Templenoe 0-12, John Mitchels 1-9.

A late free from James Duggan earned John Mitchels a share of the spoils in a sporting contest played in ideal conditions at Templenoe last Saturday evening.

Templenoe who lined out minus the services of several regulars, opened the scoring in the 6th minute courtesy of Pat Spillane. Scores were hard to come by in the first 20 minutes with both sides kicking a number of wides and few attempts also dropped short, while Josh Crowley Holland and Stephen O’Sullivan both had goal chances well saved by Mitchels Keeper Dermot Raggett. However, the home side did manage to increase their advantage thanks to scores from Stephen O’Sullivan (2) to put them 0-3 to 0-0 ahead after 18 minutes. Indeed the visitors had to wait until the 22nd minute before they finally got off the mark with a point from play through their Midfielder Shane O’Connor. Templenoe responded with wing back Kieran McCarthy getting up the field to kick two points either side of a long range effort from Pat Spillane. Then somewhat against the run the play a John Mitchels attack saw Alan O’Donoghue give a precise pass to Shane O’Connor who finished the ball to the net to bring the visitors back into the game. The remaining minutes of the half saw a wonderful left legged effort from Pat Spillane from out near the sideline sail all the ways over the bar. Soon after Stephen O’Sullivan fired over another to leave the score at the interval Templenoe 0-8, John Mitchels 1-1.

Templenoe got the second half off to a perfect start with Patrick Clifford getting on the ball to kick a classic point after less than 20 seconds. Mitchels replied with Alan O’Donoghue and Laurence Bastible both splitting the posts from close range. Then James Duggan showed good skill to get inside the Templenoe defence, before popping the ball over the bar. John Mitchels were now controlling matters around the middle of the field and a brace of points from Shane O’Connor, Niall Sheehy (free) and George Bastible saw the visitors take the lead for the first time after 43 minutes of play. The score was now 0-9 to 1-7. The visitors could have got more scores in that time, but they squandered numerous chances. Templenoe meanwhile were putting together some good passages of play, but were finding it difficult to score for much of the second half, before substitute Tom Spillane who was making welcome return helped the home side win a crucial free that was thumped over by Cian Hallissey. Soon after Pat Spillane traded scores with Shane O’Connor, while in between Anthony Sheehan was called upon to make a vital save from Sean Moloney. With less than 5 minutes remaining, Cian Hallissey, looked to have got the winning score for Templenoe, but the Tralee side held their nerve and earned a near in free right at the stroke of time that was duly converted by James Duggan.
