Sarsfields GFC 0-14

Doohamlet O’Neill’s GFC 0-7

A cold but bright Sunday afternoon saw a revisit to the meeting of Sarsfields GFC and Doohamlet O’Neill’s GFC.

The game began with two exciting opening points from Sarsfields’ mid fielder Eamon McGeown, with one point returned from O’Neill’s Conor Marray.

Sarsfields were to lead much of the scores in the first half, with Johnny Reynolds setting up Niall Kerr and Johnny shooting an impressive 40 yard score with the outside of his left foot. Richard Stevenson added three points, also setting up Thomas McAlinden before Doohamlet’s Conor Marray added one to the scoreboard to end the first half.

With substitutions including Sarsfields bringing on Sean Skelton and Darren McEvoy the match started quickly with opening scores from Johnny Reynolds and Doohamlet’s Barry Maginn.

Sarsfields maintained the upper hand against the Monaghan side with Eamon McGeown and Thomas McAlinden ensuring the Hoops side kept O’Neill’s far from levelling the sides. Doohamlet added to the score with points from Conor Marray and sub Jamie Walsh. but it was to be Sarsfields’ sub Emmet Murray who added the last score to end an enjoyable day of football.
