A League 1A: St. Peter’s, Dunboyne 1-08 Gaeil Colmcille 0-12

With the blanket cancellation of the Round 2 fixtures, the gap between the 1st and 3rd rounds felt like an eternity for match goers. Luckily enough this afternoons game passed a pitch inspection and the football could continue as planned.

Kells made two personal changes from the Ratoath draw with Paulie Tormay coming in for Seamus Mattimoe while Fionn Ferguson replaced Ryan Farnham in the starting fifteen. The hosts opened the scoring inside the opening 2 minutes of the game but Fionn Ferguson cancelled the score out when he cut inside and shot over with his left foot.

St. Peter’s regained the lead in the 10th minute and once again Kells squared things up when Beano Hanlon pointed two minutes later. The sides traded the next two scores with Ferguson getting his second to leave the score at three points each at the 15 minute mark.

Fionn Reilly, playing at Centre Forward took advantage of a sloppy pass from the Dunboyne defence and point to restore the Gaeils lead. As with the flow of the game, Dunboyne drew level once more but it was Kells who had the final say of half when Fionn Reilly struck over his second point of the game to see The Gaeils lead 0-05 to 0-04

Gaeil Colmcille got their second half off to a perfect start with two points in quick succession with Ferguson and Hanlon pointing for the Kells men. Mistakes were creeping into the game on both sides but Dunboyne managed to get the next two scores leaving them one point down as the game headed into the final quarter.

Barry Farrelly was called from his goalkeeping duties in the 45th and 46th minute to add two points to Gaeil Colmcille’s tally and Farrellys points were equally matched by his save from point blank range to keep Kells in the lead. Dunboyne did add a point to see the score 0-09 to 0-07 in favour of the visitors with just over 10 minutes remaining.

Substitute Ryan Farnham who replaced Ferguson got in on the act and he found himself in the right place at the right time to keep Gaeil Colmcille three points clear, Fionn Reilly added a third point to his tally when he saw his effort come off the upright and over the bar, this was followed by a Jonny Quigley point to leave distance between the sides for the first time in the game.

St. Peter’s did get their goal in the 57th minute and a pointed free one minute later set up a nervy finish but some calm play by the Kells backs, playing keep ball secured the two points for Gaeil Colmcille and see them register their first win of the league campaign.
