Ben O’Connor hit the two Ballyheigue goals, but it wasn’t enough to earn his side the points as goals from Jack Dorgan (two), Tommy Ferris and Aston Mathews gave Dingle Bay Rovers the three points.

Division 2

A hat trick from Player of the Match Ross Cronin and two from Rian Weldon saw MEK White defeat Mastergeeha C. The home side did the damage in the first half as they led 4-0 but Mastergeeha C battled very hard in the second half to their credit.

In mid-week under the lights at Celtic Park Killarney the home side had goals from Pa McCarthy, Tristan Murphy (three) and Steven Shine. It was a good night for the O’Gorman brothers as Ross was named Player of the Match in this one and his brother Ted took the accolade in Celtic’s Under 16 game.



All three possible results were seen in the premier. The game of the day and probably the comeback of the season saw Listowel Celtic come back from 4-0 down with 12 minutes to play to draw 4-4.

A Mike Quirke goal in the first half and a hat trick from Edison Jahiri put St Brendan’s Park 4-0 up as the game entered its final 12 minutes. Michael Daly pulled one back and then with two minutes left James Kissane scored what looked like a consolation. However amazingly over the next few minutes he completed his hat trick to snatch the unlikeliest of draws.

Killarney Athletic were to strong for a depleted Killorglin and won with goals from Szymon Jasinski, Ben Kelliher, Liam O’Brien, Cillian Coffey, Marcel Kowalczyk, Darragh O’Donoghue and Jake Nash.

A Rossa McGearailt hat-trick and one from Robbie Guest gave Inter Kenmare the win away at Tralee Dynamos.

St Brendan’s Park B were too strong for Ballyhar Dynamos as they took the win at Mort Scott Park where Marcus Clifford was the best on the day for the home side. Rian McEvoy, Jack Daly, Johnny Neilings, Tuoyo King and Dean Courtney got the Park’s goals.
