Desmonds down Emmets in Co League

Co. Senior League Div 2 – Round 6
Listowel Emmets 1-08 Castleisland Desmonds 0-14

Last Saturday evening Emmets seniors took on table toppers Castleisland Desmonds in Round 6 of the County League in Frank Sheehy Park on a fine evening for football. Desmonds were coming into this with a perfect record so they were certainly looking for the two points here which would put them in a great position in their quest for promotion back to Division 1. Niall Collins opened the scoring for Emmets with a great solo run and put the ball over off his left but it didn’t take long for Desmonds to hit back with two fast points of their own.


Milltown/Castlemaine come out on top

County Senior League Div 2 – Round 3
Emmets 0-10 Milltown/Castlemaine 5-11

In what was literally a game of two halves it was the away side who picked up the two the points as they fired five second half goals in which Emmets had no response. Listowel went in at half-time a point to the good and pit themselves in a good position as they defended well and were accurate in front of goal throughout, with scores coming from David Keane, Lorcan Moloney and four from Conor Cox, three of which were from play. While Emmets were the better team in the first half Milltown/Castlemaine stayed in touch through some good scores from Cathal Moriarty and Jamie O’Shea and this gave them a good base to launch their clinical second half in front of goal.


Emmets too strong for Annascaul in play-off

Junior Premier Championship – Relegation Play-off

Emmets 0-18 V Annascaul 1-08

Our Seniors travelled to Strand Road on Sunday last to contest this vital game which would ensure our Junior Premier status for another year and the lads duly obliged with a dominant display.

The opening quarter was a particularly strong period for the team as they raced into a 0-07 points to 0-01 lead with the lively Lorcan Moloney and Cathal Keane firing over good score’s in between points from Conor Cox and David Keane who raised whites flags both from play and placed efforts.


Emmets and Finuge cannot be seperated

As it usually does this fixture drew a large crowd to Frank Sheehy Park to witness these great rivals do battle in round 3 of the Junior Premier Championship on Saturday evening last.

Within a minute both sides had raised the green flag with Finuge’s John McCarthy cancelling out the excellent Niall Collins’ solo finish at the graveyard end of the ground. Shane Conway and Darragh Shanahan followed up with two good points before Sam Tarrant helped settle things down for the home side with a free. Paul Galvin fired over a free for Finuge from close range three minutes later to put two points between the sides again and it was around this time that Listowel really began to get a foothold on the game with Ger McCarthy and Darragh Leahy turning over some important breaks in the fullback line while Niall Collins and Darren Halpin were getting on plenty of ball out around the middle.
