Na Galloglaigh continued their fine away form this season with a very good win over Cloughaneely in Falcarragh on Saturday night. In horrendous conditions it was Cloughaneely who started brightest registering the first score but in the 3rd minute, and Na Galloglaighs first attack of note, Gary Merritt hammered to the net from a tight angle. Cloughaneely responded well to go a point ahead before on 12 minutes Na Galloglaigh got a huge slice of luck when an underhit David Curley effort was spilled by the Cloughaneely keeper into his own net to leave the score 0-4 to 2-0. BnaG got further good fortune right on the stroke of half time when Cloughaneely had a man sent off for kicking Christopher Barrett on the ground with the score 0-5 to 2-4. The 14 men of Cloughaneely responded very very well after the break and closed the gap to just 3 points, but when the pressure was really on in the middle third of the half the boys answered back with 3 of their own put 6 between the sides. Cloughaneely threw everything they could at the boys but 2 top top class saves from Caolan Mc Gettigan late in the game saw the boys emerge with a hard earned win, 0-10 to 2-9.

Cloughaneely 1-17 CLG BnaG 2-5
The Reserves recent good form came to an abrupt end in Falcarragh on Saturday night as they suffered their 2nd loss of the season to Cloughaneely. Played in difficult conditions it was Cloughaneely who adapted best to them as they dominated the first half. Their strength around the middle and speed and movement of inside forwards caused Na Galloglaigh lots of problems and they went in at half time witha comfortable lead, 1-11 to 0-2. Cloughaneely got the first score of teh second half but a spirited 10 minute spell saw Na Galloglaigh get themselves back into the game. Firstly a long range speculative effort from Gary Helferty dropped over the keepers head and into the net. This was followed soon after by another goal when Hayden Curran reacted quickest to a breaking ball to palm home from close range. Points from Helferty and Paul Fisher had the margin back to 6 points but unfortunately that was as close as it got. Cloughaneely used their experience to see out the game with another few points towards the end. Next up for the Reserves is home to Carndonagh in the Championship next Saturday. Team: Sean Gallagher, Cathal Diver, Paul Grier, Cormac Friel, Kieran Mc Laughlin, Cormac Toland, Dean Burgess (0-1), Caolan Bolton, Paul Sweeney, Emmet Conaghan, Paul Fisher (0-1), PJ Hagan, Gary Helferty (1-3), James Whelan, Hayden Curran. Subs: James McGinley for Curran (52m), Conall McFadden
Our U12s had a great start to their league campaign with a victory over Glenswilly last Wednesday night. It was a great team performance with some fine tackling and some excellent scores. The goals were scored by Anthony Curran (2), Liam Donnelly, Dara Kelly Cullen and Jordan Ryan while Johnny McCallum had a great game in nets with some excellent saves. Next up is Cloughaneely at home next Wednesday 11th at 6.30pm The B team put in a great performance against Glenswilly. This was the same team that our A team played and although Glenswilly ran out winners there were some excellent performances. Daithi McGinley got 2 great goals, Aidan McCullough made some great saves, Diarmuid Coyle, Oran Friel and Aidan McGettigan marshaled the defence with Lorcan Sweeney winning a lot of ball in midfield. Up front Dylan McGarry had a great game along with Lorcan Blaney.
