Junior B Munster Final
Garryspillane 3-7 Drom-Inch 2-10
The Bouncers dug deep in injury time and snatched 1-1 to force a draw.
Drom-Inch had played into the breeze in the first half and were 1-5 to 0-7 in arrears at the break . The Bouncers getting off the mark quickly through Sean Kearney, Michael O’Donnell (2) and a goal from William Harty in the 9th minute. The Drom-Inch lads settled and put a good spell together in the second quarter with points from Liam Harty, Seamus Butler (4) and Micheal Clohessy . Though the game was tied within five minutes of the restart, The Bouncers got a real shot in the arm when Kevin Meade goalled in the 6th minute, followed by a point from Danny Hayes to restore a four point lead.
Drom-Inch responded with Seamus Butler pointing a free and then Micheal Clohessy scored a fine goal having been fed by sub John Kennedy who had just entered the fray.
The Bouncers were reduced to fourteen men in the 27th minute of the second half when Kevin Meade received a second yellow card for waving his hurley in front a freetaker.
With 31 minutes gone in the second half Drom & Inch had a four point advantage. The Bouncers had a goal from a free in the 35th minute from Danny Hayes to leave a point in it once more and controversy ensued when referee Simon Stokes awarded another free to The Bouncers in the 39th minute having consulted with umpires and both linesmen. Drom-Inch were very aggrieved at the decision and as Danny Hayes pointed the free to tie up the game, proceedings were called to a halt for full time. They must do it all again this weekend in Raheenagh with Throw in at 2.30pm.
We would again like to thank our Main Sponsor Dan Flynn of Pool Ireland and also we would like to thank The Welcome Inn and Mitchelstown Credit Union for their recent support of the Junior B Team. Thank you THE SUPORTERS for the support the club are receiving at this exciting time
