Match Reports – Intermediate Football:
Our Intermediate football team opened their championship campaign on Saturday evening in
Caherconlish against Pallasgreen. Crecora started brightly with the lion’s share of possession in the opening minutes and opened the scoring with a point from a free from Sam Riordan and from a turnover on the Pallas kickout, worked the ball in to Ciaran Cusack for the opening goal of the game. Pallasgreen were next to capitalise with some fine play to register their opening point and soon after were in on goal when they were stopped inside the large square resulting in a Black Card for Crecora and a Penalty for Pallas which was superbly saved by Shane O’Connell in the Crecora Goals.
Unfortunately, despite all their possession, Crecora lads failed to score again until the 53rd minute while Pallas put up 7 points on the bounce. A free from Conor Burke stemmed the tide followed by another free 5 mins later from Sam Riordan. Despite relentless pressure in the last couple of minutes, Pallasgreen held tough and denied Crecora a goal scoring opportunity with the full-time whistle sounding with our lads on the wrong end of a 2-point defeat – Crecora 1-03 Pallasgreen 0-08. We move on to our next game against Rathkeale next Friday evening in Ballingarry throws in at 19:30pm – all support welcome.
