Club Notes Week 31 2022   08/08/2022

Senior Club Championship Dr. Crokes 1-16 Kerins O’Rahillys 0-23. We had a disappointing start in our Club Championship campaign in a game played on a glorious day in Castleisland Desmonds GAA on Sunday. Lining out without Kerry players Gavin White and Shane Murphy, Rahillys proved the stronger at the final whistle. Rahillys started the better, leading 4 points to 1 point after just 5 minutes of play. Brian Looney opened our scoring with a point from play. A well taken goal from Tony Brosnan give us a lead for the first time in the game. 3 unanswered points from Rahillys before Tony Brosnan replied with a free from the mark leaving the score 0-8 to 1-3 after the first quarter. Both teams kept the scoreboard ticking over, leaving the score 0-12 to 1-6 at the half time break. We started the second half well with points from Tony and Micheal Burns leaving the sore 1-10 to 14 after 39 minutes of play. We refused to lie down but Rahillys emerged as deserving winners.  

East Kerry Junior Final Dr. Crokes 1-13  Gneeveguilla 0-13. Our Junior team brought back their first bit of silverware of the year after a well fought battle against Gneeveguilla on Tuesday last. Both teams worked hard throughout the game with the goal being the difference after 60 minutes of play.  

North Kerry Senior Hurling Championship Dr.Crokes 0-27 Lixnaw 2-18 (AET). Our senior hurlers made the trip to Lixnaw on Bank Holiday Monday evening to meet the home side in the Preliminary Round of the North Kerry Senior Hurling Championship. With a strong wind to our backs in the first half, the team linked up well together to build a formidable lead by the break. Long range points from Mark Heffernan, Tom Doyle and Vinny Doyle saw us lead 0-14 to 1-03 at half time. We started the second half well against the breeze but Lixnaw got a grip on the game and together with another goal, levelled matters after 15 minutes. It was then back and forth with a spread of scorers including Kevin Landers, Jack and Michael Lenihan and Rob Ryan. Both sides rued some uncharacteristic wides in what was a very free-flowing skilful game, resulting in a level score line at the full time whistle, 0-22 to 2-16. Both sides gave everything they had in extra-time in what was a real classic, enjoyed by all spectators. James Murphy and Mike Milner held strong, winning vital possession and delivering forward. We contested every ball and persevered as a team to claim a well fought victory. We will now face Crotta O’Neill’s at a date and venue to be confirmed.  

County Minor Championship Dr.Crokes 1-06 Austin Stacks 0-09. Our minors earned a well-deserved draw in an entertaining game played in very difficult conditions in round 3 of the county minor championship in Lewis Road on Monday last. Scores from Shay O’Meara 1-2(2f) Alex Hennigan 0-2(1f) Cormac O’Donoghue 0-1 Neill O’Carroll 0-1.
