BEN BAGS A BUNDLE
Keeper turned poacher Ben Thornton helps himself to 4-1 as Gaeil Colmcille/Loughcrew Gaels have a comfortable win away to Kildalkey on Sunday morning.
A polished performance by the North Meath outfit ensured they came away with the points from Kildalkey this morning. By have time we were 1-9 to 1pt to the good with Eoin Smith scoring 5 and one each from Luke Mckeown, Ross McDonnell, Daniel Callary and Ben Thornton.
The lads went for the jugular in the 2nd half and found the net 6 more time with 2 from Ross McDonnell, 3 from Ben Thornton and a great finish from Cillian Burke.
Kildalkey didn’t lay down and scored 2-2 in the last quarter. While the goals registered on the scoreboard it was the solid defence that supplied the ammunition, Evan Flanagan wasn’t giving an inch to his opponent while Evan Connell cleared his lines on numerous occasions. The half back line of Callum Reilly, Mark Halpin and Rory Smith were solid while Michael Gormley and Dillon Glynn worked tirelessly in the engine room. Conor Tunney in goals was finding his target with every puck out. Jack Hand was supplying the inside forwards with plenty ball which yielded white flags. Every good team needs a strong bench and when called upon, Cillian Burke, Daniel Callary, Anthony Gallagher and Conor Larkin strengthened things up to seal the victory for Gaeil Colmcille/Loughcrew Gaels.
Team: Conor Tunney, Evan Flanagan, Evan Connell, Callum Reilly, Mark Halpin, Rory Smith, Dillon Glynn, Michael Gormley, Ross McDonnell, Eoin Smith, Jack Hand, Luke Mckeown, Ben Thornton, Daniel Callary, Cillian Burke, Anthony Gallagher, Conor Larkin.
This result means that the u13 Roinn A,C and D teams all won their Round 4 matches, a great weekend for this hardworking group who are already focused on round 5.
