Naomh Muire produced a good second half display to earn both points in this Southern Division 2 Under 14 match.
Naomh Bríd started the first half playing with the wind and looked very impressive, with Paul Diver and Ryan Brogan causing trouble to the Naomh Muire backline. Daniel Ward was playing well in midfield for Naomh Muire. It was Brogan and Ward who exchanged two points each that got the scoring started. Seán Robinson got another for Naomh Bríd but Ward again cancelled this out on the 16th minute. Naomh Bríd then took control of the game and added on 5 points before half time, 2 from the impressive Brogan, 2 from Sean Maher and one from Aaron Walsh. Naomh Bríd went in at half time with a healthy lead of 5 points.
Naomh Muire were slow to get started with the wind and only for two point blank saves from Tuathal Lunny in goals the game could have drifted away from them. However encouraged by the saves, the patiently played their game, and Joey Gillespie got their opening point of the second half. Daniel ward then added another, before he made another strong run into the heart of the Naomh Bríd defence and despite losing control of the ball he managed to get his boot to it and slot it into the net. This left the sides level and it was Naomh Muire who pushed on, and further scores from Daniel Ward(2), Declan McCready, Joey Gillespie and Ronan McDevitt gave them a five point victory.
Good performances from Tuathal, Daniel, Bernard Boyle, Ronan McDevitt and Joey Gillespie. Naomh Brid were well served by Ciaran McGrory, Ryan Brogan, and Sean Maher.
