ACFL Division 1:

St Lomans Mullingar 1-13 Garrycastle 2-06

Our division 1 side rounded off their campaign with a trip to Garrycastle last Sunday. The blues were assured of a league final place before throw in, however the hosts knew they could potentially be relegated if they were beaten and other results did not go in their favour. The visitors began the stronger outscoring their opponents five points to two in the first quarter, via Peter Foy and doubles from Shane Dempsey and Jack Geoghegan respectively. The hosts netted to briefly level matters, but the saints responded in perfect fashion with a goal at the other end which was finished impeccably by Shane Dempsey. Dempsey added to his tally before the break to see the Mullingar side bring a four-point lead into the interval.

The Shannon siders recovered well in the third quarter with three unanswered points to reduce the arrears to the minimum. Shane Dempsey pointed to stem the tide, but Garrycastle immediately cancelled it out. However, it has been a feature this season that Lomans have finished strongly in the last ten minutes, and it was no different on this occasion. Jack Geoghegan got the ball rolling with his third point of the day, then a hat-trick of frees from Dempsey increased the lead, followed by point from substitute Conor Regan another for Dempsey all but confirmed victory with six points on the spin. The home side hit a late goal, but it was a mere consolation as Paddy Dowdall’s side ran out four-point winners in a result which relegated the Shannon-siders.

On the day superb performances for the blues came from David Whelan and Jack Geoghegan, however the damage was done from sharpshooter Shane Dempsey who ended with an impressive 1-08. The blues now look forward to a league final against Coralstown Kinnegad with date and time to be confirmed.

Ladies Adult League division 2

St Lomans Mullingar 2-11 Coralstown Kinnegad 1-03

Coralstown Kinnegad were the visitors last Sunday to Home Instead Lakepoint Park as both teams were putting their 100% record this season on the line.

The blues started strong and were 4 points to no score up after 7 mins with the scores coming via three frees from Katie Kilmurray and a great score from play from Caoimhe Kilmurray.

Coralstown Kinnegad had their purple patch soon after scoring 1-2 without reply and after 15 mins the sides were level courtesy of another free from Katie. The goal that Lomans were searching for soon followed via the hard-working Shannon Breslin, followed by a point each from Katie Kilmurray and Niamh McGinley. As the game entered injury time the sides traded points to leave it 1-8 to 1-3 in favour of the blues.

The second half had a definite slower feel to it as two more points from the impressive Katie Kilmurray and further one from Caoimhe Kilmurray had Lomans leading by 1-11 to 1-3. On the 20th minute Shannon Breslin got her second goal of the day to end the game as a contest.

A very good performance from Lomans against a much more experienced and physically stronger opponent, what would be pleasing for the management is shutting out their opponents for the whole second half which took a great save from Jane McKenna late in the game to ensure that stat

ACFL Division 3:

St Lomans Mullingar 0-07 St Malachys 1-17

Hard luck to our division 3 side who’s winning run came to an end last Thursday night at the hands of St Malachy’s in Lakepoint Park. The visitors settled well and got the first four scores of the game. The Blues got off the mark early in the second quarter with scores from Tristan Graham and Enda Gaffney briefly steadying the ship. Malachys responded with a point, before being awarded a penalty moments later. The decision looked harsh on initial viewing, but referee Mick Murtagh had no hesitation. The penalty was duly converted and from there it was always a tall order for Robbie Kenny’s side. An Enda Gaffney double either side of Malachys score left the deficit at five points at the interval.

The Second half was much more one-sided with a strong Malachy’s outfit running out comfortable winners, winning the second half by 11 points to 3, once again it was Gaffney and Graham doing the damage for the home side. In the end a thirteen-point margin was somewhat harsh, as the saints did miss several scores in the first half but undoubtedly the visitors were worthy winners and deserve to gain promotion. The Blues need a minor miracle to gain promotion now and look almost certain to remain where they are. However, this result shouldn’t deter from some of the excellent displays we’ve seen from this team so far this year and there are encouraging signs with Junior Championship on the horizon.

