posted 18 Jul 2011, 01:21 by Bart Barrins
The team travelled to Keash on Sunday evening for this first leg game against Eastern Harps. In the horrendous conditions the team who had lost a number of players the night before in the intermediate championship put up a good effort.
We were against  the wind and rain in the first half and got off to a good start with a point from Patrick Cleary. A number of minutes later Bart Barrins drove a 45 over the bar against the wind and followed this up later with a point from play after being assisted by Diarmuid Howley. Just before the break the visitors got through for a decisive goal to lead 1-8 v 0-3 at the break.
We failed to reduce this lead in the second half and missed two good goal scoring chances late on with only points from frees from Eoin Flynn to show for our efforts. The final score was 1-10 v 0-5. However with the home leg next week and Harps no doubt going to lose some players to Intermediate the team are still in with a chance on Sunday.
Team: B.Feeney, K.Maye, K.Cawley, U.McGranahan, D.Howley, R.Barrett, D.Gilmartin, M.Fitzsimons, B.Barrins(0-2), P.Flynn, E.Flynn(0-2), S.Feeney, P.Cleary(0-1). Sub D.Forde.
