Dramatic Win For Scoil Niocláis !


Match Reporter/Corner Forward

Cathal Kenny

On Tuesday the 28th of September, Scoil Niocláis played a football match in Douglas against Upper Glanmire. There was great excitement in the team because we knew this was going to tough. The game was delayed because it was raining heavily and Glanmire thought they hadn’t enough jerseys. They didn’t check but luckily they had enough. Mr Moynihan made a tactical change by putting Sam Hanley centre forward and Ross Howell in full. The captain was Conor Nash.

The match got under way and we were on top. It was very tight at the start. Brian Flahive and Aaron Moynihan dominated midfield and Colm Coakley, Sean Grace, Christian Begley, Kevin Lee, Conor Nash and Daniel Quinlan were good at the back. Adam Idah, Mark Butler, Sam Hanley, David Harrington, Ross Howell and Andrew O’ Connell were doing up front. I am not forgetting the outstanding Cian Allen in goal.

It was a very dramatic ending with only 2 points the margin at the end. Glanmire got a scorable chance and went for goal but missed. In the build-up to the free, Ross Howell was punched and the Glanmire player was sent off. It was so tight at the end Mr Moynihan and Mr O‘Donovan only making two substitutions being Cathal Kenny and Adam Coleman. It was a great game and a deserved, well-earned 3rd victory. We may have to meat these boys again!

However, we have now to concentrate on beating Carrignavar on next Tuesday 5th October at home in Douglas GAA. Roll on Carrignavar.
