On Friday last out seniors had Rathcline as visitors to Pairc na Gael in round 3 of the All County league. Pitch conditions were good despite the amount of rain that had fell during the day. We opened the scoring with a James Martin pointed free. This was followed almost immediatly by a Gary Maguire goal. Rathcline responded with a point from play. Dromard raised the tempo and we able to land an unanswered 1-3 with the goal coming from Francis Mc Gee and the points coming from James Martin (free), Ross Mc Nerney and Declan Mimnagh (free). While the visitors did have their chances to add scores but they were unable to find their range. A pointed free was their reply but another Francis Mc Gee goal brought the half's scoring to conclusion. The half time score was Dromard 3-4 Rathcline 0-2. A Declan Mimnagh point from play extended our lead. The Lanesboro men landed a point before both teams exchanged 3 points. Declan Mimnagh broke through the opposition defence to find the net. Both sides added a point apiece. It was at this point the game was abondoned due to lack of light. The score at the this stage was Dromard 4-8 Rathcline 0-6. Team and scorers. Damien Sheridan, Paul Mc Gee, Peter Masterson, James Mimnagh, Micheal Reilly, John Sheridan, Peter Reynolds, Bernard Sheridan, Cian Mimnagh (0-1), Emmet Masterson, James Martin (0-2) 2 frees, Francis Mc Gee (2-1), Ross Mc Nerney (0-1), Declan Mimnagh (1-3) 2 frees, Gary Maguire (1-0). Subs used. Noel Reynolds, Donie Conefrey, Kieran Mc Stay, Gavin Mc Nerney and Niall Mc Manus. On Saturday our division 3 panel had their third game in this league. On this occasion Granard provided the opposition and Pairc na Gael was the venue. It was the Granard men with the assistance of the breeze in the opening half were superior, opening up a lead. By half time the score was Dromard 0-2 Granard 2-10. While Dromard did compete well scores were at a premium. The youthful Granard team continued to set the pace in the second half but Dromard never gave up trying and at the full time whistle had pulled back the score to 3-16 to 1-8. Team and scorers.
