Result from Round 11 County League: Skellig Rangers 0-08 Tarbert 2-06. Today's match concludes our County League for 2010. Well done to the team and management for their great league campaign and we look forward to next years Division 2 league.
PRO's report:
County Senior Football League.Skellig Rangers0-09 Tarbert2-06.This was
a vital game at both ends of the table.Skellig needed to win to have
any chance of promotion.Tarbert need to win to have any chance of
avoiding relegation.Tarbert were quickly into thier stride and had
points through Darragh Langen and Kieren Deenihan and Sean
Mcginaly(F).Brian Hickey and Colin O Sullivan responded for
Skellig.Darragh Langen and Daniel O Sullivan exchanged points to leave
the half-time score at 0-04 to 0-03.Skellig should have goaled when
Brian Hickey played a great ball to Aidan O Sullivan in a great
position but his shot went just wide.The second half was 9 minutes
old before Brian Hickey(F) pointed for Skellig.Hickey then put rangers
ahead with another pointed free but tarbert quickly equalised through
Kieren Deenihan(F).Disaster then struck for rangers when a high ball
into the square fell to Dennis Kiely and he blasted the ball to the
net.Tarbert quickly added a point to go 4 in front but Brian Hickey
pegged 1 back for rangers, but the long ball once again payed
dividends for Tarbert as the ball fell once again to Dennis Kiely.His
intial effort was saved but he buried the rebound to give Tarbert a
big boost.To be fair Skellig never gave up and had points from Brian
Hickey(F) and Gary O Driscoll(1 from a free and 1 from play) but it
wasnt enough and Skellig are consigned to division 2 football for
another season.It was a decent campain for skellig and they were
unluckly not to be promoted.
