Senior Hurling ChampionshipTallow 1-14 Fourmilewater 1-13
Tallow and Fourmilewater produced a nail biting encounter in difficult playing conditions on Saturday evening last. Us spectators were just about able to cope with the heat never mind the thirty misfortunes on the pitch. They coped well with it however and managed to come out with a one point victory, the final point being scored by the on form Evan Sheehan. Fourmilewater got the first score of the game after just three minutes to which Jake Neville swiftly replied with one of his own. Fourmilewater followed with two to our one and the game continued with this pattern until Fourmilewater scored their goal. Evan Sheehan put Tallow ahead again mid way through the first half. The first goal of the game came from a rebound following a marvellous save by Shaun O Sullivan and this put Tallow under severe pressure as Fourmilewater followed the goal with three points in a row. Tallow were awarded a penalty approaching the end of the first half. Thomas Ryan stepped up to take and finished it perfectly in the back of the Fourmilewater net. Half time score Tallow 1-5 Fourmilewater 1-8. Tallow trailed by three and had it all to do in the second half. Despite four frees being awarded against Tallow in the first three minutes Tallow looked sharper in the second half. They scored five points in a row with no response. Those points were scored by Darah Buckley, Thomas Ryan, Ian Beecher and Evan Sheehan. The ever solidTallow full back line ensured scores were not going to be given easily at all!! They sent some very intelligent ball to their forwards and so the forwards reaped the rewards. The sides were level with five minutes to go after Fourmilewater pointed a free and this game could have gone either way. Luckily enough Tallow held their composure and Evan tapped over the winner. Fourmilewater sent a long and dangerous ball into the square with one minute to go. This was caught brilliantly on the line by Mark O' Brien and driven into the stand. We didn't mind where he hit it at this stage because the catch was good enough for us. Tallow ran out eventual winners on a scoreline of 1-14 to 1-13. A draw will be made to determine our next opponents so watch this space.
