NHL Roinn 3B FINAL Sligo 3-17 v Leitrim 2-16 mainnews

The county hurlers were back in Bekan almost 19 months after last years appearance at the venue where they lost this final in 2019 to Longford. It was a cold and wet day in 2019 but 2020 surprisingly for October had a better hurling day for the final where Sligo hit more wides than points scored - an amazing statistic  . This was also the first game under the new county hurling management team of Padraig Mannion and his selectors after the resignations of Daithí Hand and his team. This also meant there were a few high profile player absentees in particular scorer in chief Keith Raymond. On the other side there was a number of new names in the squad and the subs bench along with the team fitness proved vital in the closing stages.

Sligo hit 19 wides and the Leitrim keeper gave a man of the match display with a number of top class saves with one in particular in the second half absolutely stunning. The physical presence of Conor Beirne and Poinard in the Leitrim full forward line caused havoc as did the Moreton brothers with their all action style. 

Sligo got off to a good start with a Gerard O'Kelly Lynch point from play within seconds of the throw in and he followed with a free two minutes later. Ben Murray and Gavin O'Hagan equalised for Leitrim. Sligo has a number of good chances at this time for goals but none were taken. Debutant Conor Hannify got his first score for Sligo in the 12th minute but O'Hagan replied and at the water break Leitrim lead by one following a James McNabola free. In an eventful 90 seconds, Leitrim found the net when Beirne fielded turned and passed to Poinard who drove to the net. This was quickly followed by a O'Hagan free and from the subsequent puck out GOKL broke and headed for goal and drove across the keeper to the net. In the 26th minute Eoin Comerford got a goo long range point but Leitrim struck back when a long range effort by McNabola made its way to the Sligo net via a deflection or deft touch from Beirne. Beirne pointed directly afterwards. Hannify and O'Kelly Lynch responded for Sligo. 

Ronan Cox came on for Sligo at this point adding a more physical presence around the middle with great tenacity. It was blow for blow before the half time break with Mikey Gordon and Finnian Cawley scoring from play and Tony O'Kelly Lynch with a free being cancelled out by two from O'Hagan and Colm Moreton making the score at the whistle 2-9 v 1-9 to Leitrim. 

Conor Griffin moved into full forward for the second half and right away it paid dividends with the first score of the half. GOKL got his second goal in the second minute of the half, again striking across the goal into the side netting. Leitrim responded and hit a puprle patch where they out hurled and out muscled Sligo with 4 points up to the water break from O'Hagan and Enda Moreton with only a 65 from O'Kelly Lynch in response. Daniel Rolston entered for his senior debut and added a stronger presence in front of the full back line. Ruairí Brennan and Michael Munnelly also entered the fray in the 22nd minute with both providing very good displays. When Colm Moreton scored a point after throwing off two defenders in the 24th minute it looked like it would be Leitrims day. However their half forward line were beginning to look spent along with Sligo running more with the sliotar in hand and off the shoulder it began to change. Michael Munnelly scored a point after a good run down the left side of the field which he popped over from an acute angle and in the 30th minute the goal that would drive onto victory arrived. 

A Leitrim puckout was won on the Sligo 65, a few short passes and Mark Hannify went on a solo run that ended almost 100m later on the Leitrim goal line with a handpass to Gerard O'Kelly Lynch who deftly kicked under the Leitrim keeper.  Leitrim did respond with another O'Hagan free but at this stage there was going to be only one winner with some smart crossfield passes resulting in Hannify , Ronan Cox and Cawley all scoring points from play to give Sligo the victory and promotion to Roinn 3A for the 2021 season.

Captain Niall Feehily received the cup on behalf of his team.

Scorers: 

Sligo - Gerard O'Kelly Lynch 3-4 (1f 2x65), Tony O'Kelly Lynch 0-3 (3f), Conor Hannify 0-2, Finnian Cawley 0-2, Eoin Comerford, Mikey Gordon, Conor Griffin, Michael Munnelly, Mark Hannify, Ronan Cox 0-1 each.

Leitrim - Gavin O'Hagan 0-9 (6f), Conor Beirne 1-2, Peter Poinard 1-0, James McNabola 0-2(1f), Colm Moreton 0-2, Ben Murray, Enda Moreton 0-1 each

NFL D4 Rd 6: Sligo 2-15 v Carlow 2-19 mainnews

The National leagues resumed with Sligo making the long journey to Carlow on Saturday. When the leagues were suspended Sligo knew that two wins from two would result in promotion to division 3. During lockdown Carlow manager Turlough O'Brien stepped down and was subsequently replaced by ex Sligo manager Neil Carew meaning his first official game in charge was against a team where he knew most players very well. Last year Sligo lost in Carlow where a slow start and the suffocating defence of the Carlow men saw us go down in a very low scoring game. Both teams were relegated and had a lot to play for here with regard to getting promoted at the first attempt. Unlike last year this was a high scoring rollercoast ride throughout with the result in doubt till the 6th minute of additional time in the second half. 

