The teams second league game was on Saturday with Drumcliffe and this game turned out to be a cracker. The lead changed every few minutes and in the end either team was sure who had taken the spoils. Points from Colin Gordon(2), Barry Judge(2), Ultan McGranahan(2), his first for the club meant we were well in it at the break with the score 0-7 v 1-5.
 
It was tit for tat in the second with our midfielders Fitzsimons and Kilgallon (his first game in over a year) kept the scoreboard turning. Ultan was getting greedy having never scored for the club till this evening so he popped over a third one. However when the visitors scored a goal with 8 mins left to put them up 4 it looked over but we responded with a great individual goal from Barry Judge, and points from Daragh Gilmartin, and Kevin Maye put us in front with minutes to go.
 
A tense finish ensued and Bart Barrins showed all his experience when carrying the ball to the corner flag and holding onto it for what seemed like minutes till the final whistle. The final score was 1-13 v 2-9.
