U14 East Kerry Division 3 Final: Spa 3-15 Firies 4-11
A very exciting final that came down to the last kick of the game to decide who would win this thriller of a game in Fossa. Our young players played with heart and determination till the very end to snatch a great victory over a gallant Firies team. Firies started very strong scoring 1-1 before Timmy Moynihan registered our first point. Firies scored another point before Spa took control with scores from Joey McCarthy, Aidan Cronin, Oran O’Neill and Timmy Moynihan. However, Firies responded with another goal. Joey McCarthy a great addition to the u14 squad was excellent as the free taker and slotted over two points after fouls on Aidan Cronin and Kalvin O’Sullivan. Spa reduced the deficient down to two points until Firies went up the field to score another goal. Luke O’Neill, Oran Daly, Oran O’Neill and Shane O’Sullivan scored to bring us into the lead by one point at the end of the first half.
Firies once again started extremely strong and took the lead in the first five minutes. Our lads were not going to leave this behind and Kalvin O’Sullivan scored a great goal. Opposition replied with three more great points. However, another goal by Timmy Moynihan that just dropped in over the goalies reach. All level again and Firies registered another few points. Luke O’Neill outstanding throughout the entire game with great runs and fielding passed to his cousin, Oran O Neill to score a valuable goal. We once again took the lead by two. Firies scored a goal and took the lead. They followed once again with another point. Our lads dug deep and pulled off another great point by Timmy Moynihan. A foul on Donal Hickey, found Joey McCarthy slotting over another great score. We were level now and a great score by Kalvin O’Sullivan was incidentally the last score of the game. We defended till the end and held possession until referee John Dineen blew the final whistle to the delight of the players and mentors.
