Playing with the wind in the first half NE where the dominant team scoring 1.07 and restricting Rasharkin to a single score. Well done to Joe Maskey for his debut goal.
The 2nd half was a played into the breeze but NE got a couple of scores, including an excellent goal from Brendan Cormican. A few changes made and while players adjusted to new positions Rasharkin managed to tag on a couple of crucial scores, but the seniors managed to withstand the pressure and record a first win.
