Senior Football Championship - Round 3
Garvey's SuperValu Senior Football Championship
Kenmare Shamrocks 0-17 Feale Rangers 0-12
Kenmare’s good form in championship games continued this weekend when they defeated Feale Rangers in Round 3 of the Garveys Supervalu senior football championship. Kenmare were always in control of this game in Fitzgerald Stadium with Paul O’Connor and Sean O’Shea leading the scoring for them. Conor Cox was accurate as ever for Feale Rangers who trailed by 9 points to 5 at the break. The North Kerry side did reduce that deficit to two points by the 50th minute but then points from Sean O’Shea, Paul O’Connor and Kevin O’Sullivan put daylight between the sides once more.
Scorers: Kenmare Shamrocks: Sean O’Shea 0-6 (4 frees), Paul O’Connor 0-3, Mark Crowley 0-2, Shane O’Sullivan Stephen O’Brien, Sean O’Leary Dara O’Shea and Kevin O’Sullivan 0-1 each. Feale Rangers: Conor Cox 0-9 (7 frees), Anthony Maher 0-2, Kieran Quirke 0-1.
So the Round 3 winners, Kenmare Shamrocks, West Kerry, South Kerry and East Kerry are in the draw for the quarter finals where they will be on one side of the draw against Round 2A winners Dr Crokes, Kerins O’Rahillys. Austin Stacks or Rathmore. The quarter finals depend on Kerry’s progress in the All Ireland series but it will be at least mid to late September before these games are played.
