East Kerry Bill Tagney Cup: Semi-Final
Result: Spa 2-10 / Gneeveguilla 0-8
Spa dominated in this semi-final against a fancied Gneeveguilla, to reach the final against Scartaglen next weekend. The home side started strong, with frequent possession of the ball and some great scores.
The first goal came from John Falvey, with a deflection from the Gneeveguilla goalie – followed by Mike Mc adding another point. Niall O’Mahoney proceeded to add another, and found the net with a beautiful punch, assisted by John Falvey. It was all Spa in the first half, until the away team slotted over two points, from Michael Murhpy and Padraig Doyle. Towards the end of the first half, Spa scored a few more – from David Spillane, Conor Stack and Mikey Moynihan.
The second half started well for Gneeveguilla, who kept chipping away to narrow the gap – but Spa had already done the damage by this point.
