Junior Football League Division 4

Lisgoold 1-8 (11)
Killeagh 5-7 (22)
At Killeagh
22nd May 2012

A disappointing result but a much better performance from our second team squad as they succumbed to another defeat in the Division 4 league. Manager Barry Ahern for several reasons (out of his control) was down to the bear minimum for this game. What was potentially an uplifting move, Kieran Stack was called out of retirement to don on the blue and gold (to great applause from the Lisgoold following). Hoping to copy a tactic that worked for Manchester United with Paul Scholes, our management team hoped this would inspire our players in this game.

The signs were numinous as Killeagh surged to an early lead. However we played controlled and patient football in the first half against the breeze and we eventually managed to land a few points thanks to Dave O’Sullivan and Moss Mulcahy. We battled on bravely with some great play from brothers Kieran & Kevin O’Shea, Kieran Barry and Cian Scannell. We were aided with a red card later on in the half and confidence was surging within the squad as unlikely victory could be on the cards as we trooped off 0-6 to 0-3 down at half-time.

In more of hope than expectation we headed out in the second half, in which we got a simply fantastic start were our two scorers combined superbly again (within the first few mins of the half) with a great team move which was started off by Kieran Barry and finished by Moss to raise the green flag, a few more points from Dave and Moss ensured we took the lead. It was very encouraging from our lads, however Killeagh with their strength in depth and know how, soon took over. They managed to raise a green flag of their own and the game was poised at 1-6 each. Our lads did their best to hold out and try to get a result but the constant pressure from Killeagh took its toll. With eleven minutes to go they got another goal and the flood gates opened. In a devastating seven minute spell they banged in another three and that was that. Charles Smart and Kieran Stack replied but it was too little too late.

Although the result was disappointing, the performance for 45 minutes was encouraging and we should take great heart in this. Like the first team, our second string now face the farcical situation of waiting till September for championship but that is a matter of discussion for the end of season. So an improvement from our lads but a lot more commitment needed.

Team: Owen Heagrty, JJ Williams, Noel O’Riordan, Mike Berine, Kieran Barry, Kevin O’Shea, Cian Scannell, Patrick Connery, Charles Smart, Dave O’Sullivan, Kieran O’Shea, Kyle Devine, Kieran Stack, Moss Mulcahy, John O’Shea.

Scorers: Moss Mulcahy 1-3 (0-1 free), Dave O’Sullivan 0-2, Kieran Stack, Charles Smart, Kieran O’Shea 0-1 each.

Referee: Eoghan McGovern (Castlemartyr)

Junior Hurling League Division 1 Section 2

Lisgoold 1-12 (15)
Harbour Rovers 1-14 (17)
At Glanworth
17th May 2012

A bizarre game last Friday night as the hosts came away with the spoils in a head scratching encounter. Playing a precise measured performance, the blues came into this encounter looking for a much needed win. John Cashman, John McCarthy, Patrick O’Mahony and Barry Ahern were in fine form as we took on our opponents with great gusto. Some fine scores were made throughout the hour and we had kept our opponents under constant pressure. However even though we hit tally of 19 wides, we still couldn’t take the lead. It can only be described as a very disappointing and frustrating hour, as we simply could not get ahead. However credit must go to Harbour Rovers, they dug deep and with commitment, heart and a little bit of luck held out for the two points on offer. It was just one of those nights as we ended up short again, however with a few more games left we can hope that our luck will change in time for championship.

Junior Hurling League Division 1 Section 2

Lisgoold 1-12 (15)
Buttevant 2-14 (20)
At Lisgoold
26th May 2012

A match worthy of championship level was held last Sunday night in Paric Liosgcúl. Credit must go to both sides who produced a enthralling and entertaining encounter throughout the hour. Lisgoold received a lighting quick start as they raced to early lead 1-2 to 0-1 thanks to John McCarthy, John Cashman and the quick-silver Denis O’Brien. Patrick O’Mahony and John Cronin were clearing a world of ball, and with solid performances from Cathal Cashman and Bryan O’Sullivan Lisgoold were holding firm. A lapse of concentration late in the first half allowed Buttevant in for their first goal; this was seen a key moment as we only went a point ahead at half time 1-6 to 1-5.

The second saw a lighting start from the visitors who roared into life and surged into a five point lead with the addition of their second goal. However great heart must be taken from the response of our players as they fought (literally) tooth and nail to try and get back in the game. Some lovely scores from Moss, John Cashman and Supermac ensured we were still in touch. However the visitors held out strong to finish on the right side by five points. It was a good, tough, hard game from both sides. Lisgoold can be satisfied that their is great fight in this team and while a bit more work to do can be quietly confident of producing the goods come championship.
