We started the game well and took a very early lead in the game with good tackling back by Dylan O’Hare forced a defensive error and Dylan was able to shoot to the net. The visitors battled back and scored 4 unanswered points. At half time the teams were separated by only two points at 1.07 to 1.05.
In the second half we stepped up the effort with good distribution from goalkeeper Conor O’Keefe our midfield players Charlie Smyth and Sean O’Hare started to dominate.
In defence Matthew Morgan, Shane Keenan and Thomas Hardy had good games. Dane McNeill and Liam Mathers step up a gear in the 2nd half along with captain Jamie McKay at centre half back.
Up front Liam McManus and Dylan O’Hare worked hard for the team along with Jamie Cahill and Dan Griffin. Adam Crimmins had an influential game and unfortunately picked up an injury, we wish Adam a speedy recovery.
