Naomh Mhuire faced the long trip to Bundoran on Sunday morning for their div 1 league game against Bundoran. With both teams having won 2 of their opening three league games it was always going to be a close game and so it proved. Naomh Mhuire started extremely well and raced into an early 2 point lead with some great running of the ball. They also hit the crossbar and were denied another goal chance by the bundoran keeper. Bundoran 1st score was a goal from their big midfielder and they then got a point. Naomh Mhuire looked dangerous in attack and kept the scoreboard ticking over with good play from the full-forward line and good support play from Hugh Boyle, Jamie Boyle, Patrick Rodgers and also Sean Burns who never stopped running all game. The half-time score was Bundoran 1-07 to Naomh Mhuire 0-10 points after some great scores from both teams. The 2nd half was nip and tuck until the impressive james ferry scored a goal to give Naomh Mhuire the lead. However Bundoran responded with a goal of their own. Bundoran then got a penalty that seemed to be well outside the box to go 5 points clear. Naomh Mhuire then got another goal from Ferry again to get Naomh Mhuire back in the game. Bundoran then stretched their lead out to 4 points with 5 minutes remaining. Naomh Mhuire pushed hard and got 2 great scores from Jamie Boyle and a 45 from Sean mc Cafferty to leave 2 points in it with only a couple of mins left. Naomh Mhuire then won another free which drifted just wide. With the game in injury time, Naomh Mhuire won another kick-out and another free-kick. The ball was played in high and was punched goalwards by a Naomh Mhuire forward but just missed the far post. Overall, a good sporting game which was well refereed by Liam Browne. Naomh Mhuire had a good team display with Sean Burns, James Ferry and Sean mc Cafferty excellent throughout. On another day, Naomh Mhuire could easily have come away with the spoils and they nearly stole the points at the end. They played until the final whistle which is a good quality this team have.
