  • JHC – Group 2 – Naomh Bríd 1-15 Mac Dáibhéid 3-10

    The senior hurlers opened their JHC campaign with a one point away win over Naomh Bríd at Musgrave in their first match of the group stage.

    CJ Sullivan opened the scoring with a well taken point, after good work involving Deaglan Mooney and Anthony Rowntree. Naomh Bríd levelled the game with a point from a free in the 8th minute but we were back in front when goalkeeper Thomas Maguire found Michael Rowntree from the puckout who fed a pinpoint pass to Marcas Toner and he split the posts. Another Marcas point stretched our lead but Naomh Bríd went on a run of scoring to take a 0-6 to 0-4 lead with Don Whelan striking our point from a converted free. We went further behind when Naomh Bríd goalled but we clawed our way back into the game with points from Don Whelan (0-3) and Peter Carleton. However, they stretched on with a brace of points from frees but on the stroke of half time Don Whelan finished to the Naomh Bríd net to leave the sides level at the break 1-8 to 1-8.

    We struck the first point of the second half after 5 minutes with Don Whelan adding to his tally and when Anthony Rowntree struck the Naomh Bríd net it appeared we had broken their resistance but Naomh Bríd hit back, reducing the deficit to the minimum. We responded with a fine individual point from Cormac Maguire and when a Don Whelan shot was saved by the Naomh Bríd keeper, Anthony Rowntree followed up on the rebound to fire the sliotar to the net. Naomh Bríd resistance was still not broken and they plugged away with four points to leave the game final balanced going into the last few minutes. We stood resolute and at the final whistle had picked up the two points on a winning score 1-15 to 3-10.

  • IFC – Group 3 – Mac Dáibhéid 1-13 Ros Earcain 0-10

    The senior footballers opened their IFC group campaign with a six point win over Ros Eracain at Páirc Mhic Dháibhéid.

    We were quick out of the blocks with points from Aaron Slane (45) and a Chris Rafferty free to establish an early advantage. Eoin McNeill pointed for Ros Earcain but Deaglan Mooney responded with a long range point to restore the two point advantage. Ros Earcain were back on level terms when goalkeeper Tiernan Boyle converted a free from 45 yards and Sean Ellis kicked a nice point. Both teams traded points with Aaron Slane and Chris Rafferty on target with the final point of the half coming from an Aaron Slane free to give us a point lead 0-6 to 0-5.

    We extended our lead on the restart with further points from Aaron Slane and Chris Rafferty while Sean Ellis replied with a point for the visitors. Gerard Slane restored our three point advantage with a well taken point. Further points were traded with Anto McGrattan on target following a good spell of possession football. A Ros Earcain point from a free by Ryan Lynch closed the gap to two but again Gerard Slane pointed to restore our goal lead.

    We doubled our lead in the 53rd minute when Padraig McParland was upended in the box and goalkeeper Aaron Slane dispatched the resultant penalty to the net. The teams again traded points with Anto McGrattan and Padraig McParland on target to leave us winners 1-13 to 0-10.

    Next up is an away trip to Con Magees on 27 August with a 6pm throw-in.

  • ACFL Div 2 – Mac Dáibhéid 3-10 Ard Eoin 0-11

    Following on from their win over Glenravel 2-6 to 0-11 the senior footballers were looking to finish their league campaign with a home win over Ard Eoin.

    We got off to the prefect start with CJ Sullivan finishing to the back of the Ard Eoin net after a good run from Niall McParland. Ard Eoin responded with two points but an Aaron Slane pointed free, a CJ Sullivan point following a good passage of play and a point from Niall McParland put us in control. We dominated from here on adding 1-3 with the points coming from Ryan Park, CJ Sullivan and Aaron Slane with the goal from Anthony Rowntree while restricting Ard Eoin to 0-3 – half time score 2-6 to 0-5.

    Ard Eoin scored the opening point of the second half but a Ryan Park goal and points from Chris Rafferty (f) and Aaron Slane more or less finished the game as a contest. We added further points from Aaron Slane and CJ Sullivan to win 3-10 to 0-11, finishing third in the league.

