Garveys SuperValu County Senior Football Championship, Group 4, Round 1.

Templenoe 1-11, South Kerry 0-14.

The first ever meeting between neighbours Templenoe and South Kerry in the County Championship ended in a draw at Fitzgerald Stadium last Sunday. Templenoe looked to be cruising with a six points lead at the end of the third quarter, however South Kerry dug deep and outscored Templenoe by seven points to one in the remaining fifteen minutes for a deserved share of the spoils.

The opening 10 minutes was a cagey enough affair with neither side really imposing their will on the game. Darragh O’Sullivan planted a 45 over the bar against the breeze, although conditions were drier than expected. Soon after Templenoe were forced to make an early substitution, with Michael Hallissey having to retire injured to be replaced by Tom Spillane. It took 11 minutes for Templenoe to open their account, with Killian Spillane firing over from play with his left boot, before following this up with a pointed free from his right boot two minutes later. Colin Crowley then hit a fine score from distance to extend Templenoe’s lead. South Kerry responded in kind with Daniel Daly from play and Darragh O’Sullivan with an impressive free from over 45 yards to tie the scores again after 21 minutes. The remainder of the first half was tit for tat, Killian Spillane briefly restored Templenoe’s one point advantage with a placed ball, but Daniel Daly countered with a free for South Kerry. Then shortly before the half time whistle Killian Spillane edged Templenoe in front once more, but this was also cancelled out, this time by his County team mate Graham O’Sullivan who raced up the field to grab a well taken point.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 0-05, South Kerry 0-05.

The second half was a more open contest. Tadhg Morley and Stephen O’Sullivan traded scores with Dylan O’Donoghue and Graham O’Sullivan to make the score 7 points apiece after 35 minutes. Then Templenoe hit a purple patch, which started with Mark Casey doing well to pop the ball over the bar, despite the advances of the opposing defence. South Kerry had chances to level, but hit a wide and a short, before a good team move saw Killian Spillane set up Brian Crowley to strike a wonderful goal. Things got even better for them minutes later with Killian Spillane and Tadhg Morley both splitting the posts to make the score 1-10 to 0-07 after 45 minutes. This put Templenoe in a great position to push on for yet another big win for the club, but around this time also Templenoe lost both midfielders - two of their influential players Sean Sheehan and Adrian Spillane to injury, which was a sucker punch for the boys in blue. South Kerry made a few changes and redoubled their efforts to bring Templenoe’s lead down point by point. Jack Daly, Dylan O’Donoghue (3) and Matthew O’Sullivan were all on target to make the score 1-10 to 0-12 after 54 minutes. Templenoe were now on the back foot, but Aidan Crowley did try to steady the ship with a perfectly executed long range free. South Kerry though were growing in confidence and Anthony Cournane reduced the margin to one point again, with just two minutes of normal time remaining, before the in form Dylan O’Donoghue equalized with his fifth point of the day to make the score all square at full time.
