The senior team had their first outing of the year in the Division 2 league. Coolaney/Mullinabreena were the visitors to Corballa on Sunday. A strong wind blew into the village end and we played against it in the first half.
We got off to a great start when a good flowing move in the first minute saw Brian Curley finish high into the visitors net. The visitors responded with 2 points but after 10 minutes we netted again when Barry Judge was at the end of a good passing move to finish under the keeper. Before half time, we had 3 more points two from Paul Kilcullen and one from play from Brian Lynn leaving the half time score as 2-3 v 0-4.
We started the second half well especially Niall Judge who scored a total of 5 points in the half. We moved out to a nine point lead but then lost both David Fox and Michael Langan to injury. Despite the visitors putting ina strong finish to the game we finished with a victory on a scoreline of 2-10 v 1-7.
Team: C.Gordon, R.Keane, D.Fox, D.Howley, D.Carrabine, M.Langan, K.Naughton, P.Kilcullen(0-3), A.Naughton, B.Lynn(0-1), K.Langan(0-1), P.Sweeney, B.Judge(1-0), B.Curley(1-0), N.Judge(0-5). Subs: Brian Howley, J.O’Regan, M.Fitzsimons.
Next weekend is the final round of the Benson cup when we have Ballymote as visitors to Corballa for a 12:00pm start though this may change as both our minor team and senior team are down to play on Sunday morning.
