This game was played last Friday evening. The driving rain did quieten down during the game but handling for both teams was a lottery as the heavy evenings rain had made conditions very difficult for both teams.
The visitors broke through for a goal in the first minute and soon followed with a point. An excellent piece of individual play by Luke Munnelly ended with him driving to the net. This was followed shortly with another goal after Odhrán Quinn was first to respond to a ball off the post. Seán Carrabine added a point but at the half time whistle the visitors lead 2-2 3-5.
We got off to a great start to the second half with a great goal by Paul Flynn after a driving run in from the wing. This was quickly followed by a Luke Munnelly point. However the visitors took over then and extended their lead. In the last number of minutes we got through for a consolation goal.
Despite the loss it was a good performance from our very young team (with 4 u10s playing), and with a bit more team play the score could have been closer.
Team: Elliot Beardshall, Fergal Boland, James Boland, Thomas Howley, Paul Flynn, Brendan Foody, Seán Carrabine, Mícheal Cahill, Danny O'Hora, Luke Munnelly, Kenneth Flynn, Odhrán Quinn, Dáire Barrins, Oisín Flynn, James Tully.
The team have a home game next Friday evening versus Enniscrone
