It was a fine evening for football.  Macroom got off to a slow start and failed to take chances in the first half. They trailed by 3 points at the interval. This was a game that Macroom struggled to get into, however it wasn’t from the lack of effort by the Macroom Goalkeeper Ciarán ó Sullivan who was kept very busy between the posts. Clonakilty ran out eventual winners on a scoreline of 2-14 to 2-06. Macroom Panel: Odhran O’Regan, Dara

Macroom  0-13   Bantry Blues  1-10
Macroom were the team with most cause to regret missed opportunities and they had Bantry on the rack in the closing stages but just ran out of time.  The point gained was of no benefit in the final reckoning, but Macroom can now face the relegation play-off against Na Piarsaigh with hope, as this display will give them a much needed boost after a hitherto poor campaign.
Macroom started well and Alan Quinn punched over a point after two minutes, and Bantry replied two minutes later.  All Ireland winner Fintan Goold, a wonderful servant of Macroom football, kicked over a free to put his side back in front in the 8th minute, Bantry were level almost immediately from play.  Goold kicked over another free after Eolan O’Leary was fouled, Blues replied, 0-3 apiece after the opening quarter.
Macroom wasted some good goal scoring opportunities through lack of finish but continued to force the pace.  Alan Quinn was unlucky to see his snap shot at goal come back off the butt of the Bantry upright on 18 and a foul on Quinn was punished by a David Horgan pointed free in the 24th minute.  Goold pointed his 3rd free in the 27th minute, Macroom led by 0-5 to 0-3 at the break and it could have been more.
On the resumption, points were exchanged, Eolann O’Leary for Macroom.  The only goal of the game came in the 43rd minute, Bantry added a point and the Blues were really in heaven when another point gave them a lead of 1-7 to 0-6 at the end of the third quarter.
Macroom kept their spirits up and despite two more wasted opportunities eventually got their revival on track with a David Horgan free in the 50th minute, followed immediately by a point from Quinn and then after another Bantry point, Blake O’Gorman sent over for Macroom, 1-8 to 0-9 with seven minutes remaining.  Points from frees were exchanged between Cronin and Goold and Cronin pointed another free in the 60th minute to give the Blues a one goal lead.  Six minutes of additional time were played, dominated by Macroom who had two points from Horgan frees and one from Tony Dineen to level matters but Macroom could not get the winner and time ran out.
Scorers:  Macroom: F Goold 0-4 (fs), D Horgan 0-4 (fs), A Quinn 0-2, E O’Leary (f), B O’Gorman and T Dineen 0-1 each.
Macroom: Brendan O’Connell: Johnny Murphy, Rory Buckley, Don Creedon: Jack O’Riordan, Tony Dineen, Mark Corrigan: Fintan Goold, David Horgan: Mark Hunt, Ethan O’Gorman, Seán Kiely: Eolan O’Leary, Dylan Twomey, Alan Quinn. Subs: Blake O’Gorman for E O’Gorman 40, Caleb Dinneen for A Quinn inj. 52
