“There’s no stopping Causeway.” That was one man’s comment at the end of the North Kerry Championship game where Causeway overcame St Brendan’s.

Causeway look good and are playing with the confidence of champions, but St Brendan’s could have come much nearer the champions were it not for the three goals they conceded in the first half.

Causeway were ahead within 30 seconds when a Billy Lyons free bounced to the net, Keith Carmody followed with a point. Further points followed from Joe Diggins, Dan Goggin and Brian Murphy before Cian Hussey had St Brendan’s first score.

By halftime Causeway led 3-10 to 0-6 Cian Hussey with two for St Brendans and one from Daithi Griffin.

St Brendan’s battled hard to try to reduce the deficit and tacked on points but were unable to manufacture any goal scoring chance.

Causeway added six points before the end from Dan Goggin (2), Billy Lyons (2), Gearoid O’Mahony and Colum Harty one each.

Cian Hussey drove over eight points for St Brendan’s in the second half with Daithi Griffin, John Egan and Nathan O’Driscoll had one each before the end.

The game was one of two halves with the wind blowing hard from the village end into the St Brendan’s goal in the first half resulting in a puck out from Tagdh Flynn ended up in the St Brendan’s net.

The wind reduce a little in the second half and St Brendans improved their effort and will be pleased enough with their effort but they will need to present themselves with goal chances if they are to challenge for honours later.
