Last Saturday night we played our 3rd match in the county league at home v Pallasgreen. It was a keenly contested match with Pallasgreen getting early scores to get a foothold in the game. We battled back and the second half saw us claw our way back and eventually take the lead. Pallasgreen fought back and the game was a draw. Either team could have won it in the end but in ended in a draw 0.24 to 2.18. Next saturday night we are away v Effin at 7.30pm.
