Legan v Fr. Manning Gaels

ACFL Division 2

Legan 1-1 Fr. Manning Gaels 3-17


Our senior team continued their winning ways in the league with a comprehensive 3-17 to 1-1 victory over a battling Legan Sarsfields side. This was the last game to be played at Flood Park before it is refurbished. The Gaels dominated from the first whistle to the last with the Cassidy brothers Martin and David particularly to the fore. The first twenty minutes were not as comfortable as the Gaels would have liked, with many missed chances and handling errors giving reason for concern. These concerns were alleviated when the powerful Aaron Quinn raided forward from wing back to slot in an excellent goal after receiving a tremendous pass from Mark Duffy. This move ended the game as a contest and the half time score was 1-10 to 0-1. The Gaels added two further goals in the second half from Martin Cassidy and Pauric Gill and ran out comfortable 22 point winners despite conceding a sloppy goal midway through the second half
