Killarney Athletic 4 St Brendan’s Park 5
Our lads just came out the wrong side in a 9 goal thriller played at a rain soaked St. Brendan’s Park against an excellent home side. After racing into a 2 goal lead inside 20 minutes. Athletic will be kicking themselves for gifting the park many of their 5 goals in a game that was ultimately decided by an 85th minute penalty scored by the Park. A defensive balance needs to be found for this team to fulfil its obvious potential. Best on the day were Galvin and Byrnes as well as scorers King (2) and Niall O’Riordan (2).
Under 16 National Cup
Killarney Athletic 4 Ballyheigue 1
Scorers for Athletic were David Sheerin, Adam O’Shea, Chris O’Meara and Daragh Coffey. Man of the Match Daragh Coffey and Johnny O’Leary.
Under 14 National Cup
Killarney Athletic 3 Creeves Celtic 1
A depleted team with injuries and players missing due to other commitments had a great 3 goals to 1 win. Captain David Naughton scored a great goal to put us one goal up. But Creeves got a goal back just before half time. The second half was all Athletic with goals from Donal O’Sullivan and Shane O’Connor getting one a piece. A great team performance. Best for Athletic David Naughton, Sergio Martin, David Rea, and James Suter and with our next game against Shannon Hibs in Clare, it will be great to have the rest of the lads back.
Under 12 League
Killarney Athletic 0 Listowel 4

The under 12s travelled to Listowel on Saturday last and the game was played in very bad weather conditions. Against a very good Listowel side Athletic struggled in the first half and were 3-0 down at half time. A 4th goal on the resumption put the side under a lot of pressure but the team responded well and should have scored a couple themselves before the end. While the game finished 4-0 to Listowel, Athletic showed signs that they can do a lot better in upcoming games. Best on the day for Athletic were Man of the match Reece Hegarty, Gary Vaughan, Stephen McKenna and Liam Curran.
