Glenfarne/Kiltyclogher 3-9

Drumkeerin 0-8

The two teams had already qualified for the Quarter-Finals in this refixed third round game with nothing more than topping the group and local pride at stake last Saturday in Ballinaglera.

Drumkeerin never really got out of the starting blocks in this contest and played second fiddle for most of the proceedings. However the Drumkeerin men did show a somewhat greater degree of effort in the final quarter when they hit five unanswered points and held a rampant Glenfarne/Kiltyclogher scoreless.

A goal apiece from Barry McDermott and Niall Clancy in the closing minutes of the first half put the game out of Drumkeerin’s reach and sent Glenfarne/Kilty into the halftime break with a fully deserved 11 point lead.

Glenfarne/Kiltyclogher got off to a dream start with Enda Gallagher finishing to the net after 51 seconds after Drumkeerin keeper Jimmy Langan dropped a high ball into the path of the in-rushing Gallagher.

Fergal Clancy put Glenfarne/Kilty further ahead three minutes later when he fired over from play. Drumkeerin opened their account when Stephen Gilhooley tapped over a fifth minute free.

However, two more Clancy frees extended Glenfarne’s lead before Edward McTiernan and Conor O’Rourke swapped points. A Colm Clarke free kept Drumkeerin in touch but they were dealt a hammer blow before halftime when Glenfarne twice found the net.
