The senior side after the win on Sunday.

Lee Strand Tralee & St Brendan’s District Board League  Final

Kerins O Rahillys 2-15

John Mitchels 1-04

Last Sunday saw us travel to Connolly Park to take on John Mitchels in this years town league final.

Taking the field with mainly a second string team, we still managed to control the game from start to finish.

With the elements against both sides and conditions particularly bad, we opened the brighter with midfielder Diarmuid O Sullivan converting two early placed balls, indeed O’Sullivan would continue to kick expertly throughout the contest with some superb frees from the ground.

As the half progressed we were completely dominant and this was rewarded on the scoreboard with points from Gearoid Hartnett, Ben Hanafan, Conor O’Sullivan (2) and Diarmuid O’Sullivan (3).

With a few minutes to go before the break , we were awarded a ‘45. This was taken by Diarmuid O’Sullivan, and for once he didn’t make a good connection, however his effort was dropping short and with a number of opposing players flapping at the incoming ball, it flew into the Mitchels net. This left us ahead at half time on a score line of 1-9 to 0-2.

The second half saw us make a number of substitutions ,with Gearoid Savage,Ryan OCarroll and Shane McElligott being introduced.Shane McElligott made an immediate impact with two quick scores from play.

Moments later came our second goal, this time coming from the impressive Conor O Sullivan, who cut through the John Mitchels rearguard and blasted an unstoppable shot to the roof of the net from twenty meters out, this brought the score to 2-11 to -02.

With the game now over as a contest , we added further scores from the busy Danial Bowler, a Gearoid Savage mark, a free from Diarmuid O Sullivan and another point from Shane McElligott.

John Mitchels did manage to get a consolation goal near the end , but in truth the team in blue were far superior and dominated throughout the field.

A good outing for the Strand Road men, particularly pleasing to give the fringe players an opportunity to get some well deserved game time, and to their credit they did not disappoint, playing some intelligent football from start to finish.
