All County League Div 4
Southern Gaels 2-8  St. Oliver Plunkett's 2-3
This game was played in very difficult conditions in Pairc Chiaráin Athlone last Saturday. In a low scoring first half Gaels seemed to have the upper hand with some well taken points but the concession of a goal following a defensive mix up saw the Mullingar side lead by 1-2 to 0-4 at half-time. Gaels played with greater urgrency in the second-half and some great determination and skill saw them slot over a number of points and seal victory with goals from Colin Larkin and Frank Kelly. Best on the day were Duncan, Cronin M.J. Kelly and O'Keeffe.
Team: Dermot Whelan, Killian Coyle, Kieran Duncan,Patrick Flynn, Sean Carey, Eoghan Cronin, Trevor Farrell, M. J. Kelly (0-1), John Stapleton (0-3), David Johnson, Tony O'Keeffe (0-3), Ronan Farrell, Colin Larkin (1-0), Frank Kelly (1-1) and Michael O'Connell. Sub: Fionn Dowd
