Yellow Furze took the honours with a great second half performance in this Navan Area League game in Slane last week. The teams were very evenly matched in the first half with Yellow Furze leading 5-04 to 4-02 at half time, aided by a strong breeze.
In the second half they defended very well, not allowing Slane the time to shoot and moved the ball very quickly up to the other end of the field where they scored a number of goals to put the game beyond Slane.
The most notable thing about the game was the level of sportsmanship by both teams. In a very hard fought contest, the game was very clean with no complaining form either team. Slane deserve great credit for not giving up all the way to the finish.
Because of results elsewhere, Yellow Furze go forward with Kentstown NS to the semi finals. We wish them both well.
