The McGovern Directional Drilling sponsored senior team were victorious over Michael Glaveys on Saturday evening on a scoreline of 2-12 to 0-11. Boyle started bright in a match that was to be played without their county stars. Both team traded scores and only one point separated the teams at half time. Both teams again traded points in the second half until Dylan East hit the net after some good work from Seamus Kane. Kane also got a goal himself later in the match from the penalty spot after Tadgh McKenna got pulled down in the square. Boyle closed out the match well and never looked in bother for the final result. Next up is Fuerty on May 8th.
