Minor Co. Championship Rd3: Austin Stacks 1-6; East Kerry 6-12.
With the two teams already through to the quarter finals this last game in the group stage, played in Connolly Park on this Tuesday evening (9th July), was used as a tester for things to come and the one thing we did learn, if we hadn’t know already, is that East Kerry will be ‘thee’ team to overcome in this season’s championship. They led by 4-8 to 1-3 at half time and in the second half added a further 2-4 to 0-3 for us.
So the way is now clear for the quarter final draw. We cannot be drawn against East Kerry at the quarter final stage but could be drawn against any of the other six teams who have come through the group stage – that’s Kenmare District, West Kerry, St. Brendans and Mid Kerry (Divisional teams) and the two other Club teams, along with ourselves, Laune Rangers and Rathmore.
Team: Ben Quilter, Niall Fitzmaurice, Luke Chester, Craig Teahan, David Burke, Adam Curran, Mark Holden, Eoghan Carroll (Capt) (0-1), Dara Barry Walsh, Tom O’Farrell, Daniel O’Rourke, Greg Scanlon, Cian Purcell (1-0), Mervyn Shalamba (0-1), Conor Myers (0-4 – one free).
Subs used: Joey Nagle (41m), Conor Horan (41m), Matthew Browne (55m).
