Good Win for Intermediates
Tinryland maintained their interest in this year's Carlow Intermediate Championship with a very easy win over a disappointing Ballon at Dr. Cullen Park on Sunday last. Three first half goals from Alan Barrett, Willie Power and Garry Morrissey enabled Tinryland to lead by 3-6 to 0-1 at half time. It was all one way traffic in the 2nd half also with Tinryland scoring a further 1-5 despite Ballon enjoying the wind advantage. Tinryland went on to record a comfortable win by 4-11 to 1-2. Best for Tinryland were defenders Brian Foster, Barry McDaniel, John Murphy, John Farrell, Noel Scully and Trevor O'Reilly. Damien and Willie Power controlled midfield while forwards Niall Barrett, Garry Morrissey, PJ Murphy, Niall Walsh, Paul Doyle and Alan Barrett were in devastating form. Tinryland's next match is a crunch game against Askea next weekend.
