St Pats B
Our seniors played last Friday night in a backgame of Tralee/St Brendan’s Junior League Ardfert were main scorers in this first half, but we did our best to keep our scores registering throughout this half with one point from Cillian O Riordan and 4 points for Eoin Greaney. Ardfert scored 1 goal and nine points to stay ahead of us going into half time. St Pats 0-05 Ardfert 1-09
The second half started with two points from Ardfert and Eoin Greaney adding two of his own points. Ardfert were quick to add another point, but Martin Savage converted his shot into a point. Ardfert were determined to keep the lead with another point, but Adrian Greaney added another point for us. Ardfert got three points in quick succession, Conor Moore added a point which was to be the last score of the game for either side. St Pats played very well but Ardfert were just too strong and came out the winners. St Pats 0-10 Ardfert 1-16
