Ruan were always going to be a had team to beat and with the wind at their backs in the second-half they upped their game. Some excellent goal keeping from Harry Cooper kept them at bay at times. The Broadford full-back line came under immense pressure and bravely fought on despite some crushing scores. David Boland was everywhere (a real Captains performance). Hope was lifted in the second-half when the tireless Alan O' Brien got the ball on the edge of the square and hit an unstoppable shot into the back of the net. Subs like Denis Fahy and Conor O' Donnell fought to the bitter end but it was not to be the boys day today.
This bunch of lads have provided the club with some great days out this year.
Huge thanks must go to the Mentors for all their hard work this year - Noel Dillon, Fergal O' Brien and Nicky O' Farrell. Not forgetting the hugely promising First Aid man, Mike McNamara who had a 100% record up until today.
Well done again lads.
