U-14 Football

Our U-14 team suffered their first defeat in the East Kerry League to Spa Last Wednesday night. Spa took the game to our lads from the very start and we could never get a period of dominance during the game. We kept in touch for the first 15 minutes and trailed by 4 points to 2 points. Spa then took control and increased their lead to 1-8 to 0-3 at half-time. We showed an improvement in the second half but could make no impression on the scoreboard. Despite the best efforts of Joseph Keogh who was outstanding at full-back Spa were able to add points to their score and ran out comfortable winners on a score line of 1-15 to 0-6.

Five of our players were on the East Kerry U-14 District Board team that defeated St Brendan’s 4-13 to 3-9 in the County Championship quarter final on Monday night.

UNDER 12 HURLERS

 The conditions were very difficult on Friday when the Dr Crokes hurlers travelled to Killorglin, trying to keep their perfect record in this year’s county league.  The driving rain was not going to dampen these boys enthusiasm for the game and the victory.

 Alex Goggins started like a man possessed.  He followed every ball that was sent up to the forward line.  His efforts soon paid off when he grabbed the first score a rasper of a goal.  John Ivory was soon to follow when he won a goalmouth scuffle to find the back of the net.  Two goals in quick succession from Cillian Fitzgerald, who was dominant as this stage of the game, seem to put the Crokes boys in the driving seat.  However, the Killorglin boys fought back and got on top during the second quarter of the game.  A point from a free was soon followed up with a goal.  While all this scoring was going on Matthew Moynihan and Anthony Keogh (captain) were proving too much to handle in mid-field.  Senan Lavery, Jonathan Cleary and Brian Murphy were on top of their opponents.  At half-time the score stood at 4-0 to 1-1 in Crokes favour.

 Strong words during the break sent the Dr Crokes team out with fire in their bellies.  Indeed, their performance improved dramatically.  Anthony Cronin seemed to be involved in everything and took a brace of scores.  First, he crashed the sliothar to the back of the net and followed this with a cracking point.  Anthony finished off this flurry with another well taken goal.  John Ivory snatched another goal, his second for the evening.  Then Cian Ó Lionárd took a long-range point on his ciotóg.  Aodán Burns was chasing everything around the middle of the pitch to win a lot of possession for the Crokes team, which he turned into valuable ammunition for the forwards to use.  Gearóid Coughlan was a tower of strength in the back line a drove out many a Killorglin attack.

 John Ivory completed his hat-trick with another goal.  Dave O’Connor was the next to score.  He drilled a great shot past the keeper for another goal.  Graham Fleming followed with a looping ball over the keeper’s head to score another brilliant goal.  Captain, Anthony Keogh added to his tally with another goal.  Gavin O’Shea was playing well all night.  At one stage he pinned the Killorglin back line on their end-line.  When they eventually got room to take a swing at the ball, Gavin was there with a tremendous and brave block.  He found himself out on the wing at an acute angle to the goal.  However, he slotted the ball between the uprights to gain a point for the Crokes.  Lawrence Byrnes had another brilliant game and was a safe pair of hands when the ball came in his direction.  Christopher Buckley worked hard in the forwards and was unlucky not to score on a number of occasions.  If Alex Goggins started the night’s scoring, he finished it also with another great goal.  The game over and Dr Crokes banked another win with a score of 12-3 to 1-1.

 Next week these hurlers will meet Duagh, who are also unbeaten in this year’s competition.  While both teams have already qualified for the semi-finals, each will want to maintain their unbeaten record.

 Foireann: Graham Fleming, Jonathon Cleary, Senan Lavery, Cian Ó Lionárd, Lawrence Byrnes, Gearóid Coughlan, Anthony Keogh (captain), Gavin O’Shea, Aodán Burns, Dave O’Connor, John Ivory, Alex Goggins, Cillian Fitzgerald, Anthony Cronin, Christopher Buckley.

UNDER 12 HURLERS

The trip to Kilgarvan was always going to be a defining game for this Dr Crokes under 12 team.  Kilgarvan would be looking for revenge for their defeat in the Division 4 final last year.  That game went to two periods of extra time to decide the outcome.  However, this time Kilgarvan had the home advantage.  A big question was posed to these young hurlers.

 Dr Crokes had most of the opening play.  The sliothar hit the upright and skimmed just wide on a number of accessions.  Would these near misses be regretted later on?  At last, Aodán Burns slotted over a well-taken point.  But, a lapse in concentration let the Kilgarvan forwards through unchallenged and they took full advantage to score a goal.  Cillian Fitzgerald pounced on a loose ball and hit it goalwards, beat the goalkeeper only to see it rebound off the upright.  Aodán Burns banged over another point to reduce the Crokes deficit to one point.  Kilgarvan scored a point of their own and really put it up to the Crokes boys. Then a free was awarded out on the left wing, just inside the halfway line.  Aodán Burns set himself up to take a pot for another point.  However, Anthony Keogh, captain and man of the match, found space in front of goal and about twenty yards out.  He called for the ball and Aodán quickly snapped the ball to him.  He grabbed the ball turned and sent a torpedo that found the back of the Kilgarvan net.  Crokes were ahead for the first time by the narrowest margin 1-2 to 1-1 and the half-time whistle went.  Senan Lavery, Paul Clifford and Cian Ó Lionárd were stalwarts in the Crokes defence, while up front, Niall O’Riordan, Anthony Cronin and Gavin O’Shea were playing well.

