NATIONAL CAMOGIE LEAGUE DIVISION 2A
Kerry 1-11 Cavan 1-2
Kerry took another step towards a possible league semi-final with a convincing win over a newly promoted Cavan side who have yet to register a point in the campaign. In fairness, Cavan were missing their best player in the veteran Niamh Keenaghan, but Kerry lined out without Ashbourne cup winners Rachel McCarthy in defence and Jackie Horgan up front, as well as talented scorer Amy O’Sullivan. Half-time Kerry 0-6 Cavan 1-01. The Crotta Hurling club was well represented on the team by Aoife Behan (wing back). Kerry travel to Derry next weekend having yet to taste defeat this year and with a chance of a League final still well within their grasp. Throw in is Best wishes to the Kerry players and their management.
