Glenbeigh/Glencar 0-9 Miltown/Castlemaine 0-11

Glenbeigh/Glencars poor season continued as they were knocked out of the Mid Kerry Championship in the sem-final by Milltown/Caslemaine on Sunday evening. Two Jonathan O Sullivan frees gave the visitors the early advantage and it could have been worse if not for Donal O Neill pulling off a great save which looked like a certain goal. Glenbeigh/Glencar fought their way back into the match as frees from Tommy Cahill (2) and Adrian O Connor gave them the lead 0-03 to 0-02 but were dealt a blow as Stephen O Sullivan had to be replaced by Caoilte Purcell after an injury to the veteran. Tommy Cahill looked to have edged the home team further in front but the umpire flagged his attempt which looked to be good wide. Jonathon O Sullivan and Cathal Moriarty points restored the lead for Milltown/Castlemaine and but for another brilliant save by Donal O Neill it could of been much worse for Glenbeigh/Glencar. A late Jonathon O Sullivan converted free gave Milltown/Catlemaine the advantage at the break 0-03 to 0-05.

Glenbeigh/Glencar struggled to put any cohesive moves together in the first half but started the second with a fine move resulting in Caolim Teahan scoring the opening point and bringing the difference back to one. Another converted Tommy Cahill free levelled the match 10 minutes into the second half but Milltown/Castlemaine responded well again when Jonathon O Sullivan saw his effort from a free sail over the bar. The game was in the melting pot and it looked like it could go either way with Glenbeigh/Glencar creating more chances but spurning them frequently. Liam Roche levelled the match again when he showed great composure to steady himself and drove his effort between the uprights. Things looked to be going Glenbeigh/Glencars way when Adrian O Connor gave them the lead midway through the half but they were dealt another blow when an injury to Tommy Cahill forced him out of the game and was replaced by Daniel Griffin. Milltown/Castlemaine showed great reliance coming back to take the lead again with two more O Sullivan frees 0-07 to 0-08. A fine Daniel Griffin pass to Darran O Sullivan opened another equalizing opportunity and Darran made no mistake as he dove the ball over the bar to level this nail biter again. The game was end to end with Glenbeigh/Glencar creating the better chances but guilty of missing good chances to close the game and Milltown/Castlemaine took advantage as Kieran Carroll gave them the lead once again. Caolim Teahan looked to have forced a replay with a fine effort in the last minute of normal play but Jonathon O Sullivan made no mistake converting another free on 31 minutes to close out the game and scored again with the last kick of the match to give themselves a two point win 0-09 to 0-11. The second half was an exciting encounter but in truth the standard was very poor from both teams. Glenbeigh/Glencar will be kicking themselves for missing a host of handy scores a total of 15 wides to Milltown/Castlemaines 2 tells its own story.
