No joy for our hurlers
Our fairytale championship streak ended last Friday evening as Lisgoold came out on top in our Intermediate AHC quarter-final clash in Fermoy.
Lisgoold’s attacking threat in the second half was the difference between the sides on the night as they continued their unbeaten championship run which began way back in August of 2019.
The echo of the first whistle was still reverberating around the grounds when an early sub was required for us as Kieran Hurley replaced the injured Sean Kelly.
We took command in the early stages with our intricate forward movement proving troublesome for lisgoolds defence.
Lisgoold’s first scores of the night came from wing-back Kieran Cashman, scoring two in quick succession, both from a considerable distance.
We responded in kind, with a monster score from James Keating.
However, it was Peter O’Brien who shined the brightest for us in the first half amassing six points with four from frees.
Lisgoold had a flurry of wides in the first half, but our lead was well-merited going into the interval on a scoreline of 0-7 to 0-10.
After the changeover, it was Lisgoold that came out as a much-improved unit. Diarmuid Healy scored three scores in as many minutes for the East Cork side.
We fought hard to stay in touch, illustrated by two quickfire points from James Keating and Peter O’Brien.
Unfortunately for us, they would be their final scores of the night with forty minutes gone.
From there, Lisgoold found a rhythm and began a barrage of scores that our hard-working side had no answer for. Hard luck boys. Not our night on this occasion.
Scorers for Kildorrery: P O’Brien (0-7, 5 frees), J Keating (0-2), F Stapleton (0-1), J McEnirny (0-1), D Kelly (0-1).
