Club Notes - 30th JulySenior Football
The Senior team cruised into the Championship semi final after a 0-17 to 0-5 victory over the Round Towers at Ruislip on Sunday. The Gaels didn’t have it all their own way in the first half, failing to register a score in the opening fifteen minutes against a fired up Towers.
Cork man James O’Connell opened the scoring with Dave O’Brien, Darragh Kinnevy, and Tommy Moriarty adding further points. The move of the half involved seven players with the fast improving Chris Maroney knocking over a fine point and the Gaels with a six point half time lead.In the second half it was a case of grinding down the opposition and knock the stuffing out of them with Kinnevy and Maroney showing in front every time.
In defence Paddy Callaghan and Shaun Campbell stood out with Stephen Boyle doing a good job cancelling out Towers danger man O’Donoghue. Kinnevy, Maroney and O’Brien worked hard up front and winning plenty of frees against an over worked Towers rearguard.Although not one of the Gaels better performances it was workmanlike and the management will be happy to be in the semi’s come September even if they don’t show it.
Scorers D Kinnevy 0-6,3f, D O’Brien 0-5f, C Maroney, T Moriarty, B O’Mahony, J O’Connell, G Kane and JP Boyle all 0-1.
Congrats to the Gaels lads who were in the Victorious London Minor team who retained the Inter Continental Cup after defeating New York by a score line of 2-14 to 3-6.
