Kerry outclass Clare at Croker


Donnchadh Walsh and Darran O'Sullivan were among the goals as Kerry coasted into the All-Ireland SFC semi-finals, comfortably beating Clare for the second time this summer.

Eamonn Fitzmaurice's side were a class apart from the Banner County and they cruised to a 2-16 to 0-11 win at Croke Park, again a double-digit margin of victory.

Clare did well to keep pace in the opening stages, with the scores level at 0-3 apiece but once Walsh fired in their first goal after 21 minutes, the Kingdom were never going to be caught.

Kerry upped through the gears and a streak of scoring saw them going into the break with a seven-point advantage, a lead which meant the game was effectively ended as a contest.

Clare grabbed three points early in the second period to make an unlikely comeback a possibility but O'Sullivan's brilliant goal - the forward firing a fearsome shot into the top right-hand corner of the net - pulled Kerry well clear again.

Tadhg Morley was black-carded for the 2014 All-Ireland champions in the 44th minute but with the likes of James O'Donoghue and Paul Geaney contributing four and three points respectively, Kerry simply had too many scoring options for Clare to be able to handle.

Fitzmaurice emptied his bench in the closing stages in anticipation of the semi-final on August 28th where Kerry will face either the defending champions Dublin or the 2012 winners Donegal.
