Defeat for Ard Scoil Ris in Harty Cup opener as John the Baptist begin campaign today

Ard Scoil Rís fell to a 4-20 to 3-17 defeat at the hands of Our Ladys Templemore in the first round of the 2020 Harty Cup in Nenagh.

In a clash between the champions of 2017 & 2018 Ard Scoil started the brighter and raced into a 0-3 to 0-1 lead.

That was out to 0-9 to 0-5 by the 20th minute with Cathal O’Neill accounting for six of that tally.

Templemore would respond emphatically over the next five minutes, notching 1-4 without reply to take a 1-9 to 0-9 lead.

Ard Scoil replied with a goal from Shane O’Brien as the sides went into the break level at 1-11 apiece.

Templemore got the opening goal of the half on 33, but Ard Scoil responded well with just a single point between the sides with fifteen minutes remaining.

However, once again Templemore would hit a purple patch scoring 2-4 without reply to push them into a commanding 4-18 to 1-16 lead.

With injury time approaching, Templemore lead by 4-20 to 1-17 before a brace of goals in quick succession from O’Neill reduced the deficit to six points.

However, it was too little too late for the Limerick side who would suffer defeat.

Quarter Finalists from last year, John the Baptist Community School in Hospital begin their campiagn today with a clash against Nenagh.

That games throws in at 1.30pm in Cappamore today.
