Division 1

The lads had a good week in the league. First on Tuesday night they defeated our neighbours Coralstown/Kinnegad by the narrowest of margins 1-10 to 0-12, the vital goal came via dean Egerton in the first half and four second half points from Luke Loughlin ensured we gained two vital league points. On Friday we travelled to Tyrrellspass to face the home side. We had the worst start imaginable and found ourselves two goals down inside the first five minutes. However, the lads regained their composure through the reminder of the half and two goals from Conor Murray and Ian Martin ensured we held the lead at the break. The Downs kicked on after the restart through a number of vital Dean Egerton points and Ian Martin got his second goal in the closing stages to give The Downs a 3-12 to 3-06 win.


Division 2

The Downs were out in this division on Saturday evening when we hosted Tubberclair. The lads played brilliantly well with Jack Carroll in fine form up front, unfortunately we passed up a number of goal opportunities and paid the price late on when the visitors struck for  second goal to take the win 2-11 to 0-14.


Division 5 

The division 5 lads kept their hopes of promotion well on track last Sunday morning when they travelled to Castletown to take on CFCW. Liam Faulkner and Niall Gavin got the vital goals in the first half to give us a half time lead of 2-07 to 1-04. The lads remained in control and although the home side managed to rally in the second half we had too much of an advantage and ran out 2-14 to 2-10 winner. Team: J Walsh, K Carroll, C Gavin, B Flynn, L Faulkner, O Murphy, M Cunningham, E Burke, C Carty, D Monaghan, D Coughlan, M Rowan, J Carroll, N Gavin, S Loughlin.
