Robinstown N.S. 6.07 vs Slane N.S. 3.13
It was the chance for fourth class pupils for some game time in this keenly contested match against Robinstown N.S. in Dunderry GFC. Playing against a stiff breeze Slane went into a two goal lead thanks to quick passing from Ethan Harding, Michael English, Hugh O’Donnell, Senan Duffy and Jason Reynolds. Robinstown were quick to respond with some outstanding goals and lead by 4-05 to 2-01 at half time.
With the aid of the breeze, Slane’s defence had an easier half. Ciall Flynn and Nathan Kenny had mopped up a huge amount of ball and Ben Mc Donagh’s kick outs travelled long distances, usually to Braydon Colfer, who put them over the bar. Despite the team’s best efforts, Robinstown NS ran out winners by three points.
Slane now qualify for the semi finals to be played in the coming weeks.
