Danske Bank Ward Cup semi-final
St Mogue’s Bawboy 7-13 De La Salle Downpatrick 3-10
WHILE St Mogue’s Bawnboy were a point in arrears at the break in this entertaining Dansk Bank Ward Cup semi-final yesterday, they had played against the breeze and that left them well placed to push on for victory.
De La Salle played their part in a fine game, but they will regret a number of wides in the opening half that might have put more pressure on Bawnboy after the break.
Sam Dinu and James Crangle hit good early points for Downpatrick and they went further ahead with a goal from Dinu and then a second from Jamie Darby inside the space of five minutes.
However St Mogue’s steadied the ship with a goal from Peadar Caffrey and just before half time Caoimhan McGovern also hit the net with Eoghan Brady and Nikodim McKiernan adding points each before the short whistle.
Brady rattled in two quick goals on the re-start and they had Bawnboy in control of the game. Further goals from Philip McGoldrick and Peadar Caffrey pushed them out of sight, although there was a late consolation goal for the excellent Sam Dinu five minutes from time.
The other semi-final, between Breffni College Cavan and St Mary’s Limavady was hit by the weather on Tuesday and has now been re-fixed for the Mid Ulster Sports’ Arena this coming Tuesday at 12.30pm.
St Mogue’s : Caoimhan McGovern (2-4), Peadar Caffrey (2-2), Eoghan Brady (2-2), Philp McGoldrick (1-2), Kikodim McKiernan (0-1), Pauric Lyons (0-1), Liam Bannon (0-1)
De La Salle : Sam Dinu (2-3), Jamie McDarby (1-1), James Crangle (0-3), Lee Murphy (0-2), Harry O’Bank (0-1)
