  Our Seniors were beaten for the 3rd time in 7 days on Saturday last, 2 of the defeats coming at the hands of St. Brigid`s. The performance on Saturday, in the O`Rourke Cup, was a huge improvement on Tuesdays in the Leo Kenny Connaught.
  The first half was even enough with points being traded however Brigid`s managed to open up a 4 or 5 point advantage which Elphin pegged back before half time to leave the score 0-05 to 0-07 at the break.
  The second half started in much the same fashion with Brigid`s once again opening up a 4 point lead. The game hinged on 2 goal decisions. Frankie Cregg had his effort disallowed for square ball with about 10 minutes remaining. Had this score been allowed the game would have been tied, but 5 minutes later Brigid`s scored a decisive goal, fisted in from a free to put them well ahead. Elphin stuck to the task but couldn`t claw back the deficit.
