Drogheda Independent - - SPORT -


NA­VAN O’MA­HONY’S fin­ished stronger to take the hon­ours in the B Foot­ball League Di­vi­sion 2 de­cider in Castle­town on Fri­day.

There was lit­tle to choose be­tween the sides for most of the hour, but it was the town side who made cer­tain of vic­tory in the clos­ing stages with a scor­ing burst that yielded 1-2.

O’Ma­hony’s were ahead by three points in the early stages be­fore hav­ing to set­tle for a 0-5 to 0-4 lead at half-time.

Eoin Fin­negan (two), Ed­ward Meade and Alan Mul­vany were the Se­neschal­stown scor­ers in the open­ing half.

Two points from half-time sub­sti­tute James Con­lon had Se­neschal­stown ahead shortly af­ter the restart. The sides were level on three oc­ca­sions in that third quar­ter be­fore Fin­negan’s fourth point left Se­neschal­stown ahead en­ter­ing the fi­nal quar­ter.

Four suc­ces­sive points gave O’Ma­hony’s the edge, though, and while Fin­negan and Jonathan Gilse­nan replied with points for the Yel­low Furze out­fit they were un­able to gain par­ity at any stage af­ter that.

The late goal put the is­sue be­yond doubt, though the win­ners were some­what flat­tered by their six-point mar­gin of vic­tory. SE­NESCHAL­STOWN: Keith Wa­ters; Ro­nan Con­neely, Dy­lan Doyle, Fionn Gal­laghar Hall; Neil Darby, Kevin Casey, Colin Glee­son; Ger­ard McKendry, Robert Ruddy; Bren­dan Lynch, Alan Mul­vany 0-1, Sean Carey; Dy­lan Keat­ing 0-2, Ed­ward Meade 0-1, Eoin Fin­negan 0-5. Subs: Ryan O’Dowd for Carey, James Con­lon 0-2 for Meade, Jo­hathan Gilse­nan 0-2 for Lynch, Adam O’Mara for Fin­negan, Damien Sheri­dan for Ruddy, Dar­ragh Keogh for Doyle.
