Senior League Division 1E – Swinford v Bohola Moy Davitts

Swinford enjoyed a very good win this afternoon against Bohola Moy Davitts by 1-14 to 1-10  to maintain a strong challenge in Division 1E. It was a game we led from start to finish and should have had more to spare at the end. A number of chances were wasted and the last score of the game with the last kick of the game was a penalty for the visitors.

Senior League Division 1C – Mayo Gaels v Swinford

On a very wet Sunday afternoon the home team came out on top of a battle in Mayo Abbey by 1-10 to 2-4.

It was a game that we should have got something out of, having the vast majority of the possession in the second half. Trailing by 4 at the interval, we then conceded a penalty shortly after the restart and were down by seven but a very spirited revival created a lot of chances but we could only get within 3 points of Mayo Gaels.

Division 1C Mayo Gaels v Swinford

On a very wet Sunday afternoon the home team came out on top of a battle in Mayo Abbey by 1-10 to 2-4.

It was a game that we should have got something out of, having the vast majority of the possession in the second half. Trailing by 4 at the interval, we then conceded a penalty shortly after the restart and were down by seven but a very spirited revival created a lot of chances but we could only get within 3 points of Mayo Gaels.

In the first half we played against the wind and Adam Gallagher proved his worth for Mayo Gaels with seven of their ten points. A goal from james Devaney and two frees from Liam Moran and a Kevin McShea point were our scores.

Adam Gallagher added the penalty for the home team after 4 minutes of the restart. We replied with a point from Liam Moran and a second goal from James Devaney after ten minutes.

Unfortunately despite a lot of possession and chances we could not raise another flag. The best chance was a save from substitute Michael Walsh with a few minutes left. Six wides in that period of dominance didn’t assist.

All in all in terrible conditions both teams played an enjoyable game of football and deserve credit for that.

Midway through the season we lie mid table with three wins and three defeats.

An interesting point on a dirty wet Sunday lunchtime was the good turnout of supporters for Mayo Gaels while a few stalwarts flew the flag for Swinford. Its a point that I keep harping about, being the poor support for Swinford when compared to the demand for county tickets come August/September. Hopefully I am proven wrong next weekend for our Championship match with Tourmakeady at Robert McCallion Memorial Park on Sunday at 4pm.

Swinford; Sean Kavanagh, Jason Carney, Paul McDonagh, Alan McLoughlin, Paul McNicholas, Mark Forkan, James Lavin, Eoin Gallagher, Johnny Burke, Barry Brennan, James Sweeney, Liam Moran, Darren Campbell, Kevin McShea, James Devaney Subs: Michael Walsh, Gerry Callaghan, Kevin McDonagh, Kevin Barry

Scorers: James Devaney 2-0, Liam Moran 0-3. Kevin McShea 0-1

Junior Championship Round 1 Swinford v Ardagh

CksB_uXWUAAxcKH.jpg large

On a lovely Saturday evening a very competitive game was played out in the first round of the Mayo GAA Junior Championship by both Swinford and Ardagh. There was never more then two points between the teams and the game went down to the wire. Swinford will be considering what could have been if they had 15 men for the second half.

The game started with two frees put wide by the home team before Ardagh opened the scoring after 5 minutes with a well taken 45. Darren Campbell equalised for Swinford after good work by Kevin McShea. From the resulting kick out Barry Brennan put Swinford ahead.

The game was soon level again before Kevin McShea got a point. Ardagh then got the only goal of the game when their corner forward got the ball out on the right hand sode of the pitch and drove in and shot into the net.

Barry Brennan got his second of the game to bring it back to a one point game and then a fine free from Adrian Forkan from all of 50 yards out leveled the game. Ardagh struck back with two points before James Sweeney pulled one back.

Then came the turning point with about five minutes left in the half Gerry Callaghan was sent off by the referree. Ardagh got the last score of the half with a free to leave it  Swinford 0-6 Ardagh 1-5.

Ardagh started the second half with a great goal opportunity that thankfully hit the post and came out and ended been kicked out for a 45 that was put wide. Adrian Forkan rolled back the years to get hius second of the game before he leveled the game with a free and then put Swinford ahead with another free.

Ardagh leveled the game with a free and then one up with another free. So midway through the half the visitors led by one.

JP Broderick entered the game as a replacement for Kevin McShea and put Swinford level with a free. The ding dong continued and Ardagh went back ahead with a free of their own. Adiran Forkan got his fifth point to level the game before great link up between Pearse Walsh, Adian Forkan and JP Broderick ended with a JP point. Swinford were now in the dominance and Adrian Forkan put two points between the teams entering the last five minutes.

Unfortunately Ardagh struck the final three points with the winning score coming four minutes into injury time.

After been level for seven times during the game it was Ardagh who came out on the top by 0-13 to 1-11.

Swinford were very unlucky not to get at least a point out of the game and now face Balla in round 2 in two weeks time. The most disappointing thing for the writer was the very poor support for Swinford. When there are more away supporters then home at a championship match it is very difficult to accept. The GAA is a lot more then the county team and locals have to get behind their club.

Swinford: Damien Geraghty, Aiden McLoughlin, Paul McDonagh, John Gerard Kelly, Shane McLoughlin, Kevin Barry, Andy Lenehan, Barry Brennan, Gerry Callaghan, James Sweeney, Steven Walsh, Cillian O’Donnell, Adrian Forkan, Kevin McShea, Darren Campbell. Subs: Mark McNicholas, JP Broderick, Pearse Walsh, Michael Walsh

Scorers: Adrian Forkan 0-7, Barry Brennan, JP Broderick 0-2, Kevin McShea, James Sweeney
