Ardcroney will be disappointed to come away from Portumna without at least a draw after scoring on 15 minutes when Andy Loughnane finished well from a through ball to him from midfield. Portumna pressed hard throughout the game but just couldn’t finish with the keeper positioning himself well throughout the game and Dave Slattery marshalling his team well from the defence to absorb what ever Portumna could throw at them. Persistence paid off with less than 5 minutes to go when Rory Finnegan beat a defender on the right and drilled the ball across the 6 yard for Ciaran Hough to finish. Two minutes from full time Dave Fogarty took the ball into the box and pressed his way passed two defenders and drove the ball passed the keeper while being tackled well at the time. Portumna saw out the game and both teams came off the pitch after giving their all. Portumna 2 Ardcroney1.
