This local derby attracted a good crowd to Quigabar on Saturday evening despite the horrendous weather. We lost Paul Sweeney and Brian Howley before the start due to illness and injury and things went downhill after that.
We had the elements in the first half and lead by 2 points both scores coming from Kevin Langan. In the 20th minute a dipping shot from Pats deceived our keeper and ended up in the net. Two minutes later Anthony Kilcullen atoned for that by saving a well struck penalty. We hit a number of wides before the end of the half and trailed 0-2 v 1-0 at the break.
The second half we fell away and only scored one point again from Kevin Langan. This was a game where a lot of lads did not do themselves justice, with John Tuffy, Alan Naughton, Michael Langan and Brian Curley keeping going till the end.
Team on Duty: A. Kilcullen, T. Cawley, J. Tuffy, B. Howley, Brian Howley, M.Langan, R. Keane, A. Naughton, P. Kilcullen, J.McDonnell, K. Langan(0-3), A. Cawley, B. Lynn, B. Curley, J.O'Regan
