Beaufort 1-08, Templenoe 0-13

On a perfect Friday evening for football, Templenoe travelled to Beaufort and came away with the spoils after a hard-fought win.

Beaufort, who were missing several regulars, started very well and had registered two points in the opening five minutes. Unfortunately, from the home side’s point of view, this period also saw them kick two poor wide’s which was to become a hallmark of their display during the match.

Adrian Spillane registered Templenoe’s first score on the sixth minute which was cancelled out by a Nathan Breen point soon afterwards. Beaufort had two calls for penalties in this period ignored, and from the fifteenth minute onwards Templenoe started to come more into the contest. Three points in the space of five minutes from Adrian Spillane, Killian Spillane and Stephen O’Sullivan had Templenoe in front on the twenty-minute Mark. Pat Spillane had a glorious opportunity going through on goal but narrowly missed the target. Templenoe were also contributing to the wide tally of the match and just added one more point in the half from a Killian Spillane free. Just before the interval, Beaufort goalkeeper, Mike Moriarty made a great save from a Pat Spillane shot to leave the half time score, Beaufort 0-03, Templenoe 0-05.

The home side started the second half in a positive fashion and turned over Templenoe possession on several occasions. Crucially they only scored one point in this purple patch when Nathan Breen pointed. Templenoe rallied and a hat trick of points from Killian Spillane (1 free) in the space of three minutes had the visitors extend their advantage. Beaufort kept trying but their wide total was mounting up while Danny Cahalane and Brian Crowley kicked further points.

Templenoe were leading on a score of Beaufort 0-04, Templenoe 0-10 on the 47th minute and seemed to be comfortable. Beaufort heads hadn’t dropped though, and a Fergal Hallissey point was followed up by the only goal of the match when Jeremiah O’Sullivan added to the flight of a high ball around the square, which finished in the net. Beaufort were energized by this and followed up with a further series of attacks. Ian McGillicuddy and Nathan Breen pointed, but they continued to be wasteful with other opportunities.

The teams were level with five minutes to go when Killian Spillane again pointed for Templenoe. Attacks were swapping from end to end but the defenses were winning out as nerves began to increase. Cian Hallissey who was on as a sub found himself at the end of a sweeping Templenoe move but elected to fist a point when a goal opportunity was on offer. This brought the match into injury time where Cian Hallissey pointed a free. There was just enough time for one desperate Beaufort attack which resulted in Jonathan Kissane point.

The final whistle sounded leaving Templenoe victorious on a score of Beaufort 1-08, Templenoe 0-13

Division 1, County Senior Football League, Round 7.


Templenoe 1-11, Glenbeigh/Glencar 2-9. 

A below par performance from Templenoe saw them lose out at home to Glenbeigh/Glencar last Saturday evening. 

Templenoe opted to play with the strong breeze in the first half, but it was Glenbeigh who opened the scoring with a pointed free from Tommy Cahill. Templenoe responded with four unanswered points through Killian Spillane (free), Brian Crowley (2) and Teddy Doyle. However, the visitors were determined not to let Templenoe get away from them and hit back with a point from play from Dara Casey. The home side did go on to get the next three scores on the trot courtesy of Stephen O’Sullivan, John Rice and Killian Spillane. This made the score 0-7 to 0-2 after 18 minutes of play, but despite been wind assisted, Templenoe failed to add to their tally before the interval and this was to prove costly in the finish. Indeed, by the time the match was over Templenoe hit a total of 11 wides compared to 7 from the opponents. The remaining minutes of the half saw Glenbeigh tag on two more points from Tommy Cahill and Goalkeeper Rory O’Connor who did well to land a 45 over the bar against the strong breeze. 

Half Time Score: Templenoe 0-7, Glenbeigh/Glencar 0-4 

Templenoe had a bright opening to the second half with placed ball effort from Killian Spilliane, before Cian Hallissey put Pat Spillane through for the game’s first goal which gave the home side a 7 points cushion after 36 minutes. Bernard Murphy replied with a point for Glenbeigh and then came the turning point in the match when a goal bound effort from Stephen O’Sullivan was brilliantly saved by the keeper and a counter attack from the visitors saw a long ball kicked into Tommy Cahill who finished the ball to the net at the other end to bring them right back into the game. Glenbeigh were now dominating proceedings and they followed up their goal with the next three points in row with Bernard Murphy, Tommy Cahill and Dara Casey all hitting the target to level the scores at 1-8 a piece after 48 minutes. Matters got worse for Templenoe, when Glenbeigh corner back Michael Walsh reacted fastest to a broken ball, getting there just ahead of Keeper Anthony Sheehan to fist a low ball to the net. Killian Spillane (free) traded scores with Caolim Teahan with just three minutes to play. Templenoe tried hard against a very crowded defence to rescue something from this game, but two injury time points from Pat Spillane and Brian Crowley were not enough to salvage a result. 

