CHURCHILL 3-08 BALLYMAC 4-09
Played on a very fast pitch in Churchill this was a thirteen a side game as our opponents had not enough players. Again we were guilty of not taking point chances and were 2 points to no score down after 12 minutes. David Long was fouled and Darragh Regan pointed from the free. Tomás O Connor pointed from Robert O Dowds pass. Tomás again pointed when Robert was fouled. Michael Hoare goaled from David Long pass and Robert pointed again from David’s pass.Churchill pointed while Tomas and Darragh Regan pointed for us. Michael Hoare put Tomás through for a fine goal while Churchill got the final point of the half to leave the half time score Ballymac 2-06 Churchill 0-04
On the resumption Churchill got two points with Michael Hoare pointing for us. Our opponents then took over and scored 2-02 without reply inside the next ten minutes.Sustained Ballymac pressure led to a goal from Eoin OMalley. Tomás again pointed while at the other end Churchill got through for a goal. Once again Tomás worked his way through for a point and James Mc Donnell sealed the win with a late goal. Micheál Reidy, Keelan Br osnan and Eddie Rogers worked hard and our subs made a valuable contribution on a day when we did not make life easy for ourselves.
