Novice Championship Rd 1 Result –
Full time Asdee 1-14 Sneem/Derrynane 0-07.
Half time Asdee 1-07 Sneem/Derrynane 0-02.
Played at Strand Road pitch Asdee really turned on the style to completely overrun a fancied Sneem/Derrynane side. This was always going to be a tricky assignment as previous meeting between the sides were always close affairs.
However on this occasion Asdee got off to the perfect start and despite being off target on several occasions they led at the break 1-6 to 0-1. The goal coming in the 15th minute from full forward Eoin Tydings.
On resumption Asdee continued to impress playing some lovely passages of fast open football and in fairness even though the South Kerry side were always playing catch up football they never gave up the chase.
Of course their task was made much more difficult when they went a man down in the 16th minute of the opening half and had to line out without their star forward Ian Galvan.
