Na Fianna Minor Footballers made it 2 wins out of 2 in the Minor League last Sunday morning with a comfortable win over Edenderry in Edenderry on a scoreline of 3-11 to 1-05. Edenderry were without their St Mary’s School contingent started brightly and after 20 mins were tied at 4 points apiece but 3 late points edged Na Fianna ahead at the break 0-07 to 0-04. Within moments of the re-start Na Fianna had doubled their lead first with a point and from the resultant kickout Declan Byrne won the ball and sent in a shot to Richie Reynolds in the square who shot across goal to the net for the opening goal. By the midpoint of the half Edenderry had hit back with 1-01 but this would prove to be their final scores and as close as they would get as Na Fianna eased home. Ben Dunne who had just been introduced as a sub put his name on the scoresheet when his shot from about 30m out chipped the keeper in to the net. Another point followed before Na Fianna sealed the win with their 3rd goal with 3 mins left when Richie Reynolds sent the ball in from midfield which landed in front of Niall Dempsey who pulled on the ball to blast it to the net. Fintan Pierce completed the scoring with the final point a minute later.
