  • ACFL Div 2 – Pádraig Sárseil 0-7 Mac Dáibhéid 0-12

    The senior footballers made it two wins in a row with a win away to Pádraig Sárseil at the Bear Pit on Wednesday evening.

    Pádraig Sárseil opened the scoring after 2 minutes with a point from a free but Anto McGrattan levelled after picking up a breaking ball and soloing 40 yards before tapping between the sticks. Both teams then traded points from frees with Gerard Slane on target, before young Conor Sullivan split the posts with a shot off the outside of his boot to put us in front at the water break. Despite having plenty of possession Pádraig Sárseil crowded the scoring zone and made it difficult for us to work the ball into scoring positions. Gerard Slane kicked another point from a free but Pádraig Sárseil replied with their third point. Stephen Tully then kicked his first point of the night, when he dropped the shoulder, stepped by his man and finished from 40 yards out. Pádraig Sárseil finished the half with 2 points to level the game at 0-5 a piece.

    On the restart both teams traded further points with Anthony Rowntree turning provider for Stephen Tully to add another point before Stephen kicked a long range point from a free. With the teams level at 0-7 we started to run more at the Sárseil defense and as they tired they were guilty of conceding frees which Stephen Tully (0-3) converted to give us a goal advantage. Final points from Anthony Rowntree and Gerard Slane gave us the deserved win on a score of 0-7 to 0-12 and another 2 points.

  • ACHL Div 3 – Ros Earcain 3-15 Mac Dáibhéid 2-8

    The senior hurlers came out second best in this away fixture to Ros Earcain last Sunday. We produced a lack lustre performance and Ros Earcain were worthy winners.

    We were well in the game in the opening quarter with points from Cormac Maguire, Stephen McGivern and Don Whelan (0-2) with the sides level at 0-4 a piece. However, Ros Earcain then delivered a killer blow with their first goal of the game and quickly followed with a brace of points to stamp their authority on the game. Despite a Don Whelan pointed free it was Ros Earcain who finished the half the stronger with 2 points from frees to lead 1-8 to 0-5 at the break.

    Don Whelan pointed a free on the restart but Ros Earcain responded with a further 2 point salvo. Marcus Toner then fired over a nice point while on the run but a Ros Earcain second goal then left us with it all to do. Don Whelan pointed before Anthony Rowntree used his strength to push past his marker and finished to the back of the Ros Earcain net to leave us 2 goals in arrears. However, any hopes of a comeback were short-lived as Ros Earcain responded with 1-2 to put the game to bed. We got a consolation goal from a Don Whelan free but a final Ros Earcain point from a free gave them a 3-15 to 2-8 win.

  • ACFL Div 2 – Mac Dáibhéid 1-11 Naomh Pól 1-7

    The senior footballers picked up their first points of the league campaign when they deservedly accounted for Naomh Pól at Páirc Mac Dáibhéid on Wednesday night.

    This was a much improved performance on our recent outings and for long periods of the first half Naomh Pól couldn’t cope with the pace of our attack and support play which gave us many scoring opportunities. At the first water break we had established a lead of 0-5 to 0-2 with 5 different scorers Michael Connolly, Aaron Slane, Conor Toner, Gerard Slane and Anthony McGrattan. From the restart we pushed on with points from CJ Sullivan (0-2), one with the outside of the boot from the right side of the pitch, Gerard Slane (0-2) and Paul McKinney to take an 8 point advantage at the interval 0-10 to 0-2.

    Naomh Pól pointed from a free on the restart but when Anthony Rowntree stormed out of defense, laid a pass to CJ Sullivan who passed to Stephen Tully who fed the ball to Marcus Toner who raced goalwards and hammered the ball past the Naomh Pól keeper. Naomh Pól then enjoyed their best spell of the game kicking 1-4 to reduce our lead to a goal but as time ticked away Aaron Slane slotted over a free to give us the insurance score and we ran out due winners 1-11 to 1-7.

    Scorers: Michael Connolly 0-1, Aaron Slane 0-2, Conor Toner 0-1, Gerard Slane 0-3, Anthony McGrattan 0-1, CJ Sullivan 0-2, Paul McKinney 0-1 and Marcus Toner 1-0.

