LIKE a Hollywood franchise that continues to improve, Kilkerrin-Clonberne and Carnacon delivered another blockbuster last Sunday with a cliff-hanger finish ensuring next Sunday’s episode will be eagerly awaited.

Make no mistake, this was the game of the weekend! Probably the game of the year! Eleven goals were shared, five penalties were converted, two red cards were handed out by referee John Niland, two more sin bins occurred and the sides were level 11 times over a memorable hour.

Supporters were enthralled by events unfolding even if the respective managers John Fleming and Jimmy Corbett couldn’t take enjoyment. Both teams looked home and dry, they both looked destined for defeat and they both didn’t know what to make of it at the final whistle.

The talk beforehand inevitably centred on Australia-bound Cora Staunton and her contribution stole the national headlines.  The ten-time All-Star kicked as many points from play, struck three penalties and even landed a long range free underneath the crossbar seven minutes from time.
