Kerry breeze through to semis with emphatic win over Tipperary

Kerry 1-15 Tipperary 0-4

The Kerry minor footballers breezed into the semi-finals of the Munster championship with this emphatic victory over Tipperary.

The winners limited the hosts to one second-half point and it was game over when Tipperary suffered a double-blow on 41 minutes; Kevin Hayes, having conceded a penalty when fouling Ruaidhrí Ó Beaglaoích, was sent off having received a black card to go with his earlier yellow. Paul Walsh nailed the resulting spot kick to send Kerry into a 1-10 to 0-3 unassailable lead.

Captain Paul O’Shea, along with subs Dylan Geaney and Sean Quilter, closed out the win with a succession of points.

The visitors led 0-7 to 0-3 at the break and should have been further in front, with Tipperary goalkeeper Callan Scully producing two fine saves to deny Patrick D’Arcy and Jack Kennelly. Ruaidhrí Ó Beaglaoích had a third goal chance but blasted over from close range.

Tipperary had only one scorer in the first-half, Christy English, the Ballyporeen youngster kicking Tipperary’s one and only point from play in the first-half seven minutes in.

Tipperary play Limerick in a playoff next Wednesday, last chance saloon for both sides.
