Second half goals see reserves take the points
Under 21B Championship
27 August 2013
Aodh Ruadh 2-11
Páirc Aodh Rua, Killygordon
Aodh Ruadh under 21s claimed a notable win last Wednesday, defeating Carndonagh on their home patch by 2-11 to 1-10. It's the club's first win at this grade in eight years. It wasn't made easy for them either, learning only as they set out for the Inishowen venue that the game had been pushed back to 8pm, leaving the Ballyshannon men unlikely to see home again much before midnight. In any event Aodh Ruadh approached the game with some brio and made light of the circumstances to lead by 1-8 to 0-3 at half time, David McGurrin with the goal. The visitor's maintained the pressure in the second half with Johnny Gethins hitting a second goal fresh from the bench. Only a late green flag for Carn took a little of the gloss off the final scoreline. The side now face Buncrana in the under 21 B quarter-finals this Wednesday in MacCumhaill Park at 6.30pm. This is the first of two big championship clashes with the Scarvey side so we hope to see a big support down in Ballybofey for this one.
