Michael O'Brien Match Report
Carrigtwohill 1-10 Glanmire 1-7
Carrigtwohill proved too strong for Glanmire’s second sting in a bitter cold Rostellan this Evening.
Carrig nearly got a dream start from the very first attack only for Glanmire’s Cul Barra Shane Conlon to bring off a mighty save at the expense of a forty five which Brendan Horgan duly converted. Carrig pressed hard and were rewarded by two points from the boots of Darren Burns and the afore mentioned Horgan to led by three points after five minutes of play.
Glanmire began to find their feet against a strong breeze with some find play by the midfield pairing of Kieran Kenneally and Joe Cashman but it took till the 13th minute before Kenneally converted a paced ball. Two more points followed in as many minutes the first from Conor Murphy with Kenneally landing a long range free to level the game.
Carrig responded immediately with points from Daniel O’Mahony and Brendan Horgan who was making a nuance of himself up front. Brendan O’Callaghan pulled one back for the Glanmire men but it was Carrigtwohill who finished the half stronger with three points on the trot from Declan Sugrue, Darren Burns, and Daniel O’Mahony to leave the score at the short whistle eight points to four.
Glanmire now turned with the wind and enjoyed most of the play put poor shooting saw them only put two points on the board during the third quarter. The first of these was a great solo effort from Kieran Kenneally who travelled half the length of the field. Fergal O’Reilly added the other.
Glanmire still pressed but to no avail then on the fiftieth minute following a Glanmire attack Carrig broke down the field and sub Michael O’Sullivan found the net, two minors followed one from captain Neil O’Connor and it was fitting that the final score fell to Carrigs man of the match Daniel O’Mahony.
To be fair to Glanmire they never gave up and ended the game with a point from veteran full forward Brendan O’Callaghan and Chris Cummins converted a penalty with the last kick of the game.
Carrigtwohill now face old rivals Midleton next weekend in round three.
