For the third time in three weeks the two teams again locked horns in the first round of the championship. Having played each other only two evenings before there was a fear that the teams may not be up for the game but the large crowd were treated to an excellent hour of football from two evenly matched teams.

We trailed early on but a goal from Michael Cahill  and an excellent point from Luke Munnelly brought us back to parity. Soon after Ronan Murphy scored an excellent goal after selling two great dummies. But the visitors fought back and by the half time break we were losing 2-5 v 2-2 with Sean Carrabine getting the other point.

We scored two quick points after the break from Odhran Quinn and Luke Munnelly. The team traded goals at this point, ours coming from Sean Carrabine. A crazy three minute spell where we let in 3 goals put us 13 points down but our lads fought back to bring the score back to 3 points with a minute to go with an excellent pile driver from Paul Flynn. However we lost the kickout and Ballymote went up the field to score a goal to secure the game.

Team: Kenneth Flynn, Niall Judge, James Boland, Ronan Coggins, Benny Foody, Danny O'Hora, Sean Carrabine, Paul Flynn, Odhran Quinn, Luke Munnelly, Michael Cahill, Elliot Beardshall, Ronan Murphy. Subs: Oisin Flynn, Dáire Barrins, Brian Mahoney, Fergal Boland, Brian Durkan, James Tully, Colm Naughton
