Our senior team held off a late surge by Fethard to win on a scoreline 1-11 to 1-6. Alan Griffith got the home side off to a good start with a brace of points, Aidan Murphy pointed and another by Griffith meant we went in to break all square at -04 each. In the second half, Terry Gainfort and Derek Walsh both converted free’s and 45’s with ease and when Colin Redmond pointed, Shels looked home and dry. However Fethard were rewarded for their hard work by a goal in the 23rd minute to leave just 2 points between the sides.The on form Derek Walsh, collected a fine pass and went all the way where he put the ball in the back of the net to give Shels some breathing space, a further insurance point from Walsh meant the final score was 1-11 to 1-6, to Shels. Scorers: Derek Walsh 1-3 1F, Alan Griffith 0-3, Terry Gainfort 0-3 2F, Aidan Murphy 0-1 and Colin Redmond 0-1. Liam Donnelly and Brian Doyle were also to the fore. A good team performance.
