COUNTY LEAGUE. Asdee 1-14 Tuosist 2-14.
At the end of a most entertaining and well contested game that was level on no fewer than seven occasion played at Walsh Park on Sunday last it was the
visitors who pulled through in the end. I suppose the crucial score of
the game came in the 15th minute of the second half; with only a point
separating the sides and after Asdee keeper James Kelly making a
tremendous save it rebounded out into the path of the inrushing Tom O
Sullivan who boxed the ball to the net. This gave Tuosist the lift
they needed and with better fitness levels they held on despite some
great efforts by the home side. Inside the opening minute Asdee with
a neat point from Paul O Carroll hit the front.
This was to set the tone for the remainder of this half as play ebbed and flowed with some excellent scores and outstanding passages of play that saw the teams
on level terms six times. Sharpshooter Mike Tim O Sullivan scorer of 7
points overall from play and frees was on target 5 times in this half
with Liam O Shea notching 2pts from open play. Darragh Keane with 1,
Eoin Tydings (3) and Mike Breen on target for Asdee and at the break
it was 7pts all. On resumption Darragh Keane kicked Asdee in front
once again but by the 9th minute Tuosist forged ahead with points from
Liam O Shea, Flor O Sullivan and Mike Tim O Sullivan. That deficit was
cut to the minimum when Paul O Carroll and John Doran slotted over in
the 14th minute.
However as already stated then came the first goal of the game when Tom O Sullivan netted. This seemed to knock the steam out of the home side and with Flor O Sullivan now dominating the game they were able to keep their noses in front; points were exchanged by Darragh Keane, (2), and Mike Breen while Mike Tim O Sullivan, Tom O
Sullivan and Colm Brosnan replied for the visitors and after 26mts
Tuosist held a 4th point advantage; 1-14 to Asdees 0-13. Whatever
chance Asdee had of saving the game was finished when Colm Brosnan
crashed the ball to the net with just 3mts left for play. A last grasp
attack by Asdee resulted in a penalty been awarded when Sean Keane was
pulled down and from the resultant penalty Darragh Keane finished to
the net at the second attempt. The latter named player did kick over
but it was too little too late to save the game.

MINORS. O Sullivan
Park. Finuge on Sunday morning last was the venue for a play-off in
Division 2 of the North Kerry Football League for a place in the final
between Asdee/Bally and Castleisland Desmonds. When these sides met
previously in the League they couldn’t be separated and another royal
battle was expected; however on this occasion it was the Castleisland
boys with 3 rapid fire second half goals who were well clear at the
sound of Tom O Sullivans final whistle. Asdee/Bally 2-11 Castleisland
UNDER 16s. Asdee/Bally Under 16s footballers put up a very creditable
showing against a highly rated Ballydonoghue side in Round 5 of the
Lee Strand County Football League and the final scoreline definitely
doesn’t do justice to a game Asdee/Bally side who never threw in the
towel and even though 11 points separated the sides at the final
whistle the combination side can be proud of their showing. Final
Score; Ballydonoghue 6-13 Asdee/Bally 4-8.
UNDER 11s Asdee/Bally 5-3 St. Senans 4-6. Asdee/Bally travelled to
Finnerty Park Mountcoal on Sunday morning last to take on St. Senans
and despite missing a number of regulars played exceptionally well to
force a draw despite been in arrears by 3pts at half time. However on
the downside it is very dissappointing that a number of players failed
to show up as the game had to be played at 8-a-side; so all parents
are requested to make sure that the players attend training on every
Tuesday evening at Walsh Park. This is the future of our clubs and in
fairness to the North Kerry Coiste Na nOg this competition was
organized to help players get ready for Under 12 competitions and

Na nOg in North Kerry.
Asdee/Bally. Liam Hanrahan, Jack Hannon, Dara Healy, 1pt, Patrick
Mulvihill, 3gls, Oisin Healy, 2-2, Eamon O Connor, John Collins, Moira
