U-21 CHAMPIONSHIP: ‘A game of two halves’ is a line used a lot when describing games, this U-21 game was a great example of it. Playing with a strong breeze (more of a gale really!) in the first half, we had 7 points notched up by the first water break, with nothing conceded at the other end. Our first goal came in the 14th min from Conor Martin, our second coming 9 mins later from Jake Kennedy. Tournafulla-Killeedy scored their first goal with 3 mins left in the half, but we went in at half time comfortably ahead by 13 points, 2-13 to 1-03. The second half was a mirror image of the first, Tournafulla-Killeedy using the wind to great effect, while we struggled to get our hands on the ball. In the first 6 mins of the half, Tournafulla-Killeedy had 2-05 put on the board, to bring it back to just a 2-point game. Our only score in that 3rd quarter was another goal from Conor Martin, but heading into the second water break, Tournafulla-Killeedy were up by 3 points. Credit to our lads though, they didn’t give up and a goal from a short range free from Jack Enright in the 20th min brought it back to a 2-point game again, but Tournafulla-Killeedy used that breeze well and slotted over a couple of more scores to take a 4-point win, 4-18 to 4-14. TEAM: M Hogan, D McNamara, E Balfry, J Moloney, N Tierney, S Whelan (0-01), D Murnane, Jack Carroll (0-02(2*f)), P Wixted (0-02), J Halvey (0-01), J Enright (1-04(1g*f, 1*f)), C Enright, Jake Carroll (0-01), J Kennedy (1-03), C Martin (2-00). SUBS: 16mins 2nd half -> off: C Enright on: M O’Connor, B Curtin, R Walsh. Next up, we welcome St Kieran’s to Caherconlish on Sunday October 31st for a 12-noon throw-in.
