Goals prove vi­tal


Drogheda Independent - - FRONT PAGE -

GOALS from Conor Healy and Brian Ber­rill helped Naomh Mairtin over­come New­town Blues in the Paddy Sheelan Cup quar­ter-fi­nal on Sun­day morn­ing.

The Monaster­boice out­fit made the short trip to New­foundwell where they edged out the hosts in what proved to be an en­ter­tain­ing and high-scor­ing en­counter.

The sides traded scores through­out the first half with Ciaran Downey and Robert Carr lead­ing the way for the Blues, while Conor Whe­lan was also in good form in front of the posts for the vis­i­tors. How­ever, it was a goal from Brian Ber­rill that gave the Mairtins the edge as they went in at the break lead­ing by 1-7 to 0-9.

The sec­ond half fol­lowed a sim­i­lar pat­tern as both teams con­tin­ued to pick off some im­pres­sive points to leave the out­come in the bal­ance up to the end. How­ever, once again the Mairtins made their most of their goal op­por­tu­nity as Conor Healy pounced to fire in a sec­ond and en­sure a three­p­oint win for his side.
