Beaufort Seniors hosted Killarney Legion in Round 7 of the Division 2 County League on Saturday, 01st July in Beaufort. Despite Beaufort winning breaking ball, Legion had the upper hand throughout the first half of the game with three points, two from frees for Jamie O'Sullivan in the opening twelve minutes. Beaufort's first score did not come until the sixteenth minute, when mid fielder Ronan Murphy powered the ball over the crossbar after a quick pass from Darragh Coffey. Coffey in turn got Beaufort's second point of the evening a couple of minutes later. Legion however were quick to retaliate with Jamie O'Sullivan scoring four points, one from a free, and a point Thomas Moriarty. Half time score:- Beaufort 0-02 Killarney Legion 0-08
The second half of the game opened with Beaufort once again winning the throw in, but unlike the opening half, Darragh Coffey went on to score the first point. This was answered by Killarney Legion's Conor Keane getting his first point of the evening. Beaufort's Fergal Hallissey went on to score two more points for the home side, one from a free and following a couple of wides and a short ball, Legion's Thomas Moriarty fisted the ball over the bar pushing Legion a bit further ahead. The turning point for Beaufort came in the eleventh minute with Liam Carey scoring his first point of the day and then rapidly adding a second to his personal tally. Beaufort had three more unanswered points, two from frees for Fergal Hallissey, and one from Ciaran Kennedy from play to bring the sides level for the first time at ten points each. Legion pushed forward once again with a point from a free for Jamie O'Sullivan. Over the final twelve minutes or so, both sides struggled with possession and Legion had a series of wides, but in the dying minutes of normal time Beaufort's Kevin Ferris levelled the game once again with a quick point that was well executed. Unfortunately, there was a brief display of unrest before the final whistle blew, for which Beaufort's Padraig Doona and Legion's Chris Davies were given red cards.
