Division 1

In our final league game of the 2019 campaign, we travelled to take on neighbors St. Loman’s. The Downs got off to a sluggish start and trailed 1-02 to 0-02 after ten minutes of play. But following the slow start the lads began to find some rythem and Luke Loughlin added a number of well taken score before some great ball movement found Ian Martin who added to his goal count for the campaign. The Downs led 1-04 to 1-02. The second half was similar to the first with St. Loman’s getting the better start. But the result was sealed mid-way through the half when Kevin O’ Sullivan had a brilliant solo attempt find the net and the lads looked comfortable until the final whistle. Full time 2-08 to 1-07
