Division 3A & 3B Match Reports – Week Ten

Division 3A – Middletown 0-13 St Michael’s 1-6

Middletown picked up their seventh win of the Division 3A league campaign as they saw off St Michael’s on Wednesday night. Four-points was the difference between the teams when the referee called for the ball.

Middletown shot out of the traps with three-points in quick succession through Sean Og McGuinness (2) and Charlie McArdle. Aidan Davidson (45) replied for the visitors, but his effort was cancelled out by Johnny Trainor.

McGuinness added his third before St Michael’s were handed a huge lifeline when Emmet O’Malley converted a penalty. Chris McCann and Fionnan O’Braonain scored for the hosts while Benny Davidson hit the final score of the half, leaving it 0-7 to 1-2 at the break.

Marty Maguire and Conor Davidson traded scores at the start of the second half before Trainor hit a brace. Davidson along with John Joe Powell exchanged pointed efforts with O’Braonain as Newtown stayed in touch.

McGuinness extended Middletown’s advantage to five before St Michael’s knocked over the final score of the evening through O’Malley. That left Middletown as four-point winners on the night, 0-13 to 1-6.
