Kerry have beaten Tyrone in the Allianz Football League semi-final.

The Kingdom hit 5 first half goals on their way to a 6-15 to 1-14 victory which means they are joint League winners for 2021.

Three goals in 10 minutes put Kerry in command. First up was a 6th minute David Clifford penalty
Then Gavin White lobbed home from distance in the 15th minute and less than 60 seconds later Dara Moynihan netted

Kerry had opened up a 3-1 to 0-3 advantage and that's how it stood at the water break. Goal number 4 for Kerry, scored by Paul Geaney, arrived before the half hour mark

That put the Kerry lead at 4-4 to 0-5. Paul Geaney grabbed his second goal in the 35th minute of the half to make it 5-6 to 0-6.

Events of the first half rendered the second period irrelevant in terms of the eventual outcome. Tyrone goaled 7 minutes into the second half but that would be nothing more than a consolation score. Kerry continued to tag on the points, the pick of those being a David Clifford effort from distance out by the sideline in front of the main stand. For good measure Kerry hit the net again, Jack Barry doing so 4 minutes from time.
Next up for Kerry are Clare in the Munster Championship at the end of the month.
