The seniors had the third round of the division 2 league with a game in Corballa on Saturday evening against Calry. A gale force wind blew towards the church end and we had it’s assistance in the first half.
We started strongly and lead throughout the half but lack of ball going into our full forward line was to prove detrimental in the long run. Barry Judge was most unlucky with an effort he beat the keeper with but was cleared by a despairing dive by a vigilant defender. Kevin Langan had six points scored by half time and we lead by 0-7 v 0-4.
 
The second half was a ding-dong affair with the lead changing on a number of occasions. With 10 minutes remaining we looked like we had taken a decisive lead but Paul Sweeneys thunderbolt came back off the crossbar. A minute later Calry got a lucky goal and held on to win 1-12 v 0-11.
