IHC Ballygarvan 2-13 Eire Og 1-7

White inspired as Ballygarvan run riot INSPIRED by some excellent performances from Joe Spillane, Ger Spillane and Stephen White, Ballygarvan overwhelmed Éire Óg in the second round of the Evening Echo Cork County IHC at Brinny yesterday. The two Spillanes were majestic in the heart of the Ballygarvan defence while White, scorer of seven points, had an outstanding game at midfield as Ballygarvan, despite being reduced to 14 men in the last quarter following the dismissal of corner-forward Gary White, toyed with their opponents. Éire Óg were the first to score when full-forward Daniel Goulding pointed in the opening minute. With Ger Spillane in tremendous form at centre back and Stephen White ruling midfield, Ballygarvan quickly took control as Éire Óg, who lost the services of Cork minor Ciarán Sheehan with a back injury, failed to score again until the last minute of normal time in the first half. And with White contributing 0-5, including three from long-range frees and one from a 65, Ballygarvan led by 0-8 to 0-2 before shattering Éire Óg with two injury time goals from David Bouse and Damien O’Sullivan just before the break. Seconds after the resumption, Gary White extended their lead to 2-9 to 0-3 and there was no way back for a bitterly disappointing Éire Óg side. It was 2-11 to 0-3 before Éire Óg finally responded entering the last quarter with four points without reply. Three came from frees by Gary O’Flynn and one from play by substitute Paul McDonagh. Although Gary White received a straight red card for a bad challenge on Shane McCarthy, Éire Óg could not breach a superb Ballygarvan rearguard. Stephen White brought the curtain down with two pointed frees before Daniel Goulding grabbed a consolation goal at the death. Scorers: Ballygarvan: D. Bouse 1-0, D. O’Sullivan 1-0, S. White 0-7 (0-5 frees; 0-1 65), G. White 0-3, W. McCarthy, M. O’Riordan, C. O’Connor 0-1 each. Eire Óg: D. Goulding 1-1 (1-0 free), G. O’Flynn 0-3 (0-3 frees), T. O’Leary 0-2, P. McDonagh 0-1.

Junior A County Hurling Semi Final 2nd Replay

Junior A County Hurling Semi Final 2nd Replay Ballygarvan 2-20 Kilbrin 1-20 And so nearly four hours later it is finally over, and Ballygarvan have progressed to the final of the Junior A hurling county and a meeting with Grenagh next Sunday. This trilogy of games and this team will long be remembered in the annals of Ballygarvan GAA long after the dust has settled on this terrific achievement. The game was uncanny in the way that it unfolded, almost identical to the other two encounters in every way. Kilbrin came out of the blocks with all guns firing again and took the game to the men in red for the first half. After ten minutes the score stood at 0-4 to 0-2, with Liam Dillon and Shane O Leary accounting for the Ballygarvan scores. Despite being sluggish enough, Ballygarvan managed to stay with the men from Duhallow for most of the half, with Liam Dillon, Ken Ashman, and Alan Butler knocking over fine scores to leave the score standing at 0-12 to 0-7 approaching the break. However disaster then struck with the concession of a goal on the stroke of half time to leave Ballygarvan again facing a mountain at half time for the third time in three games. The second period opened brightly with a Liam Dillon point right from the off. However Ballygarvan found it difficult to plug back a dogged Kilbrin and despite two Liam Dillon frees the gap remained at eight points, 1-15 to 0-10 with nine minutes remaining. However as with the previous games, Ballygarvan refused to panic. Gary White grabbed a vital goal to give the men from Carrigdhoun hope and this was quickly followed by three pointed frees from Cian O Conchuir and Liam Dillon. Ballygarvan were still two points down with two minutes remaining, and the task was made even harder by a Kilbrin point going into injury time. And so yet again, Ballygarvan faced the need to grab a goal in the dying moments of the game and lightning struck for the third time and what a goal it was. Morgan Sheehy made a tremendous block down in the right corner and fed Michael Dowd, who in turn quickly fed Liam Dillon who blasted the ball to the Kilbrin net. It had happened again and extra time beckoned again. Straight from the off Liam Dillon put Ballygarvan in front, incredibly the first time they had led for the entire three games. It was a lead that was never relinquished as Ballygarvan appeared to be the far fitter team, and points from Ger Spillane, Stephen White and Ken Ashman further underlined their supremacy. At half time in extra time, the score stood at 2-16 to 1-17 to Ballygarvan. Kilbrin fought hard in the second period but Ballygarvan were not to be denied and booked the place in the final with points from Ger Spillane and Liam Dillon in the final period. Team: Joe Kennifick, Donal Sweeney, Joe Spillane, Barry Keohane, Robert Bouse, Ger Spillane, Cian O Conchuir (0-1), Finbarr Barry, Brian Daly, William O Halloran, Shane O Leary (0-1), Ken Ashman (0-2), Morgan Sheehy, Alan Butler (0-1), Liam Dillon (1-12) Subs Used: Stephen White (0-1), Gary White (1-0), Michael Dowd, Damien O Sullivan, Pat Donnelan, Donal Browne.