    Final League Standing
  • ACHL Div 3 – Lamh Dhearg 1-22 Mac Dáibhéid 2-10

    The senior hurlers led at the half time interval by a point but struggled to pick up the tempo in the second half and the Hannahstown men finished stronger to take the spoils.

    Lamh Dhearg started well with the opening three points but we were soon back on level terms with points from Michael Rowntree, Marcas Toner and Chris Gallagher. Both teams traded point for point with Colm McKee and Stephen McGivern on target. Lamh Dhearg edged into the lead before Michael Rowntree played a long pass to Marcas Toner who finished to the net and then extended our lead to a goal with another point. However, Lamh Dhearg regrouped, picking off the points and chipping away to take the lead 0-12 to 1-6. We responded with Marcas Toner second goal and points from Anthony Rowntree and Stephen McGivern. The final score of the half came from Lamh Dhearg leaving us a point in front 0-13 to 2-8.

    We struggled to get to the same tempo in the second half and were firmly on the back foot as Lamh Dhearg took control of the game. They quickly built up a commanding advantage, striking 1-9 while we could only manage two points from Stephen McGivern and Marcas Toner to leave them winners 1-22 to 2-10.

  • ACFL Div 2 – Naomh Uile 1-16 Mac Dáibhéid 1-3

    We travelled to Ballymena with the bare bones of a team and the final score does not reflect the effort and endeavour we put into the game, stifling Naomh Uile for long periods of the game.

    We trailed 0-7 to 0-3 at the break and in the second half had to contend with a sending off (2 yellows) and simultaneous black cards and it was during this period that Naomh Uile gained their dominance and capitalised to take the win 1-16 to 1-3.

  • ACFL Div 2 – Naomh Pól 3-10 Mac Dáibhéid 1-11

    The senior footballers came up short in their second game following the league split away to Naomh Pól at Shaws Road.

    We started brightly and led after 5 minutes with two points from CJ Sullivan. However, Naomh Pól took control of the game as they kicked 1-4 with their goal coming from a lobbed shot from 40 yards which sailed over the head of the back-tracking Aaron Slane. We responded well and were back on level terms after 22 minutes with a well taken goal and a Padraig McParland point. A further exchange of points, Padraig adding to his tally, had the sides level again but Naomh Pól finished the half stronger, tagging on 3 points to lead 1-7 to 0-7.

    Naomh Pól opened the second half scoring with a long range point but points from Aaron Slane and Chris Rafferty reduced the deficit to two. Naomh Pól restored their goal advantage but two points from Padraig McParland left one between the sides. However, Naomh Pól kicked their second goal to stop us in our tracks but we refused to give in adding points from Chris Rafferty (f) and Padraig McParland. Naomh Pól upped their effort again with a point but the killer blow was their third goal giving them a comfortable 6 point advantage with time almost up. A Gerard Slane point from a free brought the game to conclusion with Naomh Pól winners 3-10 to 1-11.

  • ACHL Div 3 – Glen Rovers 4-19 Mac Dáibhéid 2-13

    The hurlers travelled to a damp, cold and windy Armoy on Wednesday evening for this Division 3 encounter.

    Glen Rovers took advantage of the strong breeze in the first half and built up an early lead as they clinically picked off score after score from all angles and by the 17th minute had established a 1-5 to 0-1 advantage, with our point from a Stephen McGivern free. Glen Rovers dominated the first half and we struggled to contain their onslaught as they continued to pick off the scores including two majors. Despite a point from Stephen McGivern and a goal from Anthony Rowntree we were well in arrears at the half time whistle 3-14 to 1-2.

    With the assistance of the wind on the restart we played with more enthusiasm and determination and began to pick off some nice points, with Chris Gallagher (0-2), Anthony Rowntree and Antoin McLaughlin all on target. Glen Rovers responded with 3 points on the spin but we then enjoyed our best spell of the game with Peter Carleton goalling, Chris Gallagher adding 0-3 and a point from Marcas Toner. Another Glen Rovers minor was followed with further points from Peter Carleton and Chris Gallagher (0-2) which put more respectability on the score line but a Glen Rovers goal at the end took a bit of the gloss of our second half performance with Glen Rovers the winners 4-19 to 2-13.
