St Eunan’s get second win in MacRoryNovember 21, 2018
Danske Bank MacRory Cup
Wednesday 21st, 12pm in Drumragh : St Eunan’s Letterkenny 2-11 St Paul’s Bessbrook 0-6
IN THIS their return to the Danske Bank MacRory Cup under former Donegal All-star forward Colm McFadden, St Eunan’s Letterkenny have booked themselves into the knock-out stages of the competition after Christmas.
Whatever the outcome of tomorrow’s (FRIDAY) final group game between St Patrick’s Armagh and Patrician Carrickmacross, St Eunan’s are through to the knock-out stages and will even make the quarter-finals if Patrician win by between eight and 12 points.
Yesterday in Drumragh the Donegal boys had the measure of St Paul’s Bessbrook and were in control of the game after Ronan Frain started and finished a move from his own half-back line with a 16th minute goal.
St Eunan’s went on to lead by 1-4 to 0-3 at the break and 14 minutes into the second half killed off the game with a second goal, a solo effort from Frain this time, cutting in from the left wing and firing in an excellent shot that just dipped under the Bessbrook crossbar.
St Paul’s had little to cheer about on a bitterly cold afternoon with only Luke Mallon lifting the gloom, while Colm McFadden will be more than happy with the progress of his squad.
St Eunan’s : Ronan Frain 2-0, Padraig McGettigan 0-3, Shane O’Donnell 0-3, Conor O’Donnell 0-1, Eoin Dowling 0-1, Caolan Dunleavey 0-1, Oran Winston 0-1, Kieran Kilfeddar 0-1
St Paul’s : Odhran Kieran 0-2, Oisin King 0-1, Ryan Hughes 0-1, Eoghan Woods 0-1, Ryan Connolly 0-1
