Drom Broadford survive as St Senans relegated to Intermediate

Two years after earning promotion to the Senior Ranks, St Senans have once again been relegated to the Intermediate Football Championship.

Drom Broadford’s experience paid dividends as they won the relegation play off 2-10 to 1-9 in Newcastle West on Saturday afternoon.

Neither side picked up a point in the group stages this summer.

St Senans started the brighter and had the games opening goal through Adam Kearns to lead 1-7 to 0-2 after 25 minutes.

Drom would get the final two scores of the half to reduce the deficit to 1-7 to 0-4.

That brace of scores would prove vital as Senans failed to regain their first-half rhythm.

Drom would score 1-7 on the trot to pull ahead 1-9 to 1-7 with ten minutes remaining.

Senans would eventually break their scoring duck but it would prove too little too late as Cillian Fahy’s goal sealed their fate
