Austin Stacks Report
One could use many of the sporting clichés to describe this round 10 Co. League game, played at a drizzly and breezy Waterville on Saturday evening (27th Sept). Like ‘a win is a win’, or ‘it’s good to win when you are playing poorly’ or ‘it’s good to get a bad game out of your system’.

But Austin Stacks did win, to maintain their unbeaten run in this season’s Co. League – so far, their best League season, from a results point of view, in 35 years. They had a brilliant start. Wayne Guthrie, who had another very good game, won the throw-in and after a patient build-up Daniel Bohan punched over the opening score after 35 seconds. Still inside the third minute, David Mannix had slotted over another two in quick succession. Then Waterville got going and between the fifth and eighth minutes had drawn level with three good points. Between then and half time, Stacks added another three, to two for the home side – Stacks’ three coming from Shane O’Callaghan, Greg Horan and Mikey Collins - to leave them one ahead at the break (0-06 to 0-05).

Both sides had a point each within five minutes of the resumption – William Kirby on target for Stacks. Stacks had to wait another 17 minutes for the next score – a brilliant long-ranged effort by Wayne Guthrie. Mikey Collins added another five minutes later for what turned out to be the last score of the game.

Round Ten of the Credit Union Sponsored Co. League was played in Currow last Saturday evening where the home side took on Listowel Emmets.

Scorers for Currow Mike Mc Carthy (4 points) Dan O’Sullivan (1 point) and Garrett O’ Connor (1 point) and for Listowel Connor Cox (4 points) Brian Murphy (1 point) And Noel Kennelly (1 point).
The second half had a little more urgency about it and by the fifteenth minute the sides were level again at 1-8 each. Connor Cox was the main scorer for Listowel although Dan O’ Shea and Mike Mc Carthy kept the score board ticking over for Currow with some well taken points from placed balls and Pa Mc. Carthy chipped in with a goal. Noel Kennelly got the goal for Listowel and a couple of points. The final score was Listowel Emmets 1-13 Currow 1-09. Dan O’ Sullivan had an excellent game at full back and Garrett O’ Connor played midfield for the first time and played quiet well. This result sees Currow relegated to division two for 2015.