Final Score: Templenoe 1-11, Glenbeigh/Glencar 2-9. 


Templenoe: Killian Spillane 0-4 (0-3f), Pat Spillane 1-0, Brian Crowley 0-3, John Rice 0-2, Teddy Doyle 0-1, Stephen O’Sullivan 0-1.

Division 1, County Senior Football League, Round 6.

Spa 2-10, Templenoe 0-17.

Templenoe gained another two valuable points in the County league after they saw off Spa, to end the Killarney’s side’s impressive 100% record in the competition. This was a very entertaining game played in glorious weather at Spa last Saturday evening.

Templenoe had a bright opening to the contest with Brian Crowley and Killian Spillane (free) both hitting the target to open the scoring. However, Spa soon settled and replied in splendid fashion to score 1-4 on the trot. Michael O’Donoghue got their purple patch underway with a pointed free and Spa followed this up with two points from Evan Cronin either side of a David Spillane effort. Then came their first goal after good play from Evan Cronin to combine with Ryan O’Carroll who made no mistake to put the home side ahead by 1-4 to 0-2 after 10 minutes. To their credit Templenoe regrouped quickly and responded admirably to strike five unanswered points. The first of these scores came from Stephen O’Sullivan, before two from Brian Crowley and one each from Killian Spillane and Cian Hallissey (free) brought the visitors back to level terms. The remaining minutes of the half were ebb and flow. Spa restored a two point’s advantage courtesy of Evan Cronin and Michael O’Donoghue, but Templenoe pegged them back through Killian Spillane and Teddy Doyle with the first of his three 45s, after a shot at goal by Stephen O’Sullivan was well saved by Spa Keeper James Devane. This left matters all square at the interval.

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

With the game all to play in the second half, Spa and Templenoe remained even after 38 minutes with Pat Spillane and Michael O’Donoghue trading scores. Then Templenoe opened up a three point’s gap thanks to Pat Spillane with another one of his trade mark long range points, before Teddy Doyle converted his second 45 and then captain Brian Crowley despite been closely watched by the Spa defence added to his tally. Spa hit back with a free from Evan Cronin, but Templenoe went on to consolidate their position with a placed ball effort from Cian Hallissey, before Killian Spillane who was vigilant to a short kick out from Spa duly won possession before popping over another point. This made the score 1-8 to 0-15 after 51 minutes of play. A minute later the match was put on a knife edge once again, after a break away Spa attack saw Ryan O’Carroll get in behind the Templenoe defence to clinically despatch the ball to the net. With just the minimum between the sides coming into the closing stages, Templenoe found another gear to earn two more points from Killian Spillane (free) and Teddy Doyle to complete his exhibition from 45’s. This put Templenoe in a strong position, but Spa kept fighting and two pointed frees from Michael O’Donoghue in injury time brought them back to within one point of Templenoe again. However, Templenoe had enough in the tank to hold on for a deserved win.

Final Score: Spa 2-10, Templenoe 0-17


Spa: Ryan O’Carroll 2-0, Michael O’Donoghue 0-5 (0-4f), Evan Cronin 0-4 (0-1f), David Spillane 0-1.

Division 1, County Senior Football League, Round 5.

Templenoe 2-15, Rathmore 1-12.

Templenoe earned their second win in the county league after overcoming Rathmore by six points in a sun drenched Templenoe last Saturday evening.

The visitors almost got off to the ideal start, but Anthony Sheehan did well to save a goal bound effort from John Moynihan. Then Cian Hallissey and Mark Reen traded scores, before two frees on the trot from county panellist Killian Spillane gave the home side a two point advantage. A minute later, good lead up play by Teddy Doyle who released the ball to Brian Crowley ended with Doyle on hand to palm the ball to the net, after Crowley’s effort was blocked by the keeper. Strangely, Templenoe would not score again until just before the interval, as the East Kerry side starting gaining a grip on proceedings, especially around the middle of the field. Their period of dominance started with a goal from John Moynihan who cut in from the left corner to put the ball passed Anthony Sheehan. This made the score 1-3 to 1-1 at the end of the first quarter. Rathmore went on to follow this up with the next six points in a row courtesy of Shane Ryan, John Moynihan, Mark Reen and Dean Fitzgerald, while Eoin Lawlor and Donal O’Sullivan also got their names on the score sheet. Then the Templenoe forwards finally got their hands on some ball again and scores from Teddy Doyle and Brian Crowley brought them back to within two points at the end of the first half.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 1-5, Rathmore 1-7.

