ACFL Div 2 – Naomh Pádraig 0-11 Mac Dáibhéid 0-11

The senior footballers came away with a draw in their most recent league encounter against Naomh Pádraig at Kirkwoods Park.

We started the better and with points from CJ Sullivan (0-2), one a fine effort with the outside of the boot and Pádraig McParland, we established a two point lead after 11 minutes. A Naomh Pádraig point from a free reduced the lead but we kicked on with further points from CJ, Pádraig and Gerard Slane’s first of the evening to reassert our hold on the game. Naomh Padraig tagged on two points before Gerard Slane kicked the final score of the half to see us lead 0-7 to 0-4 at the break.

From the restart Naomh Pádraig took control and within ten minutes, four unanswered points gave them the minimum advantage. However, back we came with a brace of points from Gerard Slane, one a nice fisted effort but again Naomh Padraig levelled with 10 minutes remaining. Both teams struggled to get any rhythm to their game and as such scores were hard to come by. Another Gerard Slane point after good work by Anthony Rowntree restored our lead as the clocked ticked down but again Naomh Padraig pointed, Michael Connolly then looked as if he had got the winner but again a defiant Naomh Pádraig point tied the game and the spoils were shared.

Scorers: CJ Sullivan 0-3, P McParland 0-2, G Slane – 0-5, M Connolly 0-1
