North Kerry Championship
After a number of postponements, the Under 16s North Kerry B championship finally took place in Caherslee on Saturday afternoon where Tralee Parnells took on Ballyheigue. It was a tight game for most of the first half but a couple of goals by Parnells towards the end of the first half gave Parnells a bit of breathing room. Half time score 3-05 to 0-07. The second half was again a tight affair but our ability to score goals at crucial times proved the difference. Final score 5-11 to 0-14. Parnells captain Oisin O Sullivan accepted the John Joe Nolan trophy on behalf of the team. Well done to Ballyheigue who played well and never gave up until the final whistle. There were some outstanding performances on the day but Andrew Kerins was on another level and was announced as the man of the match.
