Another hard luck story for the for our U-21 footballers in Tuam Stadium on Saturday as we were beaten by Killererin in the North semi-final .  Killererin played into the town goal with the aid of the breeze in the first half and got the perfect start a serious of one twos ended with Shane Hughes firing to the net after a good move.   Mathias Coleman replied with a good point from play for us.  Killererin then scored another point before Frankie Burke slotted over two fine points from play.  The half time score was Annaghdown 0-03 Killererin 1-3.

It was a very tense affair with conditions getting worse in the second half Wesley Fallon reduced the deficit to two points with a good effort from play and after 15 minutes.  Frankie Burke added his third from play to leave a single point between the teams but that was as close as we got.  With time running out Killererin went two in front when Shane Hughes fired over their only score of the second half from a free.  It was desperation stuff now for Annaghdown but Ger Rafftrey played a brilliant ball over the Killererin defence to give Frankie Burke a chance to grab and a goal which was on for him.  Unfortunatly for us he was bundled to the ground but a penalty  kick was awarded.  The game was in injury time and Ger Rafftrey stood up to take the shot but the Killererin goalie blocked and then dived on it as it rebound of him to win the game for Killererin on the score line of 1-4 to 0-5.

Team was: Declan Walsh, Noel Burke, Shane Collier, John King, Ian O’Dowd, Fergal Doherty, Thomas Burke, Fergal Coleman, Wesley Fallon (0.1), Joseph Farragher, Mathias Coleman (0.1), Ger Rafftrey, Niall Farragher, Frankie Burke (0.3) and Aidan Burke.
