North Kerry League Division 3 Listowel Emmets B 3-17 Desmonds B 0-7
Listowel Junior B team took on Castleisland Desmonds in Listowel on Tuesday night last in the fourth round of the North Kerry league. Desmonds started the better of the two sides with kicking two good points within the first 5 minutes. However Listowel came right back into it with a well taken goal by Darragh Leahy. Further points from Eddie Joe Walsh Rici Hanley and Dave Keane left Listowel ahead by 1-4 to 2 points. A second first half goal and further points from Darragh Leahy, Dave Keane Eddie Joe Walsh and Jerry Kelliher left Listowel ahead at half time by 2-9 to 3 points.
From the start of the second half Listowel never stop pressing forward and the introduction of Darragh Hughes made a significant influence on the game. A great team effort by Listowel worked up from the backs where the ball was coolly slotted into the net by Hughes put a final nail in the Desmonds coffin. Listowel kicked on from here and kicked point after point to run out comfortable winners at 3-17 to 7 points.  On the night Listowel were the better team however Desmonds had travelled with a weakened side and were up against it from the word go.
Best on the day for Listowel were Ricky Halpin, Darragh Leahy, Jerry Kelliher and Dara Hughes who finished with a personal tally of 1-5 from play when coming on in the second half.

Castleisland Co-Op Mart Intermediate Championship - Round 1

Listowel Emmets 1-11 Keel 0-7, the scoreline of this fixture does not reflect what a tough battle Emmets faced at home to the 2013 Junior Champions, Conor Cox opened the scoring from a pointed free, followed by a well worked point from Noel Kennelly, Gary Sayers dropped over a pointed free for the visitors. Keel continued to operate a deep defensive game and continued to frustrate the Emmets forward lines, with both teams guilty of wayward shooting, leaving the first half with 0-4 a piece it was all to play for in the second half. Keel raised into a two point lead and were playing with confidence good defensive work by Emmets and in particular the McGuire brothers and Cormac Mulvihill, ensured they did not keep their lead for long, as the industrious Conor Cox pointed from play followed quickly by point from David Sheehy and Maurice Whelan. The game continued to ebb and flow but wayward shooting from both sides saw no team pull away until Micheal Stack shot for the games only goal and place Emmets in the driving seat until the final whistle. Emmets next meet with Spa in the Intermediate Championship on Sunday 11th May at home at 2.30pm.
