Allen Gaels GAA Club Notes 10/04/2018

Dunnes Bar Division 2 – We played Carrigallen at home on Saturday evening and prevailed on a scoreline of 2-09 to 1-09 after a tough battle. For a second week we started slowly and trailed 0-04 to 0-01 after 12 minutes before a Ciaran Walsh penalty brought us level. Carrigallen had a penalty of their own on 19 minutes which was converted and left the half-time score 1-07 to 1-03 in favour of the visitors.  Carrigallen had the opening point after the break to open up a 5 point gap but on 37 minutes substitute Caleb Duffy crashed home a great goal to ignite a scoring burst and we hit a further 5 points in 10 minutes to a solitary reply from Carrigallen with Shane Beirne completing the scoring in injury time. Scorers were: Caleb Duffy 1-03; Ciaran Walsh 1-01; James Flynn 0-02; Martin Beirne 0-01; Shane Beirne 0-01; Diarmaid McKiernan 0-01. We travel to Kinlough next Sunday morning to play Melvin Gaels at 12noon so best of luck to the lads & the management team.
