Templenoe 0-12, John Mitchels 1-9.

A late free from James Duggan earned John Mitchels a share of the spoils in a sporting contest played in ideal conditions at Templenoe last Saturday evening.

Templenoe who lined out minus the services of several regulars, opened the scoring in the 6th minute courtesy of Pat Spillane. Scores were hard to come by in the first 20 minutes with both sides kicking a number of wides and few attempts also dropped short, while Josh Crowley Holland and Stephen O’Sullivan both had goal chances well saved by Mitchels Keeper Dermot Raggett. However, the home side did manage to increase their advantage thanks to scores from Stephen O’Sullivan (2) to put them 0-3 to 0-0 ahead after 18 minutes. Indeed the visitors had to wait until the 22nd minute before they finally got off the mark with a point from play through their Midfielder Shane O’Connor. Templenoe responded with wing back Kieran McCarthy getting up the field to kick two points either side of a long range effort from Pat Spillane. Then somewhat against the run the play a John Mitchels attack saw Alan O’Donoghue give a precise pass to Shane O’Connor who finished the ball to the net to bring the visitors back into the game. The remaining minutes of the half saw a wonderful left legged effort from Pat Spillane from out near the sideline sail all the ways over the bar. Soon after Stephen O’Sullivan fired over another to leave the score at the interval Templenoe 0-8, John Mitchels 1-1.

Templenoe got the second half off to a perfect start with Patrick Clifford getting on the ball to kick a classic point after less than 20 seconds. Mitchels replied with Alan O’Donoghue and Laurence Bastible both splitting the posts from close range. Then James Duggan showed good skill to get inside the Templenoe defence, before popping the ball over the bar. John Mitchels were now controlling matters around the middle of the field and a brace of points from Shane O’Connor, Niall Sheehy (free) and George Bastible saw the visitors take the lead for the first time after 43 minutes of play. The score was now 0-9 to 1-7. The visitors could have got more scores in that time, but they squandered numerous chances. Templenoe meanwhile were putting together some good passages of play, but were finding it difficult to score for much of the second half, before substitute Tom Spillane who was making welcome return helped the home side win a crucial free that was thumped over by Cian Hallissey. Soon after Pat Spillane traded scores with Shane O’Connor, while in between Anthony Sheehan was called upon to make a vital save from Sean Moloney. With less than 5 minutes remaining, Cian Hallissey, looked to have got the winning score for Templenoe, but the Tralee side held their nerve and earned a near in free right at the stroke of time that was duly converted by James Duggan. 

Final Score: Templenoe 0-12, John Mitchels 1-9.

County IFC Round 3, Templenoe V Spa Match Report

Templenoe 2-13, Spa 0-12.

Templenoe went into this match knowing that a 4 point win might be required for them to progress in the Intermediate Championship. The home side rose to this challenge winning by 7 points in an exciting game played before a large crowd in Templenoe last Sunday and they have now qualified for their third successive Intermediate Championship Semi Final.

The match was played in difficult underfoot conditions and Templenoe opted to play with a strong wind in the first half. Templenoe almost had a goal inside the first minute, through Killian Spillane, but his effort hit the post. Spa then worked the ball up the field to open the scoring with a point from play through Midfielder Michael Garnett. A minute later Killian Spillane traded scores with Michael O’Donoghue (free) to leave the home side trailing by 1 point after 5 minutes. The next 5 minutes saw Templenoe play some excellent football with Cian Hallissey expertly striking two frees from the right side and in between Templenoe scored their first goal with a good ball in from Teddy Doyle putting Stephen O’Sullivan through for a well taken goal. Brian Crowley then added 2 points to put Templenoe ahead by 1-6 to 0-2 after just 10 minutes of play. Former County Minor Dara Moynihan got a badly needed score for the visitors in the 14 minute, as they tried to get back in to the game. The next 10 minutes saw Brian Crowley and Cian Hallissey (free) swap scores with Michael O’Donoghue (free) and Michael Foley, before Stephen O’Sullivan added another point to his tally. The half ended with a goal bound effort from Spa saved by Anthony Sheehan. Ciaran Spillane took the resultant 45 short to David Spillane, who popped the ball over the bar.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 1-9, Spa 0-6.

Templenoe increased their advantage with another from play from Killian Spillane inside the 2nd minute of the Second half. However, Spa responded with scores from Ciaran Spillane (45) and Michael Foley. Play was delayed for a time in the second half after Spa wing forward David Spillane to whom everyone wishes a speedy recovery went down injured.

