Páirc Ui Dhochartaigh

Carn seniors continued on their winning ways with a 10 point victory over Aodh Ruadh. Again this victory was orchestrated on the back of a very good team performance and fine individual displays from Conor Doherty and Michael Nelson in the back line, Oliver McConologue and Cathal O'Kane at midfield and Garvan McGrenra, Ritchie Cunningham, Ryan Kelly and Fergal Matthews in the forward line.

Carn goalkeeper Gerard Crossan scored the first point of the game from a 45 metre free. Aodh Ruadh then scored two points and in the eighth minute Garvan McGrenra scored Carn's second point. Again Ballyshannon hit a brace of points before Fergal Matthews and Ryan Kelly scored one each for Carn. The Ernesiders added two further scores before Ryan Kelly and Garvan McGrenra levelled the score ahead of the half time whistle.

In the second half, Carn had the advantage of a stiff breeze and within two minutes McGrenra scored a goal. Cathal O'Kane got a second goal in the 42nd minute from a penalty. Both McGrenra and Dermot McGonagle scored a point each before Aodh Ruadh registered their seventh point. Another point from a Gerard Crossan free and a point from Oliver McConologue followed before Aodh Ruadh scored their last point of the second half. Points from Ritchie Cunningham and Paddy Nelson finishing the scoring for the homesters.
