Credit Union County League Division 5 B, Asdee 1-7 Rathmore 0-5
Asdee senior footballers made the long journey to Rathmore on Sunday last to take on a highly fancied local side and after a highly entertaining encounter it was the visitors that collected the league points on offer and credit to a tight marking Asdee rear-guard who dealt with the wily home attack, holding them scoreless during an exciting second half.
The opening half saw play swing from end to end with little separating the sides except that the visitors were able to pick off their scores a little better when presented. Asdee were awarded a penalty in the 15th minute converted in style by Eoin Tydings but the same player faced a similar situation just on the break but the Rathmore keeper brought off a splendid save and at half time it was Asdee 1-5 to 0-5.
On the restart scorers were hard to come by and with scores at a premium it was Asdee who hung on for a hard-earned victory.
