Intermediate Championship

The Intermediates had 2 championship games over the last few weeks
The 1st round was against The Emeralds in what was also a Relegation Semi-Final. Emeralds had a lightening start with 3 quick points before Walter Walsh had a great 70 yard run to setup Jason Shiely for a vital goal to get Tullogher up and running. Jason and Walter then had further quick points to leave Tullogher Rosbercon 2 points up. Emeralds stayed in the game with great play and points from Aidan Fogarty. Tullogher had further points from Cian O'Donoghue (3), Liam Barron ,Walter Walsh and John Cotterell before half-time to leave the score 1-8 to 0-9 at the break.
It was tight for the 1st few minutes of the 2nd half but great play from Conor Hennessy over a 10 minute spell earned him 3 points. Those scores coupled with frees from Cian O'Donoghue gave Tullogher a commanding lead. Emeralds added a few points from frees but a great goal by Cian O'Donoghue ended the game as a contest. Walter(2)and Cian added further points from play to leave the final score 2-17 to 0-15. It was a great team performance and put us in the quarter final draw.

The Quarter final pitched us against many peoples fancy to win the championship, Bennettsbridge. It was played in Ballyhale last Sat 26th Sept.
The sides traded early scores with the Tullogher scores coming from Ted Cullinane Moling Cotterell and a Cian O'Donoghue free, but Bennettsbridge gradually built a lead mostly through the free taking of Nicky Cleere. The 2 quarter belonged to Tullogher though with points from Walter and Conor Hennessy followed by a great goal by Ted Cullinane to leave the score 1-5 to 0-9 at half-time.
Former county Minor Liam Blanchfield struck for a goal straight after half-time to give Bennetsbridge a great start. The sides traded 2 points each from frees before Ted Cullinane had a great point from play to close the gap. The bridge maintained the 4 point gap though the 2nd half before a great goal by Cian O'Donoghue reduced the gap to 1 point. However Bennetsbridge got a few vital frees to keep their lead before Liam Blanchfield grabbed his second goal with only 1 minute to go in normal time. The referee played 5 mins of extra time but Tullogher couldn't close the gap and the game finished 2-16 to 2-10. The 2 goals being the difference between the side but it really was a game Tullogher Rosbercon could have won.

Minor Championship

The minors played 2 championship games in the past 2 weeks also. 1st round was against St Martins. With the early goals the lads too control and ran out easy winners on a scoreline of 4-13 to 2-8. The quarter final was a lot tighter game and the lads were behind entering the closing minutes. However a great finish by Conor Hennessy game the boys a 3 point win on a scoreline of 3-14 to 4-8.
The semi-final sees the lads face Dunnamaggin on Sat 17th Oct in Mullinavat at 2:30 so best of luck to the boys in trying to make it to the final.
