Dromahair were crowned champions of the Minor B Dolan Cup Championship on friday evening last in front of a large crowd in Pairc Sean Mc Diarmada with a scoreline of 1-14 to 1-11 over their near neighbours Drumkeerin..
A minutes silence was observed by everyone prior to start of game as a mark of respect to the Grandfather of Drumkeerin players Felim and Patrick Mc Hugh who died earlier that morning RIP.
Drumkeerin were first to put their name on the score board with points from Jamie Langan, Cathal Mc Cauley and Seamus Mc Nama respectively before Dromahair chalked their first point from Mark Kelly. Dromahair then registered three more unanswered points from Jamie Conlon and two from Niall Hopper.
With brilliant displays of football displayed by both teams there was some wasteful shooting with the ball going the wrong side of the uprights as both teams were evenly matched.
Both teams added another point each from Cathal Mc Cauley Drumkeerin and Jamie Conlon Dromahair.. Fergal Mc Morrow got the ball on the 45m line and sent in a brilliant high ball towards goalmouth and landed in the back of the net through the hands of the keeper. Dromahair added two more points from Rory Kelly and Jamie Conlon and Drumkeerin added three from Glen KavanÓgh and two from Patrick Mc Partlin which left the sides going in at half time with a scoreline of 1-7 to 0-7 in favour of Dromahair.
In the second half Cian ClintonÓgot his first point and Martin Clancy got two all from play before Drumkeerins gifted Jamie Langan and Patrick Mc Partlin scored a point each form play. Martin Clancy was fouled around midfield, then took a quick free to Jamie Conlon who sent a tremendous ball sailing over the bar. Marin Clancy scored another from play. Drumkeerin added two more points from James Gallagher and Cathal Mc Cauley while Dromahairs Killian Torsney and Cian Clinton added one each to keep them on top. JohnÓgallagher with about four minutes to go got a pass to put the ball in the back of the net for his side but it was not enough as the final scoreline of 1-14 to 1-11 left Dromahair worthy winners. The cup was presented to the winning caption Jamie Conlon by Greta O”Neill daughter of the Late Ned Dolan in whose honor the cup is named after.
