Senior Football League Round 2

Mullinavat 2-5  James Stephens 2-4

Report by John Dunphy P.R.O.

Mullinavat took on James Stephens at Mullinavat in the second round of the Senior football league. Played in atrocious weather conditions Mullinavat were hoping to follow up their victory in the previous round with another win. Mullinavat dominated the early possession but could not convert their dominance into scores. At the break James Stephens led by the slightest margin 1-2 to 0-4.

The poor conditions restricted scoring opportunities and both sides exchanged goals to leave the tie delicately poised going into the last few minutes. Mullinavat capitalised on an error in the James Stephens defence when Jamie Fennelly scored a decisive goal to give them a one point lead which they defended successfully to the end holding out for a win on the score line Mullinavat 2-5 James Stephens 2-4.

The team was Pat Mulhern, Brian Phelan, Seamus Farrell, Darren Kenneally, Ger Malone, Willie O Dwyer, Simon Aylward, Joe Fennelly, Thomas Aylward, Stephen Ryan, Ger Anthony, James Culleton, Stephen Duggan, Jamie Fennelly, Conor Duggan Subs: Tony Duggan, Conor Frisby, Ryan Bland, Pauric Gahan
