Senior County Championship:
Kilcummin 2-12 Mid Kerry 0-13
Well done to our senior players and management who recorded a marvellous victory over Mid Kerry on Sunday. Despite being under considerable pressure early on gradually established a foothold in the game and courtesy of two goals from Kieran Murphy and Noel Duggan we lead by six points at half time 2-7 to 0-7.
Mid Kerry cut the deficit two a single point in the third-quarter but our players really showed their character in those final 15 minutes to regain control and run out winners by five points. This was one of the best wins by this team in recent years and it was without doubt a team effort. However, Paul O’Shea, Kieran Murphy, Oscar O’Connor, Shane McSweeney, Enda O’Sullivan and Noel Duggan deserve special mention on this occasion.
We now progress to Round Three where we will play St Kierans on Sunday October 13th in Fitzgerald Stadium.
