Dixon with last gasp point

Our Junior footballers drew to a very strong St. Annes team this evening in the league. The lads were 5 points down after 15 minutes in the first half but goals from Diarmuid Murphy and Declan O’Leary gave us a 5 point lead at the break. Annes started to slowly creep into the game and they goaled with 10 left and then goaled again with 7 left after Anthony Roche pulled up with what looked like a hamstring injury. They scored a couple of points to put them into the lead before Dixon evaded a few challenges to equalise for the last kick of the game. Championship next Friday evening v Oylegate/Glenbrien in Monageer at 7pm.
