posted 1 May 2011, 14:08 by Bart Barrins
Saturday evening was a big night in the locality for we had our nearest neighbours Enniscrone as visitors for the senior league. This fixture had not happened in 20 years so a big crowd turned up for the event. The weather was perfect as the game got underway.
 
Kevin Langan had the red and whites in the lead early on but our visitors scored everytime they came down the field and despite us lording midfield our forwards were misfiring. A serious injury to Barry Judge just before the break delayed the short whistle. At the half time break we trailed 0-6 v 0-4, all our scores coming from Kevin Langan.
 
At the start of the second half we got the first score but this was immediately replied to. Seven minutes in a Kevin Langan attempt for a point ended up in the top corner of the net to give us a one point advantage which we did not relinquish for the rest of the game. We still missed a number of easy chances but in the last minute a great overhead catch by Darragh Gilmartin and pass to the onrushing Kevin Langan left him with the simple task of goaling and finishing the game with the scoreline of 2-11 v 0-8.
