Senior League Match Report Swinford v Achill

Swinford_GAA_Crest

After the disappointment of last weekend the team put in a very good display this evening at Robert McCallion Memorial Park to draw with Achill.

A great bunch travelled from the island to Swinford for the game and it was well worth the journey. Both teams played football that does not warrant their positions near the bottom of division 1C.

Michael Walsh opened the scoring after 20 seconds where fine interplay between Kevin McDonagh, James Sweeney set Mick up for the point. Achill kicked the next three points over the space of five minutes, the first one coming from a good save by Damien Geraghty.

Swinford second was a lovely point from Kevin McDonagh, a one-two from a sideline ball with Mick Walsh set Kevin away to kick over the bar. Achill soon restored their two point lead.

In the 8th minute Kevin McDonagh got his second point and after a great run by Alan McLoughlin resulting in a free Liam Moran leveled the game.

On the 15th minute Liam Moran put Swinford ahead and withing minutes Liam found the back of the net. Great work betwen Kevin McDonagh, Michael Prendergast and Liam Moran sent Liam away to bury in the net. Swinford were well on top now and after  a kickout was won by Michael Walsh and played into Kevin McDonagh, another point was added. Liam Moran added another to put us 6 clear with 23 minutes gone.

The defence were well in control and pushing Achill back all the time but they were too be breached. Patient build up by the visitors saw the ball kicked across the box and fisted into the net to bring the deficit back to three.

Swinford rallied in the last five minutes of the half and Liam Moran added two points to leave matters at the break Swinford 1-9 Achill 1-4.

With the wind advantage in the second half Achill soon reduced the deficit only for Michael Prendergast to cancel it out.

Then in the space of five minutes Achill scored 1-3 to take the lead. It was a dominant period that showed they had not just come for the scenery of East Mayo. Kevin McDonagh equalised with over 15 mins left and the game was anybody.

A great save by Damien Geraghty kept the scores level before a soft free for Achill put them ahead once again. Michael Prendergast leveled once more with a fine point from out on the left.

With time running out Achill again took the lead  and on the 60th minute Michael Prendergast leveled the game for the 6th time. Despite a stonewall call for a free in injury time within kicking distance of the posts there was to be no more added to the scoreboard and the game finished Swinford 1-13 Achill 2-10.

Swinford played some great football and if they continue this form the wins will come and we can push away from the bottom of the table.

Swinford: Damien Geraghty, Alan McLoughlin, Sean Brady, Kevin Barry, James Lavin, Ryan Convey, Joshua Smith, Michael Walsh, Johnny Burke, James Sweeney, Kevin McShea, Liam Moran, Kevin McDonagh, Michael Prendergast, Tom Horkan. Subs Aiden McLoughlin, Conor Conway, Darren Campbell

Scorers: Liam Moran 1-5, Kevin McDonagh 0-4, Michael Prendergast 0-3, Michael Walsh 0-1.

Junior B Championship Westport v Swinford Match Report

Mayo GAA Crest
Mayo GAA Crest

Two weeks ago these two teams met in round 5 of Division 1E of the league at Robert McCallion Memorial Park and the visitors prevalied by a point. If that was anything to go by we were going to be in for a right game in the Championship in Westport.

Westport got the opening point in the first minute. Swinford nearly replied in great fashion but a shot from Gerry Callaghan flew past the post and wide. Westport got into their rhythm and rattled over two more points (one free).

Swinford came back in great fashion and with converted frees from the left by Dermot McNicholas and the right from Adrian Forkan and then a point from Tom Horkan had the game level after ten minutes.

Westport regained control and put over three points to move three clear once again. Adrian Forkan pulled one back with a converted free but Westport added another three before the half time interval to leave them five ahead: Westport 0-9 Swinford 0-4

It looked like a tall ask for Swinford at this stage and when Westport got the first score of the second half there looked like no way back for Swinford. Thats not how the team from East Mayo are built and Swinford got scores from Adrian Forkan (F) and Tom Horkan split by a Westport point to leave five between the teams.

On the 39th minute Swinford found their way back when after a great run by Barry Brennan and some confusion in the square Tom Horkan found the net. Suddenly Swinford found their attacking prowess and a point by Kevin McDonagh and two find scores from Dermot McNicholas put them ahead for the first time in the game with less then a quarter to go.

Westport were not finished and came back with three points of their own to go two ahead with five minutes remaining. Swinford didn’t give in and once again came back with a point from the boot of Adrian Forkan.

With the clock ticking down and into the last minute Kevin McDonagh put over a hugh point from the left side and leveled the game for the fourth time. Westport had one last chance to win the game but thankfully the ball went wide.  The final whistle came with the score Westport 0-14 Swinford 1-11

A draw in the first round of the Junior B Championship was deserved by both teams. The youngsters of Westport and the mix of youth and experience on the Swinford team gave a tremendous game for the crowd on a Saturday afternoon.

It was great to see the return of Tom Horkan and the championship debut for Swinford for Dermot McNicholas. Plenty of life left in them old legs. Great work done in the middle of the field by Barry Brennan and Joe Kelly and the defence marshalled by captain Paul McDonagh did very well. We now look forward to the visit of Kiltimagh in the next round.

Swinford Aaron Kinsella, Johnathan Moore, Paul McDonagh, Cillian O’Donnell, Darren Campbell, Darragh McIntyre, Kevin McDonagh, Joe Kelly, Barry Brennan, Tom Horkan, Eoin Gallagher, Gerry Callaghan, Gearoid Brady, Dermot McNicholas, Adrian Forkan. Subs Stephen Kenny, Shane Julian.

Scorers: Tom Horkan 1-2,  Adrian Forkan 0-4, Dermot McNicholas 0-3 Kevin McDonagh 0-2
