Na Fianna GAA Football Club notes 20th Feb

Na Fianna Minor Footballers got this year’s playing campaign underway for the club with a very emphatic win over Rhode Og in Round 1 of the Minor Football League last Sunday morning in Geashill on a scoreline of 4-17 to 1-02. This being the first outing of the year both sides were slow to get going and it was Rhode who opened up an early lead of 1-01 to 0-02. This proved to be the catalyst that spurned Na Fianna into action as they dispatched goals from Niall Dempsey, Aaron Pierce and Jason Dunne along with 7 points all unanswered to build up a comprehensive half time lead of 3-09 to 1-01. With the game now over as a contest it was always going to be difficult for Na Fianna to keep going with the same momentum but still managed to add on another 8 points split either side of the final goal scored by Eric Martin who caught a knock down from a throw ball just outside the box to dispatch the ball to the net. Rhode put over a free in the final minute for their only score of the half.
NA FIANNA: Adam Kinahan, Sean Murphy, Mikey Keogh, Dean Pierce, Fergus Flood, Declan Byrne, Ben Ridgeway (0-01), Richie Reynolds (0-02), Eric Dolan (0-02), Ronan Crombie (0-02), Niall Dempsey (1-07), Eric Martin (1-00), Mikey Pender (0-02), Jason Dunne (1-01), Aaron Pierce (1-00).
SUBS: Kevin Beirne (for Ben Ridgeway), Fintan Pierce (for Eric Dolan), Ben Dunne (for Aaron Pierce).
