With the Senior Championship three weeks away and the opening match against Naomh Conaill being the opener.....every match now is as much about performance as it is result. Therefore it was good to see both... a strong performance and a win away to Glenfin this evening. Strengthened by the return of Adi O Gara, Shaun the Yank and Owen Grant from the USA....the lads weathered an early Glenfin dominance to go in at half-time with a 5 point lead. The second half saw Glenfin reduce the deficit to 2 points and it was impressive watching Naomh Muire then take control of the match and loading on the scores which their possession deserved. Leaving Glenfin with victory is seldom easy and this was a good performance against a fellow Senior Championship side. Thomas Duffy made his debut in goals and keeping a clean sheet against Glenfin together with getting the kick outs together was a highlight.
The reserves playing with the bare 15 found the home side in strong form but great credit to the lads for giving it their all and although beaten, showed plenty to be proud of.
Overall a good night by the Finn.
