East Mayo Junior Championship Swinford v Eastern Gaels

We got off to a great start with a JP Broderick goal straight from the throw in which should have urged us to push on but Eastern Gaels came right back and within ten minutes the game was level.

Eastern Gaels proceeded to go into a three point lead as we approached half time. We then found our game and three points from Danny McNicholas, Adrian Forkan and JP Broderick had the game level at the break.

The visitors got the first point of the second half to go back into the lead. Some great defensive work by the Swinford forwards led to the ball been overturned and played into JP Broderick and no better man to have in front of goals as he grabbed his second goal of the game.

From there on in it was all Swinford and the game should have been put out of sight of Eastern Gaels but for some poor finishing. Adrian Forkan extended our lead from a free before we had a catalogue of wides before two more points from Adrian Forkan, one from play and the second from a free pushed our lead to 5.

Eastern Gaels pulled one back before points from JP Broderick and Adrian Forkan saw out the game on a finish of Swinford 2-8 Eastern Gaels 0-8.

We now go on to play Bohola Moy Davitts to see who proceeds out of the group.

Swinford: Gavin Moore, Aiden McLoughlin, Paul McDonagh, John Gerard Kelly, Mark McNicholas, Kevin Barry, Sean Prendergast, Michael Walsh, Steven Walsh, Cillian O’Donnell, Danny McNicholas, Michael Prendergast, Adrian Forkan, JP Broderick, Anthony Friel. Subs: Gearoid Brady, Andy Lenehan, James Sweeney

Scorers: JP Broderick 2-3, Adrian Forkan 0-4, Danny McNicholas 0-1

Junior Championship Ballina v Swinford

In round 3 of the Breaffy Resort Junior Championship we lost by 3-12 to 1-10 to Ballina on Saturday evening.

It was a game that we battled very hard in but could not stay with the home team. The loss of a number of players to the Intermediate team over the last few weeks took its toll.

We started off well an scored the first point of the game through JP Broderick but Ballina then took a hold on the game and scored 1-3 before JP added a second point. In between two points from Adrian Forkan Ballina also added two more to leave the score at the break 1-5 to 0-4.

We enjoyed a great start to the second half and within ten minutes were level with points from Jason McLoughlin, JP Broerick and two frees from Cillian O’Donnell.

Unfortunately Ballina then rattled off four points of their own to open up the gap once again but for the second time we came back again, this time with a goal from JP Broderick. Though Ballina came down the field and looked to have scored a point only for the referee to whistle for a penalty. The gap was back out to four again and despite working very hard we couldn’t get back into the game for a third time.

Points from Paul McDonagh and JP Broderick were counteracted with a further 1-3 from Ballina.

For the second year in a row we enter the relegation playoffs.

Swinford: Damien Geraghty, Aiden McLoughlin, Paul McDonagh, John Gerard Kelly, Sean Predergast, Kevin Barry, Andrew Lenehan, Michael Walsh, Stephen Walsh, Cillian O’Donnell, Mark McNicholas, Joshua Smith, Adrian Forkan, JP Broderick, Jason McLoughlin Subs: Gary Keane, Jonathan Moore

Scorers: 1-4, Adrian Forkan, Cillian O’Donnell 0-2, Jason McLoughlin, Paul McDonagh 0-1

In a game that we enjoyed a lot of possession and never gave up the scores just would not come and we were defeated on a scoreline of 2-10 to 1-3. Balla came into the game as favourites for the Junior Championship and showed why by taking most of their chances created.

We dominated possession in the first half but had too many wides and suffered the loss of James Sweeney very early in the game with an injury and a black card for Kevin McShea midway through the half. We them lost Paul McDonagh through injury at the end of the half. The team didn’t give up and kept going right to the final whistle though the game was beyond us.

Intermediate Championship: Swinford v Tourmakeady

Cl4M0qcWIAAVNuB.jpg large

Swinford squeaked out a win over Tourmakeady in the second round of the Egan Jewellers Intermediate Championship at Sunday lunchtime.

Only three weeks since we defeated our visitors by 13 points in the league we beat them by 1-8 to 0-8 but Tourmakeady will look back on their thirteen wides and think of what could have been.

An early Liam Moran free opened the scoring but then Tourmakeady took complete control of the game and inbetween scoring three points had nine wides. We got our second point after twenty five minutes from Kevin McShea and James Devaney had us level a minute later.

Then came the turning point of the game on the strike of half time with goal from Darren Campbell. After been under the cush for most of the half we went into the dressing room leading by a goal.

Both teams swapped scores throughout the second half, within a minute of the restart Tourmakeady pulled a point back and this was then ruled out by one from Johnny Burke. Tourmakeady again made it a two point before two scores from substitute Jack McDonnell stretched our lead to four. Again Tourmakeady pulled one back before a very brave point by James Devaney kept two scores between the teams with about five minutes left.

The visitors then got the following two scores before substitute Daragh McIntyre got the last score of the game. We then endured a very nervous finish to the game and a mad scramble in our own goal mouth before the ball was kicked clear and the final whistle came.

With Kiltimagh defeating Bohola Moy Davitts in the other group game it means a winner takes all game with Moy Davitts in a few weeks time.

Swinford: Sean Kavanagh, Jason Carney, Joe Kelly, Alan McLoughlin, Kevin Doyle, Mark Forkan, James Lavin, Fergal Harte, Barry Brennan, Darren Campbell, Kevin McDonagh, Liam Moran, Johnny Burke, Kevin McShea, James Devaney Subs: Gerry Callaghan, Jack McDonnell, Darragh McIntyre, Sean Brady

Scorers: Darren Campbell 1-0, James Devaney, Jack McDonnell 0-2, Liam Moran, Kevin McShea, Johnny Burke, DarraghMcIntyre 0-1
