This was a most disappointing performance from the lads especially after the excellent team display the week before. Easkey were first to all breaks and showed a lot more hunger for the game. Before we knew it we were trailing 4-0 but two Eamon Cawley frees out on the wing brought us back into it. 

However at this time Easkey were in control and with Martin Foody and Jason Earlis having to leave the field with injury, it was no surprise when they broke through for a goal. Shortly after this we nearly snuck in for a goal of our own but Niall Judges pass to Kevin McDonnell fell short. Just before the half time whistle Eoin Kent was pushed to the ground but as there was no whistle play continued and Easkey had their second goal leading at halftime 2-7 v 0-3.

We started the second half much better but at the end of the first 15 minutes we had exchanged points with out opponents but had kicked 6 wides in that time. Kevin Langan got our first score from play with 10 minutes left. 

The team will now be involved in the playoffs for a quarter final place on the weekend of August 24/25
