Match Report Swinford v Westport Div 1E

Swinford_GAA_Crest

Following the Intermediate teams one point win at home to Louisburgh the Junior team took to Robert McCallion Memorial Park for their Division 1E game against Westport.

First score came from the boot of Kevin McDonagh with an early free but then Westport scored 1-2 to take a commanding lead. Kevin McDonagh put over his second to leave the goal seperating the teams after ten minutes. Both teams swapped three points each over the next ten minutes with our scores from two Ryan Convey frees and a point from Paul McDonagh.

Swinford went down to 14 men with about five minutes left in the half. This galvinised the team and they scored the next two points from Kevin McDonagh and Ryan Convey. Westport got the last score of the half to leave it 0-7 to 1-6.

Westport drew first blood in the second half to stretch their lead but then after a number of changes Swinford found their rhythm and points from Kevin McDonagh, Michael Prendergast, Kevin McDonagh and Jason McLoughlin put them ahead by one point.

Westport drew level and with time running out a converted free from Kevin McDonagh put Swinford ahead once more. As the game went into injury time Westport converted their own free to level the game for the fourth time. Westport then regained the lead and though Swinford had one last attack they were not able to convert.

Final score Swinford 0-12 Westport 1-10

It was a very good performance with 14 men for 35 minutes but no reward for the home team. Both teams face each other again in a few weeks in the Junior B Championship.

Swinford: Damien Geraghty, Sean Prendergast, Paul McDonagh, Jonathan Moore, Peter Quinn, Kevin Barry, Ryan Convey, Barry Brennan, Kevin McDonagh, Gerard Callaghan, Caoimghin McLoughlin, Louis Cummins, Joe Kelly, Gearoid Brady Subs: Jason McLoughlin, Eoin Gallagher, Michael Prendergast, Joshua Smith, Alan McLoughlin

Swinford v Louisburgh

Match Report Swinford v Louisburgh

Swinford_GAA_Crest

Swinford faced into their fourth League game on a wet and windy Sunday afternoon at Robert McCallion Memorial Park looking for the first win of the season against 2016 Junior Champions Louisburgh.

Swinford playing with the wind opened the scoring after two minutes with a point from the boot of Liam Moran. A few minutes Liam Moran dropped a free into the danger area and the ball was toepoked into the net by Kevin McShea.

Louisburgh went straight down the field and opened their account with a point. In the following ten minutes Louisburgh put over three frees to level the game. Both teams struggled in front of the posts with a number of wides each.

Michael Prendergast put Swinford back in front before Louisburgh leveled the game. Points form Jason McLoughlin and Liam Moran put Swinford two ahead but Louisburgh put two over before the  break to leave the teams level at 1-4 to 0-7.

Louisburgh now playing with the wind started the second half very strong and scored the two opening points. Thankfully they did not have their scoring boots with them and missed a number of chances to extend their lead even further. This was very much down to strong Swinford defensive work.

It took to the 21st minute of the half before Swinford got a point from James Sweeney. With six minutes remaining Liam Moran knocked over a free to level the game. Louisburgh had a number of chances to regain the lead but put them all wide.

Deep into injury time Liam Moran got a free that he duly converted to give Swinford the lead. Louisburgh threw everything at the last attack and earned a 45 after a great block by James Sweeney. The ball dropped short an Swinford had their first win of the season. Final score Swinford 1-7 Louisburgh 0-9

It was a tremendous performance against a very good Louisburgh team and the players showed great fight and determination not to let this one slip away. The victory was based on huge defensive and the ability to take most of the chances that came our way.

Swinford: Ryan Convey, Aiden McLoughlin, Sean Brady, Alan McLoughlin, James Lavin, Mark McNicholas, Joshua Smith, Michael Walsh, Kevin Barry, James Sweeney, Johnny Burke, Liam Moran, Jason McLoughlin, Kevin McShea, Michael Prendergast Subs Joe Kelly, Damien Geraghty, Kevin McDonagh

Scorers: Liam Moran 0-4, Kevin McShea 1-0, Michael Prendergast, Jason McLoughlin, James Sweeney 0-1

Intermediate Championship Swinford v Shrule Glencorrib

Swinford_GAA_Crest

The 2017 Intermediate Championship kicked off this weekend and what a weekend to play football. In the most perfect of conditions Swinford and Shrule Glencorrib played a fine game of football on Sunday afternoon.

Just a month ago Shrule Glencorrib beat Swinford by 4 points in the opening league game at Robert McCallion Memorial Park. The championship team for Swinford saw four changes from that team.

Shrule started the better and got the first score of the game after 30 seconds with a straight forward free. Swinford strick back with a point from Liam Moran and then after five minutes Jason McLoughlin hit the net to put Swinford a goal ahead. Shrule scored another free and followed up with their first from play to narrow the gap to 1.

Michael Prendergast got his first score of the game which was soon cancelled out by another Shrule free. So after a very good opening ten minutes there was only one between the teams. Shrule leveled the game before Michael Prendergast got his second to put Swinford back ahead.

Shrule then hit the back of the net to put them ahead for the fist time. Swinford rallied but hit two wides. Shrule were then awarded a dubious penalty which was well saved by Ryan Convey. Shrule soon extended their lead with another point after twenty minutes to 3 points. Both teams then traded wides before Swinford scored two points before the break by Kevin McShea and Michael Prendergast.

At the break Shrule Glencorrib lead by one on a score of 1-5 to 1-6.

Swinford started the second half in flying fashion and within three minutes had completely turned the game around with a point from Jason McLoughlin and two from the Liam Moran. In between a couple of Swinford wides Shrule leveled the game with a point from play and from a free. Shrule then dominated the game and for some poor finishing could have finished Swinford off. They struck five wides before retaking the lead on the 43rd minute. Liam Moran strick a free to level the game.

Entering the last quarter the teams were level, Shrule then hit a golden patch and kicked five points in five minutes to take control of the game. One of the scores brought uncertainty to the linesmen as one signalled wide and the other waved the white flag. With eight minutes left on the clock Swinford were looking dead and buried but this team did not die and came back with a voracious intensity.

Liam Moran took a hold of the game by the scruff of the neck and ran at the Shrule Glencorrib defence. Three points from his boot and one from Jason McLoughlin had the game back to one with fifty eight minutes on the clock.

Shrule steadied themselves and got the crucial score of the game to put two between the teams as injury time approached. Liam Moran was not finished yet and scored his eight point of the game.

Liam was then awarded a free from a difficult angle and with three Shrule players no more then five yards from him in clear breach of the rules he hit the upright and the ball came back into play and was cleared by the Shrule defence to the sound of the full time whistle. It was a clear matter that the free should have be retaken from a more advantageous position.

Today wasn’t to be Swinford’s day but they showed great courage and heart and are not to be written off yet by anyone.

Swinford: Ryan Convey, Aiden McLoughlin, Sean Brady, Alan McLoughlin, Mark McNicholas, Mark Forkan, James Lavin, Michael Walsh, Kevin Barry, James Sweeney, Johnny Burke, Liam Moran, Jason McLoughlin, Kevin McShea, Michael Predergast Subs: Joshua Smith, Damien Geraghty

Scorers: Liam Moran 0-8, Jason McLoughlin 1-2, Michael Predergast 0-3, Kevin McShea 0-1