Soon after play resumed Cian Hallissey made no mistake with another placed ball effort for Templenoe. However the Killarney side were not giving up, and two points from Ryan O’Carroll and Michael Foley left just 4 points between the sides 23 minutes into the second half. Templenoe’s passing was a bit sloppy at times in the second half, but they did manage to steady the ship a bit with Teddy Doyle (free) and Brian Crowley putting some more daylight between the sides. The remaining minutes saw 2 points (1 free) from Evan Cronin cut the lead to just four points again, but then the result was beyond doubt when the in rushing Brian Crowley fisted the ball into the net after a good ball across the goal by Stephen O’Sullivan.

Final Score: Templenoe 2-13, Templenoe 0-12


Templenoe: Brian Crowley 1-4, Stephen O’Sullivan 1-2, Cian Hallissey 0-4 (0-4f), Killian Spillane 0-2, Teddy Doyle 0-1.

Full Time Score: Gneeveguilla 0-11, Templenoe 0-10

Templenoe hopes for a County Intermediate title suffered a setback last Sunday following a one point defeat away to Gneeveguilla. This result now means that nothing less than a win at home to Spa next Sunday can save Templenoe chances in the competition and they may need to do so by a few points, pending the outcome of the other match in the group.

Last Sunday’s game was a hard fought encounter and Templenoe started well with Cian Hallissey opening the scoring from a free. However, a fired up Gneeveguilla side determined to prove their worth at Intermediate level replied with scores from Padraig O’Sullivan (free) and Mark Sheehan to give them a lead, they would never relinquish. Uncharacteristically, Templenoe struggled badly for scores throughout the first half, which was not helped by them hitting 7 wide’s and giving away possession cheaply at times. To their credit Gneeveguilla did take the most of the scoring opportunities that came their way and it must also be acknowledged that they won a lot of 50/50 balls as well. Towards the end of the first quarter a goal bound fisted effort from Josh Crowley Holland was cleared off the line before two points from Cornelius Buckley (1 free) extended the East Kerry’s side’s advantage by 0-4 to 0-1 after 20 minutes of play. In between Templenoe’s Adrian Spillane on one of his trade mark runs blasted a low shot just wide of the far post. Instead it was Gneeveguilla that went on to consolidate their position with Patrick Warren and Conlon O’Leary (free) both splitting the posts. All the while the frustration continued for Templenoe before they eventually got their second score courtesy of a pointed free from Killian Spillane. However, it was Gneeveguilla who had the final say in the half with Cornelius Buckley slotting over another free.

Half Time Score: Gneeveguilla 0-7, Templenoe 0-2.

The opening minutes of the second half saw Gneeveguilla increase their lead yet again thanks to a Conlon O’Leary effort from play, before Templenoe finally started to rally getting the next four points in a row to reduce the deficit to just two points. The scores came from Adrian Spillane (2) along with two placed ball efforts from Cian Hallissey and Killian Spillane. Soon after Conlon O’Leary (free) traded scores with Cian Hallissey before Gneeveguilla midfielder Padraig O’Connor popped over a great point to make the score 0-10 to 0-7 at the end of the third quarter. Another sign that this would not be Templenoe’s day came in the 20th minute, when a well struck shot at goal by Stephen O’Sullivan came off the post after he was put through by Brian Crowley. However, the visitors battled on and a pointed free from Cian Hallissey cut the margin again, but Gneeveguilla had no intention of letting this game slip and their next attack saw them recycle the ball well before setting Patrick Warren up for a crucial score. There were a share of stoppages in the second of half with two Templenoe players Kieran O’Neill and substitute Pat Spillane picking up black cards, while Gneeveguilla finished the game with 14 men after Cornelius Buckley was red carded following a high tackle on Brian Crowley late on. Two injury time points from Tadhg Morley and Killian Spillane (free) brought the visitors to within a point of Gneeveguilla. Then amid a frantic finish Templenoe worked the ball all the way up to the field for one last attack. The move ended with Patrick Clifford under pressure from defenders attempting to offload the ball just in front of goal to Adrian Spillane, but referee awarded a free away out to Gneeveguilla. The Ref adjudged Templenoe to have picked the ball off the ground. The home side then cleared their lines and there was time for no more.

