SEAN O MAHONYS
The Sean O’Mahony’s Senior team lost out to St Martin’s in their 2nd league game of the season on the Point Road on Sunday afternoon. In a fairly even first half, 4 points from Stephen Kilcoyne, plus 1 each from Sean Mathews and Ben McLoughlin left the Martin’s 2 ahead at the break, on a scoreline of 8 points to 6 points. However in the second half, the strain of all the injury’s in the O’Mahony’s squad was apparent as the lads from Monasterboice pulled away with some very well taking scores, 6 scores in a row at one stage which included one green flag, to win by 10 points at the end. Ben McLoughlin with a brace of points and one from play from Terry Kelly were the only replies from the Dundalk side. While it is great to see so many young players getting first team experience, I sure the Management team are hoping some of the injured players will become available for selection some time soon. Full time score SOM 0-9 Martins 1-16. Next Sunday we are away to st Pat’s at 3pm

Jody Keenan scored from play on 12 mins to leave the Gaels trailing by two. Another D’hill free widened the gap to 3 before a Jody Keenan free and 2 fine Micheál McCabe points left it all square. The Hill went one up with a fantastic long range score before a Jody free levelled it again.

Minor Team Match Result:
O’Raghallaighs 1-11, Dreadnots 2-12
The north roaders travelled to the coast to take on the favourite for the league in their own back yard in this Division 2 minor match and put up an outstanding performance. In their first match of the season, they started slowly with a lot of handling errors but their work rate couldn’t be questioned. They put a lot of pressure on the home team’s shooting thus forcing a lot of wides. At half time they trailed by 7 points with only 2 scores from Kyle McElroy and another from Ciaran Kinsella on the board.
The hoops came out in the second half a different team and got on top of their hosts. Scores quickly followed from McElroy (3) Kinsella , Lee Grifferty, Tony Smith as well as two from Connel Rice with his left foot. Yes folks, miracles do happen. They continued their dominance when McElroy nicked the ball from the home keeper and smashed it to the net. At this point, the visitors were on top with a solid base from Dylan Lynch and Ronan Collins who were rock solid.
They were ably supported by Aaron Lawlor and Tony Smith who worked tirelessly in midfield, and Ewan Sweeney and Ciaran Kinsella were also prominent. Dylan Curran in goals was excellent. The visitors lost Andrew Collier to injury and alas they were unable to hang on against a much more physical team. A lot to work with next up is a home game against the Blues on Monday week at home.
Team: Dylan Curran, James Smith, Dylan Lynch, Ryan Brodigan, Andrew Collier, Ronan Collins, Ewan Sweeney, Tony Smith (0-1) Aaron Lawlor, Ciaran Kinsella (0-2), Kyle McElroy (1-5), Nathan Cassidy, Ben Moonan, Connel Rice (0-2), Conor McKenna, Lee Grifferty (0-1), Oliver Clutterbuck, Rory O’Neill
