GARRYSPILLANE GAA CLUB NOTES
Garryspillane booked their place in the Munster club Junior B Hurling Final with a 1-16 to 1-11 semi-final win over St Josephs Doora-Barefield. The Bouncers now await the winners of next weekend’s semi-final between Castletownroche (Cork) and Drom & Inch (Tipperary) in the provincial final of the junior B competition that is run by Killeedy GAA club in Raheenagh.
The Bouncers were 1-9 to 0-10 ahead at half time thanks to 25th minute goal from Kevin Meade. Garryspillane had a return of six pointed frees from Danny Hayes and three fine points from play from Micheal O’Donnell in that opening half against the Clare champions. Doora-Barefield were 0-6 to 0-2 ahead after 12-minutes with Niall Deloughrey and Barry Millane leading their scoring. The sides were level twice in the half with Garryspillane ahead for the first time in the 23rd minute at 0-8 to 0-7.
In the second half, Doora-Barefield were to score just twice – both from Damien Kennedy. Kevin and Stephen Meade had early points as Garryspillane moved 1-13 to 0-10 ahead after 11-minutes of the restart. It was the 16th minute of the half before Doora-Barefield scored but that Kennedy goal brought the men in maroon back within a score of Garryspillane. But a ninth pointed free from Hayes and a fine effort from the impressive Ciaran Sheehan settled Garryspillane nerves during the eight minutes of justified injury time.
Full Time Score Garryspillane 1-16 St Josephs Doora-Barefield 1-11
