We came very close to pulling off success in Oola today on a very testing pitch which cut up badly from the start.
Our panel was small on a day when the long journey to Oola mightn’t have appealed to some.
The display by the men who travelled was brave to say the least when a real gutsy performance was put in against a physical Oola team who struggled with us at may stages in the match.
A goal by Neilo Keane put its ahead in the last 10 minutes after the game was held up by an altercation in which one of our players came in for heavy treatment by an over exuberant Oola player who has a lot to answer for.
He saw red as did a few others. This kind of incident put a damper on the game in which there were many positives.
Our next league match is at home to Adare next Saturday March 25th 2017.
