Dulwich Harps club notes 12th June 2017

The senior men’s team suffered their first defeat of the season as they lost to Thomas McCurtains in the Mularkey Cup quarter final. The Harps started the game well and scored three unanswered points however McCurtains battled back into the game and a goal on the stroke of halftime left the scores level at the break.

The blues started the second half sluggishly and a number of scores from McCurtains opened up a wind assisted lead which seemed to be unassailable. However to the Harps credit they fought back and ended up loosing the game by a single point on the score line of 1-08 to 0-10.