Sean Murphy made his competitive start in the Sligo jersey and was involved in the first minute as Carlows Paul Broderick kicked over and it was the fifth minute when Pat Hughes ran out onto a ball and turned and flung over the first of Sligo scores for the evening. A minute late Sligo went in front when Mikey Gordon bore down on goal from 45m and no defender met him, leaving him to drive to the roof of the net. Carlow responded with points from Foley and Dunphy and were dominating the kickouts of both sides with a serious physical presence. Hughes brought us back level with another good run, turn and point but at the water break further points from Broderick and Jordan Morrisey left Sligo in arrears. 

Sligo hit the next four points after the break from Gaughan (1f) getting two and Seán Carrabine and Paddy O'Connor to put Sligo back in front. Broderick from play and a free split by a Paddy O'Connor free left Sligo in front by 1 at the break 1-7 v 0-9.

Broderick hit another point from another free but Red Óg Murphy hit a purple patch and scored a wonder point from close on the endline after breaking two tackles. Pat Hughes who had a very good game until injury meant he had to leave the fray intercepted a short Carlow kickout and two quick handpasses had Murphy driving at goal and rifling to the top left of the net. Hughes from the next kickout hit his third from play to put Sligo up by 6 with 7 minutes played in the half. If Sligo held on at this stage it felt like they would have won out however Ross Dunphy hit an unstoppable shot to the top corner of the net when surrounded by three defenders from the next play to cut the lead to three. 

Gerard O'Kelly Lynch finished a good move with a point in the 9th minute. By the water break it was level with three from Broderick (1f) and a Dunphy score. The last quarter of the game was up and down the field with both sides looking like they had it won. John Francis Carr, Barry Gorman and debutant Ryan Feehily entered the fray as did David Quinn close to the finish. Carlow went up by three points going into the six minutes of injury time with  a point from Chris Blake and a goal from Conor Crowley who had just come onto the field when a kickout went a distance but all of Sligo seemed wrongfooted. Carlow went to get the insurance point and Pat Hughes managed to get his fingertips to a point attempt that allowed Eamonn Kilgannon to knock it down from over the bar. Hughes appeared to sustain a shoulder injury and with all our subs on the field we finished out with 14. The team showed great grit to come back and three Liam Gaughan frees had levelled the game but Carlows superiority of the kickout proved decisive with Paul Broderick and Darragh Foley hitting two winning points in less than a minute to take the win and also to take a chance of promotion out of Sligo hands.

Limerick make the trip to Markievicz Park next weekend.

Scorers - 
Sligo - Liam Gaughan  0-5 (4f), Red Óg Murphy 1-2, Pat Hughes 0-3, Mikey Gordon 1-0, Paddy O'Connor 0-3 (2f), Seán Carrabine, Gerard O'Kelly Lynch 0-1 each

Carlow - Paul Broderick 0-11(5f), Ross Dunphy 1-2, Conor Crowley 1-0, Chris Blake 0-2, Darragh Foley, Jordan Morrisey 0-1 each

Sligo  - Eamonn Kilgannon, Nathan Mullen, Eddie McGuinness, Seán Murphy, Darragh Cummins, Paul McNamara, Gerard O'Kelly Lynch, Paddy O'Connor(capt), Paul Kilcoyne, Mikey Gordon, Conor Griffin, Seán Carrabine, Red Óg Murphy, Pat Hughes, Liam Gaughan

Geevagh GAA Club notes clubnotes

This week’s notes should have included two match reports, our Senior Ladies bid for their 2nd Connacht Championship crown & our U.12 Boys semi-final championship game. However, these games were not to be after The GAA firstly suspended all games bar Inter County and secondly a countrywide Level 3 Covid restrictions was implemented from Tuesday last.

Our senior ladies are still permitted to train as normal & our U.12’s are training away also, both crews adhering to the Covid guidelines. Hopefully these games will be played in the not too distant future.

The Leinster branch of the LGFA have suspended their provincial club finals until January 2021, so it will be interesting to see what the Connacht branch do.

 

Congratulations to all our club players who received their First Holy Communion on Monday night last.

Sympathy is extended to the family, relatives and friends of the late Michael Lavin, Creevagh.

 

Great credit to all our club teams & mentors who represented the club over this difficult season, hoping 2021 will be a little less stressful from a regulatory point of view.

Thanks for your understanding and patience in supporting all of the public health guidance over the last number of months.
