Súil  Siar   County Novice Quarter Final: Saturday ,May 21st 2010.

Renard and Na Gaeil to do it again. Na Gaeil: 1-12, Renard: 0-15. (after extra time) Easily the pick of the four quarter-finals last weekend as not even extra-time could separate Na Gaeil and Renard and it will have to be settled on another day after a tight and competitive battle on the Tralee pitch last Saturday night.

Paul Daly scored Na Gaeil’s goal in the first half yet Killian Young, John Sugrue and Eoin O’Neill drove the South Kerry side on with the scores level at 1-4 to 0-7 at half time. Darragh O’Neill missed a glorious opportunity for goal in the second half as both Eamon O’Neill and Daly kept the Tralee side’s noses in front and it looked like they would pull off a huge upset as the game reached a dramatic conclusion.

Trailing by one in injury time it looked to be all over for Renard. However Eoin O’Neill saved the day by kicking over the equalising score (1-8 to 0-11) and setting up extra-time.

Na Gaeil edged ahead again by two, but their cause was not helped by Declan Doody’s sending off for a second yellow card. Liam O’Sullivan had amassed a fine personal total of nine frees by the time Paul Daly had seemingly given Na Gaeil victory.

However a ‘45 driven short by O’Sullivan was fisted over by full-back Brendan Casey who dashed all the way up to find salvation for the South Kerry side, which he duly delivered with the final score of a dramatic 80 minutes of football.

Renard can thank their goalkeeper Alan Egan for saving them on numerous occasions but Na Gaeil – for whom David Culloty and Colm Lyons excelled will feel they left the game after them after wasting so many winning positions in the match. It will be a tough ask for them to make amends in the replay down South whenever it is fixed for.

Na Gaeil: Jimmy Cotter, David Ross, Richard Barrett, Eoin Doody, Robert Murphy, Colm Lyons, Niall Lucey, Declan Doody (0-1), David Culloty (0-1), Michael Griffin (0-1), Dermot Flaherty (0-1), Eamon O’Neill (0-3, 1f) Ian McCarthy (0-1), Dan O’Connor (0-1), Paul Daly (1-2, 1f) Subs: John Reen for McCarthy, Seamus O’Neill (0-1) for O’Connor. Referee: Seamus Mulvihill (Ballylongford)
