Súil Siar    Credit Union Senior Football League Division Four, Saturday April 14th 2012: Na Gaeil V Tousist. In a dress rehearsal for next weekend’s Junior Championship Quarter Final played at Killeen on Saturday evening last, the home side put in a storming 2nd half to blow away Tousist.

The fixture is reversed next weekend as the Tralee side travel south on Saturday for a 6.30 throw in. In this game in Killeen, it was Tousist with the breeze that started the brighter in ideal football conditions and they had three points on the board before Na Gaeil opened their account in the 15th minute.

The important score in this half came from David Culloty who goaled for the local side two minutes from the break following good approach play. The sides retired on level terms 1-04 to 0-07 at half time.

Tousist missed an easy free to take the lead early in the 2nd half and the home side took complete control of matters from here to the finish and fired over eight points without reply before the visitors had their only score of the half from a free in the 24th minute.

The home side continued their 100% record to the 2012 County League with this emphatic victory. Mike Tim O’Sullivan, Dermot O’Sullivan and Alan O’Sullivan had the visitors three points to the good before wing back cum full forward David Culloty opened Na Gaeil’s account at the end of the first quarter.

Peter O’Shea and Alan O’Sullivan added further Tousist points to lead by four. The home side tagged on three unanswered points through Seamie O’Neill, Diarmaid Herlihy and the marauding Eoin Doody to reduce the margin to the minimum. Mike Tim O’Sullivan pointed a free following a foul on himself in the 25th minute but then Na Gaeil took the lead for the first time when David Culloty got on the end of a good move and drilled the ball to the net for the only goal of the game.

Alan O’Sullivan leveled matters on the stroke of half time with a fine point from play. O’Sullivan missed a scoreable free after the break and from then on Na Gaeil took over and fired over eight unanswered points as the visitors completely lost their shape.

Mike Griffin(2), Paul Daly, Eamon O’Neill(f), David Culloty, Seamie O’Neill, Diarmaid Herlihy and substitute Eoghain Sheehy were the scorers. Alan O’Sullivan fired over a 25th minute free for Tousist’s only score of the half. Darragh Collins had the final say when he pointed a free following a foul on himself. Final score: Na Gaeil: 1-13; Tousist: 0-08.
