Clann na nGael 1 – 8 Kilmore 0 – 10
The Clann na nGael Athlone Springs Hotel senior team opened their championship with a win over Kilmore on Sunday last. The large Clann crowd which traveled to Kilmore saw the home team lead by 5 points to 2 mid way through the first half, with the Clann points coming from Donie Shine and Matt Scally.
Kilmore extended their lead before points from Enda Kenny and Donie Shine ensured Clann were within 2 points of the hosts at the break. Clann could have been further behind but for a fine Ronan O’Reilly save
Clann were the better team at the restart and points from Matt Scally, Jonathon Dunning and Cathal Shine put Clann in the lead for the first time. This was a lead which Clann held on to for the rest of the game.
A Jonathon Dunning goal pushed out Clann lead to 4 points. The game seemed over but a Kilmore revival gave Clann a nervy end to the game. A Darragh Lennon point made sure of the win for Clann. This a very good performance from the lad and they now play St Aidans in their next championship game. Best for Clann were Ronan O’Reilly, Denis Gavin, David Kelly, David Flynn, Enda Kenny and Matt Scally.
Team and scorers: Ronan o Reilly, Mark Killian, Brian Goode, Denis Gavin, Darragh Shine, David Flynn, Oliver Harney, David Kelly, Gary Shine, Jonathon Dunning 1-1, Mark Shine, Donie Shine 0-2, Darragh Lennon 0-1, Matt Scally 0-2, Enda Kenny 0-1.
