Nenagh CBS get the better of Coláiste Chríost Rí

Dr Harty Cup

Nenagh CBS 1-19 Coláiste Chríost Rí (Cork) 0-7

Nenagh CBS, with eight Éire Óg players featuring, strolled to a fifteen-point win over Coláiste Chríost Rí in Charleville this afternoon.

Following an opening round defeat suffered at the hands of Thurles CBS (1-9 to 1-16) and then a draw against Hamilton High School (2-9 to 0-15) Nenagh CBS badly needed to win this game. Thurles CBS beat Hamilton High School (3-26 to 0-11) today meaning that Nenagh CBS must beat Midleton CBS should they hope to progress to the knock-out stages of this year’s competition. Even at that Nenagh CBS could miss out on the quarter-finals should Hamilton High School get the better of Midleton CBS in their meeting.

Group three standings: Thurles CBS (played three, six points, +35), Nenagh CBS (played three, three points, +8), Hamilton High School (played three, three points, -22), Midleton CBS (played two, two points, +8) & Coláiste Chríost Rí (played three, zero points, -29).

Nenagh CBS dominated their encounter with Coláiste Chríost Rí match right from the start. Indeed, despite playing with the wind Coláiste Chríost Rí opted to employ a third midfielder in the opening half.

At the break Nenagh CBS led 0-8 to 0-5 having established a 0-7 to 0-1 lead inside the opening twenty minutes. Nenagh CBS ‘keeper Mark Grace saved a penalty in the 21st minute, but despite a late Coláiste Chríost Rí rally the Nenagh CBS lads always looked comfortable.

Nenagh CBS struck for the only goal of the game in the 37th minute when Conor Ryan picked out Tadhg Gallagher with a superb clearance and the Kildangan man lashed a left-handed shot into the roof of the Coláiste Chríost Rí net.

Coláiste Chríost Rí were fortunate that Nenagh CBS concluded the game with five consecutive wides and spurned four terrific goal-scoring opportunities.

Nenagh CBS: Mark Grace (Toomevara), Conor Ryan (Nenagh Éire Óg), Niall Gleeson (Portroe), David Sweeney (Kildangan), Andrew Coffey (Nenagh Éire Óg, 0-1), Jack Peters (Kilruane MacDonagh’s), Darragh Peters (Kilruane MacDonagh’s), Killian Gleeson (Nenagh Éire Óg, 0-1), Jack Keating (Portroe, 0-1), Bob O’Brien (Nenagh Éire Óg, 0-1), Donnacha Quinn (Nenagh Éire Óg, 0-9, 0-4 frees, 0-1 ‘65), Stephen O’Brien (Ballina, 0-2), Andy Dunne (Burgess), Tadhg Gallagher (Kildangan, 1-2), James Mackey (Nenagh Éire Óg, 0-2). Subs: (48th) Shane Hennessy (Nenagh Éire Óg) for Andy Dunne, (49th) Shane Nolan (Toomevara) for James Mackey, (54th) Bill O’Flaherty (Burgess) for Bob O’Brien, (58th) Gary Howard (Nenagh Éire Óg) for Tadhg Gallagher.
