Naomh Éanna senior football reserves 1.7 Gort na Mona 5.7
Naomh Éanna had a disappointing visit to Gort Na Mona on Sunday, with another changes squad Naomh Éanna were beaten by 4 goals. However, despite the scoreline there were several positives to be taken from the game.
At half time the score was Gort na Mona 2.1 Naomh Éanna 1.3. At the start of the second half Naomh Éanna scored a great goal from Minor player Owen Kinnear but for some unknown reason the referee only awarded a point. This seemed to unsettle Naomh Éanna, and their discipline went. The referee started handing out yellow cards and unfortunately for us we lost 2 players. With 2 additional players Gort na Mona pushed on and won the game with a bit to spare.
Hopefully the injury to Gerard Corrigan is not serious and congratulations to Ciaran Thompson making his debut for the senior reserves.
The team was – Kevin Parkes, Domo Millar, Gerard Corrigan, Ciaran Hughes, Ciaran Thompson, Eoghan O Neill, Stephen McFall (0.3), Brian Flannigan, Stephen Dowds, Cormac Jennings, Mark Mooney, Conor Hughes (0.2), Owen Kinnear (0.1), Chris Doyle, Marty Quinn (1.1), subs Daire Woods, Patsy Dorrian, Pierce McFall.
Naomh Éanna Senior football team 0.6 Gort na Mona 1.11
Sundays match v Gort Na Mona did not have a happy ending. Despite playing relatively well in the first half Naomh Éanna collapsed in the second half and only scored one point. At half time Gort were leading 1.3 to 0.5 and Naomh Éanna had only themselves to blame for being behind, several chances were squandered and with a bit of luck should have been ahead by 3 or 4 points. The 2nd half was totally different. Once Gort got 3 ahead their confidence lifted and they scored points from well out the field. Naomh Éanna struggled all over the pitch, and the few chances they did create they were unable to convert them into scores.
The team was – P Flood, Colm McGowan, Damian Gault, Fintan Eastwood, Conor Maxwell, Kevin Hillen, Philly Curann, Ruairi Scott (0.1), Kristan Healy, James MacAuley (0.2), Donal Walsh, Peter Healy, Conall Scott (0.1), Rian Gillan (0.1), Daniel Kennedy (0.1), subs Eoin McNulty, Mark Owens
