This Sunday saw the Ulster league meeting between Sarsfields and Bryansford County Down, playing in Éire Óg’s pitch on a cold and wet afternoon. With Sarsfields playing into the wind in the first half it was to be Johnny Reynolds and Richard Stevenson who opened the day’s scores with a point each on the board. Twelve minutes into the first half, Sarsfields’ goalkeeper Darren McEvoy denied Bryansford’s full forward Maginn and it was up to their own Brannigan to return two points to the scoreboard. Richard Stevenson and Kevin O’Hagan added three points for Sarsfields before a long range goal from Johnny Reynolds ended a slow first half performance Sarsfields GFC 1-5 Bryansford GAC 0-2.

As the weather calmed, the second half proved to be a thrilling performance for both sides in the 30 minutes. Never to disappoint, two opening scores from Sarsfields’ Johnny Reynolds soon put the North Armagh side in good form. Sarsfields duo Eamon McGeown and Thomas McAlinden scored 1-2 within 5 minutes to keep ‘The Hoops’ ahead for all of the second half. Bryansford and Down player Danny Savage displayed a valiant effort with a goal chance only to be denied by the Sarsfields goalkeeper, which left it up to O’Higgins and Keenan kicking two points over the bar to get Bryansford back into the game. With Darragh O’Hanlon scoring his first point for Sarsfields Seniors, he and Johnny Reynolds kept the North Armagh team with a comfortable lead. Bryansford’s Young, Keenan and McKenna returned scores late in the second half but a strong half performance gave Sarsfields their fourth victory with full time score Sarsfields 2-13 Bryansford 0-10.
