Played under very wet conditions in the banks last night our Minor side could have done better in this opening league match. Although they had a contested "goal" ruled out in the opening half, Naomh Mhuire still went in all square at half time. Naomh Conaill, led by All-Ireland Vocational school captain and senior player John O Malley then raced into a 7 point lead in the second half. A Darragh White Goal pulled things back but Naomh Mhuire had too many wides which you just don't get away with at this level. The display was spirited and Naomh Conaill knew they were in a game alright but finishing off great passages of play with scores was again the difference.
The game was played in very poor conditions and although we are well past the stage of being simply content to have the big Clubs like Naomh Conaill play us in Division 1.....it was a game that could have been won and knowing this group of lads...it will make them more determined in their next match away to St Naul's. Heads up and march on.
