Aghaderg Senior Footballers Off to a Winning Start

Date Filed: 01 May 2022

Aghaderg Senior Footballers made the trip to Glasdrumman on Friday evening for their first league fixture of 2022.

The game started at a very fast pace with both sides getting into good scoring positions. Two quick points from Aghaderg were followed by a well taken goal by Joe O’Kane who hit the net from a tight angle after spotting that the Glasdrumman goalkeeper was off his line. Glasdrumman worked hard to get back into contention and although they came forward at pace, they were continuously under pressure by a hard-working Aghaderg back line.

Aghaderg looked dangerous themselves when going forward and Niall Lennon finished off a nice passing move with another good goal. After a quick counter-attack, Glasdrumman replied with a goal of their own late in the first half to leave one score in it at halftime.

Halftime score: Glassdrumman 1-4 Aghaderg 2-4.

The second half saw the visiting Aghaderg team begin to dominate more with Louis Murray and Cailum Meara working hard in midfield to disrupt the Glasdrumman attacks. The Aghaderg backline also won a lot of possession and began carrying it forward with purpose with some great runs by Ryan Donnelly in particular. Aghaderg went on to outscore Glasdrumman by 7 points to 3 in the second half including fine long range efforts from Chrissy McEvoy and Kelin Doyle.

Final score Glasdrumman 1-7 Vs Aghaderg 2-11.

The hard work the boys have put in during a long pre-season was evident in this performance and it was great to get the league off to a winning start.

Well done to all involved.
