AHANE GAA CLUB NOTES

Ahane travelled to Garryspillane on Wednesday evening to play in the Minor A County Championship. Ahane got off to a strong start with Kevin Morrissey getting a goal and Adam Murrihy getting a point from the puck out. The teams traded scores throughout the first half with a Garryspillane getting two goals in quick succession, they got their third goal of the game just before half time. The teams went on at half time on a score line of Ahane 1-05 Garryspillane 3-07. Again in the second half Ahane started the stronger with Adam getting four more points to add to his personal tally for the evening. However from there Garryspillane started to get on top and started to pop balls over the bar. The game ended on a score line of Ahane 1-14 Garryspillane 3-14. They say that goals win games and on Wednesday night that proved to be the case as Garryspillane ran out six point winners. Ahane Minors are out again on Tuesday 1st September against Cois Laoi Gaels in Mackey Park, throw in is at 6:30pm. Due to the current COVID-19 Guidelines there are no spectators allowed into the game but we will have updates on our twitter page.
Junior A Football
Ahane’s Junior Footballers travelled to Knockane on Thursday evening to play Crecora/Manister. Ahane started well and were only a point behind at the first water break, however Crecora/Manister started to get stronger and took their scoring opportunities better. At half time the score stood at Ahane 0-03 Crecora/Manister 1-06. Kevin Keenan the Ahane goalkeeper played a blinder throughout and made some fantastic saves. As the second half started Crecora/Manister added to their scores and began to pull away, in the end they proved to be just too strong for the Ahane team and they won the game out on a score line of Ahane 0-04 Crecora/Manister 2-13.
It was a busy week for the Junior footballers as they also travelled to Ballingarry to play Dromcollogher Broadford on Sunday evening. On a great evening weather wise for football both teams put in great performances. Ahane restored the pride in the green and gold jersey as they came out firing in all cylinders. As the game reached the first water break the score line was Ahane 0-01 Dromcollogher Broadford 1-02, Paul Darmody scored the Ahane point. Ahane however continued to plug away and when the referee blew the half time whistle it stood as Ahane 0-04 Dromcollogher Broadford 1-04 again Ahane got their scores from Paul Darmody, Ger Frawley, and Jamie Maguire. Midway through the second half and the game was still close with both sides getting scores and as the half was coming to an end Ahane were getting on top, however they ran out of time and the game finished on the score line of Ahane 0-10 Dromcollogher Broadford 1-10. Ahane’s scores came from Paul, Ger, Paddy Morrissey, Jamie and Evan Power. Ahane were unlucky in the end to come out on the wrong side of the result but Dromcollogher Broadford held strong and ground out the win.
