We were off again on Sunday to Cloughduv to be exact a place not far outside Ballincollig where our Intermediates took to the field again this time in the Quarter Final of the Munster Club, taking on the Cork Champions Bandon. Great to look around and see plenty of the Black n Amber on show, A sure sign everyone was behind this panel of players and mentors and were worthy of the support they were getting from all at home and afar. Lismore's first score came from a 65 in the 2nd min of the game from the stick of Mce. Pressure play from Bandon also resulted in them getting a 65 and they in turn pointed as well. Level. Both teams exchanged scores. A free was given to Lismore as a result of a Bandon player picking the sliotar off the ground with his hand, Mce duely scored a pt from this for Lismore. Ray Barry took a sideline in which Mce collected and buried to the back of the Bandon net. Brian Bennett came on for Jordan as he was injured in the 11th min. On Brian's first touch passed onto Mce and again GOAL his second of the day. Score now reading 2 03 to 02. A good passage of play from Bandon just before half time gave them a a ,goal, now 2 04 1 03. Half time score Lismore 2 10 Bandon 1 06.
Mce got the first score of the second half a pt from a free. Both sides exchanged pts and John Prendergast got his name on the scoresheet, followed by another from Ray Barry. A free to Bandon put pressure on the Lismore backline but there was no way through for them and their effort on goal was saved brilliantly. More pts from Peter O Keeffe and Brendan Landers extended the Lismore lead now reading 2 16 to 1 04. Lismore made some changes with Ronan Landers, Ollie Lineen Sean Reaney, coming on for Mce, Peter & Minty,. What a great day for Lismore hurling. Final score Lismore 2 20 Bandon 1 07.
