MAIN MAN

Some out­stand­ing in­di­vid­ual per­for­mances on both sides, young Conor O’Cal­laghan a colos­sus in the Drom­tar­iffe ranks. For Beau­fort, Fer­gal Hal­lis­sey showed re­peat­edly for the ball, apart from shoot­ing 0-6, the No. 12 con­trib­uted hand­somely all through 80 fas­ci­nat­ing min­utes.

KEY MO­MENT

Hit­ting a sticky patch prior to the in­ter­val, not for the first time in the cam­paign, Beau­fort checked the im­pe­tus of their op­po­nents, chan­nelling their en­ergy through hard work and high tempo foot­ball, 1-4 without re­ply in 10 min­utes play mid­way through the sec­ond half erased a six point deficit.

TALK­ING POINT

From a marvel­lous en­counter adorned with ex­cel­lent scor­ing and surperb in­di­vid­ual per­for­mances, this con­test will re­main in the mem­ory bank for some time. Con­trast­ing routes, Beau­fort con­firmed as Kerry cham­pi­ons last May, Drom­tar­iffe are a dual club, 16 out of their 17 Ju­nior A foot­ball and hurl­ing JAFC/JAHC games op­er­ated from late June.

WHAT’S NEXT?

A de­served short break for Beau­fort ahead of pre­par­ing for an All Ire­land JAFC semi-fi­nal with Le­in­ster cham­pi­ons Dun­dalk Young Ire­lands (Louth) or St Brigids (Of­faly) as op­po­nents.
