U16’s defeat depleted Cork side

munster lgfa

Well done to our U16 team who on Sunday had a comprehensive win against a very depleted Cork side in Donoughmore in second round Munster tie.  With Cork resting key players it was a skewed result & a much tougher test awaits in the Munster final against the same opposition.  However what was pleasing from a Kerry point of view was the movement & team work of the team with retaining a possession in a smart way being a key indicator of their game while the off the ball running & space created by the forwards was also very pleasing but there is still work to be done which will be the message driven home to the players by manager Graham Shine. Kerry had 3-10 by end of the first half to Corks 1-05, with the 2 Cork keepers making wonderful saves it would have been more. Goals coming from Ciara Murphy, Aoife O’Callaghan & Hannah O’Donoghue.  In the second half it was pretty much the same with Kerry  cutting through the defence & racked on an additional 4 goals through Hannah O’Donoghue * 2 & Rebecca Murphy *2. Final Score Kerry 7-17 Cork 1-09.
