AIB Munster Club Intermediate Football Championship Semi-Final.

Éire Óg (Cork) 0-12, Templenoe 1-17.

Templenoe have qualified for the Munster Club Intermediate Football Final, following a powerful display that saw them overcome Éire Óg with eight points to spare at Ovens last Sunday. The game was played before a large attendance of 1,777 people on a dry, but chilly afternoon.

Templenoe went into this fixture in the luxury position of having a full panel to pick from and they certainly didn’t disappoint. The visitors chose to play with the strong breeze for the first half and they used their wind advantage superbly. Templenoe immediately laid down a marker, with the lively Stephen O’Sullivan opening the scoring with just 30 seconds played, after he combined with Brian Crowley. Éire Óg replied with their county star Ronan O’Toole showing good determination along the end line to get past the Templenoe defence to level the scoring. However, it would take Éire Óg another 18 minutes before they would add to their tally, with Ronan O’Toole again the provider. In between, it was all Templenoe whose midfield dominance, slick ball movement, clinical finishing and excellent tracking/defending (forcing countless turnovers) saw them hit seven unanswered points courtesy of Stephen O’Sullivan (3), Gavin Crowley, Cian Hallissey and Killian Spillane (2) to make the score 0-02 to 0-08 after 19 minutes of play. Things would not get any better for the Mid Cork side before the break, as they continued to struggle for scores. Templenoe meanwhile drove on with confidence and energy to tag on four more points before the interval, with Tadhg Morley and Teddy Doyle adding their names to the score sheet alongside Killian Spillane and Stephen O’Sullivan. Another noteworthy stat perhaps, is that Templenoe only hit one wide in the first half.

Half Time Score: Éire Óg 0-02, Templenoe 0-12.

Éire Óg introduced their U20 All Ireland medal winner Colm O’Callaghan for the second half, with injury depriving him of a starting place and although he did make an impact, a comeback by the home side never really looked likely. Killian Spillane added two points either side of a fine score from Éire Óg’s Eoin O’Shea to extend Templenoe’s lead to eleven points. But then in the ensuing passages of play the Mid Cork side hit somewhat of a purple patch to outscore Templenoe by four points to one to make the score 0-07 to 0-15 by the 47th minute, with Ciarán Sheehan, Brian Hurley and Daniel Goulding (2) all finding their range. Sandwiched in between was yet another point from Stephen O’Sullivan, who almost goaled after a good ball across the square from Josh Crowley Holland. Killian Spillane and Daniel Goulding traded frees before Adrian Spillane did brilliant to break the ball from the Éire Óg defenders following a speculative pass from his brother Killian to dispatch the ball to the back of the net, for the game’s only green flag. This killed off any faint hopes of an Éire Óg revival, with the visitors restoring the gap to eleven points. The closing minutes of the game saw Templenoe grab one score through Pat Spillane, while Éire Óg had to settle for four consolation scores from Colm O’Callaghan and Daniel Goulding (3), before Referee Alan Kissane blew the full time whistle.

Templenoe will be meeting St Breckans of Clare in Munster Club Intermediate Final, after they overcame Moycarkey-Borris (Tipperary) in the other Semi Final. The final is due to be played on the 1st of December at a venue to be confirmed.

All in all it was a fantastic result for Templenoe, on a memorable weekend for the Club. Well done to all involved and best of luck in the Munster Intermediate Final.
