Shamrocks 6-15, Cill na Martra 4-5
Shamrocks qualified for the semi final of the Football League following this comprehensive victory this afternoon.Shamrocks dominated from start to finish, putting on our best performance of the season.
The first half was close in scoring terms – 0-6 to 1-3 at half-time – but we really should have had a commanding lead at that stage.
The lads knew themselves at half-time that more composure on the ball and improved passing accuracy would eventually pay dividends.
We hit our opponents for 5 goals in the first 10 minutes of the second half to effectively kill the game.
All players got plenty of playing time and it must be commented that the substitutes introduced did not in any way weaken the team.
We now have the rest of July off and this is welcome as this group of players have put in some effort between Hurling and Football over that last month or so.
Out thanks for the Cill na Martra club for making the long trip and we wish them well for the remainder of the season.
