St. Brendan’s League Final 2015:
We played St. Pats in the Final of St Brendan’s Final last Friday in Caherslee on a dry but cold and windy evening. The first half was a dogged affair with both sides showing great intensity and scores were hard to come by.

We started well with a Ciaran Singleton score but St Pats added two scores to go a point ahead. Alan O’Donoghue and Shane O’Connor scored a point each before St Pats deservedly equalised to leave scores at half time St Pats 0-03 to John Mitchels 0-03.

Mitchels started the second half in great fashion and added a score from Oliver Coffey and further points from Alan O’Donoghue(2) and Sean Moloney before we scored a great goal from Mike Deane.

St Pats to their credit came back into it and added two points and would have been way closer only for some wayward shooting. We closed out the game well and ran out deserving winners on final scoreline of John Mitchels 1-07 St Pats 0-05.

The St Brendan’s League Cup was presented to our Captain Lawrence Bastible to the delight of our team, Mentors and Supporters.

Team: Dermot Raggett, Dan Kerins, Brendan O’Mahony, Cian Sheridan, Stevie O’Mahony, Lawrence Bastible(c), Ciaran Deane, Shane o Connor (0-01), Mike Wrenn, Akeem Molloy, Mike Deane (1-0), Jonathan O’Halloran, Alan O’Donoghue (0-03), Ciaran Singleton(0-01), Sean Moloney (0-01)

U12 Girls
The girls had a busy week playing three North Kerry league games against Duagh on Sunday the 22nd which they won, Moyvane on Monday the 23rd which they drew and against Kerins O Rahillys on Sunday the 29th which they also won.

This sets them up nicely in the table and qualifies them for the Shield Final but we wont know the opponents until the other teams have finished their games. Their hard work and committment at training over the past few weeks is showing, the girls are having plenty fun, making new friends and one can see each one of them improving with every match.

The preliminary section of the County League starts on the weekend of April 4th and a full list of games is listed below. These games are subject to change and once they are completed all of the teams in the County will be graded and we’ll commence the County League proper so there is loads of football on the way.

The girls that played last week are as follows; Tara Field, Mairead McCarthy, Lynda O Connor, Elizabeth O Connor, Taylor Rodgers,Eimear Murphy, Erica O Connor, Katie Ross, Caoimhe Leahy, Kerry Oba, Amee Kerins,Lauren Smullen, Angel Quilligan, Molly & Emily Brosnan, Emily & Ciara Poultney, Dawn McLarnan, Paula Clifford & Emma O Donnell.

The club, mentors and players would like to wish Emily O Shea a speedy recovery from her recent injury and hope to see her back soon.
As the evenings are now longer and brighter, we may look to change training times – if this happens everyone will be informed during the week.

Under-16 BOYS
U16 Central Region
Our U16 team were after a busy week which started on Monday 23rd with a comprehensive victory over Cromane at home in our first game in the Central League. We were near full strength for the game and it showed on the pitch with a superb team performance which made us way too strong for our opponents. All our forwards got some wonderful scores which included a magnificent point from Shane McCarthy and a perfectly placed penalty by Jack Myers and our backs have to be praised for keeping Cromane scoreless in the second half.

Next for us was Castleisland Desmonds at home on Thursday 26th in the Castleisland District League. Result: Mitchels 2-9 Desmond’s 3-10. This was a superb game of football played underlights which Castleisland narrowly edged out. A couple of missing players were the difference as we missed a lot of great chances in both halves to get scores and win the game.

We went in at half time 2 points down but a very poor start to the second half saw us 13 points behind with 10 minutes but the players showed great heart to get 2-3 without conceding which included a top class goal clearance from Graham Hudson and an exceptional solo run and goal from Eoin Sugrue.
Finally we played Ardfert at home on Monday 30th which was our third game in seven days.

This game was played in horrendous conditions which resulted in a low scoring game which Ardfert won 0-7 to our 1-0. The wind was blowing straight across the pitch which didn’t suit our team and we struggled throughout the game missing a lot of players from our starting fifteen. We got off to a great start with a goal from Shane Doyle but we really weren’t able to cope with the conditions.

A shoutout has to be given to Shane McCarthy who made some brilliant saves in goals and Mark Ryle was solid at the back with Jonathan Downey and Tadhg Broderick.

We started brightly thanks to Padraig White and James Sheehan in the middle and great work up front from Craig O Brien, Tristan Kirwan and Tyrese Flaherty. Our backs were very solid throughout and Eric Pula was as ever alert between the posts. We ran out comfortable winners in the end on a scoreline of 8-12 to 2-3.
