Templenoe 2-02, Austin Stacks 2-23. 

It was another difficult evening at the office for the Intermediate Champions, suffering a heavy defeat at home to a powerful Austin Stacks side. Templenoe still have four County League games left to play to save their place in Division 1, but it appears they will have to win all four to have any hope of staying up.

Templenoe had the advantage of a strong wind in the first half and although player numbers remain very tight for the home side, they did welcome back the services of Patrick Clifford and Denis O’Neill for this encounter. Darragh O’Brien and Donagh McKivergan opened the scoring for the visitors, before a good team move involving Kieran McCarthy and Denis O’Neill put through Stephen O’Sullivan for Templenoe‘s first goal. The hosts then rocked the Stacks with a second goal, after Stephen O’Sullivan delivered a high ball in towards the goal, that was fisted to the net by the in rushing John Moriarty. This made the score 2-00 to 0-02 after 7 minutes of play. Austin Stacks gradually reeled in this lead with three unanswered points, before the 20th minute. Templenoe though remained competitive in this spell, but were guilty of a few wides, as were the visitors. Then disaster struck for Templenoe, when they were reduced to fourteen players when Stephen O'Sullivan was sent off, and from here on there was only going to be one winner. A goal from Shane O’Callaghan in the 22nd minute set Austin Stacks on their way. They added four more scores before the break, while Templenoe just managed a solitary point courtesy of John Spillane.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 2-01, Austin Stacks 1-09.

The second half was now going to be damage limitation exercise for Templenoe, playing with fourteen men against the breeze and facing an Austin Stacks side intent on turning the screw. By the end of the third quarter, Austin Stacks racked up another six points on the trot to make the score 2-01 to 1-15, with Darragh O’Brien, Shane Carroll (2), Pa McCarthy, Colin Griffin and Micheal O’Gara all finding the range. Things would not improve for Templenoe, who’s only score in the second half came from a placed ball effort from John Rice. Austin Stacks kept their foot on the pedal and before the finish they ramped up the scores, with further points from Ferdia O’ Brien, David Fitzmaurice, Micheal O’Gara and Sean Quilter before Darragh O’Brien crowned off their comprehensive win with a second goal for the visitors late on.
