Intermediate Championship Rd3:
Spa 4-16 Laune Rangers 1-16
Played in a sunny Spa on Saturday evening, Spa needed to rack up a high score and wait on other results to keep their championship hopes alive – and they certainly did that, kicking 4-5 in a massive second half comeback. Match report available online
Spa Team: James Devane, Eoin Fitzgerald, Dan O’Donoghue (0-1), Bryan Russell, Shane Cronin, Niall O’Mahony (0-3), Brian Lynch, Liam Kearney, Andrew Garnett, Ryan O’Carroll, Mike McCarthy, David Spillane (1-1), Niall McCarthy (1-3), Ciaran Spillane, Evan Cronin (2-7). Subs: Gary Vaughan, Cormac Cronin (0-1)
U14 Co League Rd3:
Spa 3-9 Listowel Emmets 5-14
A great competitive game of football took place in Spa between Spa and Listowel. The opposition started well notching up some scores. However, the Spa management made some instrumental positional changes and midfielder Oran O’Neill opened up our scoreline. Great teamwork from Mark Daly, Danny Coffey , Oran Daly and Timmy Moynihan resulted in more results. Listowel responded with a well taken goal. Points exchanged between both teams but the visitors started to pull away in the first half with a half time score of Spa 0-5 to Listowel 4-3.
Second half the team started with a great goal by David O Sullivan and a few points from Kalvin O Sullivan to decrease the margin. Listowel scored a few more points and David O Sullivan found the net once again. We kept the opposition scoreless for the next fifteen minutes but they woke up to pull away even further.
The defense worked tirelessly with great work from Chris Healy, Donal Hickey , Cian Russell, Liam O’Leary and pulled off great blocks and goal keeper Aaron O’Connor had some great saves. Midfielders Oran O’Neill and Luke O’Neill won some great ball in the middle of the field and delivered to our forward line. David O’Sullivan, Kalvin O’Sullivan, Timmy Moynihan, Aidan Cronin, Oran Daly and Emmet Spillane were a nightmare for the North Kerry side.
Our subs that were introduced, Cathal Coffey, Daniel Daly, Cathel Mackey, Conor Sowerby and Lucas Sowerby, all contributed but couldn’t defeat Listowel on the night.
