Two League Wins for Cordal Seniors

Cordal seniors added valuable points to their league tally after two more victories.

The team is top of the Division 5 league and have won every game this year so far.

In the most recent game Cordal came up against Ballyduff in a mighty clash that saw Cordal having to fight hard against their Ballyduff adversary.

They beat them by just a point with 1-9 to Ballyduff’s 0-11.

Last Sunday under blissful conditions Cordal were up against Ballylongford who had a clean sheet with six SFL wins and were alongside Cordal at the top of the league table.

The game began with a fitting moments silence in tribute to the late Jimmy Roche.

The Cordal team showed great determination and will power in this match. Philip Griffin set Cordal up for a riveting game of football with a goal seconds into the game.

The two Philips added a further four points before Philip O’Connor scored a goal in the tenth minute.

T.J O’Connor was next for Cordal scoring a point. Brian Reidy took every opportunity and achieved two more goals for Cordal in the 14th and 17th minutes.

This stretched Cordal’s lead further. T.J O’Connor and Sean Walsh added two more points to Cordal’s tally before Brian Reidy finished the half up for Cordal with two final points. Ballylongford found it difficult to break Cordal’s offensive march and only successfully broke Cordal’s defences enough times to add three points to their tally while suffering numerous wides. Two of the points were scored by Ciaran O’Connor and the third by Padraig O’Neil. Half time put Cordal eighteen points up at 4-09 to 0-03.

The second half was more balanced with Ballylongford adding 1-6 and Cordal adding 1-9. The final score left Cordal the undisputed winners with 5-18 to Ballylongford’s 1-9.

Cordal/Scart Minors v Killarney Legion

Cordal/Scart kicked off their East Kerry Region League against Killarney Legion last Thursday in a thirteen-aside match.

Both teams hadn’t been in action since the exams but the game was fairly even with a close finish.

Cordal/Scart managed to hold a point over their opponents and were declared the winners with 3-11 to Legion’s 1-16.

Legion had the stronger start kicking four points before Adam Fallon put Cordal/Scart on the scoreboard with a point. Donnacha Daly and David Riordan added two more points before Donnacha Daly added a goal in the 10th minute putting Cordal/Scart in the lead.

Legion were quick to respond with their own goal two minutes later.

Legion added a couple of more points stretching their lead before Kieran Enright put Cordal/Scart back into the game with a goal in the 24th minute. Half time left Legion up by two points with 1-9 to Cordal/Scart’s 2-4.

The second half was just as intense with both teams fighting hard for control of the ball. Cordal equalised with points scored by Adam Fallon and Sean Walsh.

The remainder of the half saw Cordal/Scart doing their best to keep both teams level until Kieran Enright in the 15th minute scored a goal putting the boys in the lead.

Cordal/Scart goalie Cathal O’Donoghue had to work hard keeping Legion out of goals but he did his job well.

In the final minute Legion were awarded a 45 and debate ensued if he should go for goal or a point. The Legion lad took his point and the referee blew the whistle giving Cordal/Scart the deserved win with 3-11 to Legion’s 1-16. Well done boys!
