Intermediate Hurling Lge.rnd.1
Fr.O Neills 2:08 v Fermoy 0:14
We started our Hurling Lge.campaign at home to Fermoy in ideal conditions on Sunday last.
Short a few of our regulars for one reason or another we were forced into playing some of our younger brigade who were more than equal to the challenge,the game started at a good enough pace with both defences on top which meant scores were hard to come by and after a tit for tat first half we went in leading by a goal well taken by Rob.Cullinane who was set up by Podge Butler,all this despite the fact that we lost Ger.O Leary to an Ankle injury after the opening 20 mins.Fermoy started the 2nd half with purpose and put the first 2 scores on the board again like the first it was tough stuff with play flowing from end to end,more misfortune was to come our way after 10 mins.when we lost Wm.Joyce to a Shoulder injury and a further 10 mins later we lost John O Driscoll to a Back injury never the less we kept our work rate up and were rewarded with a second goal courtesy of Luke Swayne,this seemed to ignite Fermoys challenge and they responed by firing over 4 our single one to level the game entering the closing minutes,We had one last opportunity to snatch victory with a long fange free taken by Podge but unfortunately it sailed wide,all in all a tough start to our Lge.campaign and to take the positives we finished with a very young team on the field with a very good work ethic being shown by all,others to impress were A.Kenneally,J.Barry,Liam O Driscoll,G.Holland,K.Hegarty and N.Griffin.
