St. Anthony’s BNS 3-06, St. Peter’s BNS 3-05: This was an evenly contested game with some lovely football by both sides.
St. Anthony’s got onto the scoreboard first with two points in succession by Conor Toole and Jamie Murray. St. Peter’s began their attack with Luke Clucas. He was unlucky when a point went just wide, then a goal chance was saved by St. Anthony’s Conor Rubalcava.
Conor had a fine match in goals for St. Anthony’s and kept them in the game. Conor Toole responded well by getting a point then a goal. The half finished with a goal for St. Anthony’s Jamie Murray and a point for St. Peter’s Carl Doyle.
The second half began with a point by Luke Evans for St. Anthony’s.
However St. Peter’s came back in style with three unanswered goals and two points. There were some fine scores by Carl Doyle and Jack Adamson.
St. Anthony’s managed to hang on to their lead by some good defending by Adam Carstairs and Stephen Taylor. It really was an exciting and close fought second-half.
Best for St. Peter’s was Carl Doyle. For St. Anthony’s Mazen Agamy always tried hard and Stephen Taylor did well.
