Weather yet again disrupts weekend program as St Mary’s go second in Division 1 of the Munster Junior League and Ballincollig move into second place in the Third Division.

St. Mary’s have closed the gap to six points on leaders Kanturk after their 21-19 win over Tralee at Grove Island. The Kerry side led 19-7 at half time with tries from Ciaran Crowley, Feargual O’Nuallain and a penalty try with Crowley converting two of them. Mary’s had tries from Gary Barry and Paudie McMahon and they were also awarded a penalty try. Ben Martin converted all three tries.

In the Second Division Waterford City eased their relegation worries with a 15-5 home win over struggling Killorglin. This result leaves the Kerry side facing a quick return to Division Three, four points off safety with just three games remaining. Darren Walsh scored two tries for Waterford City and John Flynn kicked a conversion and a penalty. Rory O’Shea replied with a try for Killorglin.

Ballincollig moved two points behind leaders Abbeyfeale in Division Three after their 65-3 home win over Scariff. Dave Power scored three of Ballincollig’s ten tries. Danny Gleeson got two and Paudge Flynn, James Kavanagh, Brian O’Mahony, Denis Casey and Dave Lucey scored one apiece. Kevin Doyle kicked six conversions and a penalty. Eoghan Collins kicked a penalty for the Clare side. Ballincollig must now stand a good chance of promotion as they have still a game in hand on their rivals with only three games remaining.

All three games in the Munster Junior Clubs Challenge Cup did not go ahead but two in the Junior Clubs Shield did get played which resulted in an all Clare semi final with Ennis having home advantage to St. Senan’s.
