Tinryland back in contention in Carlow I.F.C.
Tinryland are back in contention in the Carlow I.F.C. following a hard fought 5 point win over Ballon at Hogan Park Fenagh on Sunday last. After the loss to Kilbride in the first game Tinryland needed to win on Sunday to remain in contention and they had to come from behind with 10 minutes remaining before stretching away for a 5 point winning margin. Ballon with wind advantage led by 3 points at half time and when they scored their 2nd goal 5 minutes into the second half Tinryland had a battle on their hands. A purple spell between the 7th and 21st minutes of the second half yielded 4 points without reply for Tinryland and despite a brief fightback by Ballon
The Tinryland lads scored 6 points without reply to win the match on a score of 0-18 to 2-7. Best for Tinryland were Colm Doran who scored 7 points, John Doyle, Noel Scully, P.J. Murphy, Shane OíNeill and Niall Barrett. Tinryland will have two more games in the league stages of the championship against St.Andrews and Askea and will need to win both games to be sure of a semi final spot.
Tinryland Under 21 Footballers will begin their defence of the Carlow Championship with an extremely difficult encounter against archrivals Eire Og in Dr. Cullen Park tomorrow (Thursday) evening at 7.30 pm. All support would be greatly appreciated.
