The Golfer Gary Player once said 'The secret to playing well is not how good your good shots are but how good your bad shots are'
This was evident for Tallow on Sunday as we survived a poor first half to go in at the break only three points down. Thomas Ryan ran and worked and suddenly we were four points clear and the match was there for us. When we needed William Henley he produced two great points for us in the first half to prevent Ballyduff from getting out of sight and never let his workrate drop despite being outnumbered on puckouts and when Ryan Grey was needed in the first half he was acurate and kept the scoreboard ticking over.
It was a great game of bluff and counter-bluff as James Murray and Stephen Molumphy circled one another. Molumphy was at the centre of everything good that Ballyduff did in the first half and was outstanding in the last ten minutes, his catch and score to reduce the deficit to one point in injury time being worth the price of admission alone.
Gallant in Defeat
In truty this game could have gone either way. To lose out by such a slender margin in a senior county Semi Final is bound to be heartbreaking for any team. Ballyduff were both dignifed and magnanimous in the aftermath of the game and we thank then for their congratulations and genuine well wishes.
Hearty congratulatins to senior selector Stuart Barry and his wife Aileen on the birth of baby Adam. I hear Stuart is after buying him a hurley already, Starting young!
We extend our deepest sympathy to the Foley family Stradbally and Ballygunner on the tragic passing of Paul. We also extend sincere sympathy to John Condon and family on the tragic death of his wife Jacinta Ar dheis De go raidh a anam.
