Our men’s Senior A team had a Great Win in Piltown on Friday night where they overcame Na Fianna. A fine crowd turned out in ideal conditions to cheer on the lads in blue in search of the second win of the campaign.
Within 10 minutes Na Fianna had raced into an early lead 0-1 to 0-8 lead and by 20 min it was 0-3 to 0-8 as Cilles slowly gained a foothold bringing it to 0-6 to 0-8 at half time. The second half was much better as Cilles upped the effort, drawing level on 40 minutes at 0-9 apiece. On 49 minute the Bomber was on the end of a move leading to the only goal of the match, the score now 1-11 to 0-10. A strong finish saw Cilles win 1-14 to 0-10 for Na Fianna.
The match was preceded by a minutes silence for local Max Mason who tragically died earlier in the week.