Team; Frank Kavanagh, Sean Kelly, Shane Flynn, Eoghan O’Keefe, Seanai Bracken, Seanie Dinnegan, Sean Lancaster, Paddy Dowdall, Ciaran Smyth, Adam Lynch, Conor Regan, Eoghan Kenny, Chris Gilbert, Enda Gaffney (0.05,0.03f), Tristan Graham (0.02, 0.01f). Subs used; David Morgan

ACFL Division 4:

St Lomans Mullingar 1-11 Caulry 4-10

Last Tuesday evening our division 4 side faced off against Caulry. The Hosts new a victory would secure promotion, but our visitors had other ideas. The blues started with points from Tadhg Kenny and Adam Lynch, but Caulry replied, scoring 1-03 on the spin. The saints cut the lead with a well-taken goal from Frank Kavanagh. Caulry reponded with a score of their own but the hosts regained the lead before half-time with three scores via Tadhg Kenny, Frank Kavanagh and Niall Dowdall respectively. Caulry got the last score of the half to see the teams level pegging at the interval.

The second half was a more one-sided affair with the visitors hitting the blues for three second half goals, winning the half 3-05 to 0-06. Scores from Seanie Dinnegan, Conor Regan, Frank Kavanagh and three from Daniel McCann were not enough. Caulry in truth were well deserving of the victory on their second half showing. St Lomans Mullingar need a result against the Downs next Tuesday to secure safety.

Team; Stephen Gallagher, Adam Brady, Shane Flynn, Sean Lancaster, Eoghan O’Keefe, Seanie Dinnegan (0.01), Seanai Bracken, Ciaran Smyth, Nathan Lally, Niall Dowdall (0.01),Conor Regan (0.01), Adam Lynch (0.01), Eoghan Kenny, Frank Kavanagh (1.02, 0.02f), Tadhg Kenny (0.02).

Under 15 Division 1 League Final:

St Lomans Mullingar 3-13 Shandonagh 7-12

Last Tuesday evening saw a huge crowd turn out in Home Instead Lakepoint Park, where St Lomans Mullingar faced Shandonagh in the under 15 division 1 league final. Remarkably the division 4 final took place at the same time on the 3g pitch in Lakepoint Park, St Lomans facing Caulry in that encounter. The great weather, coupled with the huge gathering of people made for a great evening of football.

The Division 1 final was a thoroughly entertaining affair from first minute to last. The Hosts started the stronger with Conor Casey pointing either side of placed balls from Niall Brady before Shane Winsdor got the Saints fourth. The visitors settled shortly afterwards with a Stephen McWade double closing the gap. Brady added to his tally with another free, but Shandonagh responded emphatically, hitting 2-02 Courtesy of William Scahill and Stephen McWade.

The sides traded scores mid-way through the first half with Casey and Scahill on target for their respective sides. The game took another twist, shortly afterwards with three goals for the Saints via Conor Maleady and a double from Enda Moran. On the stroke of half time Shandonagh reduced the arrears to the minimum with a truly stunning goal from top marksman Stephen McWade.

The Ballinea side sprung out of the traps in the second half and hit 1-02 without reply through a McWade goal and a pair of free’s from Scahill. Four consecutive points from Cormac Murphy, Cillian Walsh and a double from substitute Ben Smith saw the sides level with fifteen minutes to play. However, it was Shandonagh who powered home in the final quarter to claim victory.

McWade hit a quickfire goal and point, his partner in crime Scahill did likewise and suddenly there were 8 between the teams. Niall Brady replied for the hosts, but Scahill found the net for the fourth time to seal the deal well and truly for Shandonagh. The teams ended with a couple of scores each through Conor Casey and Stephen McWade. Commiserations to the St Lomans side who fought for the full sixty minutes.
