Minor A v St. Olaf - March 20th
Minor A v St Olaf - League
A much improved second half display saw our minors win this local derby by 6 points on a scoreline of 2-13 to 0-13pts.
Some incisive running by Olaf's from the throw in put us on the back foot and we trailed by three points early on. The switch of Paddy Flaherty to full forward was key in getting us into the game. Points from Paddy and Dan followed and a goal from the ever vigilant Hugh Kenny gave us a lead we were never to relinquish. Further scores from Adam Kelly and the hard working Daragh Jones left the half time score 1-6 to 0-6pts.
Two early second half points from Olaf's suggested it was going to be a tight affair, however led by the excellent Nathan Nolan we kicked on. An excellent move involving a number of players was superbly finished to the net by Paddy Flaherty (watch out Bernard Brogan). This put us ahead by seven points and while Olaf's did reduce it to four we finished stronger and points from Daragh and Paddy left us comfortably ahead by six at the final whistle.
