At Caherlistrane on Thursday evening a little bit of history was made as Annaghdown and the local team played a championship game under lights, it was the preliminary round of the North GPC 2008 Under-21 football championship with the visitors going forward to first round on the score of 3-10 to 2-9 after extra time. It was a very cold evening and the good attendance saw a game that Caherlistrane lead by 2-8 to 0-7 as we entered into the final minutes of the match but Annaghdown shot 2-1 before Denis Ryder blew the full time whistle and extra time was next, Caherlistrane began the scoring with a point on six minutes but Mathias Coleman levelled matter a minute later, and points from Niall Farragher, Ger Rafftery, Wesley Fallon and Aidan Burke gave the visitors a three point lead as the clock ticked in to injury time but a goal Caherlistrane goaled to level matters at the break Annaghdown 0-5 Caherlistrane 1-2.  The home team did all the scoring after the break and lead by double scores with only four minutes to play having scored 1-6 to Annaghdown 0-2 , Brian O’Dowd and Rafftery scoring the winners points, and followed the ‘goal rush’ from Brian O’Dowd and Aidan Burke with Mathias Coleman adding the levelling point.  In the first half of extra time Annaghdown scored twice a goal from Niall Farragher and a point from Wesley Fallon to give us a lead of 3-9 to 2-8 at the break, in the second period both teams scored a point each with Fergal Doherty scoring for the winners.  Our team was Declan Walsh, Noel Burke, Shane Collier, Pa Burke, Ian O’Dowd, Fergal Doherty, John King, Martin Scully, Wesley Fallon, Enda Mullarkey, Mattias Coleman, Ger Rafftery, Brian O’Dowd, Niall Farragher and Aidan Burke
