Mid Kerry Senior Football League: Group A, Round 3 Result
Milltown/Castlemaine’s Senior side travelled to Glenbeigh last weekend for their third match of the 2023 season against Glenbeigh/Glencar.

Both sides came into the contest with two wins from two games over Cromane and Laune Rangers ‘B respectively meaning that the Round 3 encounter last weekend would decide who topped the group.

In a low-scoring affair, Milltown/Castlemaine played with the breeze in their favour for the opening half but there was nothing separating the two sides at the half-time interval as the scores were level at 1-2 to 0-5.

Jonathan O’Sullivan raising our green flag after a good turnover from Brendan Casey midway through the first half. Gavan O’Grady landed a few lovely scores off the ground at the opposite end for the hosts with Jack Brosnan chipping in too.

The second half was much of the same with little to separate the teams, Glenbeigh/Glencar mainly through the boot of chief marksman Gavan O’Grady moved into a two point lead as the game ticked towards full-time at 0-8 to 1-3, Sean Hogan with Milltown/Castlemaine’s only point in the second half through a fisted effort before late points from Jonathan O’Sullivan and a beauty off the ground into the breeze from Eanna O’Connor seen both sides leave the field all square in what, on the balance of play would have to be considered a fair result.

Both teams will have another outing next weekend in the Mid Kerry League Semi-Finals.
Final score: Glenbeigh/Glencar 0-8 Milltown/Castlemaine 1-5
