First win for Malachis

Mid Louth Independent - - SPORT -

NAOMH Malachi picked up their first win of the Di­vi­sion 3 cam­paign when they proved too strong for Cuchulainn Gaels on Sun­day af­ter­noon.

The Court­bane side suf­fered the dis­ap­point­ment of los­ing to Sean McDer­motts in mid­week but re­sponded well by claim­ing a 13-point vic­tory with Ro­nan Greene scor­ing the only goal of the game in the sec­ond pe­riod.

The Mals went into this game as favourites to pick up the points and they quickly got on top of their op­po­nents in Omeath. With Col­lie Rooney lead­ing the way in terms of scor­ing the vis­i­tors went in at the break with a 0-9 to 0-2 lead.

The hosts could have been much closer but were guilty of kick­ing seven first half wides.

The Gaels re­stricted their op­po­nents in the sec­ond half but the Mals were al­ways on course for a vic­tory that was con­firmed when Greene found the back of the net.
