The Harps Junior footballers suffered their second defeat of the league campaign when losing out to Arles Kilcruise last Wednesday, May 13th. The Harps looked the stronger outfit in a promising opening half, with two excellent individual goals from Mark White and David Doheny sending The Harps into a 2-09 to 0-10 half time lead. James Campion was deadly accurate from both free’s and play to send over 0-07, while Mark White and Pat Walsh both sent over a point apiece from play.
The second half however saw a complete turnaround in this game as The Harps were held to a mere 0-02, while Arles Kilcruise shot 1-09 to turn the game on it’s head and give them a 5 point victory. The Harps fade out was probably down to Arles Kilcruise’ superior fitness levels and this is something The Harps will hope to improve upon in the coming weeks. Best on the day for The Harps were Steven Thomas, Pat Walsh, Mark White and James Campion.
The Harps are at home in the next round to Ballyroan on Saturday 23rd of May at 7.30pm in Durrow.
The Harps: 1.Kevin Donoghue; 2.Steven Thomas; 3.James Shortall; 4.John Dunne; 5.Shane Brophy; 6.Seamus Clancy; 7.Diarmuid Irwin; 8.Pat Walsh; 9.Shane Donoghue; 10.David Doheny; 11.Ger Alley; 12.Lee Campion; 13.Mark White; 14.James Campion; 15.Shane Keown.
