Kerry Petroleum Senior Football Club Championship, Group 2, Round 2.

Templenoe 0-10, Dr Crokes 1-06.

Templenoe sit top of Group 2 of the Senior Club Championship after yet another extraordinary result, where they edged Dr Crokes by one point in a tight contest. This win also means that Templenoe has secured senior status for 2023, which is in itself a brilliant achievement making it four consecutive years at top flight.

The match was played before a large crowd in a sun-drenched Templenoe last Saturday evening. Micheal Burns scored the opening point one minute in. Then Adrian Spillane drove forward for Templenoe, but his effort for a score was deflected out for a 45. Aidan Crowley with a slight breeze behind him converted the 45 to draw the hosts level. In the ensuing eight minutes, Templenoe hit four points on the trot to raise the expectations of the home support. Two of these scores came from Killian Spillane frees and then either of Killian’s frees came inspirational scores from wing backs Patrick Clifford and Gavin Crowley. This made the score 0-05 to 0-01 after ten minutes of play. However, there was no chance Dr Crokes were going to let Templenoe run away with this game, as they slowly started to reel in the Templenoe lead. Two Tony Brosnan frees just ahead of the water break left two points between the sides at the end of the first quarter.

On resumption, Crokes continued their comeback with a brace of points from Cian McMahon to even the scores. The visitors it seemed were weathering the Templenoe storm, with the hosts now struggling for scores. Having said that, the Crokes had chances to push on and create a gap themselves too, but they were misfiring as were Templenoe in front of the goal. Templenoe eventually got a much needed score five minutes before half time to regain the lead courtesy of a Killian Spillane effort from play.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 0-06, Dr Crokes 0-05.

It was all to play for at the start of the second half. Dr Crokes squandered two chances to get back on level terms with one wide and one short, before Stephen O’Sullivan had an effort diverted for a 45. Aidan Crowley once again did the business to put Templenoe two points to the good. Then came the Dr Crokes goal, following a quick team movement catching Templenoe open at the back, with substitute Daithi Casey setting up Cian McMahon who finished the ball perfectly to the net. This put Dr Crokes in front for only the second time in the game. Templenoe refused to panic though with team captain Gavin Crowley taking on the responsibility to score his second point of the day. The game was on a knife edge and both sides had goal chances before the second half water break, with Adrian Spillane going close for Templenoe after one of his trade mark runs, while at the other end Tony Brosnan looked like he might have a goal only for the ball to spill away from him at the crucial moment. Mark Casey edged Templenoe in front again with a well taken score to make it 0-09 to 1-05 at the water break.

Dr Crokes introduced Gavin O’Shea and Cillian Fitzgerald in the final quarter. Michael Potts brought Dr Crokes back level with ten minutes left to play. Templenoe were frantically trying to regain the lead, but their finishing was leaving them down. Templenoe hit a total of 10 wides in the game, while Dr Crokes were even more wasteful hitting 11 wides. But perhaps the defences deserve credit for putting pressure on the kickers. While Templenoe keeper Mark Looney in particular deserves credit for dealing effectively with every ball that came his way. In the end, it took a monstrous free from Aidan Crowley to separate the sides, just four minutes before the final whistle. Well done to all our players and management on this huge win!

Kerry Petroleum Senior Football Club Championship, Group 2, Round 1.

Templenoe 2-12, Austin Stacks 1-08.

A phenomenal performance from start to finish by Templenoe back boned by the return of our county contingent paved the way for another famous win, this time against the reigning Club and County Championship champions Austin Stacks. The game was played at Legion GAA Grounds on Sunday in glorious weather with little or no breeze.

