Tinryland Junior B team travelled to Molaise Park in Old Leighlin on Wednesday last 8th April and hovered up the division 5 league points in emphatic style against a disappointing home side.

The pattern of this game took shape in the opening quarter when Tinryland raced into a 7 point lead with the Old Leighlin men failing to score at all in the first half. A pair of points from midfielder Andrew Hanley set the tone for the evening and when Mick Delaney, Conall O’Se, Delaney again and Alan “Benson” Byrne all scored before the 20th minute Tinryland led by 0-7 to 0-0 with 20 minutes gone. With the defence marshalled by the Kirwan brothers Sean and Alan together with Niall Fitzpatrick, Sean Delaney, Adam Mullen, Gary Scully and Eoin Fields, Tinryland goalie Mick Moore had a peaceful evening and by the half way stage the dominance of midfielders Barry Power and Andrew Hanley had ensured that the forwards received enough supply to add on a further 5 points via Hanley, Brian Mullen, Hanley again, sub Rory Doyle and Adam Mullen. Half Time score Tinryland 0-12 Old Leighlin 0-0

The second half followed a similar pattern and when Rory Doyle found the net in the 36th minute the game was out of sight. Further points were added on by Andrew Hanley and Conall O’Se (2) before Old Leighlin opened their account in the 43rd minute. The game had then petered out by this stage but Tinryland added on a further two points from Cathal Whelan and Conall O’Se before the referee brought proceedings to an end. Tinryland Junior B team will be back in action on Wednesday next 15th April with a home fixture against Palatine at 7 p.m. Final score Tinryland 1-17 Old Leighlin 0-1.

Team: Mick Moore, Sean Kirwan, Alan Kirwan, Niall Fitzpatrick, Sean Delaney, Adam Mullen 0-1, Eoin Fields, Barry Power, Andrew Hanley 0-5, Brian Mullen 0-1, Garry Scully, Conall O’Se 0-4, Cathal Whelan 0-1, Alan Byrne 0-1, Mick Delaney 0-3, Rory Doyle 1-1.
