County Senior Football League: Oola 3-11 v Hospital 1-8

Oola had a good win over Hospital Herbertstown in the County Senior Football League in Hospital on Saturday night. Hospital raced into an early 2 point lead but Derek Ryan settled things down when he dispatched a penalty after 8 minutes. Further points from Keith Bourke, Daniel Quirke and Derek Ryan and an Eddie Kiely goal gave Oola a 2-5 to 0-4 halftime lead. Early second half points from Denis Moloney, Kevin Nolan and Raymond Ryan had Oola in the driving seat but Hospital Herbertstown responded well with some well taken points and a great goal before a Daniel Quirke goal and points from Derek Nolan and Kevin Nolan completed the scoring.
