An important and impressive away league win for the Seniors yesterday evening (05/10/13) in a hard fought, physical match which saw 3 of the home side red carded. Termon, sitting second in the league,were very lucky to go in at half time with a one point lead as Naomh Muire were the better side in the first half playing some smart possession football at pace. The lads led most of the first half until Termon got a scrappy goal against the run of play.
The second half saw Termon come out looking for a win that would move them within league leaders Glenswilly and they showed their strength by building up a three point lead after ten minutes. However Shaun the Yank Boyle chipped County reserve keeper Michael Boyle for a goal and followed up with a point to put the lads ahead. It was at this point that Naomh Muire took the game by the scruff of the neck and although Termon tried to muscle their way out of the Naomh Muire comeback, former County player Sean O'Donnell was red carded for Termon for consistent dangerous play.
This was two very important points and with two league games at home v Buncrana and Glenswilly....the lads will be targeting maximum points. It is still technically possible to make a promotion play-off and 4 points in the last two league games would be a great run-in. Credit to each and every player who played tonight and of course to Danny and his backroom team and whereas this is a great result.....the three remaining games including next weeks final are all HUGE games....what a great season end this can be. Tonight's result was achieved without regulars Paul the Yank, Owenie Mc Garvey and Jack O'Brien.
We will certainly not forget another outstanding result by the Reserves tonight. Trailing by 4 points against a strong and experienced Termon side. ....the young lads battled back and played some great attacking football and won by four points. With several experienced players like Brian Feda, Darren Gallagher, Séamus Ferry steadying the ship...the mainly young side are a credit to watch and they never believe they are beaten. In this reserve side are many who are developing into players who can then push on to the Senior squad and that is no doubt where many of them are heading. The success of the Reserves this year has now set a strong platform of talent coming through. Credit to Gary Boyle and his mentors.
