HODSON BAY SENIOR QUARTER FINAL
McGovern Civils Senior Men
Our Senior Men have progressed to the Semi-Final in the Championship after a battle against Michael Glaveys in Dr Hyde Park on Sunday, final score: 1.11 – 0.09.
The game was played in good conditions, there was hardly a breeze but the pitch was greasy causing quite a stir throughout the game as players from both sides lost their footing leading to turnovers. Although Glaveys opened scoring in the first half, our lads took control of the scoreboard for the remainder of the first half. Along with his 4 frees in the first half, C McKeon scored the only goal of the game after a low ball from E McGrath was rocketed towards the full-forward line. Combined with a point from D Cregg and a mark from D East, the half time score was 1.06 – 0.04
Once again, Glaveys opened scoring after the break, but they meant business, quickly adding three consecutive points from play to their talley. What should have been a game-defining moment, they also received a penalty midway through the half – but it was popped over the bar – much to their side-lines dismay. Our strength in the air stood to us, and with countless marks on both ends of the field the ball was worked well throughout the pitch.
We’re now set to play St Brigid’s in the Semi-Final of the Championship on Sunday, October 9 at 4.15pm in Dr Hyde Park. The other semi between Roscommon Gaels and Strokestown will run ahead of this with throw in at 2pm. Best of luck with your preparation’s lads! Special word to the Chairman David Kelly on keeping the world updated and entertained on the twitter machine!
Team List: R Kearney, L Glennon, C Flanagan, D Casey, T McKenna, S Purcell, D East (0.02 – 1m), R Hanmore, E Smith, K Cox, E McGrath, C Feely, D Cregg (0.02), D Smith (0.01) & C McKeon (1.06 – 4f). Subs used: C Goldrick for Cox, E Kerins for Hanmore and J Moran for East.
