Superb Effort By Our Footballers
Our intermediate footballers came up slightly short against Mitchelstown this weekend in the Intermediate football championship despite a brilliant effort. As the final whistle blew the crowd knew they had been treated to a match where work effort and determination were the order of the day despite the result.
This second round match of this round robin format certainly highlighted the superb fitness that our guys were at.
Mitchelstown welcomed back Cathal O’Mahony following an injury and Ian butler was a busy man for the hour marking him but he did a superb job. The winners led 0-6 to 1-0 at half-time, Dylan Kent with the Kildorrery goal after five minutes and from there we did not register a score again for the remainder of the half. It was a first half built on grit determination and hard work. We conceded more than we converted and the lads know that we created enough chances to shade it. When you have something to improve on and your still in with a chance of progressing, then that’s never a bad thing.
Mitchelstown had the experience to stay ahead of us in the second-half as they picked up their first win of the season having drawn with Boherbue three weeks ago. Aaron O’Brien landed five points for the winners with O’Mahony kicking a point with the Cork footballer getting 50 minutes under his belt. The introduction of subs Cathal Harrington and Sean Watson certainly added more flair to our attack in the second half with both of the guys getting on the score sheet. Will Fouhy and Cormac o Baoill also added a point. Dave Kelly had what looked like a reasonable request for a penalty at the end that could have secured our faith however having consulted with the umpire it wasn’t given. This didn’t take from the superb performance and we must remember that. It was an all round team performance and we look forward to our next outing.
After the second round proceedings Boherbue are level on points with Mitchelstown after a nail biting 1-13 to 1-12 win over a Ken O’Halloran coached Ballinora side played in Coachford on Sunday. The Duhallow side led 1-6 to 0-5 at half-time but trailed 1-7 to 1-6 after 33 minutes when Michael Quirke goaled for Ballinora. Boherbue weathered the storm and were ahead 1-13 to 1-9 after 56 minutes. Ballinora rallied but they now suffer a second consecutive defeat. Mitcheslstown face Ballinora in the last round and we face Boherbue. Destiny lies in our own hands and we know what we have tom do.
