Seneschalstown were unfortunate to lose out to Na Fianna in the u-13 Division 2 League final this afternoon at Dunsany. The opening quarter belonged to Seneschalstown with midfielder Sean Commons opening the scoring after 2 minutes. Na Fianna responded with 2 points in the fourth minute from their captain - one of which was a free. Referee Tom Lorton disallowed a Ross Mullen goal for a 'square ball'. However, Seneschalstown picked off the next four scores with Alan Mulvany (free), Jamie Kirwan, Joseph Moore and a free from Dylan Keating giving Seneschalstown a 0-05 0-02 lead after fifteen minutes. Na Fianna did respond with a point from play before Mulvany put over his second point again from a free. In the 20th minute the Enfield/Baconstown side rattled the Seneschalstown net for the first time after the corner forward put the ball past 'keeper Brian Boyd to level matters. Immediately though, Seneschalstown responded with a major of their own when Sean Careys point attempt dropped under the bar and into the net. Na Fianna responded with two frees before Boyd produced a terrific penalty save as well as from the rebound to keep the 'town in front. Seneschalstown worked the ball upfield and won a free which Mulvany tapped over to send the Yellow Furze men into the changing rooms with a two point lead.

In the 35th minute Na Fianna landed a double blow to Seneschalstown with their midfielder pointing and corner forward bagging his second goal with a powerful finish to the bottom left hand corner of the net. They also landed 3 points from play to open up a three point lead. With 12 minutes left Carey pointed to narrow the gap to two. Two minutes later substitute Jason Lyons bundled the ball to the net after Mulvany's free hit the bar.
