Cordal V Listry Match Report

Cordal faced off against Listry in round 4 of the east Kerry super league last Sunday. The game being played in wintry conditions got off to a good start with both teams tussling for early possession, Cordal’s Sean Og O Ciardubhain got the first score of the game from a pointed free. Listry, playing into a stiff breeze, answered well with four unanswered points, two of which were converted by Joseph Clifford. The home side with the aid of the wind managed only one more score before half time despite having chances which made getting a grip on the game very difficult. Half time read 0-4 to 0-2 in favour of Listry. The second half started with only one team completely dominating the play as after Cordal opened the scoring Listry went and kicked 12 points without reply which told the story of the second half in itself. The bulk of the scores coming from John Foley, Denny O Leary and Joseph Clifford. The home side finished with a consolation point coming from Padraig O Connell to leave the full-time score 0-4 0-16.

Cordal V Rathmore Match Report

Cordal started their East Kerry campaign at home to the O’Donoghue cup champions last Sunday in Cordal. Both teams started at a reasonably good pace and after Rathmore knocked over their first score, the home side went down the other end and won a penalty which was calmly despatched by Padraig Dignan. Rathmore began to show their Division 1 pedigree as they gained control of the game midway through the first half as they slotted over some good points either side of two goals scored by Dunach McCarthy. Half time score line read 2-06 to 1-02 in favour of the away side. The second half saw Cordal get into the game a bit more and an early goal by John Culloty kick started a decent passage of play for them where they converted a couple of scores. Rathmore kept the pressure on though as they kept the points on the board mounting and even a second goal by Padraig Dignan wasn’t enough to swing the inevitability of this tie. Rathmore finished 6 points the better on a scoreline of 3-05 to 2-14.
