Senior County League:

Our seniors- sponsored by Larkin’s Bar and Restaurant and Kelly’s Londis Top Shop, were very unlucky at the weekend-beaten by the narrowest of margins by Dingle in Round 5 of The County League-Division 1.

The home side played with wind advantage in the opening half but it was the visitors who got off to the better start.

Dingle opened the scoring but a Jack McCarthy pointed free had the sides level after 5 minutes. Four un- answered points including the efforts of Barry O’ Sullivan and Conor Geaney saw Dingle lead 0-5 to 0-1 after 15 minutes.

However the second quarter saw the home side reply with points from Jack McCarthy and Jeremiah Hayes and a Jerome Flynn goal gave them a lead of 1-05 to 0-6 at the break.

Two quick fire points by Dingle on resumption saw the sides level. A point from Gavin Horan saw MC resume the lead in the 35th minute but that was to be their last score for the next 20 minutes.

In that time, Dingle scored 6 un answered pints giving them a comfortable lead and they looked like certain winners.

However,  in the last 5 minutes, MC rallied. A cracker of a goal by Donal Dennehy and a Donal Kelliher point saw the bare minimum between the two sides as the game headed into injury time.

However MC couldn’t get that all important score and so Dingle went west with 2 very valuable points.

MC face An Ghaeltacht in 2 weeks time.

Final Score: Dingle 0-14, Milltown Castlemaine 2-07.
