Naomh Colmcille make it six from six at Castlefinn
Naomh Colmcille travelled to Castlefin for a top-of-the table clash against Robert Emmets without a number of regular first-team starters, and came away with an emphatic win on a 0-9 to 2-9 final scoreline.
The sizable away support got plenty of action on the pitch this time around, unlike their last trip to the venue for the 2011 promotion playoff-that-never-was against Burt. Mark Dowds scored his first free of the match after four minutes to give Naomh Colmcille the lead. Good play from Thomas McKinley gave Connor Grant a scoring opportunity but the Robert Emmets keeper was quickly off his line to clear the danger. A Mark Dowds free, after a foul on Ciaran Callaghan following good work from Shane McAteer, and a point from play from Thomas McKinley, gave the visitors a 0-0 to 0-3 lead.
The home side got their first point from a free in the 16th minute, before Thomas McKinley released Don Hegarty to race towards goal. Hegarty was fouled to create a penalty opportunity for Mark Dowds to get Naomh Colmcille’s first goal of the game. Mark Dowds, with a point from play, and a free from Robert Emmets left the scores at 0-2 to 1-4. Naomh Colmcille’s second goal came at the end of normal time in the first half, Thomas McKinley and Don Hegarty involved in giving Conor Grant the chance to finish with a shot low to the corner. Another Mark Dowds pointed free, and a similar score to the home team, both in stoppage time, left the half time score 0-3 to 2-5
Robert Emmets got the first score of the second half, their first score from play, in the 5th minute. Good work from Paul Friel and Don Hegarty lead to a foul on Hegarty, and Mark Dowds pointed the resultant free. Marty Callaghan was forced to pull off a fine save to keep out a Robert Emmets goal-bound effort, and another attack from the home side came to nothing following great pressure applied by Paul Friel.
The same player got one of the scores of the game in the 10th minute, in a move involving Andrew Clarke and Thomas McKinley, to make the score 0-4 to 2-7. The home side managed to up their game after this, and got the next 5 points of the match, including two frees, to reduce Naomh Colmcille’s lead to 4 points. However a point from play from Ciaran Callaghan at the end of normal time, a great block in defence by Padraig Carberry, and another point in stoppage time from Andrew Clarke, ensured that Naomh Colmcille emerged victorious on a final score line of 0-9 to 2-9.
The win maintained Naomh Colmcille’s perfect start to the league, and took them above Robert Emmets to the top of the table. The team excelled throughout the pitch, with Ryan and Thomas McKinley, Mark Dowds and Paul Friel among the stand-out performers, while the youngest members of the team, John Fullerton and Connor Grant deserve credit for excellent performances.
