CLG BnaG 1-7 Aodh Ruadh 1-14
The Seniors unbeaten run came to an end today against an ultra defensive Aodh Ruadh. Na Galloglaigh started brightly with Cathal Mc Gettigan having a goal chance early on and then scoring a free but this was to be the only time the boys were in the lead. Kieran Sheridan was black carded after 13 minutes with the boys 0-3 to 0-1 down which seen Dylan Hegartys introduced in his place. The boys struggled to make it stick up front against a very defensive outfit who brought a lot of numbers back, but they got scores from Kane Barrett, Cathal McGettigan and Christopher Barrett to leave the half time score 0-4 to 0-7. Aodh Ruadh scored immediately after the restart but Na Galloglaigh got a boost after a great catch by Darragh Black saw him start a move involving Kyle Black, and Kane Barrett before Dylan Hegarty stuck it in the back of the net to put just one between the sides.There was a huge turning point moments later when another sweeping move saw Tj Evesson clean through but unfortunately his effort came back off the post and wide, had this gone in it could have been a different game. Disaster struck halfway through the second half when Aodh Ruadh were awarded and scored a penalty, which put them 6 clear, 1-4 to 1-10. Kyle Black had another good goal chance well saved but Aodh Ruadh were very clinical in attack and caused bother each time they came forward. Yet another top drawer save prevented Cathal McGettigan getting a late score while Aodh Ruadh kept getting their scores a little easier at the other end. The very defensive Aodh Ruadh tackled very well and made life difficult for our forwards and in the end up the lads had no answer. Pauric Curley added a late point to make the full time score 1-7 to 1-14. Next up is a derby game against Downings in which the lads will be hoping to get back to winning ways.
Team: Sean Gallagher, Kieran Sheridan, Sean Black, Kieran Mc Laughlin, Jonny Logue, Enda McHugh, TJ Evesson, Luc O Bairead, Joey Cullen, Darragh Black, Christopher Barrett (0-1), Kyle Black (0-1), Kane Barrett (0-1), Cathal McGettigan (0-3), Pauric Curley (0-1).
