Match Preview

Colaiste Chriost Rí and Tralee CBS will renew acquaintances on Saturday following last weekend’s exciting drawn games where 80 minutes of end to end action could not separate these two well matched sides.

Colaiste Chriost Rí had the better of the opening half in last Saturday’s drawn game, leading at the interval by three points before stretching that lead to five early in the second half. Tralee CBS then

hit a purple patch, outscoring their Cork opponents by 1-8 to 0-1 to race in to a 1-13 to 0-11 lead with five minutes of normal time remaining. Colaiste Chriost Rí to their credit showed their considerable character and a Darragh Kiely goal and two further points brought the sides level at the end of normal time.

Tralee CBS were the better side for much of extra time, scoring five of the first six points in the additional period to lead by 1-18 to 1-14 with 7 minutes remaining. However, Colaiste Chriost Rí once again managed an improbable comeback, scoring four unanswered points to bring the sides level and force this semi-final to a replay.

Predicting a winner in the replay is a difficult proposition. Tralee CBS had longer periods of dominance in the drawn game but the character and fortitude which Colaiste Chriost Rí showed to retrieve a five point deficit and four point deficit at the end of normal time and extra time respectively could prove crucial if they can sustain this effort across the entire game.

If this game is half as exciting as the drawn game, its one not to be missed by supporters of Cork and Kerry Football.

Kevin Walsh is the referee for this one with a 1pm throw-in at Ballyvourney.
