Crotta 0-14 Abbeydorney 1-11
Three late points by Shane Nolan, on Saturday 14th August in Austin Stacks Park was enough to salvage a late draw for Crotta, and help them to top the table in Group 3. The influential Crotta Captain pulling his side back from the brink, as they were left chase Abbeydorney for most of the afternoon.
A first half goal by Michael Slattery had Abbeydorney 1-9 to 0-5 up at the half time interval, but a resurgence from Crotta in the second half, was enough to leave them top of Group 3, by score difference.
