Burns hat-trick sinks Creggan

All County Football League Division One

St Paul’s 3-9 Creggan 1-13

Played in atrocious conditions it was great to see both teams ignoring the weather and playing away. Kickhams started the livelier and had 3 points on the board before St Pauls got their first score. With Conor and Kevin Small taking the bulk of the scores and Liam Mc Larnon and Paddy Lowe doing the spade work for St Pauls. At half time Kickhams went in leading 1.06 to 0.06 the goal coming from Kevin Small

The same trend continued in the second half where a great aerial battle between Oran Mc Cann and Liam Carland took place. As Kickhams went into a 5 point lead St Pauls and Billy Joe Burns came to life when he scored 2 goals and then finished it off with a scorcher of a penalty for his hat trick to put his side four clear. Kickhams did manage to get it back to a point with a late run of scores but St Pauls scored with the last kick of the game to win by 2.
