U14 Ladies County League Div 4 Beaufort Vs. Castlegregory

Beaufort 7-05  Vs.  Castlegregory 5-10

Castlegregory were always going to be a tough task with Kerry U14 goal keeper Ciara Butler lining out full forward and a young Finola Casey at wing forward showing excellent ability to run at Beaufort and pick up scores kicking with both feet, one to watch out for.  The game started with the visitors going up 1-4 to no score inside the first six minutes.  Worrying signs for Beaufort with Casey carrying the ball and Butler a handful inside in the forwards finding the net on the fifth minute against her Kerry team mate Orla O’Brien.  Addel O’Brien pointed in the sixth minute to calm the nerves another followed by Castlegregory in the seventh before Saoirse Doorian pointed in the eighth. Butler found the net again on the eleventh starting to build up a big lead.  Things had to change for the home side so with Leanne Hayes and Katie Joy switching rolls, Hayes was able to command her Kerry team mate and worked hard defending.  Kerry Eagar switched onto young Casey to match pace for pace. Holly Clifford pointed on the thirteenth from a long range free before Katie Joy started to settle into her new roll at full forward with a great pair of hands she found the net on the seventeen and twentieth minute with two well taken goals bringing Beaufort back into the game trailing by two but the visitors weren’t finished with Casey adding a goal and Butler a point to see out the half.  Half time score 2-3 to 3-6.
Castlegregory opened the scoring with a goal inside the first minute and the Beaufort girls determined not to give up notched up a goal and a point on the second minute from Saoirse Doorian and Meadbh Kissane.  Back to a two point game again the visitors stretched it again adding a point on the ninth. Beaufort becoming brave pushed Hayes out the field and Horgan covered the big full forward.  Leanne Hayes found the net with a strong run on the tenth, Saoirse Doorian on the eleventh but Finola Casey quickly brought it back to a draw on the twelfth with a fine point. Leanne Hayes and Casey swapping goals on the sixteenth and twenth. Castlegregory pointed again on the twenty first and it was anyone’s game at this stage.  Both teams not holding back, Holly Clifford hit the net on the twenty fourth minute and Beaufort were now leading by a point Butler had different ideas pointing on the twenty fifth missing a free on the twenty sixth.  Leanne Hayes kicked the final score of this trilling encounter by two well matched teams to leave the home side leading by at the full time whistle.

Junior Premier Club Championship 2017 – Na Gaeil Vs. Beaufort

From Radio Kerry:

Na Gaeil played Beaufort in the first round on Bank Holiday Monday in what was a perfect day for football. It was the visitors who got off to the better start and scored three unanswered points through a pointed free from Niall O’Connor and two from play from midfielders Ronan Murphy and Shane O’Sullivan. Na Gaeil’s Jamie Lowham had their first point on 7 minutes followed by a point from Diarmaid Herlihy. Fergal Hallisey fired over a free for Beaufort followed by another point from Na Gaeil’s Diarmaid Herlihy to leave the score 0-03 to 0-04 in favour of Beaufort after 20 minutes. Shane O’Sullivan and Diarmaid Herlihy swapped points. Then Na Gaeil hit a purple patch and completely took over. Darragh Carmody and Seamie O’Neill scored a point each for Na Gaeil followed by a point from Stefan Okunbor and a pointed free from Darragh Carmody. The defining score came in the 24th minute when Jamie Lowham passed to Seamie O’Neill and he hit a rasper low and hard to the bottom right corner of the net to put Na Gaeil six ahead. The next three scores were for Na Gaeil when Diarmaid Herlihy fired over his 4th point of the afternoon followed by a Darragh Carmody pointed free and an Ian McCarthy point to leave Na Gaeil 9 points ahead at the whistle. Half time score: Na Gaeil 1-11; Beaufort 0-05.

Beaufort came out in the 2nd half with all guns blazing and soon whittled down Na Gaeil’s 9 point lead. Their corner forward Fergal Hallisey scored a point almost from the re-start and three minutes later Liam Carey burst through the Na Gaeil defence to score a great goal. Then Mike Breen and Liam Carey scored two more points for Beaufort to leave just a goal between the sides with 9 minutes gone in the 2nd half. But Na Gaeil steadied the ship and Darragh Carmody put over two pointed frees to stretch their lead to 5. Liam Carey pointed a free Beaufort on 13 minutes and then came the defining moment of the half when Beaufort were awarded a penalty for a foul on one of their forwards in the small square. Liam Carey stepped up and struck it low and hard to the right but it was brilliantly saved by Tadhg O’Neill in the Na Gaeil goal. Scores were hard to come by from there until the finish. Darragh Carmody pointed yet another free for Na Gaeil and Liam Carey and Na Gaeil’s Dan O’Connor exchanged points to leave the full time score; Na Gaeil1-15; Beaufort 1-10. If Beaufort had scored the penalty things might have different but Na Gaeil held out for a good win. Tadhg O’Neill had a great game between the posts for Na Gaeil. Eoin Doody and Andrew Barry played well in defence. Jack Barry and Stefan Okunbor held their own at midfield and up front Seamie O’Neill, Darragh Carmody, Jamie Lowham and Diarmaid Herlihy were effective. For Beaufort Cormac O’Connor and Ger Hartnett were strong in defence. Ronan Murphy played well in midfield and up front Liam Carey and Padraig Doona showed well.

U14 Girls County League Div 4 Beaufort Vs. Fossa

Beaufort 6-05  Vs.  Fossa (6-05)

Beaufort welcomed near neighbors Fossa in an epic game played in damp conditions.  Beaufort without midfield pair and Fossa missing Danielle O’Brien, Kerry U14 player.  While Beaufort looked like getting off to an flying start inside the first minute with Emma Kissane shooting narrowly wide of the post and Saoirse Dorian hitting the post, it was the visitors who took the early lead notching up two goals of their own in the fourth and fifth minute.  Leanne Hayes pointed in the 6th minute, Fossa quickly answered with another point. Beaufort’s affair with the post continued with Saoirse Dorian hitting it twice more in the eighth and tenth minute. Another goal chance going wide from Emily Kissane on the ninth minute. Fossa had no problem finding the net in the twelfth with a fine goal. Looking well out of the game at this point and poor ball handling the tides turned for Beaufort’s Leanne Hayes who kicked a point from a free on the thirteenth and Saoirse Dorian, Leanne Hayes and Holly Clifford all adding goals in a three minute spell to put the home team into a one point lead.  Addel O’Brien narrowly missed a scoring chance while Fossa added a point on the twenty first.  Beaufort closed out the half with a goal from Emily Kissane on the twenty fifth but Fossa sneaked another goal and point to let the leading by one point at the break.

Fossa took the first score of the second half with a well taken goal with a goal chance going a miss by Beaufort’s Saoirse Dorian.  Holly Clifford found the net on the sixth minute and Saoirse Dorian added a fine point in the tenth minute but will be having nightmares about the post striking it again on the fifteenth. Fossa added a point on the eleventh minute from a free. Leanne Hayes pointed well in the twenty fourth, Saoirse Dorian found the net on the twenty eight minute it looked like the home team could finish out winners but Fossa upset the party with a goal in the twenty ninth.  Holly Clifford pointed on the death but still time remained for Fossa to add one more to end the game in a draw. Both teams happy to leave with a point.


Kerry U14 player Leanne Hayes showed great strength and pace throughout the game, well done to all the girls for the strength and determination shown on the field a joy for the spectators to watch.
