Footballers round 4 tie ends in a draw
The footballers faced local rivals and county champions St.James in round 4 of the group stages in O'Kennedy Park on Saturday August 6th with the game ending in a draw 1-5 to 0-8.
In poor conditions it was not surprising that the contest was a low scoring, dogged affair low on quality.
After a decent opening, St.James took over until the final quarter when a David Shannon goal put us one point ahead.
We were holding on, in part due to some heroic defending, but also to St.James wastefulness until nearly the eigth mintue of added time when St.James pointed from a free.
The draw leaves us with our championship destiny in our own hands as we face St.Annes in the last group game with the winner progressing to the quarter final stages.