Before throw-in there was a minute’s silence held as a mark of respect for the late Dillon Quirke Tipperary following his sudden and sad passing last Friday evening. Austin Stacks were first off the mark with David Mannix slotting over a free. Stephen O’Sullivan countered, before a long range effort from Templenoe corner back John Rice sailed all the ways over the bar. Killian Spillane added a free to continue the early signs of intent from Templenoe, but Austin Stacks then sent a reminder of how dangerous they can be when their keeper Wayne Guthrie joined the attack to help set up Jack O’Shea who cut in from the right corner to finish the ball to the net. This put the Tralee side one point to the good. To their credit, Templenoe refused to let this unsettle them with Killian Spillane and Sean Sheehan raising another two white flags for the boys in blue, before David Mannix nailed another free. By the end of the first quarter the score was 0-05 to 1-02, but it was clear at this stage that Templenoe were more up for this contest than their opponents. They were playing with more cohesion and purpose throughout the field, which was demonstrated time again with numerous turnovers, well timed tackles and intelligent use of the ball when in possession. Templenoe finished out the second half superbly to outscore the Stacks by 1-04 to 0-00.  Stephen O’Sullivan and Killian Spillane tagged on two points to precede the highlight of the game, when Stephen O’Sullivan vigilant to a short kick out from Wayne Guthrie, caught the ball and executed a precision lob that dipped into the net for as a good a goal as one will ever see. Two more points from Stephen one from a free and one from play saw Templenoe going in soaring ahead at the break.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 1-09, Austin Stacks 1-02.

At the restart, Austin Stacks knew that they had a fight on their hands, they made a few switches and came out all guns blazing, but they were finding Templenoe hard to breakdown. David Mannix had a brace of points to reduce the margin to five early in the second half. Then Kerry captain Joe O’Connor got forward and hit blistering shot which was well saved by net minder Mark Looney. Had they buried that goal chance, there would only be two points separating the sides with 23 minutes still to play. Instead it was Templenoe who powered on again with Stephen O’Sullivan somehow finding a way through the Austin Stacks defence, before offloading a perfect pass across the face of the goal for Josh Crowley Holland to palm home. This made the score 2-09 to 1-04 with 39 minutes on the clock. Stephen O’Sullivan added another point to his impressive tally soon after. However, the county champions were not going to give up and hit back with two well taken scores from Jack O’Shea and Sean Quilter. Aidan Crowley playing in his first senior club game for Templenoe, proved he wasn’t fazed by the occasion with two calmly struck points late on. Austin Stacks launched a few speculative balls in towards the Templenoe square towards the end of the game, but were unable to find a route to goal and had settle for a point from Gearoid Fitzgerald. Their task got even harder when they lost Eoghan Carroll to a black card for the remainder of the game. David Mannix did convert one last free for the Stacks, but there was to be no denying Templenoe who were full value for this win and will no doubt take great encouragement from this result. Well done to all the players and management.

County Senior Football League, Division 2, Round 11.

Laune Rangers 1-17, Templenoe 2-10.

Templenoe lost out to Laune Rangers by four points in the final round of this year’s county league last Friday evening in Killorglin. With both teams already safe from relegation, but out of contention for promotion prior to this contest, the game perhaps unsurprisingly lacked excitement, although there was a steady flow of scores.

On a glorious evening for football, both teams wasted no time finding their shooting boots with Eoghan Hassett and Stephen O’Sullivan trading two scores each in the opening 4 minutes. Indeed Stephen O’Sullivan was on fire for the visitors in the first half. He added another point to his tally before he bagged two well taken goals to put Templenoe 0-03 to 2-03 up by the 11th minute. Stephen Daly had a score for Laune Rangers in between, before two points on the trot from David Mangan and Daniel Macbeth helped to slightly soften the blow of Templenoe’s two green flags. For the remainder of the first half it was pretty much score for score. Templenoe had points from Stephen O’Sullivan (2) and Colin Crowley (2), while Laune Rangers produced white flags from David Mangan, Eoghan Hassett (2) and Eoin Clifford. Then just before the half time whistle came the turning point when the Templenoe defence under strong pressure from the Rangers attack struggled to clear their lines from inside the box and the referee awarded a penalty. John Tyther neatly converted the spot kick to reduce the margin to the minimum.

