It took ten minutes before Trevor O’Keeffe got the first score and what a beauty it was from 40yrds out on his left foot put it over the bar.Nemo went up field and got their first point from a free kick. They followed by another point from play. Trevor O’Keeffe got his second point which was well worked. Stephen O’Keeffe then got our third point from free kick.Nemo then got one back from a free. Then a lack of concentration after kick out left Nemo in for a goal to make it 0-3 to 1-3. Trevor O’Keeffe then got his third from a free. Nemo got their fourth point from a free also. Half time score Aghada 0-4 Nemo 1-4. Conor O Driscoll replaced Tom O’Neill for The second half which started slow and defensive again.
