St Mary’s 2-10, Templenoe 1-9.

Templenoe made the long trip west to take on St Mary’s Cahersiveen in the final round of the County League last Saturday evening. This game was played in wet, windy and misty conditions and in the finish it was the home side who withstood a second half comeback from Templenoe to take a full share of the spoils.

Templenoe who had an extremely strong breeze behind them in the first half, got off to a good start with Killian Spillane splitting the posts from play inside the opening minute. However, St Mary’s responded with the next five points in a row courtesy of Aidan Walsh, Sean Cournane, Liam O’Connell, Brian Sheehan and Jack Daly. This made the score 0-5 to 0-1 after 9 minutes of play. As the rain started to come down, both sides struggled with the conditions which saw possession getting coughed up and point efforts either dropping short or going wide. The visitors eventually registered their second score in the 22nd minute with Killian Spillane again the provider. The remaining minutes of the half saw the hosts increase their advantage with two placed ball efforts from Brian Sheehan along with another score from Sean Cournane. In between corner back John Spillane did land a much needed point for Templenoe, after receiving a pass from Pat Spillane.

Half Time Score: St Mary’s 0-8, Templenoe 0-3.

St Marys extended the lead at the start of the second half with Sean Cournane hitting the target, but ironically Templenoe would go on to give a much better display against the gale force wind than what they produced in the first half when the wind was in their favour. Between the 32nd and the 45th minute Templenoe hit six points on the trot to bring them level with St Mary’s. Tadhg Morley burst up the field to get two well taken scores, while substitute Stephen O’Sullivan was also making an impact popping over two points (1 free). Further scores from Denis O’Neill and Pat Spillane from an acute angle made the score 9 points apiece after 45 minutes. Then a minute later the turning point in the game came when a long point effort from Sean Cournane made its way to the net, to put the Cahersiveen side in the ascendancy once again. Soon after St Mary’s got in for a second goal in a move that ended with Muiris Fitzgerald fisting the ball to the net from close range. Anthony Cournane added a late point for the hosts, before Adrian Spillane cut through the defence for a wonderful goal for Templenoe to bring proceedings to close.
