Senior Football: O’Gara Cup: St. Dominics 3-9 Fuerty 0-14 St. Dominics secured another two points when they overcame Fuerty on Sunday last in Mulhern Park. Fuerty aided by the breeze started well and led by three points to nil after ten minutes with points from Lyons, Brennan and Leahy. Dominics settled after this and a Conor Fallon free was followed by a fisted Michael Finneran goal and a further point from Eoin McCormack. Leahy and Lyons added further points for Fuerty to which Conor Fallon replied with a pointed free to leave it 1-3 to 0-5 to the Knockcroghery men at the break. An excellent Peter Leahy point on the resumption levelled matters but then Dominics with Malachy Gately back in charge of his home Club took control and points from Finneran, Fallon, sub Kenny Beirne and a cracking goal from the impressive Tommy Hurley opened up a six point gap for Dominics by the 42nd minute. Fuerty rallied and points from Lyons, Brennan and Ward narrowed the gap to three but another Tommy Hurley goal and a Michael Finneran point restored a comfortable seven point lead with five minutes remaining. The final minutes was end to end stuff with both sides using their substitutes and Fuerty did rally well with points from Brennan (2), Lyons (2) and Darragh Mullen but Dominics who were well in control added points from C. Fallon and C. Hunt to secure a deserved victory.
