SFC Round Up | Four teams remain perfect after three rounds with battle for third place heating up

The third round of the championship threw up little by ways of surprises over the weekend.

Each of the four teams that began the weekend with a 100% record in the Limerick Senior Football Championship continued in that vein in the third round.

Fr Caseys kicked off proceedings with a comprehensive 0-15 to 0-8 win over Monaleen on Thursday evening in Mick Neville Park.

Caseys kicked the last five scores of the first half for a 0-8 to 0-4 lead at the interval before powering to victory in the second.

Newcastle West joined their West rivals on maximum points when they were similarly comfortable over Galbally.

Mike McMahon plundered a hat trick for the Magpies who were 3-13 to 0-7 winners in the end. Caseys top the table by virtue of a superior goal difference. They don’t meet untl the final round.

In group one’s other game, Claughaun moved into the top three with a 0-13 to 0-8 win over Oola on Sunday evening.

The teams were level at 0-6 apiece at the half but Claughaun outscored the East side 0-7 to 0-2 to take the win.

In group two, St Kierans and Adare moved further clear of the chasing pack with three teams on two points in the race for third.

Kildimo Pallaskenry got their first win in the senior ranks as they blew Ballylanders away in a 3-17 to 3-5 victory.

An early Jimmy Barry Murphy goal gave Landers the advantage before Darren O’Connell and Darragh Deegan turned the tide for KP as they took the lead. A Shane O’Donoghue goal prior to the half had it 2-7 to 2-4 at the interval.

KP scored 1-7 on the trot to start the second half before easing to the twelve point win.

Adare moved into top spot outright on Saturday evening as they beat Ballysteen 0-13 to 1-7 in the Bog Garden.

Cillian Ferris had the perfect start for Ballysteen as his goal was enough for a 1-3 to 0-5 half time advantage.

But Adare were able to chip away at that lead, with Robbie Bourke giving them a third quarter lead that they wouldn’t relinquish.

The following night, St Kierans went level on points with Adare by virtue of their 2-12 to 0-9 victory over Galtee Gaels.

Anthony Molyneaux found the net inside ten minutes with the West side leading by four, 1-6 to 0-5 at the break.

And after the restart, a Seamus Mangan goal all but put the game beyond the Gaels as they remain on two points alongside Ballysteen and Kildimo Pallaskenry.

The fourth round of the championship takes place this weekend with the battle for the final quarter-final place in both groups certainly up for grabs.
