The Dunnes Bar D2 League – Drumreilly were the visitors to Annaduff on Saturday evening last. As the Annaduff lads continue their unbeaten form in 2018. It was Kenny Cox who got the score board going inside the first min of play. Drumreilly converted a point from a 45 and another from play. The sides remained fairly even throughout the first half with points from Kenny, Ronan McCormack, Alan Glancy and Conor Reynolds to leave half time score  Annaduff 0-7 to Drumreilly 0-7. Ray Cox came in for the start of the second half with a point converted from Annaduff winning the ball from the throw in. Three minute’s in Drumreilly got a goal to put them 2 points ahead but this lead was soon put to bed with a point from Seamus Mulvhill a point from a free by Sean Duignan and a point from play for Kenny. Whilst Annaduff were the better team in the second half, they were unfortunate with some missed goal opportunity’s. In the 56th min Sean Mc got a point from play after coming in for Seamus. The 59 min Colm Cox who had only just been subbed for Alan buried a goal from one on one with the Drumreilly keeper that was the end of Drumreillys hope of any result. Kenny and Dillon finished the Annaduff business side with a point a piece.

Some good passing from our kick out got the ball to Darren on the wing who kicked a great pass into Senan who caught it on the run and popped it over for a point. Senan then won the kick out and lobbed the keeper for a goal. Momentum was with Annaduff Patrick caught the ball in midfield carried it forward before kicking a great long range point and Darren added another goal. Senan got the last point after some great interplay with Eoghan. Liam had another excellent match in goal making four first-half saves and coming out of goal early to clear dangerous balls. He was assisted by some great defending. Declan, Eamon and Jack were unlucky not to score goals with good saves and goal lines clearances by the Gaels. Full-time Annaduff 4.06-Allen Gaels 2.02.

Dunnes Bar Division 2 – Our D2 lads got their league off to the perfect start for the first round of the year on Sunday last away to Glencar-Manor.

The Glencar-Manor men seem to get off to the better start getting a goal in the 4th minute, Sean D followed with a free to point and got Annaduff on the scoresheet. The Annaduff lads from the 10 min mark did really take control of the game with 2 points from Owen R, one from Jason, Sean D and Michael. A high ball lobbed in by Johnny O C with Michael and Jason under it on the goal it found its way past the keeper to leave a Halftime score of Annaduff 1-06 to Glencar-Manor 1-1. Eoin Gill got Annaduffs scoreboard going in the second half with a point in the 9th min, followed by another from Sean Q, Manor did close the gap with a goal in the 15th min, but our lads kept plugging away with a point from a free by Sean Q and from play with Eoin G.

Annaduff dominated the first 15 minutes. Scoring goals through Nathan and points through Darren two from play and free and Senan from play. Drumkeeran again started to get a more control of the ball and it was in this period that the team worked really hard all over the field contesting every ball. Eamon, Caolan Patrick, Oisin Molloy and Hannon pressurised the backs, Mel had a great battle in midfield. Eoghan, Kyle, Josh and Oran worked really hard in defence making some great tackles and interceptions. Liam came off his line a number of times to clear up balls kicked over the top of the backs. At the end of the match, Darren and Senan added a pointed free each. In fairness to Drumkeeran, the final score does not reflect the work that they put in. They were unlucky to meet Annaduff when they put in their best team performance so far this year. Final score Annaduff 4.10-0.05 Drumkeeran.
Team – Liam McNamee, Eoghan Ridge, Kyle Russell, Oran Beirne, Mel Fitzpatrick, Josh Gill, Patrick Beirne, Darren Cox (0-6) Oisin Hannon, Caolan Newton, Senan Mooney (0-3) Eamonn Healy, Oisin Molloy and Nathan Cox (4-1)
