Killeagh 3-15 Bride Rovers 0-16

Our first round championship game on Sunday 3rd of May saw us play impressively both as individuals and as a team and this richly deserved victory shows we will still be a force to be reckoned with for the championship ahead. Taking 10 minutes to get going let Bride Rovers notch up 3 points before Davy Kelleher opened our account with a well taken point followed by a Joe Deane free and a point from Padraig McCarthy. Eoghan Loughlin was next on the scoresheet scoring 1-2 in close succession and when Andy Walsh hit the back of the net we were 8 points to the better at half time with the score board reading 2-6 to 0-4.
We held on to our lead throughout the second half with points from Joe Deane, John Fitzgerald, Sean Long and Eoin Loughlin. Our defence was solid and worked tirelessy to the end to prevent Bride Rovers' attack and hold our lead. Andy Walsh goaled again to extend our lead and with a further two points from Joe Deane we had secured our victory on a scoreline of 3-15 to 0-16. This game showed a team effort from both those on the field of play and management on the sideline. Anyone who placed a bet with the odds at 100/1 for us to win the championship, your money is still safe.
