DENNY DIVISION 2B
Cedar Galaxy 2 Na Fianna 1
Cedar Galaxy brought themselves right back into the frame in this division after a crucial win over Listowel side Na Fianna their first defeat in six months. Things were looking rosy early on for Na Fianna when they went ahead after just two minutes with a Lee Dicken goal after capitalising on a defensive error by Cedar.
Cedar got level half way through the half. A quick break with Johnny Murphy and Adam Waterworth combining to whip a low cross for Sam Dobbins to provide a well taken finish. Again the same three combined after some good wing play from Danny Wrenn and Dobbins again managed to somehow scramble the ball over the line as the Killarney side were now well on top playing their tidy passing game, half time 2-1.
The second half was equally competitive with Galaxy keeper Dave McCarthy being reliable when called upon on several occasions as the home team were well capable of closing out the game.
