Beaufort sponsored by Killarney Credit Union hosted Cordal/Scartaglin on Easter Monday in the East Region League.
The visitors began well winning the throw in and scored a goal. Jason Coffey-Hallissey had a point for Beaufort before Cordal/Scartaglin had 4 points without reply. Sean Coffey made a fine save in the home goal but the rebound led to a point and soon afterwards another goal. Beaufort were given a life-line when a mistake by the keeper saw full-forward Keith Floyd score a goal. This was cancelled out soon afterwards when another fine save by Sean Coffey but Cordal/Scartaglin were first to react and the ball was finished to the net. They followed up with 5 points. Beaufort had the last score of the game with a goal from their full-forward again Keith Floyd who was at the end of a good run from Ciaran O’Sullivan. Half-time score: Beaufort 2-1 Cordal/Scartaglin 3-10.
Beaufort had the first 3 points of the 2nd half with 2 frees from Darragh Dennehy and a point from mid-fielder Ciaran O’Sullivan. A well worked point by Beaufort was started and finished by the hard working William Joy. Cordal/Scartaglin had their first point of the 2nd half. Jason Coffey-Hallissey had a point as did William Joy. Cordal/Scartaglin had 2 goals and a point while goals from Ian McGillicuddy and a late goal from mid-fielder Ciaran O’Sullivan for the homeside left the final score Beaufort 4-7 Cordal/Scartaglin 5-14.
