Juvenile Academy

There was no academy session for our U6, 8 and 10’s last Sunday due to Kerry’s involvement in the Munster minor and senior finals in Killarney. It resumes as usual this Sunday at 10.30am.

U12 Mixed:We will be competing in Div. 4 of the Central Region League and are grouped with Dingle, Na Gaeil and Laune Rangers. The competition will begin on Monday, 7th of August with fixtures to follow. We will be in touch via text messages on training days and times.

U12 Girls: Our girls team played a very entertaining and exciting challenge match against our neighbours, Kerins O’Rahillys last Friday evening, coming out on top on a score line of 5-08 to 5-03. This was a great display of score taking by our team in the first half and heroic defending against everything our opponents threw at us in the second half. As usual, our girls played with great skill, determination and teamwork.

U14: Our U14’s drew against Laune Rangers B last Monday in Blennerville in Division 3 of the Central Region League. Scores at full time was 4-04 apiece. It was a gutsy performance by our players and some great scores were registered on the evening. Next game is against Austin Stacks B at home this Monday, the 3rd @ 7pm.

U16: Our U16’s had another convincing win in the County League last Wednesday in Blennerville against Ballydonoghue. Full time scores were: St Pats 7-14 Ballydonoghue 4-14.


SFL Divison 2, Round 7

Glenflesk 1-13

St Pats 0-14

Glenflesk took all the spoils in this County League game played in slippery and misty conditions in which Glenflesk’s full forward, Darragh Roche scored 1-6 with 3 frees to strenghten their position on the table.

An injury inflicted St Pats started the game very brightly registering the first 2 points of the game through a converted 45 by Liam O’Sullivan and David O’Callaghan from play.

Fizzy was called into early action when Inter-County Junior player, Jeff O’Donoghue, whose pace which was causing our defence line all sorts of trouble found himself in a goal scoring position but Fizzy made a great save.

Glenflesk got on the score sheet in the 8th minute from a converted free by Darragh Roche and they went on to score the next 3 points without reply.

Glenflesk saw a lot of ball especially in centre-field where they domianted play but it took sheer resilience on the part of David O’Callaghan to shoot from long range to put an end to the rot and he added another from a free 3 minutes later.

It did little to deter the home side as they ended the half with a curling effort from their left half-back to take a 2-point lead to the break.

The home side continued from where they left off by scoring the first 2 points of this half including a curling effort from Darragh Roche.

St Pats got on the score sheet from a Breandáin Savage free and a Paul McMahon point from play to close the gap to 2 points.

The turning point of the game came in the 24th minute when Jeff O’Donoghue once again found space through the middle of the field and accelerated towards goal with only Tommy Lynch and Fizzy remaining in our back line but he had Liam O’Sullivan in hot pursuit but his tackle was committed inside the square.

Darragh Roche stepped up and converted the penalty to nudge his side up by 6 points with about 5 minutes of normal time to play.

Late points from Breandáin Savage, David both from frees and a Kevin O’Shea point from play was not enough as the defence line of Glenflesk withstood a late St Pats onslaught as they ran out victors on a score line of Glenflesk 1-13 St Pats 0-14

Overall, it was disappointing that we did not come away with any points from the match. This was due to the disciplined Glenflesk defence and our wastefulness in front of goals as we registered a total of 13 wides during the course of the game.

St Pats: John Fitzgerald, Tommy Lynch, Kieran Dwyer, Tommy O’Connor, Jeffrey Foley, Kevin O’Shea (0-1), Brian Murphy, Liam Poff, Paul McMahon (0-1), Liam O’Sullivan (0-2), David O’Callaghan (0-5,2f), Brendan Poff (0-2), Eoin Greaney, Breandáin Savage (0-3,3f), Gary Savage

Subs: Paul McMahon for Tommy O’Connor, Eoin Greaney for Brandon Boyle, Eoin Sayers for Gary Savage

Our next match is on Sunday, the 16th of July when we will be playing away to Listowel Emmets in Round 8 of the SFL. Throw-in time is at 3pm.
