TEMPLENOE 3-15 MILLTOWN/CASTLEMAINE 2-07 2017-07-10 22:02:00

Templenoe 3-15, Milltown / Castlemaine 2-07

Templenoe had a very comprehensive win over Milltown/Castlemaine in Round 4 of the County Senior Football League. The visitors played with the strong breeze in the first half, but failed to capitalize on this advantage leaving Templenoe to kick the opening two points of the match from Brian Crowley and Killian Spillane.  The first ten minutes were very scrappy, with both teams kicking away possession, and on the tenth minute David Roche kicked Milltown/Castlemaine’s only point of the half.  Templenoe started to pick off the scores as they grew into the game, kicking four points in a row, and on the 24th minute, Stephen O’Sullivan finished off a great Templenoe move with a goal.
Milltown/Castlemaine did work plenty of scoring opportunities, but were guilty of numerous wides through the half, from both open play and placed balls.  Their situation got much worse with a minute to go in the half, when Brian Crowley scored Templenoe’s second goal to leave the half time score, Templenoe 2-08, Milltown/Castlemaine 0-01.

Templenoe continued the scoring trend and kicked two early points after the interval from Stephen O’Sullivan and Brian Crowley, but the following ten minutes saw Milltown/Castlemaine kick four points in succession from Cathal Moriarty (2), Donal Kelleher, and Jack McCarthy.  The visitors’ momentum was halted, when Stephen O’Sullivan scored his second goal of the match on the 19th minute and Templenoe kicked four unanswered points soon afterwards.  Both teams started to bring on substitutes, and in the last few minutes, a scoring burst from Milltown/Castlemaine added two goals and two points to the scoreline with centre forward Pa Wrenn doing the damage by scoring 1-02. The final whistle saw Templenoe victorious on a score of Templenoe 3-15, Milltown / Castlemaine 2-07 and picking up two very valuable County League points.
