Garadice Gaels prevail

Garadice Gaels bagged their third brace of U-16 League points with a five point victory over Kiltubrid at the latter’s grounds on a cold and wet evening on Tuesday of last week. For the players there was more to be endured than enjoyed. The heavy rain before and during the game led to difficult underfoot conditions, forcing honest endeavour to take precedence over skill. The game was never less than competitive, and the final outcome was in doubt up until the middle of the second half. Patrick Meehan opened Kiltubrid’s account with a first minute point, and the Gaels’ Peter Prior levelled the scores two minutes later. The visitors took the lead when the two youngest players on the team Stephen Meissner and Peter Prior combined well for the latter to plant the ball in the net. The hosts responded with a point each courtesy of Stephen McLoughlin and Owen Dolan in the 11th and 13th minutes respectively to narrow the deficit to the minimum.

Unfortunately for the home side, they failed to convert much of their fine teamwork into scores. In the 20th minute excellent Garadice defender cum attacker Donal McCabe left a posse of players in his wake as he soloed all of sixty yards before offloading to Stephen Meissner, who arrowed to the net. Kiltubrid’s response was almost a carbon copy of the Garadice player’s sally, when Owen Dolan rounded several markers before putting Patrick Meehan through for a goal. Before half time Stephen McLoughlin pointed a free to leave the sides level at half time. Garadice left it until the last quarter before two goals catapulted them to victory. When Pierce Dolan was fouled on the resumption he pointed his free, and Kiltubrid’s Conor Prior levelled the scores. Michael Prior, with Stephen Meissner as provider, bagged the Gaels’ third goal in the 17th minute, and Kiltubrid’s last hurrah was a point each from Paddy Kelly and Stephen McLoughlin. The winners’ last two scores fell to elusive forward Peter Prior, who pointed a free and climaxed a good display of marksmanship with a late goal, that left the score- line reading 4-3 to 1-7.

The Garadice Gaels lineout was Yann Le Guen, Donal McCabe, Jason Prior, Ronan McTague, Ronan Maxwell, Pierce Dolan (0-1), Fergal McTague, Michael Prior (1-0), Niall Stringer, Stephen Meissner (1-0) and Peter Prior (2-2). Sub used: Darragh Maxwell. PS: Garadice Gaels were due to play Glenfarne-Kilty on last Friday in Aughawillan, but G.K. conceded the points

Drumreilly v Bornacoola

Drumreilly strengthened their Division 1 position with a creditable performance against Bornacoola at Páirc Droim Oir Bhealaigh on last Saturday evening. Mark Mc Closkey gave the visitors a 3rd minute lead, taken away a minute later by the in-form James Holahan, and the winners were never subsequently in arrears. Their first half scores came from the boots of James Holahan (2-2), Damon Maguire (1-1), and a point each, courtesy of Nigel Maguire and Brian Fee. Mark McCloskey (2pts.), Damian Moran (2pts), and Kevin Shanley (pt.) had kept the Bors in contention.

However, as half-time approached they were felled by two goals in as many minutes. In the 28th minute Declan Maxwell at the corner of the square on the end-line rose high to knock down a floated free into the path of James Holahan, who made contact to send to the net. A minute later in the same position Maxwell replicated his earlier feat to facilitate a Damon Maguire goal. Youthful Conor Gaffney, a threat throughout, picked off a Drumreilly point on the resumption, and in the 8th minute alert Damon Maguire was ideally placed to rifle to the net. Brian Conroy and Damon Maguire traded scores and Nigel Maguire’ point punished a foul on Declan Maxwell. James Holahan and Brian Conroy exchanged points, and Bornacoola’s last score of the evening was a goal. A point each form free taker Nigel Maguire and Conor Gaffney ended the evening’s action, leaving the scores reading 4-11 to 1-8.
