SENIOR CO. LEAGUE - DIVISION 3 - ROUND 4 2017-07-13 14:39:00

Dry conditions prevailed last Sunday for a 12 o’ clock kick-off in Páirc an Phiarsaigh and the home side were on top of their game from early on with stalwarts Tomás Ó Curráin and Aodháin Ó Conchubhair pointing in the opening minutes of the game.  It was a fast-paced first half, with many runs coming from young Caoimhín Ó Síocháin, which gave the home side the upper hand.  Ballyfilemore’s Alan Smith scored the first of only two points in the first half.  They did however have an opportunity to stay in contention with a ball heading for the corner of the net, but bouncing off the crossfire and back out.  The Pearse’s top scorer Niall Ó Sé hit a purple patch in the second quarter with four points in a row, including a converted 45.  The half time score was Dromid’s 0.08 to St. Michael’s/Filemore 0.02.

The second half saw Dilan Ó Donchú come to the fore, with the first of his three points from play in the second half coming within one minute.  Dominic Ó Súilleabháin had his counterpart Matthew O’ Sullivan well marshalled and when the latter was black carded for a foul on Tomás Ó Curráin, it afforded the full-back the opportunity to score the final point of the game.  Corner back Shane Ó Concubhair also contributed to the scoreline.  Bally had a further re-bound off the crossbar and a number of wides, that never allowed them to claw back Dromid’s lead.  An unfortunate injury to Bally’s Damien Kelly did not help their cause. The final score was Piarsaigh na Dromoda 0.16 to Ballyfilemore’s 0.06.

Skellig Rangers Gerard Murphy refereed the game.
