Venue Silverpark

Our Minor A team got their 2016 Championship off to a winning start with 1-12 to 1-7 victory over St. Brigids’ at Silverpark. Playing with the breeze Brigids’ were quick out of the blocks and were 4 pts up in a matter of minutes, indeed it could have been more but for some wayward shooting. Having weathered the storm we upped our work rate and by half time we trailed by 2pts 0-6 to 0-4.

An excellent start to the second half saw us move 3pts clear with some excellent scores from Sean Gillan, Niall O’Leary and Dan O’Brien. We continued to dominate and with our forwards on top we should have been out of sight before Brigids’ grabbed a late goal to reduce the lead to just 2pts. However an immediate response saw a driving run from Nathan Nolan result in the Brigids’ keeper parrying his shot to Rob Russell who finished to the net.

Next up Ballyboden away on the 25th.