Final Score: Gneeveguilla 0-11, Templenoe 0-10


Gneeveguilla: Cornelius Buckley 0-3 (0-2f), Conlon O’Leary 0-3 (0-2f), Patrick Warren 0-2, Padraig O’Sullivan 0-1, Mark Sheehan 0-1, Padraig O’Connor 0-1

Templenoe 0-20, Currow 2-6

Templenoe got their Intermediate Championship campaign off to a solid start, although they do have some improving to do after they overcame Currow at a cold and wet Fitzgerald Stadium, last Sunday.

Templenoe who welcomed back the services of county panellists Tadgh Morley, Adrian and Killian Spillane dominated the play from the start and went ahead by 0-6 to 0-0 inside the first 10 minutes. This was despite Templenoe playing against the wind in the first half. The scores came from Killian Spillane (2), Teddy Doyle (a 45), Patrick Clifford with a fisted effort, Brian Crowley from off the outside of his right boot before a neat score from Cian Hallissey put the Kenmare District side in a strong position. Then a long ball in from Currow was gathered by John Buckley who passed the ball across the goal to the in rushing Daniel O’Shea who rose above Templenoe Keeper Anthony Sheehan to fist the ball to the net. Shortly after, John Buckley followed this up with a score of his own to put just two points between the sides. Templenoe responded with Teddy Doyle and Stephen O’Sullivan both splitting the posts, which Currow answered with point from play through Pa McCarthy. This made the score 0-8 to 1-2 after 17 minutes. Templenoe were almost in for a goal when Stephen O’Sullivan was put through by Danny Cahalane, but his effort was well blocked. John Spillane traded scores with Currow’s wing back Seamus Brosnan, before Cian Hallissey had another pointed free for last year’s finalists. The remaining minutes saw a goal bound shot from Pat Spillane saved by Currow Keeper Shane O’Leary, before Mike McCarthy landed a 45 over the bar to bring the half to a close.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 0-10, Currow 1-4.

Both sides had a slow start to the second half with numerous possessions been coughed up. Indeed Templenoe hit 3 of their 13 wides in this time, before they finally registered their first score of the second half after 9 minutes courtesy of Brian Crowley. Currow however were determined to stay in touch and John Buckley was on hand to get a second goal from close range for the St Kierans men, after another long ball in. Suddenly, there was just point in it but Templenoe kept their composure with Killian Spillane adding a few more points (0-1f) either side of a pointed free from Mike McCarthy. Then a great turnover from Teddy Doyle enabled Adrian Spillane to get his first of two consecutive points to put Templenoe ahead by 0-16 to 2-5 after 19 minutes. The last 10 minutes of the half saw Templenoe tag on 4 more unanswered points through Cian Hallissey (2) along with Killian Spillane and Brian Crowley to kill off the Currow challenge. The contest ended with Daniel O’Shea converting a consolation free.

Legion 1-13, Templenoe 1-17.

Templenoe gained their first two points in the County league after a four point win away to Legion, in what was a very entertaining game last Sunday.

The match was played in ideal conditions and it was Templenoe that raced into a 1-2 to 0-0 lead after 6 minutes. Stephen O’Sullivan opened the scoring, before Pat Spillane struck a low shot to the net following a great solo run towards the goal. Brian Crowley added a second point to give the visitors a dream start. Shortly after, Conor Keane showed good determination to register Legion’s first score. Templenoe maintained control though, with their quick and direct play seeing them go on to earn the next four points in a row thanks to Cian Hallissey (free), Patrick Clifford with a fisted effort, Teddy Doyle (long range free), and Pat Spillane from play. This put Templenoe in a commanding position at the end of the first quarter as they lead by 1-6 to 0-2. Both Keepers Anthony Sheehan and Conor McCarthy were called upon to make great saves from Conor Keane and Stephen O’Sullivan respectively during the course of the first half. Jamie O’Sullivan (free) and Stephen O’Sullivan traded scores, before it was Legion’s turn to hit a purple patch getting five unanswered points through the boots of their danger men Jamie O’Sullivan (0-4) and Conor Keane (0-1). Templenoe responded with Pat Spillane once again splitting the posts, before Jamie O’Sullivan slotted over another free for the Killarney men following a foul on Padraig Lucey. This ensured the game was still all to play as the first half drew to a close.

Half Time Score: Legion 0-9, Templenoe 1-8.

