Credit Union SFL Division 3 Round 1
Keel 0-07 St Pats 0-07
St Pats kicked off their County League campaign last Sunday afternoon with a draw away to Keel in a match played under windy and torrential shower conditions.
Despite the low scores and inclement weather, this game was open, fast and produced some great scores from both sides even when the football wasn’t free-flowing and there were lots of turnovers on both sides.
St Pats started the match well and were 2 points up after 3 minutes. It took Keel 2 more minutes before they got on the score sheet through a converted free. There were great defending by our backs often causing the ball to be turned over but in momemts, we gave Keel too much space which was them come into the half as the scores were 4 apiece at the end of the first half.
Keel nudged ahead a minute into the second half and we drew level 4 minutes later and then went a point ahead mid-way into the half. The home team replied with 2 straight points of their own as we battled hard and were rewarded with a free which was converted a minute to the end of the match as both sides finished with 7 points.
