Milford v Four Masters – 23/08/20

Milford – 0:16       Four Masters – 1:13

Four Masters came away from Moyle Park on Sunday with a hard earned draw against the home side.

The visitors started the game strongly with points from Leo McHugh and Cian Hegarty and a goal from Patrick Reid within the first 10 minutes, and went on to dominate the game and the scoreboard for the first half of the game. Four Masters lead by 5 points at half time and increased their lead to 7 points after eight minutes of the second half with points from Patrick Reid and Cian Hegarty.

However from the 9th minute of the second half onwards Milford started to increase their dominance around the middle of the field, picking up most of the breaking ball in that sector. As the second half wore on they were able to convert their possession into scores and deep into injury time at the end of game held a one point lead.

With time running out Sean O’Kennedy proved to be the man of the moment when he popped up at the end of a sweeping Four Masters move to fist over the equalising point.

On the day a draw was probably a fair result for both team, with Four Masters letting a big lead get chipped away and Milford probably thinking they had done enough in the second half to win the game.

Milford now go into the relegation play-off series and Four Masters retain their senior championship status.

This is a young Four Masters team with 5 of the squad that played today in their debut senior championship season. Pat Campbell and his management team will appreciate the courage and enthusiasm shown by all these young men throughout the championship games this year, and also the leadership and quality shown by the more experienced warriors like Martin Cassidy, Barry Dunnion, Kevin McBrearty and Sean O’Kennedy.
