Templenoe 0-20, Currow 2-6

Templenoe got their Intermediate Championship campaign off to a solid start, although they do have some improving to do after they overcame Currow at a cold and wet Fitzgerald Stadium, last Sunday.

Templenoe who welcomed back the services of county panellists Tadgh Morley, Adrian and Killian Spillane dominated the play from the start and went ahead by 0-6 to 0-0 inside the first 10 minutes. This was despite Templenoe playing against the wind in the first half. The scores came from Killian Spillane (2), Teddy Doyle (a 45), Patrick Clifford with a fisted effort, Brian Crowley from off the outside of his right boot before a neat score from Cian Hallissey put the Kenmare District side in a strong position. Then a long ball in from Currow was gathered by John Buckley who passed the ball across the goal to the in rushing Daniel O’Shea who rose above Templenoe Keeper Anthony Sheehan to fist the ball to the net. Shortly after, John Buckley followed this up with a score of his own to put just two points between the sides. Templenoe responded with Teddy Doyle and Stephen O’Sullivan both splitting the posts, which Currow answered with point from play through Pa McCarthy. This made the score 0-8 to 1-2 after 17 minutes. Templenoe were almost in for a goal when Stephen O’Sullivan was put through by Danny Cahalane, but his effort was well blocked. John Spillane traded scores with Currow’s wing back Seamus Brosnan, before Cian Hallissey had another pointed free for last year’s finalists. The remaining minutes saw a goal bound shot from Pat Spillane saved by Currow Keeper Shane O’Leary, before Mike McCarthy landed a 45 over the bar to bring the half to a close.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 0-10, Currow 1-4.

Both sides had a slow start to the second half with numerous possessions been coughed up. Indeed Templenoe hit 3 of their 13 wides in this time, before they finally registered their first score of the second half after 9 minutes courtesy of Brian Crowley. Currow however were determined to stay in touch and John Buckley was on hand to get a second goal from close range for the St Kierans men, after another long ball in. Suddenly, there was just point in it but Templenoe kept their composure with Killian Spillane adding a few more points (0-1f) either side of a pointed free from Mike McCarthy. Then a great turnover from Teddy Doyle enabled Adrian Spillane to get his first of two consecutive points to put Templenoe ahead by 0-16 to 2-5 after 19 minutes. The last 10 minutes of the half saw Templenoe tag on 4 more unanswered points through Cian Hallissey (2) along with Killian Spillane and Brian Crowley to kill off the Currow challenge. The contest ended with Daniel O’Shea converting a consolation free.
