Championship V St. Marys
Our Championship dreams are still alive after a hard earned one point 1-6 to 1-5 win over St.Marys on Saturday evening. Qualification now depends on the result between Mohill and St. Marys with many different possibilities.
It was a poor match but the result was all important with Annaduff playing much better in the second half and showing great fighting spirit to come back and win after Carrick went three points ahead after 40 minutes.
David Duignan’s 45th minute Goal
Duignans goal was crucial after 45 minutes. The sides were level at 0-3 each at the break with the Annaduff first half points coming from Alan Cox, Joe Cox and Cathal Cox. In the first half Kevin Ludlow saved a certain goal when he tipped over a goal bound shot from Nicholas McWeeney.
