Multy GAA Under 14’s
Multyfarnham 2-10
Tyrrellspass 2-8

Multy U14’s secured the second final appearance of the year for the club with a hard fought victory over a tough and talented Tyrrellspass team, in what was a very entertaining semi final clash in Milltown.
A very strong wind made this a typical game of two half’s with Tyrrellspass enjoying the advantage in the first. Multy had to play into the breeze but that did not stop them from striking first with Brendan McCarthy getting off the mark by sticking the ball in the back of the net. ‘Pass look troubled but they settled themselves and started their response. Led by a very strong midfield and a fast,skilful forward-line, they tried valiantly to put the game beyond a doubt before half-time. Twice they put the ball in the back of the Multy net which could have been more but for the brilliant goal keeping by Evan Hales. He repeatedly came to the rescue with some fine saves to keep his team within shouting distance.

The breeze was a real advantage to ‘Pass but they did not bank on a fullback line of Laurence Monaghan, Feichin Brennan and Adam Bates. The Multy lads had a difficult time with their opponents but they handled themselves very well. Alan McDonnell, Eric Molloy and Jack Moran were excellent at carrying ball out of the back line and linking up with the strong midfield pair of Aaron Whelan and Noel Bardon. Jamie Coffey, Ciaran Bawle and Colin Pantry had a very difficult time in the first half however they all got back and helped out in defence. Brendan McCarthy, Josh Lee and Cian O’Fiach all played their part in trying to keep the score board ticking over while at the same time making nothing easy for the opposition defenders.

While Tyrrellspass enjoyed the best of it in the first, a score line of 2-7 to 1-3 at half-time is nothing really at this grade. A couple of subs were brought on and with the wind at their backs Multyfarnham set about chasing after Tyrrellspass. Normally at this level goals are in the abundance and it is a credit to the skill level displayed by the goalkeepers for both sides that the amount of goals was kept so low. Both keepers played their part by pulling off some very fine saves to leave this game very tight for the majority of the second half. As was always going to happen Multy had chipped over some excellent points with Noel Bardon, Aaron Whelan, Ciaran Bawle and Cian O’Fiach all getting involved and with just two points between them Multy went looking for a goal.

However time after time as they broke through they were denied by the pass goalkeeper.
Substitutions can win games though and with the introduction of Andrew Hogan at midfield, Luke Nangle in the forwards and Eoghan Kelly in defence, Multyfarnham’s superiority began to shine through. Nangle was proving to be a nightmare to the ‘Pass defenders with his link playing bringing the power house that is Andrew Hogan into play. Still though the Tyrrellspass defence showed their resilience by withholding the Multy tide. With a steady ship at the back Laurence Monaghan felt comfortable in pushing forward and when he fielded beautifully from a ‘Pass kick out he burst forward with Hogan running support on his shoulder. Monaghan drew the defender and passed inside to Hogan who, with seemingly a lot of work still to do, unleashed a blistering shot to the top corner that nearly burst the back of the net.
The lead was back with Multy again but they had to withhold a determined fight back from Tyrrellspass however it was not to be for the Senior club side. The final whistle came and Multy were through to the final. This was an incredible hard fought and resilient victory over a very good and well trained Tyrrellspass team who are a credit to themselves, their coaches and their club.
For Multy a second final appearance in a row at this grade now awaits, details of which will soon be forthcoming.
Panel: Noel Barden (0-1), Ciaran Bawle(0-2),Bernard Cox, Christopher Feerick, Andrew Hogan (1-1), Eoghan Kelly, Brendan McCarthy (1-0), Eric Molloy, Jack Moran, Luke Nangle(0-1), Colin Pantrey, Aaron Whelan(0-3), Adam Bates, Jamie Coffey, Patrick Davitt, Evan Hales, Josh Lee, Alan McDonnell, Lolly Monaghan, Paul Mulligan, Cian O’Fiach(0-2), Eoin Walsh, Fechin Brennan.

Multyfarnham GAA Notes

Junior Championship Round 8

Multyfarnham 0-11
Milltown 1-8

Saturday evening in Kinnegad saw Multy and Miltown battle it out in a physically draining game of football, in the last round of the group stage of the Westmeath Junior championship. Neither the Intermediate or Senior championships expect clubs to play eight games to get to knock out football yet somehow it is occurs in the Junior.
The game itself was a nervous affair, both sides took a long time to settle. Neither team showed any sign of their true ability or potential yet Milltown managed to find their range early and clocked up a couple of points which led to Multy chasing the lead for the rest of the opening period. Ciaran McCabe made an absolutely fantastic save to keep Multy in it when the Milltown full forward broke through on goal.
Danny Loughrey was impressive in attack but it was his full forward partner Chris Cannon who scored the best point of the half for the Maroon men, with a sweet strike off his left boot. As usual our defence were working heroically with Leo Blake, Paul Smith and Paul Moran battling hard.

The second half opened up a bit more and Loughrey managed to tag a few impressive scores alongside a sweet kicked sideline strike from Emmett Feerick. Noel Kiernan was finding his range from the deadball and Rory Boyce and Ronan Wallace were taking charge in the half back lines. Milltown gave themselves a job to do when they went a man down and indeed it looked like Multy would cruise to the finish line. Jason Tighe and Enda Carter were beginning to get on top of Summers and McLoughlin for Milltown, who were very impressive all day. Ciaran Madden kicked a lovely point off his right and it looked as if we were heading for the win. David Wallace came off the bench and his running was starting to torture the Milltown defence. Indeed he came very close to finishing off the game when he broke through on goal but he dragged his low hard struck shot agonisingly to the left of the post.

The last few seconds of the game saw Multy sitting on a three point lead with scores from Loughrey and Kiernan but, with victory within our grasp, the gods of luck and fortune dealt us a horrible turn when Summers won the ball for Milltown in midfield and belted the ball towards goal. Somehow our defence had gone missing and the ball fell appetisingly for a Milltown man who duly despatched it to the back of the net. Of course the referee blew the whistle on the kickout without giving either side a chance to win it but in the end we were the happier side.

Milltown are a good team and a credit to their club and area, it is unfortunate that their season is over.

It is the first time in a long, long time that we have reached this stage in the championship. Credit must go to the players who have worked hard so far, however at the end of the day it means nothing unless we go further. Every player is expected down to put in the maximum effort over the next few weeks. Everybody who supports the club also needs to do everything that they can do. We need the whole club pulling together.

Underage

There are a number of fixtures for the underage in the coming weeks. On Wednesday the Under 12s play St Lomans in Multy, this is the first game for new mentors Bilial Moran and Andrew McCormack, we would appreciate if all parents could make a special effort to cooperate with the lads in their breaking-in period. On Thursday the Under 14s are playing Tyrrellspass in Multy in Round 4 of the Championship, Joe Kelly and the rest of the mentors would love to see a big support out for the young lads as they attempt to replicate the adult teams accomplishments. On Wednesday 3rd Sept the Under 12s face the long trip down to Garrycastle for round 4 of the league. Any support is always needed and if anybody wants to help out with the next generation they are always welcome.
