Senior Co. League Div 1: St. Marys 1-6; Austin Stacks 4-15.
We travelled to Con Keating Park in Cahersiveen on this Saturday afternoon (9th Nov) for our 11th and final round game of the Co. League and came away with a good win against a St. Marys side who had nothing to play for from a League point of view and who were resting a lot of key players as they prepare to play Waterville in a fortnight’s time in the opening round of the South Kerry Championship.
We did all the damage in the first half, going in at the break with a seventeen points advantage (3-10 to 0-2). Wayne and his colleagues emptied the bench during the second half and with our lads taking their foot off the pedal we just shaded the scoring during this period (1-5 to 1-4) and now find ourselves in a play-off spot against either Dr. Crokes or Dingle (who have yet to play their final round game on a date to be fixed) to decide who will play Rathmore in the Co. League Final.
