John Mitchels GAA News, May 19

Posted by

We are away to Ardfert in Round 2 June 21st.
John Mitchels 1-12
Castleisland Desmonds 1-14
We started well scoring the first three points playing some very good football and should have gone in at half time more than three points in front. Half time scores John Mitchels 0-8 Desmonds 0-5.
The second half saw Desmonds score 1-6 without reply in the first quarter and this was the story of the half. We came into the game more in the last quarter but never looked like getting back on terms. Robert O’Sullivan with a goal well into injury time still had us two points behind. Final scores John Mitchels 1-12 Castleisland Desmonds 1-14.

All roads led to Currow last Wednesday night for our county league final against Castleisland Desmonds. This game was a thriller from start to finish. In what was a topsy turvy affair we got off the perfect start with early goals from Mikey Kelliher and Tyrese Flaherty and Darrion Hurley and led by 3-2 to 0-0.

However Desmonds rallied strongly and responded with 3 quick fire goals of their own and the sides were soon level . Desmonds dominated for the remainder of the half but a Conor Morrisson goal kept us in it and we went in at half time a point down 5-2 to4-4.
The second half saw us concede goals again early but we got a grip of midfield with Ryan Ward and Kevin Williams coming in to the game strongly and Mikey Kelliher getting through an amount of work up front.

Our hard work was rewarded with another Tyrese Flaherty goal and from there we kicked on with some great point taking. Our backs led by the ever dependable Graham Hudson and Tadgh Broderick snuffed out the Castleisland threat and Dylan O Se in goals pulled off some fine saves to leave us winners on a score line of 5-15 to 6-6. Kerry Coiste Na nog Chairman Tom Keane presented Captain Kevin Williams with the trophy afterwards to the delight of the huge travelling army of Mitchels supporters.

The panel on the night was Donie Dillane, Shane McCarthy, Ross Sugrue, Conor Morrison-O’Brien, Kevin Williams, Ryan Ward, Mikey Kelliher, Dara Sheridan, Tyreese Flaherty, Dylan O’Brien, Craig O’Brien, Cian Barden, Padraig White, Conor Fitzmaurice, James Sheehan, Dylan O’Shea, Sean Gannon, Stephen Bowler, Graham Hudson, James O’Connor, Tadgh Broderick, Padraig O Callaghan, Alex O Se and Darrion Hurley.
We will have a week’s break next week and begin preparations for Feile the following week.
