Our Seniors first game after the break resulted in a home defeat to Maghery at a wet Pairc na Gael. Despite missing a few regulars this gave an opportunity for others to stake a claim for a starting jersey ahead of the Championship game on 22 August. 

Maghery got the upper hand in the first half hitting 1-5 to a solidarity point from Jack Grugan by the 15th minute. Finnén Maguire (2) and Jack Grugan added points from frees but the visitors hit another goal and further points before Michael Beagan curled over an effort just before the break to leave it 0-5 to 2-8 at half time. 

In the second half Maghery kept the pressure on with a goal and a point early on but points from James Gray, Jack Grugan (2) and Finnén Maguire gave hope of a mini revival. However, further points from the visitors secured the two league points. 

Team: Conor McGivern, Chris Loughran, Damien McGeown, Sean Lynch, James Gray (0-1), Michael Beagan (Capt 0-1), Fearghal Nugent, Richard Gribben, Pauric Gribben, Finnén Maguire (0-3), Gavin McParland, Brendan Toner, Jack Grugan (0-5), Joe Gribben, Kieran Hughes. Subs: Chris Kennedy for R.Gribben, Brian McClelland for F.Nugent, Ryan Harvey for J.Gribben, Aodhan Toner for D.McGeown.
