Blackhill Emeralds Club Notes:
Intermediate Football Championship sponsored by McElvaney’s Waste & Recycling:
Rd1 Blackhill 1-09 Doohamlet 3-14
Blackhill: Shane Farrell, Ryan Courtney (C), Donál Courtney, Tomás Courtney, Killian Carragher, Ryan Craig, James Daly, Ciarán Courtney, Anthony Courtney, Tommy Geehan, Andrew Burns, Jason Finnegan, Gerard McArdle, Hugh Byrne & Stephen Courtney. Subs Used: Paul Finnegan for S Courtney, Phillip Donnelly for A Burns HT, Jonathan Irwin for J Finnegan 2nd half.
After a fairly entertaining and even contest for most of the first half, a 2-4 to 0-1 burst in the last six minutes of the first half from the hosts aided by some critical errors on our behalf effectively ended the contest. The team tried hard to salvage the situation in the second half but frustratingly we just couldn’t get the necessary momentum. Next up is a home tie with Tyholland this Sunday at 5pm.
