Spa 1-12 Castleisland Desmonds 5-16
A disappointing result for our seniors on Sunday as they were outplayed by a strong Desmonds side. Despite trailing by 1-7 to 0-4 early in the game they came back well to put just a point between the sides by half time 1-8 to 1-9. Four second half goals by Desmonds however finished our championship hopes for 2017.
