NCW, KP and Adare maintain perfect starts | Limerick SFC Round II Recap

Two teams are clear in group one while there are four deadlocked on a pair of points ahead of the five week break.

There was a full set of fixtures in round two of the Limerick Senior Football championship which will take a five week break now to allow for the All-Ireland final and the start of the Senior Hurling C’Ship.

After a pair of rounds, there are three teams with a 100% record, Newcastle West and Kildimo Pallaskenry in group one and Adare in the other.

Group 1

In a meeting of round one winners, and a repeat of the West league final, Newcastle West just edged their clash with neighbours St Kierans. The reigning champions dominated the opening half, scoring first seven points which was reduced by one at the half. Kierans did pull whiting two after netting the games only goal but Newcastle held on for a three-point victory.

Kildimo Pallaskeny joined NCW on full points with a hard fought 1-12 to 1-9 win over Oola on Friday evening. Peter Nash had the first goal of the night for the City men but Oola hit back to leave just one between the teams at the interval. Oola did make it a one point game with ten to play but KP held out to maintain their 100% start.

In the rounds final game, Fr Caseys got their first points of the campaign after holding off the challenge of Claughaun in the Bog Garden. The Abbeyfeale men looked comfortable for the opening half only for a late Claughaun goal that made it 0-9 to 1-2. Caseys pulled clear once again but a second goal from the City men had them within three with five to play. The Abbeyfeale men replied with the final four to secure the points.

Round II Results

  • Newcastle West 0-12 : 1-6 St Kierans
  • Kildimo Pallaskenry 1-12 : 1-9 Oola
  • Fr Caseys 0-16 : 2-3 Claughaun

Group Two

Adare made it two from two in the group with a dominant win over round one winners Na Piarsaigh on Friday evening. The West men secured a 1-10 to 0-4 win over the City outfit. In Mungret, Na Piarsaigh started brightly and led 0-4 to 0-2 early on. However they wouldn’t score again, with a Hugh Bourke goal before the half helping them into a 1-4 to 0-4 advantage which they wouldn’t relinquish.

Ballysteen got their season back on track with a 1-14 to 0-13 victory against Galtee Gaels in Ballyagran. Shane Gallagher had the games only goal in the first half that had Ballysteen 1-7 to 0-5 to the good. Round one winners, Gaels, had it back to three with ten to play but the West side hit back to secure a first win of the year to draw level with their opponents.

In the groups other game, Monaleen joined three other teams on two points with a 0-12 to 0-11 win against Ballylanders. The City men got off to the perfect start, as they did against Adare, with an early goal that had them four clear. Four of the next five scores came from Bally with the teams deadlocked at the half. The sides were still level with five to play but Monaleen just had enough to keep their opponents at bay to get off the mark.

Round II Results

  • Adare 1-10 : 0-4 Na Piarsaigh
  • Ballysteen 1-13 : 0-14 Galtee Gaels
  • Ballylanders 0-12 to 1-11 Monaleen
