Intermediate Hurling;
Round 4 of the intermediate league saw us take on Bandon at home on Saturday evening last.The game was watched by a large crowd despite the inclement weather which seems to be a feature of all our games to date.
Bandon started the game in determined fashion and aided by the strong wind went into an 8 point to 1 lead after 25 minutes,our point an excellent effort from ex Bandon man James Nyhan.We finished the half the stronger though and scored 3 unanswered points to leave us 8 points to 4 behind at the half time whistle.
The start of the second half saw us score the first 2 points both from the stick of midfielder Keith Dennehy,an improvement in our intensity saw us take the game to Bandon but we suffered a setback when against the run of play Bandon scored a fortuitous goal when a mishit shot from their corner forward found its way to the corner of Donal Og’s net.
This put us 6 points behind 1.09 to 6 points,the response was immediate however as Luke goaled from a 21 yard free to put us back in the game.
We finished the game the stronger and restricted Bandon to only 2 further points and helped by a Diarmuid O Sullivan goal we finished the game on level terms 2.08 to 1.11.
In the closing stages we had opportunity’s to win the game but were wide from both play and free’s but the management will be happy with the draw against arguably the top team in the grade and having lined out minus a number of first team players.
