club Notes

November 8, 2018


Whitecross made their second visit to Keeley Park this year when they played their “home” fixture under flood lights last Friday night. The fist half was a very even affair with good spells of play from both sides, and the half time score reading six points each. Silverbridge started the second half well and for the first time in the match there was four points between the sides. After both sides exchanged points a whitecross goal followed by a point left the side’s level. Just when a draw seemed the most likely result, two mistakes from the home side resulted in a goal and a point for whitecoss too leave them winners on a score line of 2-11 – 1-10
