Senior Co League Div 5: Ballyduff 2-12; Austin Stacks 0-12.
On a fine sunny evening in Ballyduff, on this Saturday evening (12th Aug), our B team had to give way to a physically stronger local side in the second last round of the Co. League. Despite the defeat our lads played well as a unit with some fine individual performances also. Barry Galvin couldn’t be faulted for the goals and made one spectacular save on the stroke of half time at the end of which Ballyduff led by 1-8 to 0-8.
All our six backs did exceptionally well also, defending superbly and giving some great balls in to our forwards. At centre field both Craig Corcoran and Ciarán Flanagan fielded some mighty balls at times, and up front all our six starting forwards got on the score sheet.
Our three substitutes, Kevin, Ronan and Micko did very well also with Micko linking superbly with Dylan Harnett mid way through the second half for a great point.
Team: Barry Galvin, Brandon Patterson, Cathal O’Reilly, Seán Tansley, Andrew Morrissey, Dylan Harnett (0-1), Daniel Bohan, Craig Corcoran, Ciarán Flanagan, Eoghan Galvin (0-1), Seamus Bastible (0-3 – two frees), Fergal Ryan (0-1), Dale Counihan (0-3 – one free), Cian O’Sullivan (0-1), David O’Sullivan (0-2).
Subs used: Kevin Murphy, Ronan Carey and Micko Horan (all at 35m).
We now turn our thoughts to the Town League semi final against Kerins O’Rahillys which is due to go ahead in Connolly Park on next Friday evening (18th Aug) at 7.30pm.
