Kerry Petroleum Senior Football Club Championship, Group 2, Round 3.

Kerins O’Rahillys 0-13, Templenoe 1-10.

A deserved draw against Kerins O’Rahillys sees Templenoe finish top of group 2, the only team unbeaten in the group. As their reward, Templenoe will have home advantage to Dingle in the semi-final next weekend. This another fantastic achievement for the club, with the players continuing to raise the bar. Templenoe also reached the semi-final stage last year of course, but this is the first time the team topped their group in this competition.

The match was played in Strand Road before a large crowd on yet another glorious day. It was a good open and entertaining game of football with both sides attacking at every opportunity. Templenoe started brightly with Stephen O’Sullivan from a free and Killian Spillane from play opening the scoring. Then three points on the trot from the boot of Jack Savage (2f) put the Narries in front for the first time 14 minutes in. But there was never more than one point separating the sides in the second quarter. Killian Spillane with a mark and Stephen O’Sullivan from a free briefly edged Templenoe ahead to make the score 0-03 to 0-04 after 17 minutes. After that the points starting coming thick and fast for the remainder of the first half with Kerins O’Rahillys tagging on another four points courtesy of Gearoid Savage (f), Jack Savage from a 45 and a free and veteran David Moran. While Templenoe replied promptly each time with Sean Sheehan (m), Gavin Crowley and Killian Spillane all splitting the posts.

Half Time Score: Kerins O’Rahillys 0-07, Templenoe 0-07.

Kerins O’Rahillys were in more need of result than Templenoe, all be it that the visitors did not have a semi-final spot fully secured going into this contest. At the restart. O’Rahillys immediately pulled two points clear with Barry John Keane fisting ball the over the bar, before Jack Savage added another from a placed ball. Templenoe did reply with Sean Sheehan raising his second white flag of the day in the 36th minute to cut the deficit to one point, but it would take Templenoe another eleven minutes before they would eventually get their next score. Kerins O’Rahillys meanwhile were hitting a purple patch and had the next three in a row all coming from their sharp shooter Jack Savage, one from play and two from frees. This made the score 0-12 to 0-08 after 46 minutes and put the hosts in a strong position going into the final quarter. Templenoe fearing that this game was beginning to slip introduced a few subs, including the welcome return to action of Cian Hallissey in a bid to stem the tide. Killian Spillane thumped over a much needed score from a free, to keep the hosts in the contest. Then in the 28th minute came the game changer, when a high ball in from Gavin Crowley was tipped down by Josh Crowley Holland to Killian Spillane, who clinically finished the ball to the net. The sides were now level for the 7th time, but there remained a few minutes for either side to grab a winner. Jack Savage did nail one more free for the hosts, but Adrian Spillane was in no mood to finish second best and he duly equalized shortly before the full time whistle. Well done to all our players and management on securing a semi-final spot and topping the group
