Longford stay unbeaten
Longford 2-16 Warwickshere 2-11: Allianz HL Div 3B
Longford maintained their unbeaten record with a hard-fought victory at Glennon Brothers Pearse Park.
Despite building a healthy five-point cushion at half-time, the midlanders almost let victory slip from their grasp in the closing exchanges after Warwickshire registered a fortuitous goal with ten minutes remaining.
Ray Gavin's outfit, however, regained their composure after a cracking goal from their full-forward John Mulhern.
The locals got off to a blistering start thanks to top marksman Eoin Donnellan, who registered an impressive 1-10 in total.
Warwickshire's John Reddan and Conor Robbins kept their hopes alive with fine individual performances but they played second fiddle for long periods of this entertaining encounter.
