Both Emmets and Rahillys had seen a large exodus of players over the summer months however Emmets seem to be recovering more quickly as they recorded their second league win of the year in this ninth round county league division one clash held in Frank Sheehy Park, Listowel on Saturday evening.
A more or less full strength Emmets side burst into this game seemingly full of confidence with a first minute point taken by Conor Cox. Emmets set the tempo and the standard in this game from the outset with a fast, open and entertaining game of football played in an overcast evening in Listowel.
The first half to use the cliché was end to end stuff with Rahilly’s responding well to Listowels excellent combination play. Rahillys wing back Cian Sayers scored a second minute goal to put them ahead briefly only to see this lead cancelled out almost instantaneously with a right footed goal taken by Emmets corner forward David Keane in the 7th minute. The first half continued in this fashion with both sides trading scores until Cox smashed the ball to the back of the net on the 27th minute to see Listowel Emmets go in at half time leading 2-7 to 1-7.
Emmets it must be noted moved the ball superbly in the first half with Noel Kennelly and Sean McCarthy also chipping in with a couple of well taken points in the 15th and 27th minutes.
The second half saw the flow of the game broken slightly with a number of injury stoppages. Again, Emmets opened the scoring with a speculative goal from Sean McCarthy in the 31st minute. Rahillys only managed to score one point from play in the second half coming from Declan Quille on the 50th minute. Quille scored the Narries only other two points from frees taken in the 41st and 49th minutes.
Emmets dominated the second half and retained possession well. Whilst Cox was accurate from free’s for Listowel this was a formidable team performance from Listowel. Their passing was accurate and effective and they showed maturity in closing out the game in the final ten minutes.
This result gives a lifeline to Listowel for Division one survival this year whilst Kerins O’Rahillys mid table security probably shone through a bit in their second half performance.
