Ballyshannon extend winning run to eight

Senior Division 3
28 May 2016
Letterkenny Gaels 1-10
Aodh Ruadh 1-15
Páirc na nGael

Aodh Ruadh's winning run to the season continued last Saturday when the seniors travelled to Letterkenny and overcame the Gaels on a scoreline of 1-10 to 1-15. The visitors opened with five points from Johnny Gethins, Diarmaid McInerney, Conor Patton and a brace from Michael 'Sticky' Ward. Letterkenny rallied after that, but David McGurrin added two more scores to leave a point in at the break with the scores pegged at 1-3 to 0-7. A point from David Dolan and poachers goal from McInerney followed by a point from Oisín Roper gave Ballyshannon the perfect start to the new half. The hosts fought hard to get back into the game, but Aodh Ruadh had enough in hand to see out the win with insurance scores from David Dolan and Pauric Patton seeing them take full points. That result puts Aodh Ruadh five points clear at the top of the division three table.
