Cappincur  2- 11 Edenderry 1-12

Edenderry suffered their first defeat of the current league campaign by losing to Cappincur by two points on Wednesday evening in Cappincur. Edenderry went into an early lead of 3 points to 1 but then hit a bad period when conceding 1-4 without reply to go 5 points down. Derek Kelly scored a great goal to put us back in the game and the sides went in level at 1-7 each. Despite going ahead by a point on three occasions in the second half we could not extend the lead any further. Cappincur won the game with their second goal from poor Edenderry defending and saw out the game to win by 2 points. Cappincur played this game with the intensity and commitment of a championship game and deserved their win. Edenderry have much work ahead to make a serious impression on the latter stages of the championship.
