Súil Siar   Senior County League Division 4: April 2011:  We had a hard earned two point win over a fine Scartaglin outfit on Saturday evening last. Played in ideal conditions, in glorious sunshine, Scartaglin threw everything at Na Gaeil, especially in the first half. They tackled en masse and kept our forwards on a tight leash. Scartaglin were first on the scoreboard with a point from play in the first minute. We swopped wides before the home team went two up with another point from play. Following some great defending by our backs, David Culloty caught a high ball at centre field, went on a trademark solo and pointed from far out. Paul Daly added to our tally, to equalise, with a well a worked point from the wing from a well placed assist from Ian McCarthy. Scartaglin went three up with two points from play and one from a free. Paul Daly got our final scores of the half, one from play and one free while Scartaglin had a pointed free to leave half time Na Gaeil: 0 – 04; Scartaglin:  0 – 06. Dylan Seymore and Eoin O’Neill were introduced at half time and changed the game. Dylan made his mark in the second minute when he shot to the back of the net following a pinpoint assist from Ian McCarthy who had done excellent work out on the wing to keep the ball. Eoin O’Neill followed with a point from play following a long solo run from the half back line. We got the next three scores, a point from play per Michael Griffin, Ian McCarthy and a pointed free from Paul Daly to leave us four ahead after twenty minutes. Eamonn O’Neill swapped points with the home team who at this stage were camped in our half with about four minutes to go. They pulled back two but the excellent commitment of our backs, where Dylan Brazil, Eoin O’Neill and David Ross put in a huge effort got us the points. David Culloty at centre field and Ian McCarthy and Paul Daly had excellent games. Panel: Aidan Quirke, Eoin Doody, Dylan Brazil, David Ross, Niall Lucey, Colm Lyons, Donie Rooney, Dan O’Connor, David Culloty, Eamon O’Neill, Michael Griffin, Ian McCarthy, Seamie O’Neill, Jamie Loham, Paul Daly, Eoin O’Neill, Dylan Seymour, Daniel Lucey, Donal Moynihan, John Reen, Darragh Collins, Sean Herlihy, Enda Sexton.
