ACHL Div 4 – Mac Dáibhéid 2-25 Naomh Bríd 1-18

The senior hurlers secured another good win with victory over Naomh Bríd at Pairc Mhic Dháibhéid on Sunday.

Naomh Bríd had early joy as they reeled off three points before Stephen McGivern struck a nice point to get us off the mark. We were then rocked as a Naomh Bríd goal extended their advantage, however any celebrations were short lived as Marcas Toner blasted to the next from the ensuing puck out. The next point went to Naomh Bríd but points from Stephen McGivern and Don Whelan kept us on their coat tails. Two well struck pointed frees added to the Musgrave sides tally but we then enjoyed our best spell of the game with points from Don Whelan (0-3), Jay Maguire (0-2), Colm McKee, Caoimhin Heaney, Marcas Toner and Cormac Maguire. A brace of Naomh Bríd points left us four in front at the break 1-12 to 1-8.

Both teams started the second half with efforts which drifted wide of the uprights but it wasn’t long before normal service was resumed and both teams were back on target. We scored heavily in the half with points from Don Whelan (0-5), Marcas Toner (0-3), Jay Maguire (0-3), Colm McKee, Caoimhin Heaney and a goal from Cormac Maguire. Naomh Bríd did their best to stay in the game, scoring ten second half points (0-5fs) but our excellent score taking was more than enough to see us over the line.

Scorers: Don Whelan 0-9, M Toner 1-5, Jay Maguire 0-4, C McKee 0-2, S McGivern 0-2, C Heaney 0-2 and C Maguire 1-1
