Goals sink The Harps in league clash with Camross
The Harps lost out to Camross in the fourth round of the league, as goals proved to be the difference between the teams. Played on a fine sunny evening, The Harps were reliant on the skills of John Brophy to keep them in touch. The opening half saw the two teams evenly matched, but Camross buried two chances to the back of the net while John Brophy was slotting frees and some good scores from play to keep The Harps in contention. At half time the home side were ahead on a score line of 2-06 to 0-06.
The second half continued in a similar fashion as Camross began to stretch the lead. Pat Walsh and Eoin Clancy were to weigh in with points from play to assist Brophy, but Camross went on to score a further two goals to finish the game as a contest. John Brophy continued on to showcase his skills and ended the game with a fine personal tally of 0-12 (0-06 frees). This was a reality check for The Harps, but there is plenty of room for improvement and with good effort in training the results will come. The final score line was The Harps 0-15 v 4-14 Camross.
