  • ACFL Div 2 – Naomh Treasa 1-16 Mac Dáibhéid 0-11

    Following a defeat to Naomh Pádraig in their last outing, following the league split, the senior footballers travelled to the Glen Road to take take on league leaders Naomh Treasa, hoping to get back on the winning trail.

    The first half was very competitive with both teams playing some good football and there was never more than 2 points between the teams with the sides level on five separate occasions. At half time the teams could not be separated with the scores level 0-8 to 0-8.

    The second half followed a similar pattern with both teams adding to their tally, however it was Naomh Treasa who started to dominate and they subsequently went on a s coring spree of 1-5 to open up a seven point advantage. We had no answer at this stage and despite tagging on a few points Naomh Treasa ran out winner 1-16 to 0-11.

  • ACHL Div 4 – Mac Dáibhéid 1-11 Gortnamona 2-11

    The top two teams in the league found themselves pitted against each other in the opening game following the league split. This time we had home advantage over Gortnamona and following our defeat last time out, against the same opposition, we were hopeful of putting the performance required to keep our chance of league success alive.

    As with the first game both teams were very deliberate in the early stages, but we settled better this time and took an 0-4 to 0-1 lead after 13 minutes with Marcas Toner, Jay Maguire and Stephen McGivern (0-2) getting on the scoreboard, with the Gortnamona response coming from a pointed free. The next four points went the way of Gortnamona but a high ball in towards the large square was neatly flicked by Stephen Thompson to the Gort net to give us a two-point lead. Both teams added points from frees (Don Whelan) with the final score a Gortnamona point leaving the minimum between the sides at half time 1-5 to 0-7 in our favour.

    Within two minutes of the restart, we were totally rocked as Gortnamona struck two goals, one from a long range shot which found its way to the net and the other a scrappy flick through a crowd of players, both definitely avoidable and from one up, we were now five in arrears. Both teams went on a three-point scoring exchange with Chris Gallagher scoring a long range free and Jay Maguire and Don Whelan adding to their tallies. Points from Cormac Maguire and Marcas Toner (f) reduced the deficit to a goal, but a Gortnamona point gave them the assurance score with time running out. In the dyng seconds Liam McCaffrey raced through the Gortnamona defence and fired a shot, goal bound which clipped the top of the crossbar and went over for a point leaving Gortnamona winners 1-11 to 2-11.

    This was a game that got away from us and one we should have got something from, but we must now regroup for the remainder of the league games and do our utmost to secure the runners up spot.

    Scorers: S Thompson 1-0, J Maguire 0-2, M Toner 0-2, D Whelan 0-2, S McGivern 0-2, C Gallagher 0-1, C Maguire 0-1 and L McCaffrey 0-1.

  • ACHL Div 4 – Gortnamona 2-13 Mac Dáibhéid 1-12

    The senior hurlers suffered their first defeat of the season when going down in a top of the table clash to Gortnamona at Páirc Mhic Ionnrachtaigh on Sunday.

    It was a cagey opening from both sides with a Caoimhin Heaney point opening our account followed by a Don Whelan pointed free to give us an 0-2 to 0-1 lead after four minutes. We then created two great goal scoring opportunities which we failed to convert and were subsequently punished when Gortnamona struck the opening goal of the game. A further brace of points extended the Gorts lead to four but points from Colm McKee and Don Whelan kept us on their coat tails. Again, Gortnamona opened a four-point advantage but two well executed points from frees by Don Whelan once again left two between the sides. The killer blow came in the 25th minute when Gortnamona struck their second goal and when they tagged on three injury time points, they lead by eight. A Stephen McGivern point left us trailing 2-8 to 0-7 at the break.

    Both teams exchanged point for point in the opening ten minutes of the second half with Jay Maguire and Don Whelan, pointing. We started to claw our way back into the game when Colm McKee pointed, and Don Whelan dispatched a penalty to the net to reduce the Gort lead to a goal. However, we were never able to get any closer as the final 15 minutes both teams cancelled each other out point for point with Don Whelan and Deaglan Mooney adding to our tally. At the final whistle Gortnamona took the spoils with a deserved win by four points 2-13 to 1-12.

    Scorers: D Whelan 1-6, C McKee 0-2, C Heaney 0-1, D Mooney 0-1, S McGivern 0-1 and J Maguire 0-1

  • ACFL Div 2 – Mac Dáibhéid 2-10 Naomh Treasa 0-5

    The senior footballers totally outplayed Naomh Treasa, at home to run out emphatic winners by a wide margin. It was a game in which we totally dominated the league leaders all over the park from early on and there was only going to be one winner.

    While both teams exchanged points to level at 0-3 to 0-3 with Pádraig McParland, Sean O’Neill and Nathan Maginn on the mark, we were playing the more controlled football and were rewarded with a Paul McLaughlin point and then a clinical goal finish from Gerard Slane who quickly followed up with a point to have us in front at the break 1-5 to 0-3.

    We continued our dominance in the second half and Naomh Treasa struggled to get any foothold in the game. Points from Sean O’Neill (0-2), Gerard Slane and Anthony Rowntree and a killer goal and point from CJ Sullivan saw us decisive winners on a score of 2-10 to 0-5.

    Scorers: P McParland 0-1, G Slane 1-2, P McLaughlin 0-1, N Maginn 0-1, S O’Neill 0-3, A Rowntree 0-1 and CJ Sullivan 1-1.

    We followed up this success with an excellent win away to Naomh Pól at Shaws Road on Sunday evening, running out victors by a goal on a scoreline of 0-9 to 1-9 and again it was another solid performance and a win which was well merited.
