Rathmore 4-05, Templenoe 0-20

Templenoe came away from Rathmore with two very valuable County League points in a very exciting match played on a dry but very breezy Friday evening.

Templenoe played with the wind in the first half, and got their first score when an early long ball hopped in the square and was added to by Patrick Clifford for a point. Rathmore replied with a free soon after wards, but Templenoe went on to kick four more points in the opening ten minutes. This good spell for Templenoe was halted on the 12th minute when Daniel O’Sullivan scored a goal for the home side, but Templenoe recovered and kicked another brace of points from the boot of Stephen O’Sullivan and Gavin Crowley.

The score on the 20th minute was Rathmore 1-01, Templenoe 0-06, and despite the Templenoe dominance, Rathmore took the lead when a great individual effort by John Moynihan resulted in another goal. Templenoe again gathered themselves, and pointed another four in a row through Brian Crowley, Danny Cahalane, Teddy Doyle and Stephen O’Sullivan to retake the lead. The final minute of the half saw both teams swap a point each leaving the half time score Rathmore 2-02, Templenoe 0-11.

With Rathmore playing with the wind in the second half, the visitors expected to be under more pressure but Templenoe scored the opening two points after the interval. This again gave a comfortable lead of five points but Rathmore responded with a goal by full forward, John O’Keeffe. The intensity of the match started to build up but Templenoe were winning enough ball around midfield to continue to set up attacks. Stephen O’Sullivan pointed a free which was cancelled out by a Brendan O’Keeffe free for Rathmore.

Templenoe added three more points to their tally to again put daylight between the teams, but on the 20th minute Rathmore scored their fourth goal of the match when Donal O’Sullivan slotted home a penalty. This left the scoreline, Rathmore 4-03, Templenoe 0-17 with ten minutes remaining.

John Moynihan kicked a point to reduce the arrears to the minimum, but a lot of the attacks by the home side were being broken up due to some great individual Templenoe defending and a number of important interceptions helped. Templenoe pulled away in the last five minutes with points from Brian Crowley, Killian Spillane and Stephen O’Sullivan. There was a few minutes of injury time played, but despite Rathmore pressing for a goal, Templenoe held out as victors on a score of Rathmore 4-05, Templenoe 0-20