 Crokes knew that they would have to play better in the second half if they were to continued undefeated in this year’s county league.  Both teams started well and played some great hurling, although, the scores just would not come.  Then Gavin O’Shea, who has been a regular on the score sheet opened the second half scoring with a cracking goal.  Anthony Cronin blasted a point over in real style.  Meanwhile, Graham Fleming was having a stormer in goal.  He cleared several shots on goal and his puck-outs gained great distance for the Crokes.  Cillian Fitzgerald completed the day’s scoring with another well-taken point.  Lawrence Byrnes, as usual, scooped up everything that came his way and drove back down the field.  He pulled a lot of ball out of the air and shows great potential.  Brian Murphy was a revelation on the night and cleared a lot dangerous Kilgarvan attacks.  He was ably assisted by Matthew Moynihan.  Up front Alex Goggins, John Ivory, Chris Buckley and Dave O’Connor played some stylish hurling.Foireann: Graham Fleming, Senan Lavery, Paul Clifford, Cian Ó Lionárd, Lawrence Byrnes, Matthew Moynihan, Anthony Keogh, Aodán Burns, Gavin O’Shea, Niall O’Riordan, Anthony Cronin, Cillian Fitzgerald, John Ivory, Dave O’Connor, Brian Murphy, Alex Goggins, Christopher Buckley.

UNDER 12 HURLING REPORT

 Dr. Crokes v Rathmore (played May 13th)

A third victory on the run and the Crokes boys are showing great form in the county league.  The opposition last week was Rathmore.  Crokes got off to a slow start.  However, a well-taken point by Cian Ó Lionárd, started an avalanche of scores.  Cillian Fitzgerald pounced on an accurate pass from Gavin O’Shea to slot the ball to the back of the Rathmore goal.  Dave O’Connor and Gavin O’Shea swung on a loose ball and hit the ball at the same time to rattle the net for a second time.  Next on the score-sheet was Aodán Burns, who added another goal to the Crokes tally.  In the closing minutes of the first half, Dave O’Connor hammered home another goal, which was followed by a long-range strike from Cian Ó Lionárd that dipped over the Rathmore goalkeeper’s head to end up in the back of the net.  This gave Crokes a total of five goals and one point and Rathmore were kept scoreless due to sterling work in the backs by Paul Clifford, who is improving with every match and Jonathan Cleary, who played his best hurling on the night. 

Rathmore came out strong in the second half and got a quick goal.  This sparked the Crokes team back into action.  It was not long before Anthony Cronin blasted the sliothar high over the bar for a point and followed up with a goal.  Gavin O’Shea was in scoring form and grabbed another goal.  Crokes scored a brace of points in quick succession, two by Aodán Burns and one by Anthony Keogh.  Rathmore got a point themselves before Graham Fleming finished the scoring with a goal.  The final score was 8-5 to 1-1 in Crokes favour.  Matthew Moynihan played well in mid-field and as usual, Lawerence Byrnes and Kieran O’Donnell had good games in the backs.

This Saturday we meet Kilgarvan away.  This will be the toughest opposition that the Crokes boys will meet this year.  They will be out to avenge their defeat in last year’s final.  It will take top performance from the full panel to keep this year’s unbeaten run intact.

UNDER 12 HURLING

GAME VERSUS CROTTA, 6 MAY 2005

The under 12 hurlers put in another excellent display of hurling in their second game of the county league.  The outcome was another decisive victory, this time against Crotta O’Neills and the margin 8-4 to 0-1.

First on the score-sheet was Aodán Burns who banged over an excellent point from out the field.  Crotta came back to level scores with a well-taken 65.  After that it was all Dr Crokes.  Aodán Burns rattled the net with a goal, which was followed by a marvellous goal by Niall O’Riordan, who played an excellent game.  Anthony Cronin pulled off a cheeky goal sending in a daisy-cutter, which rattled the side netting just inside the post.  Though playing against a strong breeze, the Crokes boys were in charge.  The backs were on top throughout, with Senan Lavery, Cian Ó Lionárd and Kieran O’Donnell keeping their opposite numbers under wraps.  Paul Clifford played some of his best hurling throughout this game.  Captain, Anthony Keogh and Brian O’Shea were in command at mid-field.  The first half was wrapped up, with a fantastic goal by hard-working Cillian Fitzgerald.

