Despite getting off to a good start, taking the first two points of the match, the Broadford lead was short-lived as the ‘Bridge proved their dominance with a stream of points and two goals with Broadford able to add just another seven points for their spirited efforts.
The final score of 0-09 to 2-20 did not reflect the hard work put in by the Broadford team.
David Hickey, Brian Cosgrove and Willie Wixted kept the ball moving in Broaford’s favour with some nifty out manoeuvring of the ‘Bridge’s midfield and half-back lines on numerous occasions. The team also created two good goal scoring opportunities from play but could not find the back of the net for a finish. A late free in the second-half from the 20-metre and taken by Brian Cosgrove was the final proof, if any were needed, that luck was not on Broadford’s side as the ball hit the cross-bar of Bridge’s heavily defended goal and was knocked back in to play denying Broadford the points they were looking for.
Bad luck but a great effort and well done to Sixmilebridge.
