Michael Walsh Q/Final Kiltimagh v Swinford match report

Swinford_GAA_Crest

On a beautiful Sunday afternoon at Gilmartin Park Swinford were hoping to break their run of defeats to Kiltimagh. The last meeting in the Intermediate Championship last May saw an easy win by 14 points  for the home team.

Swinford started very well and a great run by Liam Moran led to an early goal chance for James Devaney which was well saves.  From the following Kevin McDonagh put a free over the bar. Two wides apiece followed before a second Kevin McDonagh free extended Swinford’s lead.

There was eighteen minutes on the clock before Kiltimagh gott off the mark but they rattled off six on the trot to go in at the break leading by 4 points: Kiltimagh 0-6 Swinford 0-2

Kiltimagh extended their lead after the restart before a lovely Liam Moran point from a well caught kick out by Johnny Burke. Unfortunately the game was soon over as a contest as Kiltimagh hit the back of the net to put 7 between the teams.

Swinford could well have been back in the match but for a great save by the Kiltimagh goalkeeper from Jason McLoughlin.

Kiltimagh got another point that looked well wide but was given by the match officials. Both teams emptied their benchs and rattled off a few points each with the Swinford scores coming from James Devaney, Liam Moran (F), Mark McNicholas and a monster point from Mark Forkan.

The game finished Kiltimagh 1-13 Swinford 0-7. There is a lot of work to be done by the Swinford team but they have certainly narrowed the gap since last May.

Swinford: Sean Kavanagh, Aiden McLoughlin, Paul McDonagh, James Lavin, Mark McNicholas, Sean Brady, Kevin Barry, Michael Walsh, Mark Forkan, Joshua Smith, Johnny Burke, Liam Moran, Kevin McDonagh, James Devaney, Jason McLoughlin Subs: Darren Campbell, Alan McLoughlin, Louis Cummins, Caoimghin McLoughlin, Antony Friel.

Scores: Kevin McDonagh, Liam Moran 0-2, James Devaney, Mark McNicholas, Mark Forkan 0-1

Michael Walsh League R4 Swinford v Balla Match Report

Swinford GAA
Swinford GAA

On a wet and windy St. Patricks Day morning Swinford kept their unbeaten run in the 2017 Michael Walsh Intermediate League going with a good win against Balla.

Swinford played with the strong wind for the first half but it was Balla got off to a great start with a point in the first minute. Swinford then lost their full forward Gordon Carter in the second minute with hamstring trouble.

After 5 minutes Liam Moran got Swinford off the mark and this was quickly followed by a great goal from James Devaney.  Kevin McShea extended our lead with a fine 45. Then followed a lot of possession by the home team but no action on the scoreboard.

After 20 minutes Balla got their second point, soon followed by their third. Liam Moran soon settled Swinford with his second of the game but again some poor finishing meant the score at half time was Swinford 1-3 Balla 0-3.

Against a strong wind and only a three point lead things were not looking good for Swinford but this team plays better when in the weaker position.

A good start with a pointed free from Kevin McDonagh extended the Swinford lead. Then came the Balla backlash and they rattled off three points, including two frees to leave it a one point game with about 20 minutes left.

Swinford then settled and got to grasps with the Balla forwards and pushed well up on them. Great work by Jason McLoughlin out on the wing fed the ball to James Devaney who scored a fine point, which he soon added to with a second point. Midway through the half we led by the first half goal.

Liam Moran added two points, one from a free to put five between the teams and the game petered out. Balla got a consolation free near the end to finish the game Swinford 1-8 Balla 0-7.

In poor conditions and with the two young teams on display it was a good game and leaves Swinford on top of group 1 of the Michael Walsh Intermediate League with a game against Castlebar Mitchells left.

Swinford: Seam Kavanagh, Aiden McLoughlin, Paul McDonagh, James Lavin, Mark McNicholas, Kevin Barry, Joshua Smith, Mark Forkan, Sean Brady, Darren Campbell, Kevin McShea, Liam Moran, Jason McLoughlin, Gordon Carter, James Devaney. Subs: Kevin McDonagh, Jonathan Moore, Caoimghin McLoughlin

Scores: James Devaney 1-2, Liam Moran, 0-4, Kevin McShea, Kevin McDonagh 0-1