Templenoe also started the second half brightly with Brian Crowley and Teddy Doyle reasserting the visitors position with the first two scores following well worked moves. Jamie O’Sullivan meanwhile continued his exhibition at the frees as he popped over Legion’s opening score of the half, before John Spillane and Brian Crowley (0-2) both showed good composure to consolidate Templenoe’s lead once more. However, Legion then started to get a grip on proceeding again with Jamie O’Sullivan adding two more points (0-1f) to his tally either side of a goal from Conor Keane, who made no mistake after he found an opening in the Templenoe defence after Legion forced a turnover. This made the score 1-12 to 1-13 at the end of the third quarter and the game was now on a knife edge. Cian Hallissey (free) and Pat Spillane helped steady the ship for the away side with two crucial scores, but Legion replied with a pointed free from Jamie O’Sullivan to keep the contest in the balance. Legion were almost in for another score only for vital interception from Patrick Clifford. Soon after Templenoe got the ball into Stephen O’Sullivan who worked very hard all through to earn a free, this was duly converted by Brian Crowley to put a bit more daylight between the sides. However, Legion refused to throw in the towel and they had one last frantic move up the field, which also saw Cian Hallissey receive a black card for Templenoe. At the end of this attack, Legion were awarded a free about 20 yards from goal and up stepped Jamie O’Sullivan who hit a blistering shot only to see it rocket against the crossbar. Templenoe then regained position of the ball and lifted the siege with substitute Martin Reilly taking advantage of the Legion defence been caught out of position, to win one last free in for Brian Crowley to thump over.

Final Score: Legion 1-13, Templenoe 1-17


Legion: Jamie O’Sullivan 0-11 (0-9f), Conor Keane 1-2.

Templenoe 1-8 Dromid Pearses 1-13

Dromid Pearses proved too good for Templenoe in the final of the South Kerry league played in Sneem, on a bitterly cold afternoon last Saturday.

Dromid Pearses opened the scoring inside the 2nd minute with a pointed free from Niall O’Shea. Templenoe’s response was emphatic with a well worked move involving Sean Moriarty and Pat Spillane to put through Stephen O’Sullivan, who finished the ball to the net from close range. Then shortly after the same player Stephen O’Sullivan converted a free to extend their advantage. However, Dromid Pearses hit back with the next three scores in a row, the first of which was a goal from Midfielder Niall O’Connor after a good ball in from Shane O’Connor. The other two scores came courtesy of a pointed free from Chris Farley and a Dilan O’Donoghue effort from play, to put Dromid ahead by 1-3 to 1-1 after 14 minutes. Brian Crowley (free) and Dilan O’Donoghue exchanged scores, before a superb long range effort from John Rice brought Templenoe back to within a point. The last ten minutes of the half were very competitive, with Pat Spillane, Stephen O’Sullivan (free) and Danny Cahalane trading scores with Chris Farley (free) and Niall O’Shea (free) to leave matters all square at the interval:

Half Time Score: Templenoe 1-6, Dromid Pearses 1-6.

Dromid Pearses quickly opened up a two point lead in the second half, with scores from Chris Farley (free) and Thomas Curran. Brian Crowley replied with a pointed free for Templenoe, but from there on it was all Dromid Pearses as they went on to hit the next four scores in a row. Chris Farley continued his unerring accuracy from frees, by popping over two more points, while Dilan O’Donoghue added another score from play, before Gearoid J O’Sullivan did well to get inside the Templenoe defence to fist the ball over the bar. This put Dromid Pearses ahead by 1-12 to 1-7 after 28 minutes. Templenoe tried hard to set up goal scoring opportunities, but they could find no way through a resolute Dromid defence and ultimately they had to settle for just two points in the second half, with Pat Spillane getting their second and last score of this period. Gearoid J O’Sullivan rounded off proceedings with a well taken point for Dromid Pearses, after which the final whistle sounded.

Final Score Templenoe 1-8, Dromid Pearses 1-13.

Templenoe 2-11, Kerins O’Rahillys 1-16

Kerins O’Rahillys proved to be too strong for Templenoe in the first round County Senior Football League match played on a dry afternoon in Templenoe GAA Grounds. Both teams were missing players due to injuries and County duties, but there was still plenty of quality on display.

Templenoe were very quick off the mark with a Stephen O’Sullivan point from their first attack, but this was cancelled out by a Tommy Walsh pointed free. The Tralee side added another brace of points, again scored by Tommy Walsh, before a Cian Hallissey point was followed by a well worked Templenoe goal. Teddy Doyle fed in a great foot pass to Cian Hallissey who returned the ball to Teddy who finished to the net.

