Padraig Harrington( 1) finished their scoring as in between Paul O Carroll, ( 2) and Eoin Tydings (1) sealed a 4 point victory.

Ballyduff did get a free which was to be the last kick of the game and Darragh Goulding say his powerful shot come off the crossbar as Referee, Dermot Hughes, Listowel Emmets blew the final whistle.
