County Senior Football Championship
Fr. Caseys 1-11 Newcastle West 3-07
Fr. Caseys Senior Footballers made the short trip to Tournafulla last Thursday evening to take on county champions Newcastle West in the opening round of the county championship. Minus some key players through injury and travel this was going to be a daunting task for a very young Fr. Caseys side.
An impressive opening quarter saw Fr. Caseys race into a 0-04 to 0-01 lead but on 18 minutes Newcastle West struck for goal to level the scores. The response from Fr. Caseys was to kick five points without reply to hold a commanding lead as we entered injury time. Newcastle West kicked the last point of the half to leave four points between the teams at the break. After a dominant first half in which our forwards had definitely brought their scoring boots, Fr. Caseys took a 0-09 to 1-02 lead into the interval.
Newcastle West needed a big reply and they delivered with 1-01 inside the opening ten minutes of the second half to level the scores. On 45 minutes Newcastle West then took the lead for the first time when they struck for their third goal of the night. Fr. Caseys were now the team that needed a reaction and two minutes later they were awarded a penalty. Up stepped Eoghan O’Connell to confidently drill the ball to the back of the net and level the scores once more. We were now setup for a grandstand finish with just 10 minutes on the watch. The teams traded points before Newcastle West kicked two without reply to hold a slender advantage as we headed to injury time. Fr. Caseys reduced the margin to a single point and had a chance to level the scores once more in the dying minutes. Newcastle West defence held firm and countered to score at the other end to restore the two-point cushion. The final whistle came too early for Fr. Caseys and they unfortunately had fallen just short. The final score in Tournafulla was Fr. Caseys 1-11, Newcastle West 3-07. The old story of goals win games was very true on this occasion. Despite a very impressive opening half our seniors left Tournafulla empty handed and the focus will now be on Claughaun in round two this weekend.
