Despite the scoreline this was a much improved performance from the team and the third quarter proved to be the time when the game was lost. It was a messy evening in Dromard but the most encouraging aspect was the fightback the team made in the final quarter.

We put in a good shift in the first quarter and finished it trailing 5 v 2 with our scores coming from Andrew Blakeney and Oisin Flynn. in the second quarter with a little more effort we stayed in touch and turned over at ht 8 v 5 down with our scores coming from Dáire Barrins, Ronan Wilson, and another from Oisin Flynn.

The third quarter was were it all went wrong where we failed miserably to match our opponents turning over trailing 15 v 5. The lads redeemed themselves in the fourth quarter with some great linkup play and good tackles being put in throughout the pitch, losing 7 v 18  with scores coming from Oisin Flynn and a well worked point from James Tully after good interplay with Matthew Blakeney. 

Our next game is away to Geevagh

Team: Ross Gilmartin, Owen Gillard, Fergal Boland, Brian Durkan, Dáire Barrins, Andrew Blakeney, Ronan Wilson, Rian Winters, Oisin Flynn, Matthew Blakeney, James Tully.
