Our big game last weekend was the senior football relegation battle with Arravale Rovers. This was a real pressure game played in ideal conditions on Sunday at 12
noon. And we were under real pressure from the start, conceding three goals in the
first ten minutes. We settled down however and Kevin Grogan and Jack Buckley
scored five points between them in the first quarter to leave the score 3-1 to 5
points at the first water break. Our good form continued in the second quarter and
we were level just before half time, 10 points to 3 goals and one point. However,
two quick points from Arravale Rovers saw them lead by two points at half time.
Prospects were looking good for us at half time after scoring 10 points and getting
back level after conceding three goals. That was as good as it got for us, as
Arravale started at a blistering pace and scored 8 points to our 2 in the third
quarter. We also lost Sean O’Connor who was playing very well, with a double
yellow. Try as we might, we were unable to make progress against a strong and
experienced Arravale team. The final score was Arravale 3-14, Cahir 13 points.
The early goals made it a very difficult game for the players, but great credit is due
to them the way they kept plugging away and brought the game back level after
twenty eight minutes. We have one more chance to retain our senior status when
we play Moyne/Templetuohy in the relegation final. The team and scorers were as
follows; Patrick O’Donovan, Patrick Meehan, Ger Hally, Eoin Donaghy, Ciaran
Condon (0-1), Sean O’Connor, Brian McKenna, Eddie Kendrick, Stephen Grogan
(0-1), Niall McKenna (0-1), Robbie Costigan, Jake Kiely, Sean Murphy (0-2) Kevin
Grogan (0-3) Jack Buckley (0-6). Subs Used: Nicholas Reidy, Dylan Fitzgerald,
Colin McEniry, Eoghan Kelly, Conor O’Brien
