Causeway had the better start to the game when they went into a three point lead before the south Kerry boys had their first score on twelve minutes when they struck two points in a row.

Causeway came back with three more unanswered points from the stick of Gary Carey.

Kenmare/Kilgarvan/DrCrokes replied with two points one from a wonderful sideline cut from Gearoid Fennessey their captain.

Causeway went in at halftime leading by four points on a scorline of Causeway 1-07 K/K/DrC 0-06, the Causeway goal coming from an eighty yard free from Evan Murphy which eluded Michael Hogan and ended up in the net.

The South Kerry combination were only one behind after fifty one minutes when James McCarthy powered his way in to kick the ball to the net 1-13 to 1-12 at this stage.

The southerners second goal from Donal O’Sullivan put them two points ahead. Causeway did add a further point from Gary Carey but Donal O’Sullivan and Gearoid Fennessey added one each to bring Kenmare/Kilgarvan/DrCrokes into the final where they will face Lixnaw on a date to be decided.
