Summerhill second team travelled to Paddy O’Brien Park on Sunday morning to take on Seneschalstown in the Teach Na Teamhrach JFC Group ‘C’, game. Both teams having won their opening round games played out an entertaining game in perfect conditions in front of a good crowd.
The Hill raced into a 1-2 to no score lead, the goal coming from Cathal Brien. Loosing Paddy McGrath to a nasty injury let Seneschalstown back in and from there to half time the Furze side led the way, but on the whistle Paul Larkin fisted to the net to leave the score at half time 2-6 to Summerhill 1-8 Seneschalstown. Three early points in the second half pushed the Hill into a four point lead and with some resolute defending from the men in blue kept the Yellow Furze men at bay for the rest of the game. Summerhill have four points going into the break.
