Division 2: We had a very disappointing result last Saturday night in Togher when we lost by seven points but it was more the manner of the defeat that was disappointing. We just never got going and were 2-3 to 0-0 down after 18 minutes, granted is was against a strong wind but when it was our turn to play with it, we never used it. We didn’t register a score in the second half until the 55 minute although there was about seven wides and we did hit the crossbar twice, but this result leaves us looking over our shoulders with only two teams below us in the table.
Team: Stuart Reynolds; Salem Rifaie, Dean Stanfield, David Hoey; Liam Kiernan, Jackie Agnew, PJ Tuite; Sean Cairns, Ciaran O’Brien; Stuart Osborne, Andrew Sharkey, Niall Conlon 0-3(2f); James Clarkin, Conor McGill, Dean Corrigan 0-4.
