Report

Round 1 – 12 June 2021 – Tramore Valley Park – Leeside Lions 5 Goals (30) Kerry Suns 3 Goals (18)

Kerry Suns made their debut with a match-up versus the previous years’ winners Leeside Lions on Wednesday 12th June in Tramotre Valley Park, Cathal Curran getting their first ever goal in two minutes as they flew out of the traps. Leeside Lions replied quickly with goals by Darren O’Dwyer and Dapper O’Donnell to take a 12-6 lead. There was very little between the teams with defence strong. A lull followed in the second half with little or no exciting action until Cian O’Mahony putting the Lions further in front with a well-worked goal and Conor Nyhan moving up from the backs on his debut to extend the lead to 24-6. The game ended with much excitement as what must have seemed an insurmountable Leeside Lions lead was cut back to one goal with goals by Ian Sull and Steve McCarron before Darren O’Dwyer got his second of the day to finish off the scoring. Final Score 30-18 to Leeside Lions.

Round 1 – 12 June 2021 – Tramore Valley Park – Bombers 5 Goals (30) Saints 6 Goals (36)

A fiercely-contested, evenly-balanced match between Bombers and Saints greeted onlookers in Tramore Valley Park as Steve McCarron scored two goals for the Bombers and Alan Daly’s sizzler on the run which was the Saints first goal. Despite the early pressure Bombers were unable to convert their opportunities into goals and then Brian O’Shea netted twice to put the Saints 18-12 up at half-time. Cian O’Mahony and Cathal Curran swapped goals in the second half before Steve McCarron got his third goal of the match to square the score at 24-24. Harry Hynes put the Bombers in front but just as it looked like they were on top of things Andrew O’Neill scored a monster from way out on the wing against the run of play and then with less than a minute to play Paul Murphy had a set shot to the right of the posts which he made no mistake with, kicking the winning goal. Score at the Final Whistle: Bombers 30 Saints 36.
