ACFL Division 2 

Well done to the lads who had a hard-earned win over Killoe on Wednesday evening of last week, 2-11 to 2-7, in Monaduff. We trailed at half-time 1-6 to 1-2. The goal came after Pauric Gill came through the middle and placed Conor Keenan who made no mistake with an excellent finish. We fell further behind on the resumption with the concession of a goal but David Collum immediately responded with a toe-poked goal of his own and the team rallied from there to emerge by four points. The team and scorers were as follows: Cody Lee, Paul McGee, JP Farley, Cian Brady, Pauric Gill (0-2), Kaelum Gill, Dean Cosgrave (0-1), Mark Breslin (0-1), Sean Whelan, Jamie Nertney, Conor Keenan (1-2), David Collum (1-0), Martin Cassidy (0-3, 1f), Kevin Whelan, Cian Cassidy (0-2, 1f). Subs used: Mark Hughes, Liam Lynch, Ryan Crowe, Cian Murphy. The league continues this Tuesday, May 21st at 7.30pm against Colmcille in Fr McGee Park.
