Templenoe 2-13, Piarsaigh Na Dromoda 0-08.

Templenoe got their promotion ambitions back on track with an eleven points victory over the South Kerry side in the penultimate round of the County League on Saturday evening.

The match was played in glorious weather, but the first quarter was a start stop affair with frequent breaks in play due to injuries. Indeed the away side were forced to replace Jacob Haigh with James Curran very early on, after he was deemed unfit to continue. But the visitors did dominate the early exchanges and they had opening score of the contest from the boot of Chris Farley (f). Brian Crowley countered with a placed ball effort and then one minute later Crowley set Templenoe on their way after his fist pass was deflected into the net.

The second quarter saw the game open up a bit, with the scores finally starting to flow. Two points on the trot from Dromid’s Chris Farley and Dillon O’Donohue, were cancelled out with converted frees from Brian Crowley and Stephen O’Sullivan to make the score 1-03 to 0-03 after 32 minutes of action. The home side then consolidated their position with corner back Tom Spillane coming all the ways up the field to earn his first County League point of the season. Brian Crowley added another before Dromid Pearses Shane O’Connor kicked a fine score ahead of the interval to keep them well in contention.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 1-05, Piarsaigh Na Dromoda 0-04.

On resumption, Dillon O’Donohue traded scores with Stephen O’Sullivan and it was then that Templenoe, who had wind advantage for the second half started to pull clear with a brace of points from Cian Hallissey, Stephen O’Sullivan and two from Teddy Doyle, who caused problems every time he ran at the visitors defence. Andy Quigley did pull one score back for Dromid to make it 1-10 to 0-06 going into the second half water break.

The final quarter saw Brian Crowley and Stephen O’Sullivan continuing to pull the strings up front for Templenoe. The latter made another contribution on the scoreboard, before he then turned provided for Brian Crowley’s second goal after he gave a precision pass across the goal for Crowley to palm home. The remaining minutes gave the hosts the opportunity to empty their bench and see the game out with further scores from Stephen O’Sullivan and Colin Crowley. Dromid Pearses tried their best to create goal scoring opportunities, but Mark Looney and his defence stood firm and instead Dromid had to settle with two late points from Chris Farley and Padraig O’Sullivan.
