Sunday Feb 18th AFL1 St Oliver Plun E.R 2-12 V.S. St Maurs 1-11
Hard luck to our AFL 1 team who narrowly lost to St. Oliver Plunkett ER on the opening day of the league. Despite conceding 2 goals against the run of play in the first half Maurs went in level at half time scoring 5 unanswered points before the interval. The game ebbed and flowed in the second half and Maurs were unfortunate not to score a goal with Conor mc Guire hitting the upright on the 45 minute mark before hitting a screamer of a goal shortly after. Conditions didn’t allow for free flowing football and Maurs were denied a share of the spoils when Ciaran Reddin’s last minute shot was saved at point blank range by the Plunketts keeper. Some solid performances from Seamus and Finbar Harford in defence and Mc Guire and Archer up front.
