Division 1A & 1B Match Reports – Week Four

Division 1A – Clann Eireann 0-8 Maghery 1-7

An early Matthew Mackle goal proved the decisive score as Maghery picked up their first win of the season.

Mackle’s three-pointer was the first score of the day, after Eoghan Mulholland saved Conor Forker’s penalty.

Mulholland had quite the game, racing forward to score from open play during the second half.

That score from the Clann Eireann netminder levelled the score, but the hosts could never get their noses ahead.

Stefan Forker swung over a super score, cancelled out by Dan McCarthy. Conor Forker nailed the final score of the half with Maghery ahead 1-3 to 0-3 at the break.

The opening minutes of the second half were all about Jack Conlon. His brace narrowed the gap to a single point.

But after the brilliant start, Conlon picked up a black card and spent the next ten minutes on the sideline.

Mulholland levelled, while Ciaran Lappin and Cushnahan (free) traded points with Ruairi McDonald and McConville.

A third from Cushnahan (free) put Maghery in control while Stefan Forker powered over the final score of the game.