Half Time Score: Laune Rangers 1-09, Templenoe 2-07.

Buoyed by their goal just before the break, Laune Rangers started the second half on the front foot, with a long ball to Daniel Macbeth who called the mark and duly obliged with his effort. Stephen O’Sullivan briefly restored Templenoe’s one point advantage, however this would be the last time the visitors had the lead. Laune Rangers then hit purple patch with four answered points courtesy of Patrick Carey, John Tyther, Shane Doona and Gabriel Griffin to make the score 1-14 to 2-08 mid way through the second half. Brian and Colin Crowley (f) responded with two hard earned scores for Templenoe. This put just the one point between the sides with seven minutes left to play. However, coming into the home straight, Laune Rangers just had that bit more in the tank with Calum Moriarty, John Tyther and Patrick Carey tagging on three more points to safely close the game for the hosts.

Final Score: Laune Rangers 1-17, Templenoe 2-10.

County Senior Football League, Division 2, Round 10.

Templenoe 2-06, John Mitchels 0-07.

Templenoe’s place in Division 2 of the County league is secure for another year, after the hosts overcame John Mitchels by five points last Saturday evening.

The match was played in miserable weather conditions and it was John Mitchels who had the aid of a strong wind for the first half. John Rice opened the scoring to draw first blood for the hosts five minutes in, following good build up play. Niall Sheehy countered with a white flag for the visitors, before Stephen O’Sullivan cut loose at the other end fisting a ball across the square that was finished to the net by Josh Crowley Holland for Templenoe’s first goal. Mitchels wasted quite a few chances in the first half, but Shane O’Connor did pull one back for them to make the score 1-01 to 0-02 after nine minutes of play. Soon after Stephen O’Sullivan restored Templenoe’s lead to three points, before John Mitchels hit five unanswered points courtesy of Stephen Bowler, Mikey Kelliher (f), Cian Holden, Niall Sheehy (f) and Shane O’Connor to give John Mitchels a two points cushion going in at the break.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 1-02 John Mitchels 0-07.

Josh Crowley Holland pointed for Templenoe immediately after the restart, but there was to be no further score for the remainder of the third quarter. John Mitchels had the more of the possession and were winning most of the breaks, but crucially they were failing to make it count on the scoreboard. A break away attack for Templenoe in the 48th minute saw Josh Crowley Holland combine with Colin Crowley, with the latter fouled inside the square and penalty was awarded. Brian Crowley stepped up and slotted the ball home. From there on the result was never in doubt. Further scores were added by Mark Casey, Colin Crowley (f) and Stephen O’Sullivan (f) for the hosts, to comfortably close out the game.

Final Score: Templenoe 2-06, John Mitchels 0-07.

Well done to all the players and management on retaining our Division 2 status despite a rocky start, losing our first three matches and our player numbers were tight for many of the games also. There remains one more county league game to be played away to Laune Rangers, before attention turns to the club championship.

County Senior Football League, Division 2, Round 9.

Castleisland Desmonds 2-07, Templenoe 1-10.

A pointed free from Colin Crowley shortly before the referee blew for full time secured a share of the spoils for Templenoe away to Division 1 bound Castleisland Desmonds last Saturday evening. Fair to say the visitors gutsy performance over the hour of football deserved no less. This result also puts Templenoe in with a good chance of staying up in Division 2 with just two more county league games remaining

Templenoe had the advantage of a strong breeze for the first half and they used it excellently in the first quarter to race into 0-00 to 1-06 lead by the 14th minute. Stephen O’Sullivan opened the scoring with a free, then the two Crowley brothers Brian and Colin (f) both landed long distance efforts to put Templenoe three points to the good. A minute later came Templenoe’s goal in a move that stemmed from a Colin Crowley sideline, the ball broke to Jason O’Shea who was starting his first competitive game for the Templenoe seniors, his shot hit the base of the post. Templenoe quickly recycled and Stephen O’Sullivan showed great skill to finish  the ball to the net after been put through on goal. The visitors consolidated their position with further scores from Brian Crowley, Stephen O’Sullivan and Josh Crowley Holland to complete the dream opening quarter. Adam Donoghue opened Castleisland Desmonds account with a badly need score in the 15th minute. Colin Crowley did nail another free for Templenoe shortly after, but Castleisland were now starting to come more into the game. Luke Lyons added a second point for the hosts and then came Desmonds first goal following a patient build up which ended with Cian W O’Connor dispatching the ball to the net. Two converted frees from Adam O’Donoghue reduced the margin to just three point ahead of the interval.


