Due to the main pitch being unplayable at Keeley Park , the match was played in Silverbridge’s second field .
A Cold dismal day where conditions were slippy .
The game was only seconds old when we registered a point thanks to Callum Kieran.

Colin O’Connor got our second score minutes before a super strike for goal from Oisín O’Neill was saved by the Bridge goalie .
Points from Micéal McCabe , Cormac Donnelly and Oisín O’Neill put us in front for the first time before a free for Silverbridge which Ronan Reel converted to leave the game all square once more with ten minutes to go until the break .
A Rían O’Neill point from a free edged us in front once more and as the game entered the final minutes of the first half , both sides scored two points each , ours thanks to corner forward Colin O’Connor , the Bridge two scores coming from frees and just before the whistle went to signal half time , Colin scored another point to increase our lead to two at half time .
Silverbridge started the second half the brightest , scoring two points in the first few minutes to level matters , 9 a piece .
Rían O’Neill and Micéal McCabe (f) got a point each before the score of the match came in the eight minute when a superb strike from the boot of Oisín O’Neill sailed over the bar to increase our lead to three .
Substitute , Cían McConville got his name on the scoresheet when he scored a point midway through the second half , a point from Micéal McCabe (f) strengthened our lead. Silverbridge converted two frees to narrow the gap and leave three between the sides with ten minutes to go until full time .
