Senior Co. Championship FT Austin Stacks 1-13; St. Michaels/Foilmore 2-6.
The rain came at Austin Stack Park just before the throw-in for this first round of the Co. Championship on this Saturday evening (23rd May) and even though it did have a bearing on the play, nonetheless, both sides played some entertaining football in a closely fought contest with no more than four points separating the sides at any one time during the game. Certainly Bally/Foilmore belied their Co. League standing and could still be a force in next week’s round 2 qualifiers. They led only once in the game and that was after just 30 seconds with the opening point of the contest. Just over a minute later Shane O’Callaghan opened our account and David Mannix put us ahead two minutes later. But in the 6thminute the visitors were back on level terms again.
