Dr Crokes 2-13, Templenoe 3-8.

This round 4 county league tie was played in Lewis Road on a fine summer’s evening last Saturday. A gallant Templenoe pushed Dr Crokes all the way and were unlucky to come up two points short in the end.

Templenoe opened the scoring thanks to an effort from Brian Crowley inside the first minute, to which Dr Crokes responded with a point from Alan O’Sullivan. Then Templenoe rocked the Killarney side with 2 goals in quick succession. The first came from Martin Reilly after a superb interception from John Spillane helped pave the way, while the second was finished to the net by Stephen O’Sullivan, who showed great awareness to win possession from a short kick out by the Crokes. The next 10 minutes saw Dr Crokes tag on two unanswered points from Brian Looney and Colm Cooper (free), but Templenoe hit back with one of their own through Stephen O’Sullivan to make the score 0-3 to 2-2 at the end of the first quarter. Dr Crokes got in for their first goal in the 19th minute, when Michael Potts fired home from close range. Then Pat Spillane and Brian Crowley exchanged scores with Colm Cooper (free) and Tony Brosnan, before points from Gavin O’Shea and Colm Cooper (free) brought the scores back to level terms just before the interval. In between Templenoe lost Sean Sheehan to a black card.

Half Time Score: Dr Crokes 1-7, Templenoe 2-4.

Dr Crokes had a bright opening to the second half with three unanswered points from veteran Eoin Brosnan, Alan O’Sullivan and David Shaw. Crokes also almost had goal in this time from Alan O’Sullivan, but his effort struck the crossbar. Templenoe replied with another long range point from Pat Spillane, before Brian Crowley slotted over a free following a foul on Patrick Clifford. Then in the 44th minute, Tony Brosnan restored Crokes lead to two points with a well taken score. Templenoe upped the ante again minutes later with Pat Spillane popping over his third point, before Stephen O’Sullivan put Brian Crowley through one on one with the keeper and Brian Crowley made no mistake with the finish to make the score 1-11 to 3-7 with just 9 minutes remaining. However Crokes don’t do panic and they recycled the ball well to set Brian Looney up for a point to reduce the margin to the minimum. Then a minute later a precision pass from Alan O’Sullivan to substitute Jordan Kiely who gathered the ball near the left corner, before bearing down on goal to dispatch the ball to the net. This gave Dr Crokes a two point cushion and Gavin O’Shea extended their lead to three with a fisted effort, before John Spillane got a consolation score for Templenoe.
