The Reserve Footballers had their first outing of the season when Ballykinlar visited on Friday evening past. Despite steady rain and biting cold both teams served up a thrilling contest which ended all square 1-12 to 2-9. An Riocht played with the wind on their backs and led 0-10 to 1-2 at the break, Conor Clarke converting seven frees right and left from seven attempts. An Riocht played well with Conor McVeigh operating as sweeper allowing defenders Liam Rodgers and Stephen Corr advance for points apiece. The long passing back to front from Michael Harper opened up the visitors and Ryan Spiers used his pace to get clear to shoot the other first half point.

Ballykinlar improved on the restart and a few early scores made the match more competitive and asked questions of the An Riocht defence though breakaway points apiece from Nathan McComiskey and Darragh Campbell kept An Riocht in front. Then the visitors hit a scoring spree and An Riocht needed a late Joe McCartan goal to come away with a share of the spoils.

Team: Brendan Allen, Stephen Corr, Chris Mulligan, Ryan Clarke, Joe McCartan, Liam Rodgers, Michael Clarke, Dane Matthews, Conor Clarke, Aidan McVeigh, Conor McVeigh, James Reilly, Paddy McComiskey, Michael Harper, Ryan Spiers.

Subs: Darragh Campbell, Nathan McComiskey, Christopher Morgan.

Our thanks to the dedicated coaches who give of their time to ensure this is a living concept and to generous sponsors Subway Kilkeel and EM Sheehan Chartered Certified Accountants.
