THE GAME IN 60 SEC­ONDS

The Corkman - - SPORT -

MAIN MAN

Some out­stand­ing in­di­vid­ual per­for­mances on both sides, young Conor O’Cal­laghan a colos­sus in the Drom­tar­iffe ranks. For Beau­fort, Fer­gal Hal­lis­sey showed re­peat­edly for the ball, apart from shoot­ing 0-6, the no.12 contributed hand­somely all through 80 fas­ci­nat­ing min­utes.

KEY MO­MENT

Hit­ting a sticky patch prior to the in­ter­val, not for the first time in the cam­paign, Beau­fort checked the im­pe­tus of their op­po­nents, chan­nelling their en­ergy through hard work and high tempo foot­ball, 1-4 with­out re­ply in 10 min­utes play mid­way through the sec­ond half erased a six point deficit.

TALK­ING POINT

From a marvel­lous en­counter adorned with ex­cel­lent scor­ing and su­perb in­di­vid­ual per­for­mances, this con­test will re­main in the mem­ory bank for some time. Con­trast­ing routes to get here though as Beau­fort were con­firmed as Kerry cham­pi­ons last May, while Drom­tar­iffe, a dual club, played 16 out of their 17 JAFC and JAHC games since late June.

WHAT’S NEXT?

A short break for Beau­fort ahead of an All Ire­land JAFC semi-fi­nal in mid- Jan­uary. Drom­tar­iffe can bask on a re­ward­ing sea­son, re­warded on el­e­va­tion to in­ter­me­di­ate ranks.
