Seneschalstown 2-19 Wolfe Tones 1-12 

Father Tully Park hosted the meeting of Seneschalstown and Wolfe Tones in the 10th round of the B League Division 1 on Wednesday evening.

It was slippery under foot with the heavy shower just before the game which resulted in the ball moving quickly when it hit the ground.

The team got off to a good start with early points from Sean Commons and Johnathon Gilsenan.

The crucial score of the first half was a goal from Johnathon Gilsenan following good link up play.

Following a run from Sean Commons were the ball came off a defender, Stephen Finnegan expertly dispatched the resulting forty five. 

One of the sweetest scores of the match came from a ball won by Edward Meade that was laid off to Brendan Lynch who got passed two Wolfe Tones defenders and slotted over the bar from the right hand side of the pitch.

David Gordon pulled off a great one on one save to prevent a goal which would have brought Wolfe Tones back into the game.

The defence applied pressure on the Wolfe Tones attacks to limit the damage in the first half.