Junior A County Hurling Final

Junior A County Hurling Final Nov 14th Ballygarvan 3-7 Grenagh 1-12 The 14th of Nov will long live in the memory for Ballygarvan who created history by defeating hot favourites Grenagh in the Junior Hurling County Final in Pairc Ui Chaoimh. After three epic encounters with Kilbrin, Ballygarvan were quietly confident going into the game despite being written off by most sources. Ballygarvan began brightly with a Michael Dowd point and a Liam Dillon free to leave them two points to the good after ten minutes, before Grenagh struck back with a well taken goal. As usual this team didn’t panic and were soon level from a Cian O Conchuir point. The next ten minutes saw the match too and fro, and points from Liam Dillon and Shane O Leary kept Ballygarvan in touch 1-5 to 0-5 approaching half time. Shane O Leary then struck a marvellous shot to roof of the Grenagh net, to level the game, and shortly afterwards Ken Ashman again found the net to leave Ballygarvan in a very strange position for this team, leading 2-5 to 1-5 at the break. The second half started perfectly for the men from Ballygarvan when a long range free from Alan Butler dropped in around the house for Shane O Leary to first time the ball to the net. Grenagh then started their comeback and scored five points without reply to leave just the minimum between the sides with ten minutes remaining. Liam Dillon soon steadied the ship with a free before Gary White scored a terrific long range point to leave the score at 3-7 to 1-11 entering the last moments of the game. Grenagh brought the deficit back to a single point before with the last puck of the game Tom Kenny missed a long range free, to tie the game. The referee blew the whistle for full time following the resultant puck out to spark huge celebrating on the pitch from players, mentors and supporters. Captain Joe Kennifick gleefully accepted the cup on behalf of Ballygarvan and in his speech he thanked everybody involved with the fantastic achievement. After the game a lovely meal was received at the Great Southern Hotel Cork Airport before an open top bus brought the victorious team back to Ballygarvan via Five Mile for a long week of celebrations.

Munster Junior A Hurling Quarter Final

Munster Junior A Hurling Quarter Final Nov 28th Ballygarvan 1-13 Knockaderry (Limerick) 1-9 The bandwagon just keeps rolling on for this amazing Ballygarvan Junior hurling side, with a victory over the Limerick county champions Knockaderry on Saturday last in Ballygarvan. The pitch was in great considering the rain that we had during the week and it lead to fine open hurling in the first half. Ballygarvan got the perfect start from the stick of Shane O Leary. Further points from Liam Dillon left the score 0-3 to 0-1 after ten minutes before the impressive Finbarr Barry scored two great points, the first from the middle of the field, and the second a beautiful sideline cut from the 45 meter line. A further point from the hard working Morgan Sheehy left the score at 0-6 to 0-3 with five minutes to the break. Presently another massive sideline from Finbarr Barry was struck first time to the net by Michael Dowd and last minutes points from Liam Dillon and Morgan Sheehy left the score at 1-8 to 0-5 in favour of Ballygarvan at the break Ballygarvan got the ideal start to the second half from a Liam Dillon pointed free. The game then developed into a dour struggle with the underfoot conditions becoming heavy. Stephen White and Liam Dillon kept the scoreline moving in the right direction for Ballygarvan. The score stood at 1-11 to 0-9 with ten minutes to go before Joe Kennifick brought off three great saves in as many minutes to keep daylight between the sides. Then a long range free finally got the better of Joe Kennifick who unfortunately damaged his thumb in the process and had to leave the field. However two pointed frees from Liam Dillon sealed the win for Ballygarvan and they now advance to a semi final meeting with the Kerry intermediate champions Kenmare in Kenmare next Sunday afternoon at 2.30 in Kenmare. Team: Joe Kennifick, Donal Browne, Donal Sweeny, Barry Keohane, Robert Bouse, Cian O Conchuir, Alan Butler, Finbarr Barry (0-2), Ger Spillane, Ken Ashman, Shane O Leary (0-1), William O Halloran, Morgan Sheehy (0-2), Michael Dowd (1-0), Liam Dillon (0-7).

