League Victory & Match Report
Our intermediate team maintained their 100% record in the league with an eight point victory over St Anthony’s Reading. The team made the midweek journey to Greenford on a sunny and warm Tuesday evening but both teams were slow to start with some wayward shooting.
Points from John Coyle and Caolan Conroy amongst others had Éire Óg in a 0-5 to 0-4 lead at half time.
Éire Óg began the second half much the stronger team and after a goalmouth scramble, Darragh Cotter smashed the ball to the net. Further points from Conroy and Stephen O’Keeffe put us into a comfortable lead before a long-range effort from one of St Anthony’s marksmen left the final score Éire Óg 1-10 St Anthony’s 0-5. Best for Éire Óg were Conor Kearney, Richard Murphy and Daniel Roarty in a game where the defence kept the team in the ascendancy throughout with their turnovers and distribution.
