Division 1

Our Division 1 side travelled to Rosemount last Saturday to take on the home side in the sixth round of the league. The Downs performed well throughout, unfortunately the hosts managed toget through for three first half goals, which made the task at hand more difficult. The Downs began to close the gap through the early parts of the second half and managed to claw level. However, a disastrous last ten minutes seen Rosemount score another two goals to run out winners. Full Time: 5-10 to 1-13.

Division 3

Our Division 3 side stayed on course in this year’s campaign with a competitive win over Tyrrellspass in great conditions last Sunday. The Downs had a poor start conceding two early goals to put them on the back step, but battled back to trail be just two at the break. The second half was a tight affair with both sidesunable to pull away. The game seemed to be just beyond The Downs as the game went into injury time, but a longball into the square by Dean Clarke was met by two attempts from the hand of PJ Maguireto find the back of the net, ensuring our lads got the points in dramatic fashion. Full time 1-15 to 2-11.