  • ACFL Div 2 – All Saints Ballymena 2-16 Mac Dáibhéid 0-6

    The senior footballers were well in this game at half time away to All Saints Ballymena after a spirited first half performance as we trailed 0-5 to 0-4. However, the performance in the second half didn’t mirror the effort of the first and Ballymena totally dominated all over the pitch to secure a deserved win 2-16 to 0-6.

  • ACHL Div 3 – Mac Dáibhéid 0-13 Glenravel 1-15

    This was an enthralling contest between two well matched teams which went down to the wire.

    Marcus Toner opened the scoring with a well taken point from distance before Glenravel levelled with a point from a free. A good puck out from Joe McCaffrey found Darach Maher who split the uprights to restore our lead. However, Glenravel got into a better rhythm and rallied with 4 points (2f) in a row. We upped the tempo of our game and responded with points from Don Whelan either side of the score of the game, involving good build up play from Caoimhin Heaney and Peter Carleton and finished by Marcus Toner. Darach Maher then struck his second point of the game to level the game before Don Whelan pointed from distance to give us the lead. Glenravel then drew level and with the last puck of the half converted a free to give them the lead 0-7 to 0-8.

    Glenravel got the opening point of the second half but Marcus Toner punished a weak clearance from the Glenravel back line and he flighted the ball back over the bar. Both teams battled intensively to get the upper hand adding to their totals with some well taken points (Don Whelan 0-1, Darach Maher 0-1) to level the game at 0-10 o 0-10. We then hit a barren patch as Glenravel fired over 4 points, before Don Whelan pointed from a free to leave a goal between the sides. Both teams tagged on a point each (Don Whelan) before we were dealt a hammer blow as Glenravel struck a late goal to open up a 6 point advantage. A Don Whelan pile driver was destined for a goal but was flicked over the Glenravel bar for a point and Glenravel had done enough to secure the win 0-13 to 1-15.

  • ACHL Div 3 – Carryduff 2-18 Mac Dáibhéid 1-9

    Despite the losing margin the senior hurlers produced a solid performance even in defeat. We were well in the game and it was only after the second water break that Carryduff pulled away for the victory.

    Both teams battled hard from the start with plenty of big hits in a tough but fair encounter trading point for point with Stephen McGivern on target with 3 points from frees, before an opportune goal edged the home side in front 1-3 to 0-3. Carryduff extended their lead with 3 unanswered points but we finished the half on the up as Stephen McGivern added another 2 points to his tally to leave us trailing 1-6 to 0-5 at the break.

    Carryduff extended their lead on the restart with another brace of points and while Stephen McGivern pointed a 65, Carryduff struck another 2 points. Marcus Toner then got on target with a point and then a great attack saw Anthony Rowntree take possession of the sliotar, lay it off to Cormac Maguire who blasted it to the Carryduff net to reduce the Carryduff lead to a goal.

    However, the water break halted any momentum we had built and from the resumption Carryduff pushed on, finishing the stronger and with another goal opened up their advantage. We dug deep and despite further points from Marcus Toner and Stephen McGivern, Carryduff tagged on a few points and took the victory on a scoreline of 2-18 to 1-9.

  • ACFL Div 2 – Mac Dáibhéid 0-3 Glenravel 2-9

    Glenravel proved too strong for our senior footballers at Páirc Mac Dáibhéid last Sunday.

    We never really got going in this game and Glenravel were much better all over the pitch and led by 1-3 to 0-0 after 11 minutes. Niall Hughes kicked our first point of the game after a nice solo run from his own half and from 40 yards out split the posts. We added a further point but 2 pointed Glenravel frees left us trailing 0-2 to 1-5 at the break.

    Glenravel opened the scoring in the second half with a point from a 45 and we responded with a pointed free from Gerard Slane. We then endured a good spell of possession but failed to take any opportunities and were guilty of over playing the ball at times. Glenravel picked of their points when the chances presented and another goal in between gave them a stranglehold on the game and they were worthy winners on a score of 0-3 to 2-9.
