Killeagh 0-16 Carrigtwohill 0-14
Referee: Patrick O’Driscoll (Bride Rovers)
An understrength Carrig side put up a good fight against in-form Killeagh in game two of the second phase of the league.
Killeagh began the brighter and were eight points to two up inside fifteen minutes with Jay Horgan notching Carrig’s opening point with an outstanding effort from wing-back and Darren O’Driscoll adding his first of three scores. The play evened out over the rest of the half as Carrig ground themselves into the game with Padraic Hogan hurling well at full back and the wing-back line coming out on top. Tomás Hogan was outstanding at centre-forward and rattled over four points from placed balls before half-time with O’Driscoll’s second score completing Carrig’s total in the first thirty. Killeagh also had their chances and scored five points in the second quarter of the game to go in at the half ahead, thirteen points to seven.
Carrig were much the better on the restart and quickly exerted themselves in the middle third. Carrig held Killeagh scoreless for almost twenty minutes of the second half. In that time Tomás Hogan put over three frees and Sean Dempsey and Christopher Keegan added two fine points to draw Carrig within the minimum, thirteen points to twelve. After registering their first score of the half Killeagh pushed on and scored two more with O’Driscoll’s reply leaving Carrig within two points with nine minutes to go. Shane Devlin was brought forward for a twenty-one metre free on fifty-five minutes but his effort was deflected over the bar for Carrig’s fourteenth and final point. Carrig had a final chance with another close-in free at the death but after trying to work an opening, it was cleared.
