Gaels find ex­tra gear

Drogheda Independent - - SPORT -

DUN­DALK Gaels made it three wins from three in Di­vi­sion 2A when they de­feated Kilk­er­ley Emmets on Fri­day night.

In what was a com­pet­i­tive af­fair, the Dun­dalk men did just enough to se­cure the win that keeps them on of the ta­ble.

Kilk­er­ley also went into the game with a 100 per cent record but also on the back of their Intermedia­te Cham­pi­onship Fi­nal de­feat and it was per­haps no sur­prise that they were un­able to lift them­selves suf­fi­ciently.

The first half was an even af­fair with Tadgh McE­naney and Shane Len­non on tar­get for the home side but the Gaels kept them­selves in the game with a goal from Sean McCann as they went in at the break level at 1-5 to 0-8.

It was a sim­i­lar story in the sec­ond half with Kilk­er­ley giv­ing them­selves hope with a goal from McE­naney. How­ever, the vis­i­tors found an ex­tra gear when re­quired and points from Dylan McKe­own, Eanna McAr­dle, McCann and Luke Mur­ray helped them over the line.
