In Division 1 Castleisland have moved to the top of the table on their own after they proved too strong for Killarney Celtic C while the Hoops club-mates on the B team were beating Mastergeeha at Kilbrean Park.
Castleisland are now unbeaten in their six league games and in their latest win had Dylan Brown, Padraig O'Connor, Shay Walsh, Ben Cooney, Donal Daly, Adam Morley, Eddie Horan and Mark O'Donoghue all on the score-sheet. Sean O'Shea replied for Celtic.
Meanwhile, in Kilbrean Park Alan and Eamon Murphy were getting goals for Killarney Celtic B as they dented Mastergeeha's chances of winning the League with a 2-1 win. Cormac O'Connor got the only goal for Mastergeeha.
KILLARNEY Celtic have won all their seveb games in the League so far, but the latest was one of the most hard fought.
Mastergeeha were the visitors to Celtic Park where the hosts started with Mark Harnett as a stand in keeper. But this didn't bother the Hoops early on as they went ahead when Cathal O'Shea scored from the penalty spot.
This was soon added to with Dion Marcos climbing highest in the box to head home. However Mastergeeha were very dogged and gradually got a hold in the game.
They were rewarded when Harnett conceded a penalty when trying to tackle an attacker and Paul O'Connor halved the deficit. Mastergeeha continued to press, but the Celtic keeper redeemed himself late on with a great save from a free kick to ensure his side took all three points.
Second placed The Park were not in action but will be delighted as not alone were third placed Mastergeeha beaten, but also fourth placed Kingdom Boys who went down to Killarney Athletic. Padraig O'Brien and Aaron Foley scored for the Killarney side while Sam Tarrant replied for the Tralee boys.
In Division 2 leaders The Park B extended their lead, but only by a point as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Killarney Athletic B who move into joint third place. Patryk Barthy and Tommy Counihan were the Athletic scorers while Donnagh O'Brien and Joe Griffin got the goals for The Park, indeed they were lucky to grab a point as Griffin's equaliser came in the last two minutes.
