Aodh Ruadh do enough to get past Burt reserves
Division 3 Reserve Football League
19 May 2012
Aodh Ruadh 1-14
Father Tierney Park
Aodh Ruadh reserves played within themselves as they went to a four point 1-14 to 1-10 win over Burt last Saturday. Ballyshannon had been threatening goal for a much of the match, but if finally came from substitute Garrett Blake who followed up a near miss minutes earlier with a convincing drive to the net. Michael Ward and Ryan Patton ran a tight-fisted defence, not withstanding the bizarre sight of a Burt attacker who was barely fit to walk due to an ankle injury. Stephen McGrath had a superb game at centre half back and made it extremely difficult for Burt to get any forward momentum. Darren Gethins, Turlough McIntyre and and substitute Matthew 'Turkey' Thompson ensured the homesters had a secure midfield platform. Michael McNeely distinguished himself with an aggressive performance at half forward while Steven Perry finished the game with a slew of well taken points.
