Na Fianna GAA Club Notes 29 May 2012
U16 FOOTBALL LEAGUE
Na Fianna U16 Footballers returned to winning ways as they easily saw off the challenge of Ballinamere / Durrow in Durrow in the final game of the group stage of the League last Monday week on a scoreline of 4-13 to 2-08 and in doing so leaving themselves in contention for a place in the knockout stage of the league. Na Fianna started brightly and midway through the first half they had put over their first 6 points but B/D were well in it having got through to score their first goal along with 2 points. Then came the decisive moment of the game when in a 5 min spell Na Fianna got in to score 3 goals from Colin McDermott (2) and Shane Dolan which put Na Fianna well ahead. Both sides added 2 points before the end of the half and so at the break Na Fianna had a comfortable lead of 3-08 to 1-04. B/D gave themselves hope of a comeback when straight from the re-start they got through to score their second goal and this was followed by a point. Na Fianna steadied themselves before hitting back with 2 points. Then 5 mins into the half Na Fianna sealed the win when James Lalor’s shot from over 30m out dipped in over the head of the keeper to the net for Na Fianna’s 4th goal. There would be no way back for B/D at this stage with the game now over as a contest and over the remaining minutes both sides further increased their tally with their final 3 points apiece.
