Senior Football League Div 4 – Aghada 2-5 v Grenagh  1-8; Grenagh 18/2/18

Our Senior footballers travelled to Grenagh last Sunday afternoon hoping to make it 3 wins out of 3 in this year’s league. Things all went according to that plan in the 1st half with 2 goals inside the opening 7 minutes, one from Ronan Kennedy and the 2nd from Pearse O’Neill which gave Aghada a 5 point lead. Points from O’Neill, Cian Fleming and Josh O’Shea gave Aghada a halftime total of 2-5. The home side had 5 points of their own, 3 from play and 2 frees. So a 6 point lead and things were looking good for Aghada who had played well in the 1st period, and if anything, should have been further ahead as they spurned two other excellent goal chances and kicked a number of wides. The second half turned out to be a different story however. Grenagh dropped an extra man back and Aghada would not score for the entire half. Crucially as well, Grenagh scored a goal of their own within 5 minutes of the restart and it gave them the confidence to go on and dominate the 2nd half. Slowly but surely they pegged back the lead. Thanks to good defending in the main from Jake and Kalen O’Donoghue, it was still a 3 point game with 10 to play. However 2 points in a minute left the bare minimum in it with just 5 minutes to play. It was a holding on exercise for Aghada at this point, but the equaliser eventually came in the 61st minute. Not long after, the final whistle sounded and both teams shared the spoils. So 5 points out of a possible 6, still a good return as we switch over to hurling for the next couple of weeks.

Team and scorers – Andy O’Donoghue, Tim Hartnett, Shane Wall, David Rice, Kalen O’Donoghue, Jake O’Donoghue, Aaron Berry, Marcus Leahy, Charlie Terry, Conor O’Driscoll, Josh O’Shea(0-1), Daniel Creedon, Ronan Kennedy(1-0), Cian Fleming (0-3), Pearse O’Neill (1-1).
