Ballycomoyle 1-5 Multyfarnham 3-12
Last Sunday 16th March our Junior B team travelled and were victorious against Ballycomoyle in our second outing in division 7A. A strong team was fielded and we started brilliantly with some well worked scores through Lee Casserly, Paul Smith and Ger Feerick. The middle of the park saw the inexperienced duo of Jason Tighe and Ian McGovern more than hold their own against a tougher, older Ballycomoyle pair. Keith Read was proving a handful to the opposition defence and Paul Smith, Damien Grifferty and James Keary were pushing forward from the halfback line. Leo Blake had his hands full with the Bally full forward however he was up to the task of marshalling the Ballycomoyle man.
At the break the game was tied 0-5 to 1-2, which was thanks to a fortuitous goal from a long ball for Ballycomoyle. The second period started with the home team going ahead with a well struck point before Multy took hold of the game. Johnny Orme and Ger Feerick started to get things motoring around the middle of the park and the points then started to flow. Feerick chipped in with four and debutant Kim Williams scored two goals to put the game beyond a doubt. Another goal from substitute Paul Brannigan stretched the lead out and further points from Paul Smith, Johnny Orme, Gary Guilfoyle, Keith Read and Ian McGovern stretched Multy’s lead out in the end.
Overall it was a decent performance with some good scores taken and as usual the defence worked hard but were very effective. Next Sunday we are scheduled to play Moate All Whites in Division 3 away in Moate at 3pm.
Training continues Wednesday and Friday in Multy.
The Under 14’s were out as well last Sunday week against St Joseph’s/Kilbeggan in Multy. The game was a tight affair with the away lucky to come out victorious by a single point 5-4 to 4-8. It was an all wound great team performance with young lads battling hard for the win after being down by nine points at half time.
Congratulations to Jamie Coffey and Alan McDonnell who were selected to play for the county Under 13’s in football and hurling.
