The senior team had their second outing of the year in the Expert Electrical Division 2 league with a trip to Ballymote on Saturday evening. In near perfect conditions a good game took place with plenty of bite and industry from both sides.
 
We moved into an early lead with points from Kevin Langan, Niall Judge and Paul Kilcullen. Kevin Langan was taken down for a penalty en route to goal and this was expertly finished off by Paul Sweeney. Further points from Langan meant we went in at the break leading 1-6 v 0-4.
 
Kevin Langan started off the half in good fashion with two long range points and with Alan and Tom Cawley along with David Carrabine having good games and David Fox in control at full back we did not look in trouble in the half. A second goal, an own goal after a ricochet from a save by the keeper hit a defender from a strike from Kevin Langan put us in a strong position. However the home team came back strongly and it took points from Brian Lynn and David Carrabine to ease us over the line winning with a scoreline of 2-12 v 0-11.
 
Team: C.Gordon, R.Keane, D.Fox, T.Cawley, A.Naughton, D.Carrabine(0-1), A.Cawley, Brian Howley, P.Kilcullen(0-1), B.Lynn(0-1), K.Langan(0-8), P.Sweeney(1-0), B.Judge, N.Judge(0-1), B.Curley. Sub: K.Naughton. 
Next weekend in the third round we have Calry as visitors to Corballa on Saturday at 6:30pm.