Templenoe had the aid of a slight breeze for the second half, but more importantly they also upped their performance. Three unanswered points from Stephen O’Sullivan, Teddy Doyle (free) and Pat Spillane preceded a second goal for Templenoe through Stephen O’Sullivan. This put the home side ahead by 2-8 to 1-7 after 36 minutes of play. Rathmore replied with scores from Shane Ryan (2) and Mark Reen, either side of a pointed free from Killian Spillane. Pat Spillane added a classic point for Templenoe, but Rathmore hit back with a score of their own from substitute Chrissy Spiers. This left just two points between the sides with seven minutes remaining. Cian Hallissey slotted over a crucial free from the right side, before another point from Stephen O’Sullivan put some more daylight between the sides. Then Teddy Doyle nailed a brilliant free from more than 45 yards out and Templenoe followed this up with a Killian Spillane effort from a placed ball. Rathmore did have one score from Shane Ryan (free) and they tried hard right to the end, but Templenoe had the final say in the contest with a wonderful point from play through Killian Spillane. 

Final Score: Templenoe 2-15, Rathmore 1-12.


Templenoe: Teddy Doyle 1-3 (0-2f), Killian Spillane 0-5 (0-4f) Stephen O’Sullivan 1-2, Cian Hallissey 0-2, Pat Spillane 0-2, Brian Crowley 0-1

East Region U16 League Final Result:

Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane 4-12, Beaufort 2-09.

Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane had a great victory over Beaufort in the Division 6 East Region U16 League Final. They started off brightly scoring the opening point of the match, but Beaufort proved to be the better team through the first half. They created numerous goal chances but crucially only converted one of them. Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane gamely hung on and went in at half time trailing on a scoreline of Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane 0-05, Beaufort 1-05.

Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane started to come more into the match in the 2nd half but everything changed on the 45th minute when they scored two goals within a minute to turn a three point deficit into a three point advantage. Beaufort responded with a point but possibly the most important moment was a goalmouth scramble which saw the ball saved off the Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane line. Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane’s lead was further extended with a goal on the 52nd minute to make the match safe and they added a fourth goal in injury time.

This was a very sporting match by both teams and commiserations to Beaufort who played well throughout. There was plenty of outstanding displays for the victors, but a special mention must go to the Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane full back line who gave a great display of defending. A highlight of the match was some of the high quality block downs on Beaufort point attempts in the second half.

Ciarán O’Sullivan accepted the trophy as team captain. Well done to all involved, including the management of, Brendan O’Sullivan, Michael O’Sullivan, Paddy O’Brien and Eddie O’Sullivan

Dr Crokes 2-13, Templenoe 3-8.

This round 4 county league tie was played in Lewis Road on a fine summer’s evening last Saturday. A gallant Templenoe pushed Dr Crokes all the way and were unlucky to come up two points short in the end.

Templenoe opened the scoring thanks to an effort from Brian Crowley inside the first minute, to which Dr Crokes responded with a point from Alan O’Sullivan. Then Templenoe rocked the Killarney side with 2 goals in quick succession. The first came from Martin Reilly after a superb interception from John Spillane helped pave the way, while the second was finished to the net by Stephen O’Sullivan, who showed great awareness to win possession from a short kick out by the Crokes. The next 10 minutes saw Dr Crokes tag on two unanswered points from Brian Looney and Colm Cooper (free), but Templenoe hit back with one of their own through Stephen O’Sullivan to make the score 0-3 to 2-2 at the end of the first quarter. Dr Crokes got in for their first goal in the 19th minute, when Michael Potts fired home from close range. Then Pat Spillane and Brian Crowley exchanged scores with Colm Cooper (free) and Tony Brosnan, before points from Gavin O’Shea and Colm Cooper (free) brought the scores back to level terms just before the interval. In between Templenoe lost Sean Sheehan to a black card.

Half Time Score: Dr Crokes 1-7, Templenoe 2-4.

