The game stood out mainly because of a fabulous hat trick by Dynamos striker Darragh Cunnane and and exhibition of goalkeeping by Dynamos net minder Kyle Clifford making a series of unbelievable saves during the course of the game.

Aided by the strong wind Killarney Celtic dominated the game in the first half but they were unable to score for a long time being denied repeatedly by stunning saves by Dynamos keeper Kyle Clifford.

Then against the run of play Dynamos went ahead with a great finish by Darragh Cunnane.

Celtic equalised on the half hour mark with a fine goal by John O’Shea and three minutes later they took the lead with a deflected goal and it was 2-1 at the interval.

Dynamos brought the game back to parity two minutes into the second half when CJ Daniels stole in behind the Celtic defence and he headed to the net in great style.

Now Dynamos were using the wind to great effect and a brace of goals from Darragh Cunnane which completed his hat-tick was good enough to win the game for the Tralee side.

TRALEE DYNAMOS: Kyle Clifford, Elive Knoivane, Rory Clifford, Adam Hogan, Liam Moloney, CJ Daniels, Sean Whelan, Bryan O’Driscoll, Darragh Cunnane, Evan McCarthy, Jamie O’Shea.

Kerry made the journey to the capital on Saturday and it was always going to be very difficult to get anything from this game against a formidable UCD side. While they managed to score two goals from Andy Kerins and Venis Jahiri they lost comprehensively 7-2 at the end.
