St. Kevin’s V Confey – Friday 12th June

Hard luck to the seniors last night, beaten by just two points in a hard fought contest. The main difference being that Confey took their chances and two goals led them to a lead of seven at half time. Although in the second Kevin’s pulled it back to just three it slipped back to six before a late last push brought it so close. Kevin’s will rue their chances but should take heart in how hard they fought and played!

Hard luck lads!

Full time St. Kevins:1-14(17) Confey:2-13(19).
