Centenary Cup

Swinford defeated Ballaghaderreen tonight (Sat) in round 3 of the Centenary Cup to put them top of the group with Ballaghaderreen and Kiltimagh.

In a very good performance Swinford started the game well with a free from Liam Moran after the referee spotted foul play close to goal. Liam followed this up with a point from play before Ballaghaderreen got their opening score with a goal after ten minutes.

Swinford struck back with two frees from Liam Moran which put them in a lead that they never gave up. A wonderful ball from Michael Walsh cut the defence open to Darren Campbell who buried in the net to put Swinford ahead by 4. Ballagahderreen came back with three points and they will be kicking themselves with a number of wides.

Before the break Jason McLoughlin scored two points to put Swinford head by three as we thought. The referee corrected teh score to put it Swinford 1-6 Ballaghaderreen 1-4.

Five minutes into the second half Jason Mcloughlin shot low and hard into the net, followed up by a Liam Moran free put Swinford ahead by 6. Ballaghaderreen pulled one back before Swinford lost Michael Walsh to injury.

Another point from Jason McLoughlin kept it at 6 midway through the half. Ballaghaderren scored a point from play and then two free from frees to leave a goal between the teams entering the last two minutes.

On the 60th minute Liam Moran got a great point from play to give Swinford a bit of comfort as Ballaghaderreen came down the field and hit the back of the net.

Swinford held out in injury time to record a one point win and their 4th win in a row, taking in Centenary Cup, League and Championship. Winning is a great feeling.

Swinford: Aaron Kinsella, Sean Prendergast, Sean Brady, Alan McLoughlin, Conor Conway, Mark Forkan, James Lavin, Michael Walsh, Kevin Doyle, Fergal Harte, Michael Prendergast, Liam Moran, Jason McLoughlin, Tom Horkan, Darren Campbell. Subs James Sweeney, Aiden McLoughlin, James McNicholas

Scorers; Liam Moran 0-6, Jason McLoughlin 1-3, Darren Campbell 1-0

Intermediate Championship Islandeady v Swinford

Swinford_GAA_Crest

In June 2017 these two sides met in round 2 of the championship with Isleadeady winning out easy winners by 3-16 to 0-13.

Ten months later it was a different story as Swinford travelled to Islandeady for the first round of Egan Jewellers Intermediate Championship. Given very little chance by the local papers with one scribe suggesting that we should not be in the Championship Swinford upset all the odds.

After three minutes of play all the doubters were smiling as Isleadeady got off to a great  start with two points and a goal. Swinford then awoke and took the game straight at Isleadeady with a point from James Devaney and a great individual goal from Johnny Burke. Further points from Liam Moran, Michael Walsh, Conor Conway and Liam Moran had Swinford leading by 3 with ten minutes on the clock. It was a lead that they were never going to relinguish.

Both teams shared points with Swinford from Liam Moran, added to by a free from Jason McLoughlin. Both goalkeepers earned their places with the home keeper saving well from James Devaney and Aaron Kinsella making a great save at the other end. Swinford lost their full back Sean Brady to a black card after 20 minutes to be replaced by Sean Prendergast.

Islandeady pulled one back but a number of wides did not assist their cause. Just before the break Jason McLoughlin got his second point of the game with a fine kick from play. At half time Swinford led by 4 points.

It was at this stage last June that the home team took control of the game but this was a different Swinford side. Isleadeady got the opening score that was cancelledout by James Devaney. The next point from Isleadeady could have proved very controversial as the umpire signalled a wide ball, only to be overruled by the linesman and a point awarded.

Both teams shared a number of wides with Swinford kicking a lot of ball short into the goalkeeper hands. Islandeady landed a free and there was two between the teams. Then on the 47th minute the crucial score of the game came Swinford’s way. Their plan of pressing the Islandeady kickouts bore fruit as a poor kick came straight to Jack McDonnell who with a bit of work to do buried it in the net. That was to be Swinford last score of the game as Islandeady threw everything at them. They rattled off four points to leave it a one point game with time up on the clock. 4 and a half minutes of injury time were played with a free to the home team with the last kick of the game, that went of to the right and wide.

Emotional scenes from all the Swinford players, management and supporters as they celebrated their well derserved win.

In the other game in group 2 saw Burrishoole defeat Bonniconlon 2-12 to 0-10.

Swinford: Aaron Kinsella, Alan McLoughlin, Sean Brady, James Lavin, Conor Conway, Mark Forkan, Joshua Smith, Michael Walsh, Johnny Burke, Darren Campbell, Michael Predergast, Liam  Moran, Jason McLoughlin, Jack McDonnell, James Devaney Subs Sean Prendergast, Tom Horkan, James Sweeney, James McNicholas

Scorers: Johnny Burke, Jack McDonnell 1-0, Liam Moran 0-3, James Deveany, Jason McLoughlin 0-2, Michael Walsh, Conor Conway 0-1

Senior League Div 4 Swinford v Castlebar Mitchells

Swinford_GAA_Crest

Today saw the start of our 2018 league campaigh with a visit by Castlebar Mitchells to Robert McCallion Memorial Park.

Both teams were relegated last year and in the corresponding fixture Mitchells ran out easy winners. It was not to be the same today with a resurgent Swinford team that led for the entire game and should have been more comfortable at the full time whistle.

In the third minute Swinford opened the scoring with a free from Liam Moran that was followed by a second free from Liam. Mitchells pulled one back before a fine point from Kevin McShea, one from play by Liam Moran and a point from Mick Walsh after a 45 dropped short. Swinford were well in control when Johnny Burke took a quick free to find Jason McLoughlin who finished to the net. After 15 minutes Swinford led by 1-5 to 0-1.

Over the next ten minutes Swinford lost to injury Kevin McShea and Jason Carney and Mitchells scored three points, one from a dubious free, a soft free and the third from play. Swinford settled and a free from Liam Moran and a point from Darren Campbell after a great catch by Mick Walsh put 6 between the teams. Just before the interval Swinford lost Michael Prendergast to a black card but were well in control of the game.

It was a slow start to the second half before Mitchells got the first score on the 34th minute. Two points from Liam Moran from a free and from play kept a good distance between the teams. Mitchells pulled one back but Swinford replied with two frees from Liam Moran and Jason McLoughlin. With 15 minutes left another free from Liam Moran put 9 between the teams.

What you want to avoid then happened and Mitchells got a goal that sparked them to life and they scored the next three points. With five minutes to go it was a one score game but some resolute defence and great team work saw Swinford ease the pressure and see out the game to win 1-12 to 1-9.

After a tough 2017 on and off the pitch it was great to get 2018 off to a winning start. Next up on Saturday (7th) is Championship football away to Isleadeady with a next leage game home to Killala on Saturday 14th.

Thanks also to the good support at the game today. See you all again next week.

Swinford: Aaron Kinsella, Alan McLoughlin, Sean Brady, James Lavin, Conor Conway, Kevin McShea, Jason Carney, Michael Walsh, Mark Forkan, Joshua Smith, Michael Prendergast, Liam Moran, Jason McLoughlin, Johnny Burke, Darren Cambell. Subs Cillian O’Donnell, Kevin Doyle, James McNicholas.

Scorers: Liam Moran 0-8, Jason McLoughlin 1-1, Kevin McShea, Michael Walsh, Darren Campbell 0-1
