Senior Football v Colaiste Chriost Ri in Douglas 11th January 2018
PBC travelled to Páirc Colmcille for our first GAA match against Chriost Ri in many years. On a foggy and cold day, both teams found it difficult to create chances in the early stages on the heavy pitch. After a tight first half, Chriost Ri lead 1-5 to 1-2 at half time.
In the second half PBC continued to defend well and create scoring opportunities while not always converting them. The scores were level with a minute to go before Chriost Ri scored 2 points to win on a scoreline of 1-13 to 2-8. Management were happy with this as preparation for the Munster championship game next week against Gaelcholaiste Tralee.
