There were victories for the under 19s and under 17s over the Kerry League while the under 15s and u13s suffered defeats to St. Patrick’s Athletic over the week-end.
The Academy under 19s defeated the Kerry league 6-1 at the Carlisle grounds last Sunday.
Kevin Williams put the visitors ahead on six minutes. The home side responded well and forced an equaliser when the ball went in off Brian O’Regan as he was under pressure from Luke Nolan with Kerry keeper Alex O’Connor unable to prevent the ball from crossing the line before he gathered it.
O’Connor then saved brilliantly from Dowling in the 34th minute. A minute before the interval, Luke Nolan crossed from the right to Dowling who saw his header saved by O’Connor. On the stroke of half time Dowling fired a left foot drive beyond the diving keeper to put the Academy side ahead.
Jamie Crilly fired home the third on 70 minutes. Three minutes later Alex Rafferty headed home from a Luke Nolan corner on the right. Substitute Jake Ellis rounded off a comprehensive victory with goals in the 76th and 84th minute.
