Killarney Legion 1-13 Templenoe 1-17
Templenoe took full advantage of a lacklustre Legion performance in Derreen to deservedly take the two points.Indeed it looked at one stage that it would be a runaway win as the visitors stretched their lead to 8 pts.However thanks mainly to the unerring accuracy of Jamie O Sullivan – who ended the day with a personal tally of 11pts.- and Conor Keane 1-2 the Legion stayed in it but Templenoe had the ability to hit back and keep the homeside at arms length.The second half was very similar to the first with Templenoe opening another good margin of 6 pts.but once again the Legion dragged it back to a single point but that was as close as it got.Templenoe were able to break at speed and created an overlap that the Legion defence never really came to grips with.Conor McCarthy in the Legion goals made several outstanding saves and his handling was of the highest order.The absence of Shaun Keane through injury from midfield was sorely felt and certainly the scoring burden is another issue to be addressed.
Last Saturday the senior ladies took the short journey to Tralee to take on John Mitchels.in
what was tight battle and no quarter given by both teams after which our ladies came out on top on a score line of 3-10 to 2- 6 scoreline.Another fine performance.