Half Time Score: Castleisland Desmonds 1-04, Templenoe 1-07.


It was all to play for, the breeze did die down a bit for the second half, but the question was could the visitors hold out against the likely fightback from the hosts. The Desmonds hit a wide and a short just after the restart, before Colin Crowley put over another placed ball for Templenoe. Then there was goal mouth action at both ends with Desmonds Adam O’Donoghue forcing a save from Mark Looney, while Templenoe’s Stephen O’Sullivan saw his effort for a second goal come off the upright. The Desmonds made another burst at goal with substitute Pat Fitzgerald attempting a pile driver, his shot was blocked, but the referee deemed the block illegal and a penalty resulted. Adam O’Donoghue made no mistake with the spot kick to make the score 2-04 to 1-08 after 41 minutes of action. Credit to Templenoe, similar to the Beaufort game the previous week they answered the setback with a score of their own immediately after with Colin Crowley slotting over another free. However, the game did look like it might slip from Templenoe’s grasp when points from Adam O’Donoghue and Maurice Hickey levelled the scores by the 52nd minute. In the ensuing passages of play, Templenoe (2) and Castleisland (1) both had wides, before Luke Brosnan put the Desmonds in the ascendancy for the first time to make for an exciting finish. There was time for one last Templenoe attack and they used the ball well to draw a foul from the Desmonds defence for the unerring Colin Crowley to grab the equalizer.

Final Score: Castleisland Desmonds 2-07, Templenoe 1-10.


Castleisland Desmonds: Adam O’Donoghue 1-03 (1-00p) (2f), Cian W O’Connor 1-00, Luke Lyons 0-01, Maurice Hickey 0-01, Luke Brosnan 0-01, Adam Donoghue 0-01

County Senior Football League, Division 2, Round 8.

Templenoe 1-11, Beaufort 1-09.

Templenoe earned another two valuable county league points at home against Beaufort on a damp evening in round 8 of the competition. Ironically, it was the hosts first win on home soil in this year’s county league. Templenoe had to do it the hard way though, trailing by five with eleven minutes of normal time remaining, but credit to the players they kept battling, and came good when it mattered most to defy the odds.

Beaufort started the brighter with Sean O’Brien and Liam Carey putting them two points to the good inside the opening five minutes. Beaufort dominated the exchanges in the first quarter but failed to make it count on the scoreboard, hitting at least five wides in this spell. At the other end, Templenoe had chances too, but their efforts were either dropping short or going wide. Liam Carey with a point from play and a point from a mark extended the visitors lead to four points, before Templenoe finally raised their first white flag of the evening through Sean Sheehan twenty minutes in. Further points immediately followed with Stephen O’Sullivan and Aidan Crowley both landing frees to make it 0-03 to 0-04 after twenty-three minutes. Beaufort upped the ante again to pull three points clear courtesy of Kieran Dennehy and Ronan Murphy, but Templenoe were keeping with them and responded with Aidan Crowley slotting over his second free.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 0-04, Beaufort 0-06.

