County Senior League Div 2: Round 3 Listowel Emmets 0-013 Spa 1-14
Frank Sheehy Park was the venue as Listowel Emmets played host to Spa in Division 2 of the County League on Saturday afternoon last. Both teams came into this game unbeaten and a lively game was promised from the outset. The home team were first on the board with a good score by Cormac Mulvihill from a tight angle. Conor Cox was next to raise the white flag from a placed ball to put Emmets in front by 0-02 to no score. Emmets looked to be settling better in the early stages and were working hard in all sectors of the field. It wasn't until the 6th minute that Spa really came into the game and did so impressively rattling off 3 scores without reply to take the lead, with Andrew Garnett and Craig Hickey to the fore. Conor Cox got his fist to a long ball into the Spa square and drew the home side level on 11 minutes. The game was nip and tuck before Spa full forward Mike Foley got free and blasted low and hard to the corner of the net. Both teams traded blows with Cox and Mulvihill scoring for Listowel while Foley and Hickey pointed for the away side to leave the score at 0-5 to 1-05 with ten minutes to go to the break. Emmets recovered well from conceding the goal and worked hard to get back into the game with Jake Moriarty and Maurice Whelan winning some important 50-50 clashes and Denis Walsh sending over a beautiful score to leave just one between the sides. With just 3 minutes left to the half-time whistle, Emmets custodian Keith Hughes pulled off the first of 3 great saves when he tapped a rocket of a shot from Craig Hickey around the post. The visitors really had the bit between the teeth now and tacked on two more score before the break, 1 each from Shane Lynch and Andrew Garnett.

Half-time score: Emmets 0-07 Spa 1-07

Second Half:

As the rain started to fall, Emmets came roaring out of the blocks and hit four scores without reply to race into a one point advantage, Aidan Quinn, David Sheehy and a Conor Cox brace doing the damage. The home side were in control all over the park and really took the game to Spa who found it very hard to contain their opponents. Darragh Leahy, Jake Moriarty and Jack McGuire all grew into the game and it wasn't until the 9th minute that the visitors worked the scoreboard with a placed effort by Craig Hickey. That was just what the doctor ordered as the tables totally turned and it was the Killarney sides turn to hit another 3 without reply, with Evan Cronin and Dan O'Donoghue adding their names to the score sheet either side of another Craig Hickey free. With 8 minutes left on the clock, Keith Hughes was again called into action in the Emmets goal-line with a superb double save to keep Listowel in the game. Andrew Garnett who had a fine second half, sent over a '45 to stretch Spa's lead to 4 but the home side would not lie down and fought tooth and nail for every ball. Another Conor Cox brace gave Emmets hope of getting something out of the game before Mike McCarthy and Craig Hickey sealed victory for the visitors with two well worked scores. This was a tough battle between two good sides who really should hold their own in this years campaign. Emmets worked extremely hard to get back to level terms and will be slightly disappointed that they didn't threaten the scoreboard more often. They have a good mix of youth and experience and on another day could well have come out on top.

Final Score: Emmets 0-13 Spa 1-14

Emmets U14 Div 4 team travelled to play Beaufort on April 3rd.  The game was played in beautiful conditions with both teams serving up a very sporting contest. After some tentative finishing Beaufort finally broke the deadlock after 7 minutes. They continued to dominate the first half and had built up a significant lead by half time. The Emmets girls came out fighting in the second half and really showed their mettle.  They outscored their hosts in the second half but the lead proved to be too much and the Beaufort girls ran out comfortable winners. Well done to both teams.

Our U14 Div 4 team also travelled to Tralee to play Churchill on April 9th. In terrible weather conditions the Listowel girls were always in control of this game. Emmets were ahead 4-2 to 1-0 at half time with Nadine Moloney contributing heavily to the scoreline. The second half continued in much the same vein with the Emmets backs in complete control. Zara Doherty had a very strong showing at mid field while Emma Browne was excellent in defence.. Emmets eventually ran out winners 7-7 to 1-1 and will face Castlegregory at home next week.

Coiste na nOg:

Saturday Morning Club: Training, fun and game continues on this Saturday morning at 10.30am at the sportsfield. All are welcome and hope to see ye there.  
Our under 12's had a well deserved break this weekend as all games across the county were called off due to adverse weather conditions. They are away to Beaufort in round 3 of the county league next Sunday the 17th of April  at 6pm.
Our under 14's  played John Mitchels in Tralee on Wednesday the 6th  of April in the 2 of their county league campaign . Mitchels had built up a  lead by half time but the second half was a much tighter affair with the Emmets boys giving a great account of themselves, staying strong right to the end. While Mitchels won the match, the Emmets team can be very proud of their performance, their never say die attitude and their great scoring of 3-6. Next up for the boys is Currow away in the county league on Wednesday the  20th of April at 7pm.
The stretch in the evenings was taken full advantage of bank holiday Monday as Frank Sheehy park was the venue for the opening game of the under 16 north Kerry league. The Listowel side came out on top against a Beale side who had an admirable never say die attitude and everyone in attendance was in agreement that the game was a lot more competitive than score line suggests.
Beale got off to a good start with a point within 30 seconds but a quick reply from Listowel corner forward Mark Galvin levelled matters after a great through ball from Shane Loughnane. Scores were at a premium for a number of minutes with the Listowel defence defending tenaciously before Steven Mccarthy, who was a menace in the Beale defence throughout, hit a rasper of a shot into the Beale net leaving the Beale goalkeeper with no chance. The Listowel midfield were getting on top as this stage and were playing great direct ball into the slick moving Listowel full forward line. The defence was also assisted greatly with the great work rate of the Listowel half forward with Conor Costello in particular tracking back on several occasions to make some great turnovers. Shane Loughane, who made great surging runs into the Beale defence from wing back, then got on the score sheet with a point after one of his trade mark runs from defence. Beale replied with two well taken unanswered points and very easily could have had a goal only for great defending from Jack Donovan which meant Beale had to be satisfied with a point . Beale really had the momentum at this stage. The Listowel boys are made of tough stuff however and Listowel full forward Shane Hughes had 1-1 to his name within 30 seconds after great turn overs by Fergal Wall and Sean Keane.    Beale launched some menacing attacks but the Listowel full back line in particular stood strong and kept Beale at bay on several occasions with some teak tough defending. A Steven McCarthy point was followed by a goal from the boot of Sean Keane after Fergal Wall made a great run through the heart of the ball defence. Shane Hughes added two goals to his name in quick succession before half time to complete his hat trick and  these were the last score before John Ross blew the half time whistle. 
Devan McKenna replied to an early point from a Beale free with a point of his own after 1 minute of the second half. Beale made some great attacks at the beginning of the second half but a combination of great defending and goalkeeping from Cameron Joy kept Beale scores at a minimum. Shane Hughes was not satisfied with a hat trick and had a fourth goal to his name after 10 minutes of the second half after Pa Moloney provided the assist. Beale got on the score sheet with two quick points after some great moves from defence to attack and were still trying very hard. A number of wides from both sides followed before 3 points from the boot of Steven McCarthy and a point each from Devan McKenna and Conor Costello again widened the margin. Beale did not give up however and scored the last 1-2 of the goal which a testament to their never say die attitude. This was a great win for a strong Listowel team. Final score Listowel-6.10 Beale 1.8 Listowel Emmets are away to Moyvane/Tarbert on April 11th at 6.44 in their next game.
