Westport 0-7  Crossmolina 0-4

On a beautiful day for football, Westport & Crossmolina served up a low-scoring but an exciting game of football, with Westport winning out on a score line of 0-7 to 0-4.  It was a day when both defences were on top and scores were hard to come by.

Westport got off to the better start and were 2 points up from the boot of Cillian Kilkelly.  Crossmolina responded with 2 points, followed by Alan Kennedy and Sean O’Donnell kicking a point each, to go in at half time up 0-4 to  0-2 pts.  The second half saw Westport take the game to Crossmolina, with some surging runs from Paul Lambert in particular, and points from Alan Kennedy (2pts) and Brian O’Malley (1pt), saw Westport well on top.

Crossmolina then got 2 unanswered points, to leave just 3 pts between the teams and almost on the stroke of full time, Crossmolina were awarded a penalty, but a great save from Patrick O’Malley saw Westport claim a deserved win.