Dr Crokes had a bright opening to the second half with three unanswered points from veteran Eoin Brosnan, Alan O’Sullivan and David Shaw. Crokes also almost had goal in this time from Alan O’Sullivan, but his effort struck the crossbar. Templenoe replied with another long range point from Pat Spillane, before Brian Crowley slotted over a free following a foul on Patrick Clifford. Then in the 44th minute, Tony Brosnan restored Crokes lead to two points with a well taken score. Templenoe upped the ante again minutes later with Pat Spillane popping over his third point, before Stephen O’Sullivan put Brian Crowley through one on one with the keeper and Brian Crowley made no mistake with the finish to make the score 1-11 to 3-7 with just 9 minutes remaining. However Crokes don’t do panic and they recycled the ball well to set Brian Looney up for a point to reduce the margin to the minimum. Then a minute later a precision pass from Alan O’Sullivan to substitute Jordan Kiely who gathered the ball near the left corner, before bearing down on goal to dispatch the ball to the net. This gave Dr Crokes a two point cushion and Gavin O’Shea extended their lead to three with a fisted effort, before John Spillane got a consolation score for Templenoe.

Final Score: Dr Crokes 2-13, Templenoe 3-8


Dr Crokes: Colm Cooper 0-3 (0-3f), Michael Potts 1-0, Jordan Kiely 1-0, Alan O’Sullivan 0-2, Brian Looney 0-2, Tony Brosnan 0-2, Gavin O’Shea 0-2, Eoin Brosnan 0-1, David Shaw 0-1

Templenoe 0-12, Kilcummin 1-10.

Templenoe’s search for a first ever Intermediate title continues, after they were edged out by Kilcummin in a tight contest played at Legion GAA grounds last Sunday.

There was a large crowd in attendance for this Semi Final tie and it was Templenoe who played with the wind in the first half that opened the scoring through Killian Spillane inside the 3rd minute. The next 10 minutes saw both sides miss some chances and basically cancel each other out. Among the features in this period was a great defensive shoulder by Gavin Crowley on Gary O’Leary sending him out over the end line, to prevent a likely score for the East Kerry side. However, Kilcummin did eventually open their account on the 12th minute, courtesy of former Kerry Keeper Brendan Kealy who stepped up to land a free over the bar from just inside the 45 yard line. Two minutes later Brian Crowley with a fisted effort traded scores with Kevin McCarthy who cut through from the right corner, before a brace of points from Templenoe’s Brian Crowley, Cian Hallissey (free), Stephen O’Sullivan and Killian Spillane (2) put last year’s finalist ahead by 0-7 to 0-2 after 26 minutes of play. Despite gaining a grip on proceedings, Templenoe were dealt a blow on the 25th minute when Brian Crowley who contributed 2 points from play had to retire with a shoulder injury, although he did subsequently return to action towards the end of the match. Kilcummin finished out the first half strongly with Noel Duggan (free), Kevin McCarthy and Gary O’Leary all hitting the target to reduce their arrears to 3 points just before the interval.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 0-8, Kilcummin 0-5.

Kilcummin started the second half brightly with a pointed free from Noel Duggan. Templenoe had chances to increase their lead in the opening minutes of the second half, but they tended to overdo the passing, while good defending from the opposition also kept them out. Templenoe suffered another setback on the 35th minute, after Patrick Clifford picked up a knock and had to be replaced. Yet, two minutes later Killian Spillane did restore their lead to 3 points with an effort from play. Kilcummin responded with Kevin McCarthy getting his fist onto a high ball from Sean O’Leary to take it over the bar. Both sides were really upping their intensity levels at this stage and then in the 45th minute came the game’s most decisive score when Kevin McCarthy gathered the ball on the wing, before bearing down on goal to dispatch a shot to the net giving Templenoe Keeper Anthony Sheehan no chance. This put Kilcummin in the lead for the first time making the score 0-9 to 1-7.  Although, they lost their corner back Chris O’Leary to a black card, momentum was now with Kilcummin who went on to hit the next two scores in a row thanks to Noel Duggan and Shane McSweeney. In between Anthony Sheehan had to make a good stop from Matt Keane. Having gone 16 minutes without a score Templenoe rallied again in the 54th minute with Killian Spillane and Teddy Doyle both raising white flags from placed balls. This set the game up for a tense finish. Noel Duggan thumped another free over the bar in the 57th minute before Templenoe in a move involving Sean Moriarty, Killian Spillane and Pat Spillane tried to engineer a goal, but the final shot was blocked. An injury time free from Killian Spillane did bring Templenoe back to within a point, but they were unable to win possession from the restart and with that the final whistle sounded.

Final Score: Templenoe 0-12, Kilcummin 1-10


Templenoe: Killian Spillane 0-6 (0-2f), Brian Crowley 0-2, Cian Hallissey 0-2 (0-1f), Stephen O’Sullivan 0-1, Teddy Doyle 0-1.

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.


Templenoe: Pat Spillane 0-4, Stephen O’Sullivan 0-3, Kieran McCarthy 0-2, Cian Hallissey 0-2 (0-1f), Patrick Clifford 0-1

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.

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.