Shortly after the restart, Colin Crowley brought Templenoe back to within a point of the visitors kicking a lovely long range score. The game then entered another period of stalemate, but this time it was mostly Templenoe that were guilty of squandering chances up front. Beaufort’s Fergal Hallissey made no such mistakes with two converted frees in the 41st and 44th minutes. Stephen O’Sullivan eventually ended Templenoe scoring drought with a free to reduce the margin back to two points mid-way through the second half. Soon after the match took a dramatic turn, when Beaufort were awarded a penalty after Sean O’Brien was adjudged to have been fouled. Centre forward Danny Healy dispatched the spot kick with aplomb to make it 0-6 to 1-08. The hosts reply was imminent with Sean Sheehan using his experience well to calmly pop over a point and keep the home side in contention. Stephen O’Sullivan added another free, but then Beaufort substitute Jonathan Kissane looked to have sealed Templenoe faith with point to make it 0-08 to 1-09 with only five minutes of normal time left to play. Then came the fight back, with Kieran McCarthy getting forward to split the posts, before a great team move started by Stephen O’Sullivan ended with a fist pass across the square with Josh Crowley Holland rising highest to palm the ball to the net. Suddenly the score was 1-09 apiece. Templenoe sensed blood and less than a minute later Brian Crowley put the hosts in front for the first time after 57 minutes of play. Beaufort came close to equalizing, but it just wasn’t their night, Aidan Crowley secured the win with the last kick of the game from a placed ball.

Final Score: Templenoe 1-11, Beaufort 1-09.

County Senior Football League, Division 2, Round 7.

Glenbeigh/Glencar 1-06, Templenoe 0-17.

A very good all round team performance saw Templenoe deservingly come away from Glenbeigh with two valuable County League points last Sunday.

Templenoe had wind advantage for the first half on a fine afternoon for football with the visitors playing excellently in the opening period, lording it midfield and leading by 0-00 to 0-06 after just eight minutes of play. Mark Looney converted a 45 after a Stephen O’Sullivan shot at goal was deflected out over the end line. Then Stephen O’Sullivan himself planted two frees over the bar either side of a Daniel Crowley white flag, before a brace of points from the in form Colin Crowley completed the perfect start. It took 14 minutes for Glenbeigh/Glencar to register their first score, which came courtesy of a Caoilim Teahan effort. But the home side were now starting to get their hands on more possession and they followed this up with three unanswered points from Tommy Cahill (f), Darren O’Sullivan (f) and Dara Casey to reduce the margin to just two points by the 23rd minute. However, Templenoe regrouped quickly with Stephen O’Sullivan firing over two points from play to keep the sides at arm’s length, to which Glenbeigh/Glencar responded with Daniel Griffin and Adrian O’Connor splitting the posts.

Half Time Score: Glenbeigh/Glencar 0-06, Templenoe 0-08.

With only two points between the sides and with the second half to play, it was anyone’s game. Templenoe started the brighter again after the restart with Brian Crowley and Daniel Crowley restoring their lead to four points. The game was then blown wide open when a Glenbeigh/Glencar free came off the top of the post, Tommy Cahill reacted quickest and was fouled to earn the hosts a penalty. Cahill calmly dispatched the spot kick and suddenly there was only a point between the sides after 36 minutes. Little did anyone think especially with the introduction of Gavan O’Grady minutes later, that this would be Glenbeigh/Glencar’s last score of the game. Good defending, positioning, tracking, ball retention combined with composed and patient play up front all formed the basis for Templenoe to run out eight points winners. The visitors shooting was very good throughout only hitting 4 wides compared to 10 for Glenbeigh/Glencar. Between the 44th minute and the final whistle Templenoe hit seven points without reply from Colin Crowley (3), Adrian Crowley (3) (2f) and Daniel Crowley. Glenbeigh’s cause was not helped when they lost Liam Roche to a black card in the 54th minute, but there was no doubting that Templenoe were full value for their win. With four more rounds of the county league still to be played, this result and performance was a timely boost to Templenoe’s hopes of survival in Division 2.

Final Score: Glenbeigh/Glencar 1-06, Templenoe 0-17.


Glenbeigh/Glencar: Tommy Cahill 1-01 (1p) (1f), Adrian O’Connor 0-01, Dara Casey 0-01, Caoilim Teahan 0-01, Darren O’Sullivan 0-01 (1f), Daniel Griffin 0-01.

