Emmets kept their Division two hopes alive with a four point win over Glenflesk at home on Sunday last, thanks to a phenomenal display by Conor Cox and hard work from Noel Kennelly, Padraig Buckley and Brian McGuire. Playing conditions were far from ideal in the opening quarter but after a brisk movement of play between Noel Kennelly and Brian McGuire, McGuire pointed from 30yards on the 3rd minute. Eric O'Donoghue and Seamus Moynihan did well for the East Kerry side but they were well matched by Padraig Buckley and Brian McGuire, sloppy defending from the Listowel side saw Damien McCarthy and Jeff O'Donoghue exchange points. Cian Horan took another point from play under severe pressure from Fergus Reen. However, this is the last time Glenflesk would lead in the game as Emmets got stuck in with McGuire, Quinn and Ger McCarthy picking up a lot of breaking ball. Sean O'Mahony made way for Brendan Guiney on the 23rd minute to marshal the lively Jeff O'Donoghue. Emmets Bryan Greaney and Conor Cox exchanged points, with Cox taking a fine point from play culminating from a fine fetch at midfield by Kennelly worked well with McGuire to find Cox who pointed well under pressure. Emmets led at the break by one leaving the half time score 0-6 to 0-5.

Conor O'Neill made way for Jamie Barry at half time while Stephen O'Donoghue came on for Damien McCarthy in the full forward line for Glenflesk. As Emmets hit a purple patch Conor Cox took three points one from a free to put Emmets three in front. Emmets attacked everything and the pressure applied by the half back and half forward line was telling as Jamie Barry won a low ball from Buckley found Kennelly who hit for goal to be denied by the keeper. In the next movement of play Glenflesk were baring down on the Listowel goal but Guiney intercepted to see his attempt shoot over the bar for a glenflesk point! Jeff O'Donoghue and Cian Horan took two more points from play as Stephen O'Donoghue entered for Dennehy. As the closing 10 minutes approached Cox pointed another free to see Emmets extend their lead to two. Emmets defence did well to hold a borage of attacks led predominately by Seamus Moynihan while Cox took his seventh from play. Kennelly coverted a free in the dying seconds to secure Emmets victory. This was a game with very heavy hits with both half back lines dominant, Emmets and Glenflesk both go to the final round now with everything still to play for.
