MILFORD V NAOMH BRID

Seniors and Reserves travelled to Milford on Saturday evening for the last leg in the championship groups. Milford secured an early goal in the opening minutes of the match which gave them an air of confidence however, lots of missed opportunities and wide balls saw the first half come to a close with Naomh Brid in the lead thanks to a late goal from Sean Rooney. As the second half commenced Gearoid Gallagher scored a point from free, one of eight points scored by the Mullinasole man on the day. The game ended in a draw with a final score of Milford 3-05, Naomh Brid 1-11.

From the start the Senior game promised to be an intense, fast paced game. Milford secured the opening score of the game with a quick point which was quickly answered by a point from Gary Mc Cafferty. The first half was quite low scoring as the whistle blew to Milford 0-04, Naomh Brid 0-03. In the first ten minutes of the second half it looked like MIlford were ripping ahead with them scoring 1-02 and it looked like they were a sure bet for the next stage of the championship. However, the Naomh Brid men thought differently by sailing the ball over the bar but it was a cracking goal from David Walsh that saw us level with the Milford men. After a point from Gary Mc Cafferty saw Naomh Brid in the lead for the first time in the game. The game closed with the scoreboard reading Milford 1-07 Naomh Brid 1-10. Great win for the lads and securing them a place in the next stage of the championship.
