Reserve Football: 
Our B’s had their first outing of the year in Pairc Grattan last Saturday eve against Kileevan. The game got off to a blistering start with both teams going toe to toe until late in first half when Kileevan scored a goal which left us trailing at the break by 1-07 to 7 points. The lads however produced an excellent second half performance and outscored Kileevan 1-08 to 1-02. The Game tipped as a result of some excellent second half defending from team Captain Francis McArdle, Joe Butler and Co. David McGahon and Niall Butler were dominant in midfield which in turn set up a good platform for Colm Meegan, Eugene McArdle, Donal Meegan & Jarlath McGeeney to do damage, the latter (McGeeney) finishing with 1-02 to his tally. The Game concluded with the score line: Inniskeen 1-15 Kileevan 2-09. Our next outing is away to the “auld enemy” Donaghmoyne in April. Please come and support the lads
