Gaelcholáiste Dhoire collect Nannery Cup 🏆
Gaelcholáiste Dhoire picked up their first ever Danske Bank U14.5 Nannery Cup title with a strong second half performance in an entertaining final against St. Patrick’s Banbridge in the Mid Ulster Sports Arena yesterday.
But it took two goals from Gerard Hegarty in the last ten minutes to rescue a game that looked to be going away from the Dungiven side.
Gaelcholáiste were the better side during the first half and a goal from Peadar Pio Peoples and some fine points from Rian Coyle, Gerard Hegarty and Jude Connery saw them lead by 1-4 to 0-1 coming into the break.
Banbridge were pressing hard however and were awarded a penalty that Declan McGovern confidently struck past Gaelcholáiste captain Ciaran Murray.
That score seemed to energise the Down team for the second half and Gaelcholáiste couldn’t break past their half-back line as McGovern, Patrick Devlin, Padraig Maguire and Henry Murphy took the game to their opponents.
Points from Eoghan Fitzpatrick, Murphy and Daniel Wallace edged them a point clear entering the last ten minutes with all the momentum behind them.
However Gaelcholáiste dug deep and a rather fortuitous goal from Gerard Hegarty got them back into the lead with Hegarty’s second goal sealing the game at the very end.
Full Time
Gaelcholáiste Dhoire 3-06
St Patrick’s Banbridge 1-06
Gaelcholáiste scorers: Gerard Hegarty 2-4, Peadar Pio Peoples 1-0, Rian Coyle 0-1, Jude Connery 0-1
