Our under 21’s took on Killoe in our second group game of the championship on Sunday last.  Conditions were dry but a strong breeze blew toward the church end which favoured Killoe in the opening half.  We got the opening score of the game through a Declan Mimnagh free.  The visitors drew level before a Bernard Sheridan free edged us in front again.  Our opponents registered an unanswered 1-03 but we closed the first half scoring with a Declan Mimnagh point from play.  Half time score was Dromard 0-03 Killoe 1-04.  We got the opening 2 points of the second half to narrow the margin.  Killoe then had a good phase of possession that yielded 3 points to open up a 5 point lead.  Our lads redoubled their efforts to finish strongly scoring the last 4 points of the game.  The final score was Dromard 0-09 Killoe 1-07.  Team and scorers;  Martin McGee, Ronan Smith, Keith Masterson, Conor Kiernan, Robert Cooke, Peter Reynolds, Michael Reynolds, Bernard Sheridan (0-03) 2 frees, Kieran McStay, Mícheál Reilly, Thomas Kelly (0-01), Gary Maguire (0-01) 1 free, Sean McNerney, Peter Mimnagh, Declan Mimnagh (0-04) 2 frees.  Sub used David Cosgrove.  We advanced to the semi final by having a superior scoring difference in our group.  The semi final pits us against Fr. Manning Gaels which is due to be played on Sunday next. Best of luck to all involved in this. Sincere condolences to the Reilly families of Ballyduffy and San Francisco on the passing of John Reilly formerly of Ballyduffy and lately of San Fancisco.  Although emigrated for many years John always kept himself well informed of the fortunes of his native club down through the years.
