MINORS : Crotta O’Neills was the opposition in the final group game of the N.K. League played in Dromakee last Sunday morning. We got off to a blistering start with a goal within seconds of the throw-in from the stick of Michael Slattery.

Further points from Cillian Spillane, Jack Sheehan and Adam Maunsell pushed us even further in front Crotta came more into the game midway through the half and they sent over a flurry of points leaving us trailing by 1 point going into the break with the half-score at 1-06 to 0-10.

The lead changed hands a number of times in the opening 15 minutes of the 2nd half with a mix-up in defence ending with the sliotar in the odorney net leaving Crotta leading once again. Abbeydorney got on top again with some great scores including a goal from Ruairí Donovan.  With the defence now hinged and the forwards finding their range, we pushed on from there ensuring we secured our place in the final this weekend with a 2-19 to 1-15 victory.
