Kerry kingpins Sceilge in danger of losing out

COLÁISTE NA SCEILGE, the most successful side in recent times of the (Munster Colleges SFC) Corn Uí Mhuiri, have been given a possible stay of execution in this year’s event.

The clash of Limerick Colleges and St Fachtnas, scheduled for this afternoon has been postponed, though a draw would see both progress at the expense of the Caherciveen school.

The game will now take place early in December.

Tomorrow’s meeting of Dingle CBS and Douglas CS in Fossa is also a crunch game, the winners joining group table toppers Criost Rí in the next stage. Donal Ó Riain, Eoin MacGearailt, Cathal Ó Murchú, Liam Ó Dugháin, and Tomás MacGearailt will lead Dingle, who are favourites to progress despite the efforts of Pat Carroll, Alan Barry, Killian Murphy, Fintan O’Leary and Philip Holland for Douglas.

The meeting of Intermediate School Killorglin and CSN in Knocknagree tomorrow is an important clash, particularly for the Bishopstown school who must win to stay in the title race. A point for ISK would see them through along with Tralee CBS. CSN back-boned by county minors Ken O’Halloran, Michael Shields and Denis Crowley have a dangerous tendency to drift in and out of games, which must be rectified tomorrow.

They showed tremendous spirit in coming from two goals down to defeat Tralee CBS in their previous outing and include James O’Reilly, Edwin Kelleher, Gary Sayers, Sean Caulfield and Fintan Coffey in their ranks.

A win for CSN would mean all three teams finish on level points. Scoring differences would then be used to decide who progresses.

The clash of the St Brendans and St Flannans at Glin tomorrow is only to decide who tops the group.

The Sem looked very good against Glanmire with county minor Brian Looney, Kieran O’Leary, Jamie Doolan, and Michael Moloney particularly impressive, and they look to carry a bit more punch in attack.

There is one Harty Cup tie down for decision tomorrow, an all Tipperary clash of Our Ladys and St. Josephs (Borrisoleigh) at the Ragg.
