 Match report: South Kerry League 2nd round, Skellig Rangers 1-14 to Sneem Derrynane 1-4. Playing with the aid of a slight breeze in the first half, Skellig Rangers raced into an early lead with points from Micheal O' Sullivan, Daragh O' Sullivan, Brendan O' Sullivan, Sean Courtney and Bernard Casey. The home side dominated the half and Sneem/Derrynane struggled to score, due to good defensive work from Rangers and the fact the wind was against them. The half ended 0-7 to 0-0.
The second half began with a pointed free from Daragh O' Sullivan and Micheal O' Sullivan made it 0-9 to no score when Morgan O' Donoghoue pointed for the away team. Mike Keating and Ian Galvin exchanged points and Sneem/Derrynane were boosted when they scored a goal from wing forward Denis O' Sullivan despite Padraig O' Sullivan getting a hand to the ball. Sneem/Derrynane began to gain momentum and scored another point to reduce the deficit. However, Rangers overcame that period and had scores from Micheal O' Sullivan again with Daragh O' Sullivan converting two more placed balls. The last kick of the game was a goal for Skellig Rangers after Aidan O' Sullivan played a great pass to Daragh O' Sullivan who in turn handpassed it to his fellow corner forward Micheál O' Sullivan who dispatched it from 12 yards to the sound of the final whistle. Full time score 1-14 to 1-4.
