Credit Union County League Division 5B
Asdee 0-11 Waterville 1-14
Asdee GAA played host to Division 5 table-toppers Waterville who made their first appearance in Jack Walsh Park on Saturday evening last and after a well contested encounter it was the visitors who came away with the County League points.
Certainly, Asdee gave as good as they got, especially in the second half where they more than owned that final 30mts. However it was the slow start that cost them the game,poor passing, giving away turn overs and at the break looked in real trouble down 9pts to 2pts.
It looked an uphill battle starting off the second half Eoin Kennedy departed the scene through injury but Asdee dug deep and were to cause plenty problems for a fancied South Kerry side shrewd positional switches were to work immediately as the home side went about their business in great style winning a lot of the midfield exchanges.
Waterville were now on the back-foot and it took a goal with under 5mts remaining to help them get over the line. Asdee have improved their game considerably and are well positioned to reach the next phase of the competition.
