A perfect evening for football away in Oxfield park on Saturday evening. Despite losing Niall Judge before the throw in, we got off to a good start with a goal from Paul Sweeney after a good move and an unselfish pass from Kevin Langan. The home team got back level with us halfway through the half and then they drove on to lead by five but 2 late points from Paul Kilcullen and Kevin Langan meant we trailed 1-4 v 1-6.
We trailed by 3 early in the second half but then a very intricate move finished with John O'Regan finishing high into the net, and points from Brian Lynn and Paul Sweeney put us two up with 12 minutes gone in the half however we fell away and did not score again till the end of the half with points from Rory Healy and Brian Lynn. At this stage Ronán Keane and Colin Gordon were carried off with leg injuries. We ended losing on a scoreline of 2-7 v 1-14.