Kerins O’Rahillys again responded with another Tommy Walsh pointed free and a point from Gavin O’Brien. Killian Spillane kicked a point from play before Cian Hallissey got Templenoe’s second goal when he finished off a quick Templenoe attack to the net. This left the score on the 15th minute mark, Templenoe 2-03, Kerins O’Rahillys 0-05.

The visitors did not let the goals deter them and Gearoid Savage kicked the next three points. Templenoe went ten minutes without a score until Brian Crowley pointed from play. Both teams swapped a point each before the interval leaving a half time score, Templenoe 2-05, Kerins O’Rahillys 0-09

The first ten minutes of the second half witnessed a great period of play for Kerins O’Rahillys and the scored a goal and two points without reply. The goal coming from a Tommy Walsh penalty. Cian Hallissey was the first Templenoe scorer with a point from play. Templenoe then started to enjoy a purple patch, and scores from Brian Crowley (2) and John Spillane saw the side’s level with ten minutes remaining. The match was being played at a great intensity at this stage. Both teams again swapped scores, but two frees scored by Tommy Walsh for Kerins O’Rahillys with five minutes remaining saw a gap emerge. John Spillane scored his second point of the day, but this was cancelled out by another Tommy Walsh free which proved to be the last score of the match.

Templenoe 1-16, St Michaels / Foilmoe 1-03

Templenoe ran out comfortable winners after they hosted St Michaels/Foilmore in round 2 of the South Kerry league last Sunday.

The game was played in wet conditions and both sides were slow to settle, with numerous possessions been coughed up in the early stages. Templenoe soon started to get on top around midfield and in the 6th minute they got off the mark with a pointed free from Cian Hallissey from the right wing. More scores followed for the home side with Cian Hallissey adding two more points (one free) to his tally, while Brian Crowley made no mistake with two frees from the left side.  St Michaels/Foilmore had to wait until the 24th of the match to register their first score, when their midfielder DJ Moran landed a 45 over the bar. The remaining minutes of the half saw Luke O’Shea convert a close in free for the visitors, before Brian Crowley (free) and John Rice restored the lead to five points for Templenoe.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 0-7, St Michaels/Foilmore 0-2

Templenoe hit the ground running in the second half with Danny Cahalane cutting through the defence for well taken score. St Michaels/Foilmore responded with a pointed free from DJ Moran. However, it was then when the home side really started to ramp up the scoring with John Rice, Cian Hallissey, Danny Cahalane (twice) and Brian Crowley all hitting the target to put Templenoe ten points ahead with 9 minutes remaining. Soon after veteran Shane Cremin who came in as sub, did well to finish the ball to the net after a long ball in from John Spillane for the game’s first goal. Stephen O’Sullivan (0-2) and John Spillane both raised white flags for Templenoe in the closing minutes, while St Michaels/Foilmore got in for consolation goal through Luke O’Shea.

Castleisland Mart Club Intermediate Football Championship Final

Templenoe 0-14, An Ghaeltacht 1-12

Templenoe came up just short, despite putting in a heroic shift in the Austin Stack Park last Sunday against a much fancied An Ghaeltacht side.

An Ghaeltacht started the brighter and indeed almost had a goal in the first minute with PJ. Mac Láimh forcing a save from Anthony Sheehan, but play was subsequently called back for an earlier infringement and Dara Ó Sé made no mistake with the free. The West Kerry side tagged on their second score in the 6th minute when Sean M O’Conchúir popped the ball over the bar from the right corner. It took 9 minutes for Templenoe to register their first score through a Killian Spillane free, after Brian Crowley was fouled. The Kenmare District side followed this up with two more points in quick succession from Killian Spillane and Stephen O’Sullivan to give them a slender lead. However, An Ghaeltacht responded promptly with two more Sean M O’Conchúir efforts (1 free) to restore their advantage, before Teddy Doyle levelled matters again towards the end of the first quarter to make score 0-4 to 0-4. Then in the 16th minute came the first and only goal of the game, which was to prove crucial in the finish, when An Ghaeltacht worked their way through the Templenoe defence in move that ended with Sean M O’Conchúir dispatching the ball to the net. To their credit, Templenoe did reply well to this with 2 more scores from Teddy Doyle and Killian Spillane (free) either side of a pointed free from Dara Ó Sé. Soon after PJ Mac Láimh raised another white flag for An Ghaeltacht, before Templenoe went close with two goal chances through Brian Crowley and Cian Hallissey only to see their efforts saved and hit the side netting respectively. The half ended with Dara Ó Sé  and Cian Hallissey trading frees to leave the score at the interval: Templenoe 0-7, An Ghaeltacht 1-7.

