Templenoe 2-11, Kerins O’Rahillys 1-16

Kerins O’Rahillys proved to be too strong for Templenoe in the first round County Senior Football League match played on a dry afternoon in Templenoe GAA Grounds. Both teams were missing players due to injuries and County duties, but there was still plenty of quality on display.

Templenoe were very quick off the mark with a Stephen O’Sullivan point from their first attack, but this was cancelled out by a Tommy Walsh pointed free. The Tralee side added another brace of points, again scored by Tommy Walsh, before a Cian Hallissey point was followed by a well worked Templenoe goal. Teddy Doyle fed in a great foot pass to Cian Hallissey who returned the ball to Teddy who finished to the net.

Kerins O’Rahillys again responded with another Tommy Walsh pointed free and a point from Gavin O’Brien. Killian Spillane kicked a point from play before Cian Hallissey got Templenoe’s second goal when he finished off a quick Templenoe attack to the net. This left the score on the 15th minute mark, Templenoe 2-03, Kerins O’Rahillys 0-05.

The visitors did not let the goals deter them and Gearoid Savage kicked the next three points. Templenoe went ten minutes without a score until Brian Crowley pointed from play. Both teams swapped a point each before the interval leaving a half time score, Templenoe 2-05, Kerins O’Rahillys 0-09

The first ten minutes of the second half witnessed a great period of play for Kerins O’Rahillys and the scored a goal and two points without reply. The goal coming from a Tommy Walsh penalty. Cian Hallissey was the first Templenoe scorer with a point from play. Templenoe then started to enjoy a purple patch, and scores from Brian Crowley (2) and John Spillane saw the side’s level with ten minutes remaining. The match was being played at a great intensity at this stage. Both teams again swapped scores, but two frees scored by Tommy Walsh for Kerins O’Rahillys with five minutes remaining saw a gap emerge. John Spillane scored his second point of the day, but this was cancelled out by another Tommy Walsh free which proved to be the last score of the match.
