At Lisgoold
2nd Mar 2014

Our second team faced a second defeat of the campaign albeit a much improved performance from the first encounter against Glenbower Rvs. Played in nice weather but a heavy pitch our supporters were treated to an honest, hard-working and free-flow performance from both teams. Carrignavar raced out the blocks with two points. However the vast experience shone through, as a quick kick-out from Owen Hegarty led to a quick one two involving Dave Barry and Finbarr Brosnan which led to Moss Mulcahy and Denis O’Brien setting up Caomhián O’Shea to the first score for Lisgoold. In fairness it was the move of the match and it seemed we were in for a good game. Carrignavar stretched their lead to 0-3 to 0-1 before a hotly contested goal was scored by the visitors which was claimed to be a square ball by the hosts but referee ruled otherwise. This sprung Lisgoold into action, some great points by Paul (free), Moss and Paul again ensured the lead was cut down to two. A few positional switches by management ensured a tightening up of defence; Carrig scored one more point to leave 1-4 to 0-4 at the break.

The second half saw the blues against a stiff breeze and one could say the faced little hope as carrig hit three quick points in succession. However it was encouraging to see the old heads of the panel, Jer, Dave, Finbarr, Moss and Denis combined with the youthful trio (and quite excellent) Andrew, Darragh and Ciaran ensured a fightback from Lisgoold, and to their credit the never gave in. In fact it was a much improved performance and with Noel O’Riordan being used as a target man, we had a platform for our attacks. Caomhián O’Shea was chipping at the score as well as Denis which encouraged our lads more to attack. Chances were being created but were not being taken and this turned to be our Achilles heel, that there was lack of accuracy in our shooting in the final third. Ultimately time ran out on us and carrig ran out deserved winners by a five point margin. The lads can take great positives from this as this was a far improved performance from the last day even though we had ten players on the missing list. Also the performances of our young players Andrew Donovan, Caomhián O’Shea, Kieran O’Shea and Darragh Fleming were one of the many highlights from this encounter. There are three games left in this league and one can hope that win can be got to bring on the young players even more. So although defeated, a very respectable performance from our lads who put a bit of pride brought back in the jersey.

Team: Owen Hegarty, Darragh Fleming, Andrew Donovan, John O’Shea, Jer O’Connell, Dave Barry, Kieran O’Shea, Peter Leahy, Finbarr Brosnan, Paul Stack, Moss Mulcahy, Denis O’Brien, Caomhián O’Shea, Noel O’Riordan, Mick Berine.

Fitzgibbon Cup

All in C.L.G. Liosgcul were glued to the twitter (and by all accounts most of Cork county) last Friday afternoon as CIT dethroned UCC. Our own John Cronin grabbing the goal in a 1-17 to 0-19 win. Hopes were high as they took on WIT in the final but they fell short 0-17 to 0-12 as a strong defensive albeit slightly negative performance allowed the Waterford College to emerge victorious. John has yet again done the whole club proud, although he may be disappointed that he didn’t get to take the coveted trophy home he can be rest assured that he earn much admiration from many for his performances. Well done Johnsey!
