Os­borne keeps Carnew’s hopes alive

Bray People - - Bray Sport -

Carnew 1-10, Ti­na­hely 2-5: Carnew are in touch­ing dis­tance of lift­ing the League Cup! How­ever, it took a goal by teenager Brian Os­borne with the sec­ond last kick of the game to give them victory over neigh­bours Ti­na­hely at Ti­na­hely on Satur­day.

DIVI­SION 1 The Wex­ford bor­der side are at home to St. Pa­trick’s in their last game next Sun­day and if they win that one they will be level on points with New­town at the top of the ta­ble but a bet­ter score dif­fer­ence would give them the cup.

Lit­tle sep­a­rated the sides at any stage but what lit­tle was in it Ti­na­hely had it.

Ti­na­hely led by 1-3 to 0-5 at half-time and while they missed some chances in the sec­ond-half it did look as if they would hold on for victory.

Then their young mid­fielder Brian Os­borne, who has re­cently been added to Mick O’Dwyer’s Se­nior panel struck for the all-im­por­tant goal to keep their hopes of glory alive.

Carnew are near­ing the end of a long hard year in foot­ball and hurl­ing but if they could add a Se­nior League ti­tle to the In­ter­me­di­ate cham­pi­onship it would make it all worth while.

Carnew scor­ers: Brian Os­borne (1-1); Joe Mur­phy (0-8); Nick Skel­ton (0-1).

Ti­na­hely scor­ers: David Dil­lon and Pierce Bren­nan (1-0 each); Alan Nolan, Kevin D’Arcy, Brian Hickey, Colm Kenny and Paul Ho­gan (0-1 each).
