ACFL Div 2 – Pádraig Sáirseil 1-9 Mac Dáibhéid 0-7

The senior footballers came away empty handed from their latest league encounter away to Na Sáirseil at the Bear Pit.

It was Na Sáirseil who dominated the opening exchanges, as they used the ball much better and by the mid way stage lead 0-5 to 0-1 with Gerard Slane scoring our point. The game became a bit more balanced from here on with both defenses limiting scoring opportunities, however on the stroke of half-time Na Sáirseil kicked a crucial goal to give them a 1-5 to 0-1 lead at the break.

We showed much better in the second half and with points from Gerard Slane (0-2), Pádraig McParland and CJ Sullivan we reduced the deficit to a goal. However, three consecutive points from Na Sáirseil put us on the back foot again and despite two further points from Gerard Slane, a final pointed Na Sáirseil free cemented their win 1-9 to 0-7.

Scorers: G Slane 0-5, P McParland 0-1 and CJ Sullivan 0-1
