Certainly this was the complete team performance with each member displaying some wonderful football skills that belied their age and none more so than Owen O Connor who contributed 3-3 of his side total and was a thorn in the Cromane defence throughout. The home team were quick out of blocks and were 1-4 up before Cromane registered their only score of the half after 13mts play. The goal coming from Jack Collins after just 2mts. The combination sides keeper Neill Carmody saved well leaving the half time score; Asdee/Bally 1-5 Cromane 0-1.
