2013 Castleisland Mart County Intermediate Football Championship 1st Round

Spa 0-05 Listowel Emmets 0-13

Listowel Emmets qualified for the Quarter Final of the 2013 Castleisland Mart County Intermediate Football Championship against Castlegregory after a good win over Spa, Killarney on Sunday last. Playing against a strong wind in the first half, Emmets went in all square at half time 0-04 a piece, thanks to points from Conor Cox and Noel Kennelly and strong defensive work by the 6 backs especially Jack McGuire and Denis Walsh. Emmets with the aid of the breeze were soon in front with a good point from play from Conor Cox. Emmets defence were once again on top with Noel Kennelly getting the better of a strong pairing at midfield gave the Emmets forwards fast ball to Conor Cox and Bryan Murphy which was duly converted. Emmets could have sealed the game earlier when Murphy's shot trailed wide. Overall this was a great win away from home, and well done to the entire team who got down to business early and got the job done.

Listowel Emmets Ladies

Listowel Emmets Ladies recorded a fantastic win in the county league on Sunday away to Castleisland. Following some good performances in recent weeks against Southern Gaels and Sneem Kenmare where the result went against them this week a great team performance was rewarded with maximum points.

Emmets Ladies got off to a great start with a well worked goal from Laura Lavery in the first few minutes. With the defence working very hard as a unit to keep Desmonds at bay the Listowel forwards notched up a few more good points, 6 from Laura Lavery and one from Sarah O'Brien, making the most of the space at 13 a side.

The half time score was 1-07 to 0-05.

Castle Island had the benefit of the wind in the second half and came back into the game to get within one point of Listowel with about 10 minutes to go. From then the two teams traded scores and but for a superb save from Joanne Fitzgerald and some great defence this game could have slipped away from Listowel. Castle Island got the last score of the game with a pointed free but Listowel held out for a well deserved and very important win.

Final Score 1-12 to 0-14.

Listowel Panel and Scorers:

Joanne Fitzgerald, Kate Sayers, Heather O'Rourke, Ciara Gallagher, Breda Lane, Rebecca Stapleton, Aoife Gallagher, Norma O'Sullivan, Aoife Shine, Mary Beades, Sarah O'Brien (0-01), Laura Lavery (1-10), Miriam O'Keeffe (0-01), Laura Foley, Emma Thornton, Rachel Stapleton.

Our under 14 team participated in the Feile last weekend and were unfortunate to lose by one point to John Mitchels. Meanwhile girls from our under 12 team who will play in the community games played a challenge match with Ballyduff in preparation for the upcoming games.

This Saturday our under 8/10’s will host Killarney Legion in their first game of the season. We are continuing to see great numbers in the Saturday Morning Club with 21 under 10’s and 16 under 8’s taking part last week. This is a fantastic opportunity for girls to be part of a team and get regular exercise with their friends. All girls under 8/10 are invited to come along and new players are always welcome.

Teams have recently been selected for the upcoming John B. Keane League and will be announced in the coming weeks.

Registration is now due for all members: €20 for under 10, €50 for under 12-18, €65 adult players.
