Reserve Footballers beat Annaclone

The Reserve Footballers beat Annaclone at Dunavil in a closely contested affair, 1-13 to 1-11. In a nip and tuck opening quarter a Michael Harper goal gave An Riocht a 1-3 to 0-4 advantage but other chances went a begging and the visitors were on level terms by the twenty fifth minute and went on to take a 1-8 to 1-4 lead into the half time break. Their good form continued on the restart and they extended their lead out to six points; given the home teams previous wastefulness it looked too big a gap to claw back.

 

Then Ronan Foley pointed to signal the start of an uninterrupted eight-point spree headlined by the move of Michael Harper to the edge of the square and he won high ball and pointed on the turn three times in quick succession. A missed penalty denied An Riocht the opportunity to stretch their lead to a winning position and Annaclone pointed some twenty minutes after their last score to leave the result on a knife edge until Conor Morgan dispossessed a defender and set up Michael O’Rourke for the insurance score. That’s seven wins from seven starts as the league reaches the half way stage with our next match in Liatroim on 22nd May.

Team: Stephen Doran 0-2 (2f), Marc Rooney, Christopher Mulligan, Joe McCartan, Stephen McVeigh, Aidan O’Hanlon, Dane Mathews 0-1, Brian Rodgers, Michael Harper 1-3, Aidan McVeigh, Michael O’Rourke 0-3, Stephen McDowell 0-1, Sean McArdle, Brian Sloan, Ronan Foley 0-1.

Subs: Conor Morgan, Deaglan Morgan, Conor Cole 0-2.
