Aghaderg 1-7 Kilclief 1-14

A committed Aghaderg Senior Football team pushed a strong Kilclief side all the way in this competitive and entertaining encounter.

Three early points gave Kilclief the advantage before “the goal that never was” denied a spirited Aghaderg team a merited equaliser as the referee and umpires sought to differ as to whether the ball had crossed the line. However, the Reds responded in admirable fashion with a magnificent move that was finished superbly by Christopher McAvoy into the far corner of the net. Further points from Conor McGivern and Chris McAvoy edged Aghaderg ahead but the visitors finished the half strongly and went in at half time with a 0-8 to 1-2 advantage.

The trusty boot of Chris McAvoy maintained the status quo until six minutes from the end when Kilclief produced a great move of their own to slam in the killer goal that saw them eventually ease to a deserved victory.

Chris McAvoy 1-5, Conor McGivern 0-1, Owen McGreevey 0-1
