Junior Football:
Tallow 4-10   Affane 1-8
After our opening round debacle we could only improve and so we did. The most heartening aspect of our 2nd round game against Affane, played in Knockanore on Saturday night, was that we had 23 players togged out. Affane were not at full strength and I wouldn’t read too much into results at this early stage anyway but this was definitely an improved performance from Tallow.
Affane got off to a good start, setting the pace in the opening quarter and notched up 3 points. “Gooch” Daly settled Tallow with a well taken opportunist goal and we started to get to grips with the game.  Although we were improving we squandered a number of scoring opportunities. Tallow led by a goal at the break (1-5 to 0-5)
Tallow were more clinical in the second half. Kieran Geary slotted over a point and 2 goals in quick succession from Donnchadh Mulcahy were decisive. At times Tallow flowed well but often turned over possession too easily and took the wrong options. We improve with games and there is room for improvement. Paul O Brien roamed and rampaged as only he can. Jordan Henley, a talented young sportsman, drove forward from centre back at every opportunity. This lad just loves playing. Jake Neville is another young lad with potential and he got on the scoreboard with a well taken point. Sully roamed the wings relentlessly and linked play well. There was a doubt over a Martin Murphy point (I gave it to him). Regardless, he has a great attitude and makes a positive contribution to the team effort.  I nearly forgot to mention Davey Tobin who brought off a few outstanding saves at close range.
If Affane are at full strength and on form they will put it up to any team. Early days but I’d be surprised if they’re not in the final shakeup.
Tallow: D Tobin, E Hickey, B McCarthy, K Fraser, S O Sullivan, J Henley, K Henley, P O Brien(0-1), J Neville (0-1),M Curley (1-1, 1 pen) S Gleeson(0-1), K Geary (0-4), E Sheehan(0-1), D Mulcahy (2-1), T Daly (1-0), J Beecher, S  Ryan, M Murphy (0-1), J Power, A Curley, N Condon, A Buckley, M Tobin.

Last Man Standing
 After 10 weeks of competition the winning line is now in sight. 
We are down to the final 2 of Eamon Tobin and David McGovern. 
2 of the 3 knocked out were left cursing Saido Berahino as his two missed penalties saw West Brom lose and the title dreams of Liam Moroney and Ian Mackintosh crash. 
The 3rd faller and Last "Woman" Standing was Ann Daly was left to rue the missed chances yet again from Arsenal.

Waterford Hurling
After a comprehensive win over Limerick on Sunday last Waterford senior hurlers will play Clare in Semple Stadium on Sunday May 1st. We hope to look forward to an exciting League Final.
