The team travelled to Kent Park on Saturday evening to
take on Drumcliffe in the fourth round of the championship.
Unfortunately the teams dismal run continued. We were reduced to 14
men in the first 2 minutes the team were also under pressure having to
make 5 enforced changes from the last round.
We were down 6 nil after 20 minutes but Biran Howley scored a point from play and a minute
after Kevin McDonnell, making his first team debut smashed a goal to
the roof of the net, to get us back into the game. Just before the
break the referee missed a push on John Tuffy which led to a goal and
the half time score 1-6 v 1-1. In the second half the lads worked
extremely hard and despite missing two close in frees only lost 2-8 v
