We travelled to Templeboy on Sunday. It turned out to b a crazy day weather wise with wind and constant rain and driving rain in the second half with the pitch close to unplayable during the seond half and many players on both sides looking like "Bambi on ice" regularly.
We played against the wind in the first and with 5 minutes of the half to go we only trailed 0-4 v 0-2 mostly due to the wayward shooting of the home team. In the last few minutes of the half they got their shooting boots on and finished strongly to lead 0-7 v 0-2 at the half time whistle.
After the break the weather deteriorated so badly that most of the supporters went into the dressingrooms. We got the first score of the half with a point but the home side tackled and harried for their lives and they got a number of vital scores from frees during the half. Eventually we got a major score as an excellent team move was finished to the net left footed by David Carrabine, however it was too little too late.