County Senior Football League, Division 2, Round 6.

Templenoe 0-11, Kilcummin 2-13.

Templenoe faced table toppers Kilcummin at home in round 6 of the County League last Saturday evening. Two second half goals set the visitors on their way to maintain their 100% record, with six wins out of six. Credit to Jack O’Connor and his selectors though, they did release two of our County players Gavin Crowley and Killian Spillane for this fixture

The game was played on a glorious evening with a big enough crowd in attendance. Stephen O’Sullivan opened the scoring with a pointed free for the hosts, but Kilicummin immediately responded with Paul O’Shea causing problems for the Templenoe defence early on. O’Shea who was deployed at full forward hit three points in the first five minutes forcing Templenoe to adapt a sweeper system to curve his influence. In between, Templenoe’s Stephen O’Sullivan added a second free. There wasn’t much between the sides in the first half, but Kilcummin did look the more dangerous going forward. Noel Duggan and Killian Spillane exchanged frees mid-way through the first half, before Dara O’Callaghan and a fine score from Kevin McCarthy put the visitors three points clear. Killian Spillane then showed his class with wonderful score from a difficult angle just before the break.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 0-04, Kilcummin 0-06.

Kevin McCarthy and Killian Spillane traded scores again just after the restart. Then came the game’s first goal from Kilcummin with Philip O’Leary finishing perfectly after he was played through by Kevin McCarthy. Noel Duggan instantly followed this up for the East Kerry side with a point from play, to make the score 0-05 to 1-08 after 34 minutes of action. Aidan Crowley responded with a well taken score for the hosts. Templenoe needed more however and they nearly did so when a smart team move ended with Colin Crowley getting inside the defence from the right corner only to see his effort go agonisingly across the face of the goal. A green flag for the hosts at that stage would have reduced the margin to two points. Kilcummin heeded the warning and launched a high ball into their danger man Paul O’Shea, who was adjudged to have been fouled in the square with the referee awarding a penalty. O’Shea expertly converted the spot kick to extend their lead to eight points and there really was no way back for Templenoe from there. The hosts did have more goal scoring opportunities later on, but it was just not to be on the night. Kevin McCarthy added further scores to his tally, before Mark O’Shea chipped in with a brace of points of his own. While Killian Spillane kept the scoreboard ticking over for Templenoe with a few placed balls and a mark in between. The game ended with Shane McSweeney and Mark Looney from a 45 exchanging scores before the referee blew for full time.

Division 2, County Senior Football League, Round 5.

Listry 1-06, Templenoe 1-06.

Templenoe and Listry shared the spoils after a disappointing encounter in Listry last Sunday. All in all a draw was probably a fair result, with both sides equally guilty of poor shooting and coughing up possession throughout which made for a low scoring contest.

The game was played in dampest conditions and the home side went into an early lead with the opening score from a Joe Clifford free. Templenoe responded quickly with Brian Crowley venturing up the field to cancel out his effort. However, then Listry started to get on top, putting Templenoe on the back foot. A long range free broke kindly for the Listry corner forward Sean O’Sullivan who was at the right place at the right time to pull on the ball to the net. The hosts consolidated their position with two points on the trot from Gearoid Murphy and Aaron O’Shea to make the score 1-03 to 0-01 after 12 minutes of play. To compound matters for the visitors, Templenoe then lost John Rice to injury. He was replaced by Joseph Sheehan, who in fairness acquitted himself well. Scores were hard to come by in the second quarter, Colin Crowley earned a mark and duly obliged with his effort in the 21st minute, before Danny Cahalane pointed from an acute angle to reduce the deficit to a goal just before the interval.

Half Time Score: Listry 1-03, Templenoe 0-03.

