St Dominics 4-7 – St Faithleachs 2-5. St Dominic’s played St Faithleachs on Friday 1st April. Playing against a very strong breeze in the 1st half, the team managed to keep in touch ending the half 4 points down. At the start of the second half, a couple of quick goals by Keith Coyle turned the game around in Dominic’s favour. Best for St Dominic’s were Michael Byrne, Anthony O’Riordan, Shaun McGloin, Liam Kenny, David Finnerty & Martin McDonnell.
Our next game is at home on Sunday 10th April v’s Tulsk.
On Thursday 31st March St Dominics travelled to play a strong Boyle team. Dominics started the brighter and went ahead taking some excellent scores and leading by 4 points at half time. Boyle came out more determined and had a good spell of scoring getting in front by 7 points. The lads put in a huge effort and got back to within 2 points with 5 minutes of normal time. However Boyle were fresher and their strength paid off, finishing with 2 late goals. Final score Boyle 6-15 St. Dominics 6-9. Well done to both teams on some great football.