The second half was as fruitful as the first, with the Dr Cokes boys on top all over the pitch.  Anthony Cronin was first off the mark with another well taken goal.  This was followed by a goal from Cillian Fitzgerald, who worked hard all night.  Aodán Burns was back on the scoreboard with another point from midfield.  Lawrence Byrnes received an injury at this stage of the game and had to come off, having put in a “man of the match” performance.  In the back line Jonathan Cleary and Alex Goggins were dominant and kept their opponents under wraps.  Brian Murphy was playing skilful hurling in the forward line.  Dave O’Connor, playing in the backs made a journey forward and was rewarded by a great goal. A front-line combination of Gavin O’Shea and John Ivory worked very well together and picked up where they left off in the last game against Austin Stacks.  However, this time their hard work paid off.  First, Gavin made the score of the night.  Pushing out to the sideline he won a battle for the ball, sidestepped his marker a slotted a sweet ball from an acute angle over the bar.  John Ivory battled hard to win ball in front of goal and rattled the back of the net with a mighty shot.  In between these scores, captain Anthony Keogh, dominated in midfield, shot over a long-range point.  Matthew Moynihan in goal had a solid game and allowed nothing past his goal.  He provided a great service of ball from his puck-outs

This was another great result, which keeps Dr Crokes to the fore of the league.  Next up is a trip to Rathmore for our first away game this Friday.  The bus will leave at 6.00pm sharp.  Rathmore have had good results in their recent games and will provide another good test for the Crokes lads.  However, this group of hurlers should be confident after a great start to the season.  Training continues on Wednesday at 6 o’clock.Foireann:  Matthew Moynihan, Senan Lavery, Lawrence Byrnes, Cian Ó Lionárd, Kieran O’Donnell, Anthony Keogh (Cap), Brian O’Shea, Niall O’Riordan, Aodán Burns, Anthony Cronin, Cillian Fitzgerald, Gavin O’Shea, Dave O’Connor, Paul Clifford, Alex Goggins, Graham Fleming, Jonathan Cleary, Brian Murphy, John Ivory, Caolán O’Donoghue.

U16 Win East Kerry Championship Div 1

Dr Crokes 4-21, Rathmore 1-3.
 
Our U-16 team had a very easy victory over Rathmore in the East Kerry Championship final. This win completed a five in a row for the club at this grade. The result of this game was never in doubt as the Crokes were in control right from the throw-in. Despite shooting over a dozen wides in the first half the team led by 1-12 to 0-1 at half time. The highlights of the first half were provided by Johnny Buckley, Jamie Doolan, Daithi Casey and TJ Cronin who kicked some fine points. Rory Mangan stroked a 45m free over the bar with the greatest of ease. The goal in the first half was finished to the net expertly by Shane O'Neill.
 
The Crokes continued to dominate right through the second half with John Bartlett and Johnny Buckley dominating mid-field and Philip O'Connor gave a fine exhibition of high fielding at centre forward. The half back line of Pat Fuller, Jonathon Clarke and Donal Cronin was outstanding throughout. Michael McMahon led the full back line very well and he made a few of his meandering runs out of defence in the second half. Both Chris Egan and David "Buddy" O'Leary were calmness personified in the corner back positions. David Neeson had a quiet evenings work in goal but he maintained his concentration throughout.
 
The highlight of the evening came with the introduction of Steven Brosnan. After completing a vigorous warm up routine he informed the selectors that he was ready to enter the game. Yes, he blessed himself before entering the game and he got a tremendous ovation from the crowd. Nobody could have foreseen what was to happen in the next 5 minutes. Steven cracked a rasper of a penalty of the crossbar with the Rathmore keeper gone the wrong way, he coolly slotted over a 21m free and as the game drew to a close he smashed the ball into the Rathmore net for the final score of the game.
 
Marie Falvey vice-chairperson of Coiste na nOg East Kerry presented the Cup to the team captain Jamie Doolan.
 
Well done to all concerned particularly the selectors Mike Buckley, Vincent Casey, Matthew Courtney, James Cahillane (Snr) and Der Brosnan.

The team showed great character and responded with two quick goals and from then on the result was never in doubt. Alex O'Sullivan hit three goals, Keith O'Leary and Chris Brady were always a menace to Dingle and Timmy O'Donoghue led the forwards very well. The backs were outstanding once again with Sean Coppinger, Kieran Ward and Keith Buckley prominent.

U-14 County League

Dr Crokes 2-9, Ballymac 4-7.This was a very good performance by our lads and for the second week in a row were unlucky to have tasted defeat. We started the game very well and helped by a goal and a point from Cian Buckley we were leading at half time by 1-5 to 0-2. Ballymac came out strong in the second half and the game flowed from end to end. They say goals win games and Ballymac scored four in the second half this was the deciding factor. Overall we were delighted with the performance and every player played his part. Frank Lavery and Joseph Keogh played well in the full back line. Kieran Ward was back to his best form.
