After heavy rainfall Friday and a terrible start to Saturday morning, the evening turned out duprrisingly well, with not a drop of frain for the duration of the game. Tallow fought to the bitter end and will be somewhat satisfied with a much improved performance from the last day. They were delt a blow prior to the game withthe loss of Aidan (RIngo) Kearney due to illness. Ballygunner had a superior start with two tremendous points from play. Tallow responded with a point from Thomas Ryan to keep the difference to a minimum. The game was tit for tat with the speed of hurling in the opening half much faster than the previous round. This was no surprise as Ballygunner are renowned for their lightening pace and abundance of talant. Tallow will, howver, be disappointed missing 3 goal chances in this game and will hopw to convert such chances if they arise this weekend as the knockout stages begin on Sunday. The halftime score of 8 points apiece reflected the tight nature of the game but Tallow cound have been in the lead had they been given that little element of luck and converted some of their chances.
Ballygunner got off to a fantastic start in the second half, scoring 4 points without response. A number of frees kept Tallow in contention along with a superb Evan Sheehan point. They found it difficult to claw back this 4 point deficit fully and trailed throughout the second half. tallow produced some fine passages of play, notably the magnificent point by Paul Kearney midway through the half. As much as they perserved to the end, Tallow couldn't force that vital goal to bring them back into the game and Ballygunner ran out winners 20 points to 16
This weekend we face a teffific Dungarvan outfit, who will be highly confident following their two previous rounds, which they got through winning well. We urge all of you to travel to Dungarvan on Sunday evening as we know they will bring a huge crowd to their home venue. Throw in is a t 7.30pm and we hope to see you all there.
