Drumquin’s hopes of making a serious challenge in Junior football this season suffered quite a setback with a very heavy defeat against what can only be described as a rampant Errigal Ciaran Thirds. The Wolfe Tones started well with early points from Eamon Teague and Ryan Mc Callion but from there on it was all down hill. In spite of two late points approaching half time by Niall Mc Aloon, the Drumquin lads still trailed at half time 1-4 to 0-5, James Harte with the Errigal goal.
The second half was an even sorrier tale for Drumquin who managed to register only three points in that thirty minute period . Barry Gormley was on target early in the second half but Errigal continued to dominate and eased to a 2-11 to 0-8 win with Eamon Teague adding two late points for his side. Michael Harte got the visitors second goal as well as contributing a number of points with Damian McDermott on target as well.
