Glenville made the shorty journey to Carrig na bhFear on Tuesday, June 25 to take on close neighbours Carrig na bhFear and returned with the Imokilly Division 3 Junior Football League Patrick O’Mahony Cup, winning with a five-point margin on a scoreline of 1-13 to 0-11.

In what was a tightly fought and contested first half, Glenville started well with a first minute point by Colin O’Keeffe which was quickly match by a Carrig point. Josh Cook  got his first score with a free in the fifth minute before Carrig applied the pressure and imposed their control of the game, defending strongly, counter attacking and winning the Glenville kick-outs, resulting in scoring four points without reply to lead by three points at the 18th minute and keeping Glenville scoreless from the fifth to the twenty first minute. Glenville reassessed the situation and brought Ciaran Linehan into play as a sweeper to reduce the impact of the Carrig attacks and this proved successful before Josh Cook added his second and third point in the 21st and 24th minute to bring it back to a one-point game. The Glenville backs of Pearse Moloney, Diarmuid McCarthy, Shane Clarke, Davin Sullivan, Eddie Delahunt and Andrew Desmond, who had been doing a very good job, got control of the game in the last ten minutes of the first half and did a superb job at reducing the Carrig scoring opportunities and winning some key turnovers. Carrig added another point on the 25th minute. The in-form Josh Cooke added a fourth point of the first half, and Glenville’s fifth, to see Carrig lead at half time on a scoreline of 0-6 to 0-5.

Glenville got the dream start in the second half, winning the throw-in and passing the ball well, resulting in a superb Cathal Fitzgerald point from 40 metres to level the game. Carrig responded with another point to restore their one-point advantage before the skillful Colin O’Keeffe added two points in quick succession, followed by another excellent 30-metre Cathal Fitzgerald point to see Glenville lead by two points. The game was played at an intense level with attack and counterattack being the order of the day. Glenville’s Callum O’Mahony, Paudie Cotter, Aaron Collins and Darragh O’Bric were hugely impactful in attacking and quickly covering the length of the pitch to provide defence support. Glenville improved on their winning of their own kick-outs from keeper Niall Sullivan and this proved key to Glenville’s game management in the second half. Carrig responded with a point on the 39th minute, while Josh Cook replied with another point to restore the Glenville two-point advantage. Carrig continued to push and scored from a free in the 45th minute, and again, the in-form Josh Cooke scored a point from a free to restore the two-point advantage.  

Glenville management took advantage of the strength of their bench and introduced Ciaran O’Riordan, Colm O’Regan and Paudie Cahill at the 42nd minute and this proved an inspired decision to inject fresh legs, giving speed and strength to the Glenville attack. This quickly paid dividends with Ciaran O’Riordan scoring a superb goal in the 47th minute, after just five minutes on the pitch. This brought the Glenville advantage to five points and proved the turning point in the game and created a margin that Carrig failed to claw back. Glenville now with a strong control of the game introduced Denis Buttimer, Conor O’Mahony and Conor Gowen to bring strength and experiences defence to the game. This game management proved crucial confining Carrig to two further points, which were negated by a well-worked point by Colm O’Regan and a final point by Josh Cooke to see the game end on a scoreline of Glenville 1-13 (16) to Carrig na bhFear’s 0-11.

Carrig man, Don Hegarty, representing the Imokilly Board, complimented Glenville on their success and presented the Patrick O’Mahony Cup to Glenville captain, Paudie Cotter, who thanked his teammates, management, and club for a great Junior B League campaign. The evening finished with celebratory drinks and food in Kades Kounty.
