In the earlier game the reserve team had another excellent win when they ran out comfortable winners on a scoreline of Naomh Muire 3-17 Milford 3-05. With both Match day keeper Conor Deveney and Shane Greene not available, club referee Robbie O Donnell stepped into goals for the reserve team this evening.
