Glanmire Avenge County Final Defeat to Reach League Decider

Glanmire P2 Central team played Valley Rovers on Wednesday night in Sallybrook in the league semi-final in what was a repeat of the championship final held a few weeks ago. Glanmire started brightly and dominated the first 10 minutes but this didn’t reflect unfortunately on the scoreboard with two points by Oisin Dennehy and Daniel Hogan . Valley Rovers broke the siege and a fantastic counter attack resulted in them winning a penalty which was put away giving Rory Barry goalie no chance.

The two teams traded a point each but then Glanmire playing some if their best football of the season knocked over 8 points and Oisin Dennehy dispatching a well taken goal with Valley Rovers replying with 1 point  just before half-time for Glanmire to go in at half-time on a scoreline of 1 10 to 1 2 .
The second half started with Rovers applying all the early pressure scoring 3 points in quick succession. But the Glanmire defence battened down the hatches again and immense displays by Olan Kelleher and Conor Murphy the captain leading by example and Jack Darcy, Ben O Driscoll and David Murphy took the pressure off the goal area
Beautifully taken scores by Ollie Compton Oisin Dennehy Tommy Lonergan and Cian O Donovan ensured that Glanmire maintained their cushion. The introduction of Mickey Funchion steadied the ship as Mickey tidied up every loose ball and kept the team on the offensive. Valley Rovers, who never gave up, attacked again and again but Glanmire didn’t buckle and ended the game on a scoreline of 1 15 to 1 9.
Every single player on the night gave it everything as the team played superbly but the stand out performers were Conor Murphy, David Murphy, Rory Barry, Jack Leahy, Donnacha McCarthy, Cian O Donovan and Oisin Dennehy with the men of the match tonight being David Mulcahy and Jack Darcy who both played to their very best.
This has been a fantastic week with both teams reaching the league finals coupled with the 2 championship finals. Fantastic achievement by the lads
