Beara CS v SMI Newcastlewest

Friday April 29th

Beara CS played NCW in Fossa GAA Club Killarney last Friday. They got off to a great start with a green flag in the first minute, after great teamwork set up Ciarán O’Sullivan to finish the move. NCW opened their account with a point in the third minute but another 1-01 from the Beara lads, the goal by their captain Jason Harrington, had them six ahead with fifteen minutes played. NCW had a point on sixteen minutes but Beara CS were dominating the game possession wise, however the scores weren’t arriving like their management would have wanted. Good defensive work by the Cork boys kept the NCW forwards from adding to their score until a point in the penultimate minute during which time Beara CS had a further four points accumulated. The final two scores of the half went to Beara too which meant a half time score of 2-06 to 0-03.

The sides exchanged points at the beginning of the second period but a NCW goal in the sixth minute gave them a lifeline. Following a terrific run in the eight minute, Jason Harrington was subjected to a late challenge which saw the NCW wing back black carded. Jamie O’Neill converted the free to make the score 2-09 to 1-04. NCW had the next white flag but after a great foot pass by Neil O’Sullivan, Kieran Higgins found himself in front of the goal with a defender and goalkeeper to beat. This he did superbly and Beara CS were ten points ahead with sixteen minutes remaining. NCW had no option now but to go for broke and to their credit they did. Three points in as many minutes had them believing in victory again and the concession of a very soft goal by the Beara lads in the twenty first minute increased this belief. Beara CS showed great work ethic in the final minutes to close down the NCW team and though they spurned a few chances of scores they didn’t concede the goal that the opposition badly needed. At the final whistle Beara CS were victorious by two points, 3-09 to 2-10 and they achieved an outstanding double of senior and junior Munster C’ships this year.

U12  Castletownbere V Garnish
Town took on neighbours garnish in droum on Friday evening in the beara league. On a beautifully manicured pitch with a strong cross field breeze the town lads took a while to settle. A score after 5 minutes set up  a confident performance for the team.  They played to their strengths with accurate passing, plenty of movement off the ball, strong consistant defending and determined play all around the field.
