Carrigtwohill was the venue for this quarter final tie where we had a
hard earned one point victory over a fancied Inniscarra side.  We got
a whirlwind start with two goals in the opening seven minutes.  Eoin
Dorgan was the first on the mark from a fine pass from Arthur Nganou.
This goal was quickly followed by a neat flick from Colin Sloane which
found the net.  Inniscarra followed with a couple ofpoints and a
penalty which led to their only goal in this game.  The teams went in
at the break O’Neills leading by one point 2-5 to 1-7.

The second half was a very tense affair with both teams finding it
hard to get scores.  Defences were on top and both teams only scoring
3 points each in this period.  Our backs, in fairness, were excellent
in this half.  Ciaran Cullinane, Clive Dunne and Dominic Barry in
particular, cutting out several attacks.  A one point victory at the
finish now gives us a crack at Blackrock in the County semi-final.
Having already been in a tight game against Sliabh Rua and Inniscarra,
we won’t be fearing any team at this stage.

Blackrock 4-10 v Fr O'Neills 2-10

The semi final of this Premier 2 County semi final was played on
August bank holiday Monday last at Delaneys ground. The match was
played with the aid of a very strong wind in the first half and we
went in at the break with a six point lead.A feature of the first half
were the two goals from Arthur Nganou and some fine free taking from
William Abernethy, who scored eight points in total in this
game.Ciaran Cullinane hit the crossbar and the Blackrock keeper also
saved a penalty in the opening half.

With the strong wind in favour of Blackrock in the second half, they
got an early goal and further points in a short period to cut into our
lead. Blackrock then brought on three subs in a 20 minute period and
it seemed to strengthen them overall.Jason Hankard had a fine game in
goal and could do nothing about two further goals which gave Blackrock
a 4:10 to 2:9 .Ger Millerick , who had a great game throughtout at
centre back went for goal in the final period from a free only for the
sliotar to just go over the bar. Adrian Leahy at midfield worked
tirelessly throughout the game . The overall strength of the Blackrock
squad was to be a telling factor at the full time whistle.

Although we were disappointed,our lads had a very good campaign with
two fine victories against Sliabh Rua and Iniscarra.Credit to Phillip
,Brian,Billy and Sean for their hardwork all season with this group .A
special mention to parents and supporters for their attendance at
these games.
