The senior team had their second outing of the year when we travelled to Quigabar on Saturday evening for the second round of the Benson Cup. We got off to a steady start but midway through the first half we scored a great goal from Brian Lynn. This was followed shortly afterwards by a few quick points from Kevin Langan, and Lynn. Coming up to the half time break Paul Sweeney finished to the corner of the net with a low drive to leave us in a commanding postion of 2-5 v 0-2 lead.
 
However the second half was a totally different story with all effort and bite seemingly left in the dressing rooms. It took us twenty minutes to register our only score in the half a point from play from Brian Curley, which kept us just in front but 2 goals in a minute, the first from a penalty and the second from a bad defensive mixup put our neighbours in command and winning with a score of 3-7 v 2-6.
 
Team: C.Gordon, R.Keane, D.Fox, T.Cawley, D.Carrabine, M.Langan, K.Naughton, P.Kilcullen, Brian Howley, B.Lynn, K.Langan, P.Sweeney, B.Judge, B.Curley, A.Cawley. Subs: F.Barrett, D.Gilmartin, M.Fitzsimons.