Templenoe started the second half quite well. Josh Crowley Holland had a goal bound shot saved from Tomas Mac an tSaoir, before Killian Spillane got the opening score of the half from a free, following a foul on Gavin Crowley. However, An Gaeltacht hit back with Brian O’Beaglaoich going on the attack twice to set up Dara Ó Sé  for two (1 free) more points. The game was really turning into an end to end contest at this stage. Killian Spillane swapped scores with PJ Mac Láimh before Stephen O’Sullivan split the posts after Teddy Doyle picked him out with a quick 45 to leave the score 0-10 to 1-10. Then in the 53rd minute Tomas Mac an tSaoir was called upon once again to deny another shot at goal from Josh Crowley Holland. Momentum was now with Templenoe, who were never going to give this game up without a fight and their subsequent determined play which included an inspirational block down from Tadgh Morley saw them level the scores thanks to points from Killian Spillane (free), Pat Spillane and Cian Hallissey to set up a nail biting finish. An Gaeltacht edged ahead again on the 60th minute with a well taken score from Substitute Gearoid Mac an tSaoir, but Templenoe remained composed with Tadgh Morley calmly lobbying the ball over the bar to tie the game up again. However, there was still a few minutes of injury time to play as both sides tried frantically for the winner and the ball soon broke An Gaeltacht’s way with PJ Mac Láimh getting in to fist the ball over the bar. Templenoe did have one final attempt at a score, but the West Kerry side got numbers back to prevent a fisted effort from Brian Crowley from going over and once An Gaeltacht regained control of the ball, they were able to close the game out by carefully guarding possession for the remaining seconds of the match.

Templenoe 1-12, Laune Rangers 2-6

Templenoe are through to the Intermediate final for the second year in a row after they overcame Laune Rangers by three points in a wet and windy Fitzgerald Stadium last Saturday.

Laune Rangers opened the scoring with a long range point from Peter Crowley after two minutes. However, Templenoe quickly settled and went on to get the next six points in a row. The first of these scores came from their captain Brian Crowley who showed good determination to pop the ball over the bar after his initial effort was blocked. Both midfielders Adrian Spillane and Sean Sheehan were next to get on the score sheet, before a good move involving Killian Spillane and Cian Hallissey put through Stephen O'Sullivan for their fourth point. Killian Spillane added two more points to leave the score Templenoe 0-6 Laune Rangers 0-1 after 17minutes. Then the Killorglin side finally started getting back into the game with more ball going into their forwards. Colm O'Shea converted a free in the 18th minute for their second point. Laune Rangers could have reduced the deficit further, but they squandered a few chances including a close in free. Nonetheless, the Mid Kerry side did have the final say in the half with another pointed free from Colm O'Shea. Half Time Score: Templenoe 0-6, Laune Rangers 0-3.

The second half turned out to be a bit of a roller coaster. Templenoe started the half brightly with a point from Killian Spillane, before Danny Cahalane blasted the ball over the bar to extend the Kenmare District side's lead. The next 10 minutes of the game belonged to Laune Rangers as they started to put the Templenoe defence under pressure. Mike Frank Russell landed a ball over the bar from way out for their first score of the half. Then Templenoe keeper Shane Cremin was called upon to make a great save from David Costello, after the Rangers opened up the Templenoe defence. However, Laune Rangers persistence soon paid off when their defender Patrick Carey broke through the Templenoe cover to dispatch the ball to the net for their first goal. Things got worse for Templenoe when Adrian Spillane had to leave the field with a shoulder injury. Momentum remained with Laune Rangers and they subsequently went ahead with points from Mike Frank Russell and Peter Crowley, to leave score 0-8, to 1-6 at the end of the third quarter. With the match now on a knife edge, Templenoe quickly worked the ball up the field in a move that ended with Josh Crowley Holland popping over a great point from a tight angle to level the scores. Then the all important goal for Templenoe came when a low shot from Pat Spillane took a slight defection to catch the goalie wrong footed. Shorty after Cian Hallissey split the posts to extend their lead. Laune Rangers though were not finished and high ball in from Mike Frank Russell bounced kindly for David Costello, who was on hand to fist the ball to net. This put the game in the melting pot once again, but Templenoe kept their composure and went on to close out the game with two more points from the boots of Cian Hallissey and Gavin Crowley.

Final Score: Templenoe 1-12, Laune Rangers 2-6.
