Allen Gaels GAA Club Notes 21/05/2018

Dunnes Bar Division 2 – We had 5 points to spare over Kiltubrid on Saturday evening played in Kiltubrid on a scoreline of 2-09 to 1-07. Two early points from play from Nicholas Moore settled us down before James Gill pointed a free for the home side on 9 minutes. Caleb Duffy found the net on 14 minutes with a great finish, quickly followed by another point from play from Nicholas and a second goal in the 18th minute from James Flynn after a good team move left us in control. Emmet Mahon & James Gill pointed frees for Kiltubrid in the 25th & 28th minutes before a soft penalty call brought the home side back into contention as Keelan McKeon finished to the bottom corner. Nicholas added a free in injury time to leave the score at the break 2-04 to 1-03. James Flynn from play & another free from Nicholas Moore extended the lead in the opening 5 minutes of the second period. James Gill pointed a free in the 36th minute before Ciaran Walsh & Nicholas both found the range from play to leave 7 points between the sides entering the final quarter.  Mickey Earley struck Kiltubrid’s only score from play in the 47th minute and James Flynn replied immediately after great work by Martin Raftery. Emmet Mahon & James Gill added 2 frees in the closing minutes to leave the final score 2-09 to 1-07. Well done to Michael McGovern who performed well in goals on the night. Our scorers were:  Nicholas Moore 0-06; James Flynn 1-02; Caleb Duffy 1-00; Ciaran Walsh 0-01.
