Rad Keating made it 3-0, ten minutes into the second half and further goals by Johnny Clifford and super sub Pa Cournane secured the three points. Cormac O'Shea was excellent in goals for the winenrs. St Bernards 1 Shanakill Athletic 3 THE Shanakill mean machine continues to grind on and they collected another three points to keep them neck and neck with Skelliga with goals from Scott Hennessy, Kevin Quirke and Graham O'Leary. Tralee Dynamos 2 Castlemaine United 1 TRALEE Dynamos B got a much needed win when they overcame Castlemaine.

Daniel O'Connell was the Castlemaine scorer while Kieran McKenna missed a penalty. Best for Castlemaine were Stephen O'Carroll, Seamus Dowd and Jason Giles.

DENNY DIVISION 2B Cedar Galaxy 7 Clanmaurice 3 WHEN you go to watch Cedar you always get plenty of goals and Sunday was no exception. The home side started the better creating chances from the very start and went two up within ten minutes both from Conor Agnew.

Two moments of confusion at the back left the door open for Clanmaurice and they punished both times to draw level.

But Galaxy upped it again and found the net a third and fourth time through Sam Dobbins and Agnew adding his third. It stayed that way at the break with galaxy looking threatening every time they went forward.

The second half brought more goals with Clanmaurice pulling another goal back to make it 4-3 before the home side upped it again with great team play. This allowed Agnew to add his fourth, Dobbins to smash home his second and right back David Slattery joined the goal scoring party near the finish to help the home sides goal difference.

A very good team performance giving plenty options going forward and every individual hungry to get on the ball with lots of slick passing movement. Other good performances for the home side came from Sean Coppinger, Adam Waterworth and Mark Murphy. Annascaul FC 2 Valley Wanderers 2 THIS was a big game for both sides and Annasscaul will be the happier side with the result as they had to come from 2-0 down to secure a draw. Valley established a two-goal lead with strikes from new Daddy, Ger Myles and David Kerins.

However, in the second half Annascaul got back into the game with a Shane Foley goal after being set up by Garreth O'Donnell.

In the final minute the West Kerry side were awarded a hotly disputed penalty which Eamon Hickson scored at the second attempt. Bayview Rovers 0 Tralee Athletic 3 TRALEE Athletic briefly took the leadership of this division with a 30 win over Bay View Rovers but Na Fianna's 3-0 win over CS Abbeydorney on Monday night saw them take over as table toppers.
