A one point victory for the lads today against a Glenfin side that came into the match sitting second in the league and having played Senior Championship football up to last week. They were led by current All-Star Frank McGlynn.
This was an important and much deserved win with Naomh Muire showing great determination and fight in coming back on four occasions. Glenfin...a team traditionally one who like to score goals....scored their three goals when Naomh Muire showed signs of dominating and whereas other sides would have dropped heads......the young Naomh Muire side showed a really positive attitude to come back and edge ahead again on each occasion. Both sides lined out without a regular midfielder each...with Owenie McGarvey unable to play and Stephen McDermott also injured.
Overall - Naomh Muire were the better side and the forwards total of 15 scores was important. The main difference however was a really good attitude from the entire team when things went against them today.
Once again full credit to team and management today....the season ahead looks really good with a showing like this.
In the earlier game the reserves had a great win. Another good performance from this young (and some not so young!) team. The final score was Naomh Muire 2-11 Glenfin 1-04.
