North Kerry Senior League Div 1B – Round 3
Emmets 1-10 Finuge 1-10
On a bitterly cold evening, Emmets and Finuge shared the spoils after a physical but sporting game of football in Frank Sheehy Park. The visitors started brightly kicking the first score of the game before wing forward Jack Wall got Emmets on the board as both sides proceeded to exchange scores all the way up to the half-time whistle – David Keane, Tom McCarthy and a second point from Jack Wall keeping the home side in touch. Ger Lovett and Pat Corridan were showing well for Finuge and a Gary Hogan goal ensured a three point lead for them at half time. The second half was all about Finuge as they pulled away into a 6 point lead before the Emmets sideline made some important changes introducing the likes of Conor Cox and Cormac Mulvihill who pulled their team back in to the game.
As we approached the full time whistle it was the aforementioned Cox that rescued the game for Listowel with a well taken goal in what was a replay of what happened last week against Desmonds. Emmets will be happy with how they fought back having being so far behind and this bodes well for the lads as they lined out with a young and somewhat inexperienced team.
