Adare and Newcastle West keep up 100% records-Limerick SFC round up

Last years county finalists Newcastle West and champions Adare have continued where they left off with both on four points after the opening two games of the Limerick Senior Football Championship.

With the weather once more causing chaos with fixtures, both Friday night games were postponed. On Sunday evening Ballysteen and Drom Broadford picked up maiden wins of the campaign.

Adare overcame Ballylanders on Saturday evening with a 2-12 to 0-15 victory over Ballylanders. The champions had goals from Hugh Bouke and Charlie McCarthy.

Elsewhere in group 1, Drom Broadford picked up their first win of the campaign with 0-10 to 0-6 victory against Na Piarasaigh. They move up to second in the table after that win with Monaleen yet to play a game.

Standings in Group 1 of the Limerick SFC.

In Group 2, Newcastle held off the challange of Fr Caseys in Athea to run out 2-8 to 0-9 winners. The sides were level at the break before Thomas Quilligan and AJ O’Connor goaled for NCW in the second half.

On the same evening Ballysteen were well deserving of a 2-12 to 0-5 win over Oola in Clarina. The O’Meara brothers Willie and Matt found the net either side of the half against an Oola side who failed to score from play during the game.

Standings in Group 2 of the Limerick SFC.

This Thursday Monaleen take on Na Piarsaigh in a rematch of their first round game which was postponed to due to severe weather conditions. Monaleen then face St Senans next Sunday. St Kierans take on St Patrick’s the same night.

The Championship will then take a 14-week hiatus to allow for the opening rounds of the Limerick SHC and the Munster Championships.
