Sean MacCumhaills

The third team travelled to Glenfin for their last game of the season in Division 5. An experimental side saw Anthony Reggie Conaghan and young Dougie calling the shots on the line. MacCumhaills lined out with experience up the middle of the park and speed on the wings. Both teams exchanged fine scores with Michael Duignan the goal that us the half time lead of 1-4 to 0-5. Straight after the restart MacCumhaills scored another goal by P Doherty. Glenfin never gave up and came back into the game with several points and a converted penalty by Frank Ward. It was a tense finale to the game as Glenfin

looked to equalise but MacCumhaills were the eventual winners 2-13 to 2-9.

Both teams deserve great credit for serving up a highly entertaining match which was keenly contested right to the final whistle. The first half was point for point , with Dungloe just edging ahead at half time. The atmosphere was electric with both sets of supporters very vocal which added to the novelty of playing under the Ardara clubs impressive floodlights. Four Masters completely dominated for the first twenty minutesof the second half. Their dominance was reflected on the scoreboard as they lead 2­-7 to 0­-6 with ten minutes remaining. Dungloe then made some positional switches and substitutions which sprung them into life. Two goals in quick succession from Daire Galllagher and Ethan Ward gave them the incentive to go on and win the match. Scorers Ethan Ward 1­-0, Daire Gallagher 1­-0, Jerome Boyle 0­-3, Aiden McHugh 0­-3, Dylan Boyle 0­-2, Dominic Docherty 0­-2.

After four weeks of qualifying matches; the long awaited inaugural finals of the girls U12 Parish League took place last Friday evening at Moyle Park. The Semi-Final match between Megan Ryan’s team (managed by Mary McGinley) and Saoirse Kelly-Cullen’s team (managed by Tara Friel) was narrowly won by Megan’s team, with great scores from both teams, including Kirsty Dolan and Megan Ryan and Kelsey Mc Ateer and Saoirse Kelly-Cullen. The defences played a huge part in both teams with Anna Russell, Cliodhna McCotter-Kelly, Leah Afxentiou and Katelyn Hosford very strong for Megan’s team while Sarah Barrett, Millie Trearty and Emma Folen kept the back line very tight with Mary Barrett’s great ball-stopping skills and accurate kick-outs very effective for Saoirse’s team. The hand-passing skills from both teams was very impressive with Orla Mc Cleary, Beth Mc Fadden, Charlotte Davis and Kirsty Carr outstanding for Megan’s team while Aine Docherty and Mia Ferry were equally impressive for Saoirse’s team. After a short break, with the skies darkening, Megan’s team then faced the challenge of table-toppers Megann Ferry’s team (managed by Darren McAteer and Maia Nyhan). Megan Ryan herself was very impressive in this match but Aisling Mc Cormack also scored some very good points for Megann Ferry’s team to keep them in the match. The back line kept the scores down with Megann Ferry, Demi Hunter and Megan Mc Gettigan working very well together to get the ball out of defence. Danielle Kerr worked hard at midfield while Charlotte Claydon and Anna Mc Fadden displayed great ball handling skills in the forward line. A special mention must go to Aisling Patton Gallagher for her great net-minding skills. A big thank you to the referee, Caoimhe Barrett, who made sure the games ran smoothly and fairly, to all the managers for encouraging and leading their teams, to Anne-Marie Ferry and Anne Trearty who looked after the catering and to the parents and families who turned up to cheer the girls on.
