Brosnan points the way to the last four

Tony Brosnan: Eight points

EIGHT points from sharpshooter Tony Brosnan shot down plucky Templenoe and earned championship specialists Dr Crokes a place in the last four of the Kerry senior football championship.

Edmund O’Sullivan’s side worked hard to carve out a comfortable 1-16 to 0-11 victory with much of the spade work for the victory done from midfield where Johnny Buckley and Mark O’Shea worked tirelessly and with impact.

Templenoe, in their debut season at senior championship level, were well in it int he first half and the scoring prowess of Killian Spillane was troubling Crokes but the Killarney side pulled clear in the second half by which time Templenoe had lost the services of influential Adrian Spillane through injury.

Crokes pulled clear in the final quarter with a 1-3 salvo without reply, the goal coming from the excellent Gavin White whose pace and guile made a huge difference when he was spring from the bench.
