The reserves Buncrana fought out an entertaining, helter skelter intermediate reserve championship quarter final
As in the senior game Aodh Ruadh had to come back from a ropey start and went into the closing stages leading by a point only for Buncrana to get a late leveler. Best for Aodh Ruadh were Paddy Gillespie, Niall Murray,f Dermot Slevin and Anthony Coughlan.
The U-16s maintained their 100 percent start to the season with a 6-15 to 0-2 victory over Killybegs last Friday night. It was one of those games where Aodh Ruadh were very dominant and every man in white and green who featured offered up a good account of themselves.
The U-12s defeated Four Masters 6-11 to 1-0 in their final home game of the league campaign. It was a solid performance from the homesters who played well throughout and dealt well with the hot conditions.
An early goal from John Patton set down a marker and although Four Masters also hit the net early Aodh Ruadh dominated the game from there on. A lot of credit for the victory has to go to the half forward line where Odhran McGarrigle and Eoin Doherty showed a massive work rate.
Senan Rooney and Shane Gillespie in midfield were dominant and Gillespie’s outing was gilded by two well-taken goals. Once again there were fine displays from Mark McGlynn and Tiarnan Dolan, while elsewhere Harry Howarth was very busy in attack and Ryan McDonald kept the house safe and sound.
In the annual Mick Shannon U-10 tournament on Saturday. The senior competition Aodh Ruadh faced Glencar Manorhamilton in the first game. This was a hotly fancied Glencar team with the keen managerial expertise of Sham-In-Exile Dee Dee Drummond on board the Ernesiders. And they were right to, as a ding dong battle of the game was tied in the closing moment only for Cian Rooney to goal in the last minutes to secure a 4-3 to 3-3 for Ballyshannon. The second game against Erne Gaels was another tight fought contest, this time Aodh Ruadh emerged four point winners to set up a final against Saint Molaise Gaels, of Grange.
The Sligo outfit had shown themselves to be an extremely skilful outfit across the course of the day and the first half of the final was toe-to-toe stuff with the sides level at half time, 2-4 apiece.
Grange’s greater attacking threat told in the second half though as they ran in an unanswered 2-1 to claim the Mick Shannon trophy.
For Aodh Ruadh Calum Doherty-Craig was outstanding in defence throughout the day. Ryan Keenaghan was another who caught the eye. He played back in the first two games and was transferred up front for the final where he was unfortunate to see two efforts come back off the woodwork.
Elsewhere Kyle McCaffrey in midfield and Kyle Murray in defence covered a hell of a lot of ground. Colm McGloin played corner back throughout and gave a number of great defensive performances. Daragh Gallagher was strong and forceful at the back. Daragh Dolan ran the game from midfield and Oisín Daly was excellent in attack.
In the junior competition Aodh Ruadh’s first game was close fought encounter against Glencar Manorhamilton which the homesters won by a goal.
The second league game was a nip and tuck affair with the men from Grange with the Gaels taking the win by a point. Grange and Aodh Ruadh met again in the final. This time Aodh Ruadh reversed the result winning by a point.
The U-8s are travelling to Belleek this Friday, 12th July for a blitz against Erne Gaels. The games throw in at 6.30pm and we are asking parents to provide transport directly to the game.
Aodh Ruadh lost out in the first round of the senior championship to Setanta on a scoreline of 1-17 to 0-9. It was a below par performance from Ballyshannon, but a valuable learning experience for the outing in the championship.
