Naomh Muire recorded another home win yesterday evening (23/07/2011) when they overcame Downings by eight points. Played on a lovely evening in Mullach Dearg the home team had plenty of possession from early on but the score remained tight as the number of wides began to mount. In what was a tough and indeed tense match the teams went in at half time with just three points seperating them:
HT: Naomh Muire 0-05 Downings 0-02.
The second half started like the first with sides swapping scores and again Naomh Mhuire playing well on approach play but not finding the scores. With ten minutes left the scores remained with only two points apart before a purlple patch of scores by Naomh Muire and superior fitness saw 1-5 scored in 8 minutes.
That was enough to finish off the visitors and see the lads secure yet another two points. A win is a win and an 8 point win against a team as tigerish as Na Dunaibh is still a good result.
