Kilmoyley give Crotta O’Neill’s a drubbing

Last year’s beaten finalists Crotta O’Neill’s were hammered by former champs Kilmoyley in the opening round of the Kerry SHC yesterday (3-26 to 0-8) at Austin Stack Park.

Kerry’s Shane Brick, scored nine points, before he was called ashore 10 minutes into the second-half, but it mattered little as Kilmoyley led 1-13 to 0-5 at the interval, with Daniel Collins, scoring the goal on the stroke of half time.

It was 3-21 to 0-6 by the 50th minute, with further goals from Andy McCarthy and James McCarthy and with full-forward Sean Maunsell scoring 0-5, it was left to Shane Nolan with six points from frees, to afford Crotta O’Neill’s some degree of respectability.

Three-in-a-row seeking Ballyduff made heavy weather of beating Ballyheigue in the second game, winning 0-13 to 0-10 in a tight affair with second-half sub Thomas O’Rourke scoring five points from play.

On Saturday, despite conceding a first minute goal to John Mike Dooley, St Brendan’s recovered to see off Causeway, while Abbeydorney beat a wasteful, under-strength Lixnaw side 2-9 to 1-11 on Saturday night.

Meanwhile in the Co SFL, Dingle are now on top of the table on their own on 14pts, after another big win over Gneeveguilla 2-16 to 1-9, while Milltown/Castlemaine remain in second place on 12 pts, after losing at home to Kerins O’Rahillys, 2-14 to 0-11.

St Michaels/Foilmore move up the third thanks to a 1-15 to 1-9 win over Spa while Austin Stacks rediscovered their form with a big win over a youthful Laune Rangers side, 1-20 to 0-9.
