Na Fianna GAA Club Notes


Na Fianna U14 Footballers suffered their first defeat of the Championship against Edenderry in Edenderry last

Monday in their Round 2 encounter on a scoreline of 5-16 to 2-09. An understrenght Na Fianna side started the

game brightly as they opened the scoring with the first 2 points before Edenderry got up and running by putting

over their first 5 points in a row by the mid point of the half. The sides then exchanged 2 points apiece before

Edenderry struck for their first goal in the final min directly from a free near the 45m line.which left Edenderry

leading at the break by 1-07 to 0-04. Na Fianna clawed back 3 points at the start of the second half but this was

wiped out as Edenderry got in to score their second goal on 3 mins and over the next 10 mins Edenderry streched

clear scoring 1-04 to 2 points. Na Fianna did give themselves hope of a recovery midway through the half when sub

Aidan Pierce picked up the ball in the square and turned before blasting it past the keeper to the net for their

first goal but this was again wiped out 2 mins later when Edenderry were awarded a penalty for a footblock which

they dispatched to the net and they wrapped it up by completing their tally with 1-04 over the nxt 10 mins. Na

Fianna did have the consolation of being awarded a penalty in the last min when Joey Kinahan was brought down in

the square and he stepped up to take it which he buried it in the net for Na Fianna’s second goal.
