MUNSTER CLUB INTERMEDIATE CHAMPIONS 2016.
What a heading " Munster Club Intermediate Champions 2016". Read it again, we are what it say's.
Lismore Intermediate panel and mentors travelled to Mallow Gaa grounds last Saturday to take on Kilmoyley of Kerry at 2p.m. in the Munster Club Intermediate Final. Great support for the lads could be seen throughout the grounds with the Black n amber flying and been worn with pride throughout the viewing areas of the stand.
Two mins into the game Lismore were on the score sheet with a pt from a free taken by Mce. Shanahan, his first of the day. Kilmoyley followed shortly with a pt of their own. Some good play by Lismore saw Mce. pass the sliotar to Cider who in turn got his name on the scoresheet. Jack P caught a great ball and another pt for Lismore. Score board read on the 6th min Lismore 3pts Kilmoyley 2pts. We saw what should have been a certain goal from the stick of Dan saved by their goal keeper, however we got a pt by Ray Barry from way out at the sideline area. Both sides exchanged scores, nothing seperating them, only a puck of a ball. 25 mins gone Lismore were ahead by a pt. Half time was approaching with 1 min of injury time was announced. Kilmoyley got the last score of the 1st half, both teams level on 7pts each. Game on.
Within 50sec of the second half Lismore had another pt on the scoresheet. Then we had a goal from corner forward Peter o Keeffe, we were now 4pts clear and going well within all positions of the field. Kilmoyleys first score of the second half came on the 5th min when they scored a pt. Lismore added another pt from a 65. Then shortly after a great pass from Jack to Mce saw the ball been blasted to the back of the net. now score read 2 10 to 09 pts. Brian Bennett came on for Stevie Barry on the 42nd mins , and Jordan was replaced by Ronan Landers on the 46th mins. John Prendergast and Dan Shanahan both got pts from play for Lismore. 56 mins gone Lismore 2 13 Kilmoyley 12pts. 3 mins of extra time was announced. Lismore cleared their bench, bringing on Emmett Quann, Eric O Sullivan, & Ollie Lineen. then full time came with the referee blowing the whistle and Lismore were crowned 2016 Munster Club Intermediate Champions. Full time score Lismore 2 14 Kilmoyley 13pts. Scorers on the day were : Mce Shanahan 1 09 Peter o Keeffe 1 00, Jack Prendergast, Brendan Landers, John Prendergast, Ray Barry, Dan Shanahan, 1pts each.
The team were joined on field by all of our loyal supporters to congratulate them on their fine win and performance on the day. Shortly afterwards the team made their way to the presentation area of the stand where Lismore's Captain Paudie Prendergast was presented with the Munster Cup on behalf of his team mates. Paudie thanked everyone involved with the panel for their tremendous work that was and has been done for and with them over the past number of months.
Homecoming for the victorious team was on Saturday evening when the lads got a Garda escort through the town and were greeted with a fantastic turnout of well wishers. Club Chairman Jimmy O Gorman, congratulated each and everyone who made the day such a success both on and off the field, the team, the mentors, the supporters. Dave Barry Manager of the team spoke also on the night, with Tony Browne Team Coach and Captain Paudi Prendergast also greeting the huge crowd present on the night. Celebrations went on well into the night and i'd be safe in saying the night after as well. Sincere congratulations to all involved.
