Tinryland U21 Footballers have no answer to superb Naomh Eoin in Co Final

 By Eamonn Byrne

Tinryland U21 footballers came up against a superb Naomh Eoin Miseal outfit in the Co final at Dr Cullen park on Wednesday 24th August and were well beaten at the end of the sixty minutes. The pattern of this game was formed as early as the 7th minute when the excellent Killian McCabe crashed the ball to the Tinryland net and the amber clad Myshall team raced into an 8 point lead by the 20th minute with Tinryland failing to register a score during that period. It was the 22nd minute before Jeff Sutton opened Tinryland’s account and by half time Myshall led by 2-7 to 0-3 with Naomh Eoin wing back Dinny Joe Regan scoring his sides second goal in the 28th minute and Tinryland only managing two further points via Cathal O’Toole and Padraig Whelan. So superior were the Naomh Eoin men especially in the central diamond between the half back and half forward lines that most Tinryland supporters knew that it would take a miracle in the second half for the boys in blue and white to turn things around. It was more of the same after the restart as Myshall scored the opening two points with Mark Curry scoring a point after only 40 seconds and Garrett Treacy scoring another 90 seconds later.

Michael Mullen who came on as a sub scored two quick points for Tinryland in the 6th and 7th minutes with Padraig Whelan raising another white flag from a free in the 40th minute to leave the score 2-9 to 0-6 with 20 minutes left. The next five scores in the game were all from Myshall and with 5 minutes remaining the score was 2-14 to 0-6. Tinryland were awarded a penalty with 3 minutes remaining but Darren Murphy’s shot was well saved by Ronan Nolan and the last score of a disappointing hour for Tinryland came from Jeff Sutton to leave the final result 2-14 to 0-7. All in all a night to forget for Tinryland who looked so impressive in the quarter final against Michael Davitts and in the semi final against Palatine but truth be told Naomh Eoin were vastly superior on Wednesday and were fully deserving of their victory.

Tinryland: Darren Murphy, Luke Doyle, Conor Byrne, Kevin Barrett, Jeff Sutton, Matthew O’Toole, Cian lawlor, Cormac  Walsh, Padraig Whelan, David O’Shea, Robbie Power, Stephen Reilly, Jack Lowry, Alan Kirwan, Cathal O’Toole. Subs used Michael Mullen, Sean Conlon, James Dempsey, John Dwyer, Greg Murphy.
