Date: 2nd June 2010

Venue: St.Annes 9

Competition: AFL 1 round 7

Raheny   0-8       Sylvesters  0-12

A dissapointing result for the lads who came into this game on the back of a good win against Erins Isle. Raheny started well with Eoin Delaney and John Ryan causing Sylvesters numerous problems in defence. However, Sylvesters showed they are top of the league for a reason and came back into the game with a series of quick points to put them into the driving seat at half time where they led by 4 points.

Sylvesters started the second half brightly and went 6 points clear before the introduction of Ciaran Whelan gave Raheny a lift and brought them back into the game with 3 points in it in the dying moments. Sylvesters would not be denied thought and saw out the game to win by 4 points. Raheny move on to two tough league fixtures in a few weeks against Ballyboden and Oliver Plunketts.
