Gaels prevail in Division 2 FL decider 09 October 2006

Two second-half goal made all the difference as Blackhall Gaels overcame Seneschalstown in the final of the Killoe Developments sponsored Division 2 FL decider at Dunsany on Sunday.

Blackhall Gaels …… 2-6
Seneschalstown ….. 0-8

Having trailed by 0-2 to 0-5 at the break, Blackhall Gaels conceded another point before David Carty put his name to their first goal four minutes after the restart.
Anthony Moyles played a key role in the build-up, winning primary possession at midfield and then pushing forward to lay off the final pass. The county player also set up Tadhg Brosnan for the point that gave Blackhall Gaels the lead for the second and final time in the 53rd minute.

The outcome was still in the balance until substitute Robert Cox poked the ball to the net after a bit of ping-pong around the Seneschalstown goal. Another replacement Declan Dalton extended the advantage before Joe Sheridan landed a consolation point from a free in the final seconds.

Brosnan announced his return from suspension with the opening score which took 11 minutes to arrive as both sides struggled on the heavily sanded pitch in the early exchanges.

After Brian Clarke levelled matters, Seneschalstown had the better of the second quarter and finished the half with points from Brian Clarke(free) and Damien Sheridan to lead by 0-5 to 0-2 at the break.

Joe Sheridan didn’t join the until near the end of the first quarter after being delayed in traffic en route from Dublin, while Alan Nestor didn’t figure for Blackhall after picking up a knock the previous Sunday.

Seneschalstown might have had a goal in the run-up to half time but Brian Clarke fired low and wide on the run after taking a pass from Gary Conlon. Seconds earlier Anthony Moyles tried to finish to the net soccer style after being put through by Mark Ferris but his scuffed attempt was cleared.

When Brian Clarke, the only Seneschalstown player to score more than once, pointed his third free in the 39th minute, it was 0-7 to 1-2. But they didn’t score again until it was too late.

Their task was made all the more difficult following the dismissal of Stephen Dillon, on a straight red card in the 47th minute with the sides deadlocked at 0-7 to 1-4.

After the game Cyril Creavin, assistant secretary of the County Committee, presented the Michael Gaughan Cup to the winning captain, Anthony Moyles.

BFL: Blackhall are narrow winners 26 June 2010

Blackhall Gaels 1-09
Clann na Gael 0-11

Blackhall Gaels gained their second successive league win with a narrow victory over Clann na Gael in Kilcloon on Thursday 24th June.
In ideal playing conditions both teams served up an exciting game with some excellent passages of play. Clann na Gael were quickest out of the blocks with the opening point which was immediatley cancelled out by a John O’Brien 45. The teams then traded points to leave it at four points each coming up to half time, the Blackhall score’s coming from O’Brien with a pointed free, Ciaran Burke with a fine effort from play and finally an impressive left footed score from wing back Mick Snee after an incisive run through the visitors defence. Clann na Gael however pushed on and got two scores late in the period to leave the visitors two points to the good at half time 0-06 to 0-04.

The second half saw Blackhall quickly take the lead after a well worked goal which started with a short ball out of defence from goalkeeper David Ferris. Three quick passes later and Liam Eviston gave the Clann na Gael keeper no chance with an unstoppable finish to the roof of the net. Clann na Gael narrowed the gap with some excellent free taking but Blackhall done enough to hold on to all three points with the help of three points from play from half time substitute Robert Cox, and two further points from Eviston. With just the minimum between the teams there were a tense last few minutes but the Blackhall defence held firm with some vital interceptions from Cyril O’Brien and goalkeeper Ferris ensuring Blackhall Gaels took both points.

Blackhall Gaels – 1. David Ferris, 2. Cyril O’Brien, 3. Paddy Snee, 4. Liam Howlett, 5. Mick Snee (0-01), 6. Tony Regan, 7. Ulick Colgan, 8. John O’Brien (0-02), 9. Daragh Finnegan, 10. Mick Durkin, 11. Ciaran Burke (0-01), 12. Paul Whelan, 13. Paul Regan, 14. Liam Eviston (1-02), 15. John Kelly.
Subs: Gary Connolly for Tony Regan (inj), Robert Cox (0-03) for Paul Regan, Owen Creevey for Paul Whelan

BFL: Two points for Blackhall 18 May 2010

Blackhall Gaels 2-06
Donaghmore/Ashbourne 2-04

Blackhall Gaels recovered impressively from the set back of an early goal to claim both points in this BFL Div 5 tie.

After the concession of the early goal and a pointed free in the first few minutes, the Gaels responded in swift and impressive fashion. With Jim Finglas winning clean ball in the full forward line and bringing those around him into the game, Robert Cox struck a superb goal and John O’Brien followed up with a couple of 45’s to bring the Gaels right back into contention.

With the Gaels defence, for who Cyril O’Brien & Liam Howlett were outstanding, making it difficult for the home side to get any clear shots on goal, Blackhall built on that defensive foundation and added another fine left footed Cox goal as well as points from Cox again and the versatile John Staunton to lead by six at half time: 2-04 to 1-01.

The second half playing against a strong wind required a huge defensive effort to repel the Donaghmore Ashbourne challenge. The home side brought themselves back into the game with a fisted goal but were forced into shooting from distance by some great Gaels tackling, particularly by midfielders Peter Keegan & John O’Brien. Although Don/Ash managed a further 3 points, Robert Cox and Mick Durkan pointed efforts ensured Blackhall Gaels gained their first win of this campaign. This win now sets them up nicely for the start of the Junior D Championship.

Blackhall Gaels – David Ferris, Cyril O’Brien, Paddy Snee, Liam Howlett, Mick Snee, John Staunton (0-01), Ulick Colgan, John O’Brien (0-02), Peter Keegan, Mick Durkin (0-01), Shane O’Loughlin, John Kelly, Paul Regan, Robert Cox (2-02), Jim Finglas. Subs: Gary Connolly for Paddy Snee (inj), Kieran Devanney for Jim Finglas, Owen Creevey for Paul Regan

A stepping stone for Kilcock Ladies…

The 2010 crop of Kilcock minor ladies travel to Milltown tommorow 12th of march to contest an eagerly awaited minor b final against Athy, a club they defeated two years ago to take the minor d championship.This is another rung on the ladder for a club that has put so much work into their under age system over the last 7-8 years, thanks mainly in part to a group of girls based on the senior team and win lose or draw they are beginning to bear the fruits of their labour.The girls are managed by the men’s senior goalie Shane Stone,who when interviewed during the week over a light lunch in Kilcock’s Streetside Cafe over looking the town’s scenic canal, was under no illusions of the task ahead.”Athy are a strong outfit,they still possess the bulk of their 2008 side and beat us late last year in the group stages,but their cause was aided by some lucky goals and some rather strange refereeing decisions, but you’ll get that and we know if we turn up with the right attitude on the day we’ll be more than capable of beating them and we have some of the best girls in the county at this age”.It is easy to see how Stone has guided his troops this far, a calm,cool and confident man which has surely rubbed off on his team.He was quick to point out however that it was not all down to him and took time to thank his assisstant Sheena Byrne and others such as Robert Cox, Linda Byrne, Seamus Kane and David Hynes and of course all-rounder Breda Byrne or ”lil b” as he reffered to her as.So with players of the calibare of Emily Milner,Grace White,Ashling O’Connor and Caoimhe Fagan to name but a few lets hope captain Emma Robinson can bring the trophy back to north Kildare come saturday evening!!
