Sarsfields see off Mullaghbawn

Sarsfields 0-15 Mullaghbawn 1-10

Sarsfields produced a superb second half display to storm to victory over Mullaghbawn and begin their championship with a win.

Brendan Hughes’ side trailed by eight just before half time, but turned things around in the second half.

Mullaghbawn got off to a flying start, firing over the first three points of the game, all from the boot of Eddie English.

English opened his account with an early free before following up with two points from open play.

Michael Stevenson replied for the home side on the 12th minute, before captain Niall Kerr narrow the gap to one.

But Peter McDonnell’s side took complete control of the scoreboard and rattled off 1-5 without reply in the next ten minutes.

Gerard McCann started the scoring spree before Niall Loye raised the first green flag of the day, firing low to the net.

English added to his ever-growing personal tally, while Shea Loye and Adam McDonnell also split the posts.

Callum McGibbon slotted over two dead ball efforts to narrow the gap for Sarsfields at the break. 0-4 to 1-7.

Momentum switched entirely in the second half as the High Moss men, aided by the breeze, found another gear.

McGibbon claimed two more, either side of a Patrick McAteer free, while Paul McGeown nailed a brace.

English and McGeown exchanged efforts before Thomas McAlinden split the posts for his first score of the afternoon.

McGeown and English cancelled each other out once again as Sarsfields took control in the final ten minutes, hitting the last four scores.

Eamon McGeown began to dominate around the middle while full forward Paul added 0-2 to his haul.

Stevenson was on hand for a second score while the final piece of action fell to Thomas McAlinden, who raised the last white flag of the day.
