Kerry V Tipperary 2013

For those new to the blog, or who haven’t been here for a while, please find a refresher on the definitions and how the numbers are compiled here

Overall

Team Possessions Shots Shot Rate Scores Success Rate Weighting
Kerry 47 37 79% 21 57% +3.4764
Tipperary 27 19 70% 8 42% -1.843
2012 avg 35.28 27.02 76.6% 13.96 51.67%

Sometimes there is very little that can be added to the bare numbers. Kerry had 74% more possessions & 95% more shots. Their dominance was complete.

Shots from play

Team Shots Scores Success Rate Weighting
Kerry 28 17 61% +4.0449
Tipperary 10 2 20% -1.755
2012 avg 20.14 9.36 46.47%

Tipperary’s shooting from play was abject both in terms of quantity & quality. They didn’t shoot from inside the 20m line until the 28th minute whilst it was the 2nd half before they scored from play.

Kerry’s shooting was very good. To maintain such a high weighting, and Success Rate, whilst reigning in shots is testament of this. One note of caution however would be the quality of the opposition they faced. This is factored into the weighting, to an extent, as they were well ahead for the majority of the game (see here for explanation) however they only faced pressure on 1 of the first 7 shots they took in the 1st half – scoring 6 points. Tipperary started slow and maintained that gear throughout the game.

I Fahey (Tipperary) 1 0 0% -0.558
2012 team avgs 6.88 4.6 66.9%

Anyone who has read the blog for any length will know that one of Kerry’s major weak points is their deadball accuracy. In a game with no real pressure they had a return of 44% and a weighting of -0.569. Below are the combined ’12 Championship & ’13 League returns for games charted. Compare this to Donegal or Mayo’s returns.

    Sometimes the statistics just confirm what the naked eye has seen, and this game was an example.
