Keel get better of Tarbert in a low scoring contest
County JFC, Round 1
KEEL picked up from where they left off in the Junior Championship six years earlier, defeating a more fancied Tarbert side at the North Kerry venue.
Six unanswered second half points were the key factor in a low scoring win for the Mid Kerry side. Paddy O'Connell had given Tarbert the early advantage as they led by 0-3 to 0-1 but two points for Terry O'Sullivan ensured the visitors would be level on the scoreboard at half-time.
O'Sullivan finished with four points as further white flags from Gary Sayers, Liam Sheehan and substitute Kieran Foley put the game beyond the home side despite points from Danny Wren and O'Connell before the final whistle.
It was the second week in a row that the Keel defence kept their opponents to only six points and they will take great confidence from that result ahead of their next game against Na Gaeil on the Bank Holiday Weekend.
