RADLEY ENGINEERING WESTERN INTERMEDIATE FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND 2

                                  TWO OUT OF TWO FOR SLIABH GCUA

                                    SLIABH GCUA 1-8 DUNGARVAN 1-7

SLIABH GCUA sit deservingly on top of their group  in the Western IFC and are already assured of a place in the knockout stages after this narrow win over Dungarvan at a very wet Fraher Field last Saturday afternoon.

The junior game preceding this fixture escaped the rain but it bucketed down for this one and fair dues to both sides for their efforts in less than favourable conditions. Sliabh gCua were first out of the blocks with their forwards, led by Denis Coffey, in particular, opening the Blues defence.

Jason Sheehan pointed an early free and Gearoid Hallinan pounced for an 8th minute goal to put his side in the driving seat. The Touraneena team should have had a second goal when Sheehan placed Sean Condon while at the town end Dungarvan could have got off the mark but Jack Lacey’s shot on goal from a Cathal Curran pass drifted wide.

Colm Curran opened Dungarvan’s account in the 11th minute but Sliabh gCua soon stretched their advantage to 0-5 with scores by Denis Coffey and Jason Sheehan, the latter then off target with another effort, 1-3 to 0-1.

At the start of the second quarter, Dungarvan made inroads with a point by Michael Kiely and a goal by Jack Lacey from the same angle as his first attempt.  The winners kept in control, though, with a fine point by Brendan McGourty and a third pointed free by Jason Sheehan. Cathal Curran finished the first half scoring from a placed ball, Sliabh gCua in front at half time by 1-5 to 1-3.

Dungarvan had four first half wides to Sliabh gCua’s two.

SECOND HALF

Dungarvan made a lightning start to the second half scoring 0-4 from play by the 37th minute. A brace of fine points by Eoin O Callaghan was followed by minors by Jack Lacey and Cathal Curran. This gave the Blues a 0-2 lead at 1-7 to 1-5 but they did not score for the remaining twenty three minutes plus of time.

In contrast, Sliabh gCua added 0-3 to their tally to run out one point winners. Brendan McGourty was a real leader on the field for the winners and he settled his side with a 38th minute point. Jason Sheehan added a brace of pointed frees, the second in the 42nd minute as Sliabh gCua didn’t score themselves for the last eighteen minutes plus of play.

The deterior weather had a lot to do with both teams remaining scoreless but not everything to do with it. Dungarvan, in particular had four scoreable frees in the final ten minutes with no return while Daniel Flynn made a great save at point blank range from Cathal Curran.

The umpires were also on the ball in this game as the referee had awarded a penalty for a supposed foot block by Flynn on Curran but the umpire put the ref right and justice was done.

Sliabh gCua are now the only team to have two wins in this group and they will play Ardmore this weekend. Dungarvan are winless and they will have to beat Ballinacourty this Sunday to have some hope of avoiding a relegation battle.

Best for the winners were Denis Coffey, Brendan McGourty, Gearoid Hallinan, Daniel Flynn, Owen Kearns, Stephen Coffey, David Condon and Jason Sheehan.  For Dungarvan, Jack Lacey, Conor Sheridan, Colm Curran, Robbie Wall, Cathal Curran, Joe Duggan, Gavin Christopher and John Curran had good games.

HAT TRICK HARRY SEALS ARDMORE WIN

ARDMORE 3-8 DUNGARVAN 0-9

GOALS by Harry O Leary at the end of the first half, half way through the second and at the very end of proceedings, ensured a good win for Ardmore in the first round of the Western IFC against Dungarvan in Pairc Ui Cholmain sa Sean Phobail last Saturday afternoon. O Leary took each of his goals with some style in a Man of the Match performance that saw him finish with an overall tally of 3-2 from play.

Ardmore began the better with a pointed free by Seamus Keating and a score from play by Jack Keane. Dungarvan responded well and went ahead by the 14th minute with Cathal Curran scoring from play and Michael Kiely adding 0-2(1f).

John O Brien levelled for the winners and the seasiders had the opportunity to go ahead in the 23rd minute but Ciaran Keating’s penalty effort came back off the upright.  Ed Flavin did well to deny Dungarvan a goal at the other end with Gavin Christopher salvaging a point before Jack Lacey provided for a Colm Curran point to leave the Blues 0-2 in front just before the break.

However, Harry O Leary’s first goal arrived in the 30th minute when James Flavin sent a brilliant diagonal pass in his path and O Leary finished in style past Tadhg Murray in the Dungarvan goal, 1-3 to 0-5.. Ardmore kicked four first half wides to Dungarvan’s three.

SECOND HALF

Ardmore drove on in the second half with the first three scores by O Leary, Seamus Keating and O Leary,again, all from play and Dungarvan badly required a goal to stay in the game, behind by 1-6 to 0-5. Kealan Daly pointed before Michael Kiely had a penalty kick saved by Conor Moore in the Ardmore goal.

Harry O Leary put the game almost out of the reach of Dungarvan with his second goal, a clever dipping effort but a pointed ‘45’by Eoin O Callaghan and a fine score by corner back Sean Hyslop left just 0-4 the difference with 52 minutes on the clock, 2-6 to 0-8.

James Flavin and Jack Lacey traded points before Ardmore accounted for the final two scores of the game, a point by sub Joe McNamara and Harry O Leary’s third goal and the completion of his commendable hat trick.

Best for the winners, apart from O Leary, included Oisin Dwyer, Seamus Keating, Ed and James Flavin, Padraig Foley and Jack Keane.

Dungarvan were best served by such as Colm Curran, Kealan Daly, Jack Lacey, Oisin Morrissey, Mikey Burke, John Curran, Sean Hyslop, Cathal Curran and Michael Kiely.
