We were beaten in our first game of the Senior League on Sunday by Salthill-Knocknacarra on the score of 0-13 to 0-7. We scored our first point from Michael Melia after a minute but we had to wait twenty eight minutes more before Frankie Burke had our second score to leave us 0-2 to 0-5   behind at the break  We were very rusty in the opening half and we will have improve our scoring rate if we are going to have a good run in League and the forth coming Championship against Killererin in a few weeks time, After the break we upped our performance when we went back to our basic game and cut the lead to one point but Salthill pulled away again to run out winners.  Anthony Pender, Mathias Coleman and Brendan Dooley scored a point each in the second half with out top scorer Frankie Burke adding a further two. Our best players were Anthony Pender, Fergal O’Doherty, Wesley Fallon, Brendan Dooley and Mathias Coleman.  The team was: Padraic Mannion, Shane Collier, Adrian Fitzpatrick, Martin O’Neill, Brian Qualter, Anthony Pender (0-1), Paul Creaven, Wesley Fallon, Niall Coleman, Michael Melia (0-1), Mathias Coleman (0-1), Brendan Dooley (0-1), Morgan Duggan, Michael Newell, and Frankie Burke( 3).
