Parnells opened their Championship challenge for 2017 playing TCG on the 13th August. The game started with great promise as Parnells led in the early stages 0-4 – 0-1. TCG started slowly but edged their way back in to the game as they took scores to equalise. At the end of the first half, TCG led 1-06 to 0-6; both sides were well matched at this stage with only a goal separating them. However the game got away from Parnells at the start of the second half. Both sides started to lack discipline with fouls, yellow cards and after a red card for a Parnells player, TCG could see victory in sight and as they took advantage of the extra man and some precise scoring, Parnells only scored twice. Final score 3-14 to 0-8. The game saw two important players missing through injury for Parnells and certainly performance levels will rise in the two remaining games.
Good luck to the Reserve side playing on the 19th August v Eire Og in the Reserve Championship.
