MINOR FOOTBALL LEAGUE RD 1
Na Fianna Minor Footballers opened their 2019 playing campaign with a very comfortable win against neighbours St Vincents in Rd 1 of the Div 1 League last Monday week in Daingean on a scoreline of 6-07 to 0-03. The opening 15 mins of the first half the rustiness of it being the first game of the year was clearly evident as Na Fianna playing with the strong breeze only managed a single point but for the next 15 mins Na Fianna got into gear scoring 4-05 without reply with the goals coming from Adam Mangan (2) & Jacob Beatty (2) so at the break Na Fianna were in control leading by 4-06 to Nil. Any hope of a comeback by St Vincents were quashed within 3 mins of the re-start as Mark Keeley & Adam Mangan fired in a goal apiece for Na Fianna. Thereafter with the result in the bag Na Fianna added just 1 more point as St Vincents did manage to break their duck with 3 points, 2 of which from frees straight in front of the posts.
NA FIANNA: James Nolan, David Carthy, Diarmuid Finneran, Dylan Cahill, Adam Strong, Ryan Dunne, Ryan Strong, David McElduff, Oisin Henchy, Mark Keeley (1-00) , Adam Mangan (3-02), Jacob Beatty (2-01), Morgan Tynan (0-04).
