A wonderful and brave win
The Western Gaels juveniles are the new Division 2 Champions after a thrilling final in Pearse Park on Tuesday evening last. Though the throw In Was delayed, and the lads fell victim to two early goals, they showed great character to rally on. The two goals are ones keeper Eanna McGrath will want to forget but he more than made up for it with some in valuable saves and pin point kick outs later in the game. The gales didn't let this deter the, and thanked to a goal from Oran Kenny, nicely set up by Kian Gilmore, they found themselves a point in-front 15 mins into the game 1-4 to 2-0 up. The later (kian) then netted himself later in the half after a great run through the middle and a personal tally of 1-2,from Rory Howlin seen the Gaels go in at half time 3-7 to 2-2 up.
However the Drumlish/Dromard team started the second half in similar style with a 2-2 blitz of the Gaels defence it's only a solitary point in reply! This was in the melting pot with 15 mins to go in Longford HQ but after a doggie 5 mins of play where neither team really excelled, the Gaels up a gear and kicked and three unanswered points saw them race into a 3 point lead! Both teams exchanged a point a piece but the Western Gaels had done enough to bring the silverware home winning on a score line of 3-12 to 4-05!
Well done tonJimmy, Mark, Seam & PJ and all the lads on a tremendous result! Check out the Twitter andcfacebook pages for photos from the night!
