Mike O’Halloran on a famous win for Tralee Parnells today…

Tralee Parnell’s 2-08

Crotta O’Neills 1-10

Tralee Parnells are the North Kerry Hurling Board Under 21 champions thanks to a match willing goal from Luke Chester.

Crotta led by two points 0-04 to 0-02, the Crotta Points coming from Rory Mahony and Cormac White with one each and two points from Cillian Trant, Darragh Reen had two for Parnells.

At halftime Crotta went in a goal to the good when Denis Nolan struck the net, the halftime score read Crotta 1-05 Parnells 0-05.

In hindsight Crotta could have been well in control at halftime were it not for poor shooting resulting in a lot of wides.

Crotta had the best of the second half up to the last few minutes, they led at the second water-break by 1-09 to 0-07.

Crotta were to add only one more point before the end also disaster struck for them when they lost their very influential fullback Tadgh McKenna, Darragh Reen took full advantage when he drove the ball past Darragh Murnane to the net.

Reen added another point before the Parnells hero Luke Chester goaled to put Parnell’s ahead by one 2-08 to 1-10.

Chester had another goal chance before the end but it did not matter as Parnell’s hung on for a famous victory.
