Monday 3rd April we played Mitchelstown in Div 2 football league. Conditions were poor but a tough game was played anyway. Following a few knocks in the previous hurling games we were missing a few players. Heavy ground slowed the play somewhat as both teams found it difficult to make ground. Despite conceding scores early in the first half, we pulled back to be only a point down at half time with the scores being 0-5 to 0-6 in favour of Mitchelstown. Unfortunately in the second half we fell further behind as Town’s football experience and training helped them a lot. A penalty by Kenneth Barry was well saved by the Mitchelstown keeper to which put a dent in our comeback hopes early in the second half. The game finished 0-13 to 0-7 in favour of Mitchelstown.
