Kerry boss looking for improvement as Kingdom work hard for 6-point quarter final victory.
It was a decisive win in the end for Jack O’Connor’s U21 side who scored 1-17 to see off Clare’s 2-8.
There were strong performances from the forwards including 1-1 from Matthew O’Sullivan, 4 points by Sean O’Shea and 3 points from substitute Killian Spillane.
However, Clare’s strong runners showed up some frailties in the Kingdom defence, speaking with Radio Kerry’s Tim Moynihan, Jack O’Connor was relieved at the final result.
In the night’s other match there was extra-time, three red cards and a late comeback at the Gaelic Grounds as Limerick beat Tipperary.
The results mean that next Wednesday 15th, the Kerry U21’s travel to Dungarvan to face Waterford while Cork host Limerick in Páirc Uí Rinn.
The final is set to be played on Wednesday 29th.
