Senior Football League Division 2  Round 2

Listry 0-6. Gneeveguilla 1-5.

This game postponed from last week as both clubs had players involved in the successful Liebherr team in the All Ireland Inter Firms was played in Listry on Saturday evening. With both teams having lost their first round game this tie was eagerly awaited by the two East Kerry teams. The game was slow to start with Listry first to score from a free by Damien Clifford in the second minute. The next score did not come until the 17th minute when the visitors levelled through D J O Connor. Both teams were guilty of some poor shooting during this time. Listry were dominating possession but could not convert it to the score board. Gneeveguilla scored two points to Listry’s one over the last few minutes of the first half to leave the half time score Listry 0-2 Gneeveguilla 0-3. The home side started much better in the second half and were level almost from the throw in as Garry O Sullivan tied the sides. Further points from John Foley and Derry Ahern had Listry in the lead by  5 points to 3 as the game entered the final quarter. At this point D J O Connor was dismissed following an off the ball incident. This seemed to benefit the visitors rather than Listry and when substitute Ger Moynihan was at the end of a move to finish to the net to put Gneeveguilla in front. The same player extended their lead with a point and with a point from D O Connor to Listry’s late point from John Foley Gneeveguilla ran out winners 1-5 to Listry’s 0-6.
