Dr Crokes 4-18, Templenoe 1-15. 

A depleted Templenoe made the trip to Lewis Road, Killarney last Friday evening to take on the reigning County League Division 1 Champions. As expected, Dr Crokes proved too strong, but Templenoe gave a credible performance scoring a respectable 1-15, even though a shock result never looked likely.

Stephen O’Sullivan got this high scoring game underway with a point from play straight from throw in. John Spillane doubled Templenoe’s advantage, before Brian Looney opened the home side’s account. The visitors continued their bright start to this contest with Stephen O’Sullivan and John Spillane adding to their tallies, either side of a pointed free from Jordan Kiely. This put Templenoe 0-4 to 0-2 ahead after 7 minutes. However, in the ensuing passages of play, Dr Crokes were relentless in attack and hit 2-3 without reply with the goals coming from Jordan Kiely and Billy Courtney, while they had points from Chris Brady, Jordan Kiely and Brian Looney. Templenoe were now facing an uphill struggle and they attempted to find their way back into the game with scores from Pat Spillane and Stephen O’Sullivan, but then they were dealt another hammer blow, when Jordan Kiely showed great skill to fire home his second goal. Worse was to follow for Templenoe when the Crokes followed up two points from Chris Brady to grab their fourth goal of the day courtesy of Billy Courtney for his second green flag. The home side were now thirteen points clear, with 10 minutes still to play in the first half. Things were looking very bleak for the visitors, but to their credit they kept plugging away and in the 22nd minute Stephen O’Sullivan brilliantly struck home a penalty after he himself was fouled. The half ended with Pat Spillane trading scores with Chris Doncel

Half Time Score: Dr Crokes 4-8, Templenoe 1-7.

The restart saw an exchange of scores between Stephen O’Sullivan and Mark O’Shea to maintain the status quo. Then a long ball in towards the Crokes goal was gathered by the desperately unlucky John Moriarty, who did everything right had his initial effort well saved by Shane Murphy, before he looked to destined to score a goal with his second attempt only to see his shot rocket off the crossbar. Dr Crokes scorer in chief Jordan Kiely slotted over another three points to Templenoe’s two to make the score 4-12 to 1-10 after 45 minutes of action, with the Templenoe scores coming off the boots of Stephen O’Sullivan and Josh Crowley Holland. The free flowing and free scoring nature of the contest continued right to the end with both sides also giving some game times to their subs. Dr Crokes maintained the upper hand though and saw out the game with Jordan Kiely (3), Paul Clarke, Brian Looney and Bryan O’Shea all hitting the target. Templenoe for their part battled bravely and did register five more points in the last quarter to show for their efforts, with Teddy Doyle, Pat Spillane (2), Stephen O’Sullivan (2) all finding the range.
