Woodlands House Hotel County Premier Junior A Football R4
Athea 0- 06
Game took place in Ballyhahill last Friday 25th August were NCW were coming into this Round 4 game with two draws and a win under their belt facing an Athea team without a win so far. NCW played against the breeze in the first half and started off playing the better football. The movement and slick passing resulted in in early scores from Niall McAuliffe (2), Mike O’Leary and Ethan Hurley. Our midfield pairing of Joey Healy and Lee Woulfe were on top and dominating well in the first half. Further scores from Brian Hurley and Lee Woulfe kept the scoreboard ticking over. NCW were on top in most areas, but an inspired last 10 mins by Athea enabled them to put 3 points on the score board - 1 from a free and 2 from long-range to finish out the half with scoreboard reading NCW 7pts - Athea 4pts. In the second half NCW goaled after two minutes when a long ball from Niall McAuliffe ended up in the net. Athea hit a purple patch and dominated around the middle third for a period of 10 minutes, but NCW defence stood firm only coughed up two points. NCW weathered the storm and dominated the remaining 15 minutes scoring five points with some great long-range scores from Niall McAuliffe, Brian Hurley, Ben Finnegan, and Jack O’Connor. Overall, a well-deserved win for NCW who played a nice brand of fast attacking football. Great credit to Ballyhahill GAA for the pitch which was in excellent order and installing a new scoreboard.
Team; Andrew Ruddle, Oisín Brennan, Colm Foley, Jody Woulfe, Donnacha Woods, Brian O’Doherty, Mike O’Leary, Joey Healy, Lee Woulfe, Brian Hurley, Niall McAuliffe, Jack Duggan, Aaron Mullane, Ethan Hurley, Ben Finnegan.