The second half continued in the same vein as the first half with scores few and at times far between. But Templenoe were starting to grow in confidence when Stephen O’Sullivan converted a free to leave just the two points in it with 37 minutes played. Micheal Keane replied with Listry’s first score in 27 minutes. Very soon after the game was put in the melting pot with Stephen O’Sullivan finding the net for Templenoe, after a superb ball into him from Josh Crowley Holland. The sides were now tied at 1-04 apiece. The next ten minutes saw both sides exchanging a few wides and turnovers. Then in the 50th minute a Sean Lehane free edged the hosts back in front, but Templenoe’s response was instant with Aidan Crowley although under pressure managed to swing his shot over the bar. More wides followed from both teams, before a pointed free from Colin Crowley put Templenoe in front for the first time with only two minutes of normal time remaining. However, there was six minutes of injury time to be played and Listry’s John Foley showed nerves of steel to fire over the equalizer just ahead of the final whistle.

Final Score: Listry 1-06, Templenoe 1-06.


Listry: Sean O’Sullivan 1-00, Joe Clifford 0-01 (1f), Gearoid Murphy 0-01, Aaron O’Shea 0-01, Micheal Keane 0-01, Sean Lehane 0-01 (1f), John Foley 0-1.

County Senior Football League, Division 2, Round 4.

Annascaul 0-14, Templenoe 3-10.

Templenoe recorded their first win in the County league following an entertaining encounter away to Annascaul last Saturday evening. With both teams losing their opening three matches in the league, this game was seen by many as critical, in the survival stakes. Much remains to be done of course, but Templenoe will take encouragement from this result. 

Annascaul had the wind to their backs for the first half and struck the opening score of the game courtesy of James Crean straight from throw in, to put them in front for the first and only time in this contest. Then two minutes later, Templenoe’s Colin Crowley found himself one on one with the keeper and he made no mistake with the finish for the visitors first goal. Buoyed by this, Templenoe put together some great passages of play to hit five unanswered points with Brian Crowley, Josh Crowley Holland, Danny Cahalane, Aidan Crowley and Stephen O’Sullivan all finding the range to make it 0-01 to 1-05, after 13 minutes of play. Credit must also go the Templenoe defence with Kieran O’Neill and company not putting a foot wrong in this period and answering every question that was asked of them. Jason Hickson converted a free to pull one back for the home side, but then Templenoe hit them with another sucker  punch, when Aidan Crowley combined with Stephen O’Sullivan who fisted home from close range for their second goal. Annascaul were now nine points adrift, but they did rally somewhat before the break to fire over three points on the trot through Jack Farrell (2) and David O’Brien.

Half Time Score: Annascaul 0-05, Templenoe 2-05.

Annascaul continued where they left off and a comeback looked possible when the impressive James Crean (2) and Killian Falvey reduced the margin to just three points, after 36 minutes of play. Templenoe had now gone seventeen minutes without scoring, before Brian Crowley helped settle the nerves with a much needed point for the visitors. Colin Crowley added another, but Annascaul remained determined and responded with two more scores from James Scanlon and James Crean. At times in the second half, Templenoe were sloppy with their possession and matters got worse when Stephen O’Sullivan was dismissed for a second yellow card offence. However, when they needed to most, Templenoe were able to dig deep and tag on scores. Sean Sheehan, Brian Crowley and Aidan Crowley (free) helped steady the ship for the visitors to put them ahead 0-10 to 2-10 by the 50th minute. Annascaul fought back though with two scores of their own from David O’Brien and James Hanifan, before the game was then finally put out of reach when Josh Crowley Holland played the ball through for Daniel Crowley to bag the visitors third goal. The hosts threw everything at Templenoe in the remaining minutes, but the Templenoe defence stood tall and in the end, Annascaul had to settle for two late points from Jason Hickson and Killian Falvey.

Final Score: Annascaul 0-14, Templenoe 3-10.


Annascaul: James Crean 0-04, Jason Hickson 0-02 (2f), Jack Farrell 0-02, David O’Brien 0-02, Killian Falvey 0-02, James Scanlon 0-01, James Hanifan 0-01.
