Cromane 0-06 Ballyduff 1-15
Cromane Seniors were at home to Ballyduff in round 2 of the County League on Saturday evening last. Cromane were comprehensively beaten by the North Kerry Champions who gave a fantastic exhibition of football throughout the hour. Cromane’s cause was not helped by the fact they had to field without a number of key players. Ballyduff had 2 quick point s from play one each from their corner forwards followed by the only goal of the game which defeated Connie Riordan. Cromane then had a point from play from Colin O’Sullivan but was immediately cancelled out by a point from play by Ballyduff’s corner back. Cromane fought back with 2 pointed free’s from Gary McGrath and a point from play from Francis Casey followed by another point from play by Gary McGrath to leave 2 points between the sides. But in the closing stages of the first half Ballyduff kicked 5 points and Cromane’s only reply was a pointed free by Sean O’Sullivan leaving the half time score Ballyduff 1-8 Cromane 0-6.
In the 2nd half Ballyduff completely dominated and kicked 7 unanswered points. Cromane tried but couldn’t cope with the skill and speed of the Ballyduff side. The final score was Ballyduff 1-15 Cromane 0-6.
