Senior UpdateClann 4-15 1-11 St. Croans
Our Matrix Bathrooms sponsored Men's Senior team faced St. Croans in the Relegation Play-Off Semi-Final Replay in the Hyde on Sunday.
After a drawn game the weekend previous, Clann new they needed to up their game to avoid reaching the relegation final. Croans started the game the better and were 1-03 to 0-04 up mid-way through the first half before a goal for Donie Shine. This opened a lead which Clann held onto for the game. Further goals were added by Ciaran Lennon, Cathal Callinan and Johnny Dunning as the lads ran out 4-15 to 1-11 winners meaning they retain Senior status for 2020. Best of luck to St. Croans in the Final. Our next fixture will be against Pearses in the O'Rourke Cup Semi-Final which will proceed after the Championship.
Clann: David Finneran, Damien Duff, Darra Pettit, Ronan Gavin, Oisin Lennon, Shane Pettit, Cathal Duignan, Graham Pettit, Cathal Shine, David Connaughton, Cathal Callinan, Emmet Kenny, Sea Henry, Donie Shine, Ciaran Lennon.
U.16 UpdateClann na nGael 6-21 0-03 St. Kieran’s
Clann na nGael’s Westside Dental sponsored under-16 team got back to winning ways after last week’s disappointing defeat to Pearses when they had a good win over St. Kieran’s at Fuerty on Friday evening last.
The Clann lads settled well with three early points, and goals from Conor Ryan and John Shine put them in a strong position midway through the first half. Further goals from Conor O’Reilly and John Shine helped them to a 4-6 to 0-1 interval lead.
Clann had the aid of a strong breeze in the second half and continued to apply pressure on the St. Kieran’s goal. A brace of goals from Thomas O’Neill and a succession of points helped them to a convincing win.
This was a good all-round performance from Clann, built on a solid display from the defence. Shane and Luke Gavin and Tom Lennon were all in excellent form in the half-back line, and behind them Michael Harrington was very sound at full-back with great support from Eoin Connaughton and Ollie Hynes in the corners. Neil Hannon brought off some fine saves in goal. Clann’s last fixture in the league stages of the championship is against Boyle on Friday night next in Johnstown at 7 p.m.
Team: N. Hannon; E. Connaughton, M. Harrington, O. Hynes; S. Gavin, T. Lennon, L. Gavin; A. McManus, I. Harney; O. O’ Flaherty, C. O’Reilly, C. Ryan; T. O’Neill, J. Shine, G. Mulvihill.
