Division 2 League: We travelled to Dromiskin to play our neighbours St. Josephs on Sunday morning last in the first fixture of the division 2 league and lost by two points. It was a game that we never really got going in, it took us 23 minutes to get our first score and we had a poor first half. Four points down early in the second half we got ourselves back in the game and level on the scoreboard but just could not stay the course. Next week we play Glyde Rangers in the Grove and hope for a better result, throw in 3pm, all support welcome.