Through to Final of Muskerry League

Ballygarvan 1-15 Blarney 2-4 Ballygarvan's successful run in the inaugural Carrigdhoun/Muskerry junior hurling league, continued at Ballinhassig on Sunday last, when they deservedly defeated Blarney in the semi-final and so qualified to meet Ballincollig in the final of this outstanding competition, in which 114 games had been played prior to the semi-finals. A feature of Sunday's game was the magnificent performance of Ballygarvan's Joe Kenefick at centre forward, who contributed nine points of his side's total, while his colleague at top of the right, Dermot O'Sullivan, was another to catch the eye. Defeated by the eventual divisional champions, Tracton in the South East championship, Ballygarvan have indeed spiritedly cast that disappointment aside, and since then have turned in some fine performances in the league. Displaying greater commitment in the opening half, the South East side, led at the break by 0-8 to 0-3, but despite the aid of a slight breeze, they did not open up that margin until the closing minute of the half, when thanks to Joe Kenefick they led 0-3 to 0-2 after sixteen minutes. At that stage Blarney were best served by Anthony Murphy and John O'Flynn, but despite some good effort outfield the finish of the full forward line did not appear to be on par. , led at the break by 0-8 to 0-3, but despite the aid of a slight breeze, they did not open up that margin until the closing minute of the half, when thanks to Joe Kenefick they led 0-3 to 0-2 after sixteen minutes. At that stage Blarney were best served by Anthony Murphy and John O'Flynn, but despite some good effort outfield the finish of the full forward line did not appear to be on par. Ballygarvan's superiority in the second quarter was established on the score board when Dermot O'Sullivan pointed the 23rd and 27th minutes, the first score being a real classy effort, when from an acute angle he jumped high to gather, and in a singular movement, turned and whipped over the bar in style, to give his side a 0-6 to 0-2 lead at that stage. Following the resumption the game proceeded at a cracking pace, when followed a Joe Kenefick point from a free within seconds we were treated to at least eight minutes of non-stop action. An exchange of points by the tenth minute saw Blarney come more into game and the possibility of a take-over by the Mid Cork men looked on the cards. Despite the fine defensive work of the Ballygarvan line, in particular 'keeper Barry Ryan and full back Jim O'Halloran, together with Michael Brady at centre back, Blarney came within three points when Anthony Murphy converted a semi-penalty in the 45th minute. Again the skill and accuracy of Dermot O'Sullivan and Kenefick restored Ballygarvan's lead by the 50th minute, but one minute later the Muskerry men notched their second goal, when in a melee John O'Flynn applied the finishing touch. Following this the losers had a wonderful chance of narrowing the day to two points when from a 20m free they went for a goal which was saved and cleared out to midfield from which Barry Kidney struck a mighty long range point for the winners in the 56th minute. Cushioned by that four point lead, Ballygarvan solidified their position still further with another perfectly struck point 50m out on the sideline and a major by full forward Sean O'Halloran when he dribbled the ball around the keeper and then struck it to the net, to bring down the curtain on a contest which was played in heavy conditions, with real championship fervour. Scorers: Ballygarvan: J. Kenefick 0-9; Dermot O'Sullivan 0-3; S. O'Halloran 1-0; L. O'Halloran, M. Walsh and B. Kidney 0-1 each. Blarney: A, Murphy 1-4; J. O'Flynn 1-0. Ballygarvan: B. Ryan, J.
