Junior Football Championship: Tallow 0-7 Affane 3-.7
We played our first game of this years championship in Ballysaggart on Saturday evening last. Inside two minutes Ryan Grey opened our account with a lovely 35 yard right footed shot central of the posts. Affane processed to cut down the heart of our defence and score a goal in response four minutes later. Jordan scored a great forty yard point on the left side of goal in response added to by Kieran with a tidy point just before the first water break. I thought at this point there were some similarties to the Dublin Donegal semi of 2014. We had scored three great long range points and for us to win we would have to score closer to the goal as like Dublin in that game the long rangers won't last (they didn't). On the resumption we played and error prone brand of football. Our foot pass and hand pass were over or under cooked and we spurned a goal chance that fell to the bloodied Shaun O'Sullivan. Affane punished our fouling with pointed placed balls to go two points up before Jordan answered with a long mazy run with a big punt kick that wouldn't look out of place in Aussie Rules.
Indiscipline again handed Affane another score just before half time and as referee Thomas Walsh blew his whistle to end the half with Tallow trailing 0-4 to 1-3 playing with a nice breeze
The second half was a much more heated affair. Five minutes into the second half and Kieran pointed a free. With 80% of the players in the middle third section the exchanges were alot more physical. There was complaining to the referee but players need to man up when things get tougher. Affane got to grips with their game plan and isolating their full forward line worked as they worked the ball up throught the lines and foot passed inside. Jake Beecher hauled down a man going through with ten minutes to go and was sent to the line on a second yellow card. The penalty was struck to the net down the middle of the goals. Another goal followed as they cut softly in on the end line to score. We scored two points late on but these were merely putting a small bit of respectiability on the scoreboard. At the end a nine point defeat was our loss and we will have to be greatly improved to beat Ballincourty on Thursday next at 8.00pm in Bushy park and Kilgobnet in Cappoquin on SUnday at 5.00pm.
