Drumcliffe were visitors to Corballa on Sunday for the fifth round of the division 2 league. Just like the Benson cup final we started very slowly and trailed 1-2 v 0-0 after 10 minutes. 

We slowly began to get a grip around the middle of the field and started to eat into the lead with points from John McDonnell, Niall Judge and Kevin Langan and McDonnell. A very well worked goal from our defence ended with Kevin McDonnell finishing to the net.

We had hit a purple patch and racked up a good number of scores from Michael and Kevin Langan, Kevin McDonnell and Niall Judge. Just at the halftime whistle Kevin Langan intercepted a defensive pass, played it to McDonnell who put Niall Judge in for a goal to leave us in command at the break 2-10 v 1-2.

The visitors scored the first two points of the half though it was an even half our commanding lead helped to ease us through the half comfortably with Paul Kilcullen and Alan Cawley scoring during the half. We finished winners 2-16 v 1-7. 

Team: Anthony Kilcullen, Brendan Howley, David Carrabine, Ronan Keane, Martin Foody, Patrick Naughton, David Fox, Michael Langan(0-1), Paul Kilcullen(0-2), Alan Cawley(0-1), Kevin Langan(0-4), John McDonnell(0-1), Tom Cawley, Kevin McDonnell(1-4), Niall Judge(1-2). Subs: Stephen Kilgallon, Frank Barrett, Brian Howley, Eoin Flynn. 

Next weekend we travel to neighbours Enniscrone for a Saturday evening fixture.
