East Kerry Championships
The draw took place last Thursday night and in the first round of this year’s O’Donoghue Cup senior championship Spa will be away to the winners of Cordal v Glenflesk. In the first round of the O’Sullivan Cup junior championships Spa are away to Dr Crokes.
Our second u14 girls game of the season against St Pats Blennerville away. We travelled to Blennerville for a 10-a-side game, played under awful conditions of high winds and rain. Spa struggled to grips with the horrible conditions. They never gave up and represented the club well. Every girl gave it their all, with particular praise to Isabel Waters and Aoife O’Donoghue for their goals. And player of the match goes to captain Aoife O’Donoghue. The U14 girls were in the Fitzgerald Stadium on Sunday supporting the Kerry Ladies v Cavan and met some of the Kerry players after the game.
Co League Div 7 Rd 2: Spa 5-14 to 2-07 Kerins O Rahillys
It was a dry spring evening with a cold stiff breeze blowing down from the Tiernaboul end of the field in the direction of the town centre. Rahilly’s won the toss and opted to play with the wind in the first half and duly opened the scoring with a fine point from play aided by the breeze. Against the wind it took our lads a few minutes to adjust but it wasn’t long before our boys got into a nice rhythm with some fabulous scores & link up play coming from Joey, Fionn, JJ, Luke, Alex, Cormac & Shane. Maurice joy in the half back line wasn’t found wanting in the scoring action either with some lovely scores from play to finish the half 4-05 to 0-04 in favour of the home team. Tralee side responded strongly in the second half with two early goals, and only for some resolute defending by Adam, Jake & our captain Daragh Brosnan coupled with two fine saves by Caoilann Mitchell in goal the margins might have been tighter. The second half also saw the introduction of Jasiek & Thomas in the forward line with both quick to get in on the scoring action. At the same time Daithi O Donoghue was introduced into the half back line to assist in defence and these boys helped immensely in the team finishing the winners on the night.
