MINOR FOOTBALL MATCH 2003
Galtee Gaels 1 – 9 Blackrock 1 – 7
Galtee Gaels minor team had their first championship game of 2003 on 17th of July. Blackrock (Kilfinane) provided the opposition and Galtee Gaels had home advantage. Conditions were poor with a strong breeze upsetting play and the game was vigorously contested.
Mike O’Mahony played a captain’s part from his unusual midfield berth and scored the opening point. Blackrock took up the running with three points in a row. Galtee Gaels,
through the strong play of Paul Moriarty, Mike O’Mahony and Derek Gallahue around the middle, took the initiative with Eddie O’Gorman and Stephen Cahill points.
When the Blackrock keeper decided to advance on an extended solo run, he was dispossessed by Chris Noonan and Eddie O’Gorman lobbed a goal from 25 yards out. The former added a point but fortune smiled on Blackrock when the ball rebounded from the crossbar to the Galtee Gaels net. Galtee Gaels held a one point advantage at the break.
Twice, Galtee Gaels extended their lead to three points in the second half. Twice, Blackrock reduced their deficit to a single point. Eddie O’Gorman raised another white flag and the margin rested at two points with time up . Blackrock, down to fourteen men, needed a goal. They won a free, just outside the box. Galtee Gaels lined the goals and Donal Coakley made a notable save to clinch victory.
Galtee Gaels: Donal Coakley, Jamie Whelan, Pa Casey, Andy O’Mahony, Liam Lane, Paul Moriarty, Colm Moloney, Mike O’Mahony (0 – 1), Derek Gallahue (0 – 1), Eddie O’Gorman (1 – 2), Diarmuid McNamara (0 – 1), Stephen Cahill (0 – 1), Christy Noonan (0 – 1), Richie Fitzgerald and Diarmuid Walsh (0 – 2).
