Mitchels captured the Central Region Division Two title sponsored by Kellihers Toyota Rathass this afternoon played in a rain and windswept Austin Stacks Park.

Played before a large attendance Mitchels led by double scores at the break 8pts to 4pts having played with the aid of the gale.

However this game was won by a sterling second half  performance into the teeth of the wind. Scoring 1-7 with a Michael Kelliher penalty being the highlight. Churchill never gave up and a late goal brought the margin down to a goal. Mitchels defence stood firm and the final whistle was greeted with great celebration. Captain Cian Holden accepted the shield on behalf of the team.

The Suits Select U-16 Game John Mitchels V Ballymacelligott has been put back to Sunday 1st October,

We are waiting to play Beale/Ballyduff and Kerins O’ Rahillys in North Kerry League with  Town League to follow.

We played Listowel on Thursday last in the North Kerry league in wet and windy conditions in a top of the table clash at Ballyseedy. This was a tight game from start to finish with every score hard to come by. In a very close first half we went in at half time all even at 1-1 to 4 points.

The second half continued to be a tough game and Mitchels tried hard to get ahead but Listowel were not going to give in and with the teams at 1-4 to 1-4 Listowel were awarded a penalty with the resultant kick going over the bar to give Emmets a point lead. Mitchels  threw everything forward and despite hitting the crossbar and station could not get a winner.

Final score Mitchels 1-4 listowel 1-5. Well done to all the girls who put in a tremendous performance and well done to Listowel.We now play Beale /Ballyduff in the next round .

U16 Ladies Town League.
We played Kerins O Rahillys in our opening Town League game on Sunday in Ballyseedy and the girls shook off their defeat to Listowel last Thursday with a good win. Playing with the strong wind in first half we led at the short whistle 3-5 to 2 points. The second half saw Rahillys get back into the game but time ran out and Mitchels won on a score
4-9 to 3-5. Training next Thursday. Well done to all.

There is a break now for the U6s until September. Teamer to be sent out.
