*Seniors*
St Nauls 1-10 CLG BnaG 2-13
A superb second half performance tonight saw Na Galloglaigh come away with 2 big points from Mountcharles on Saturday. Whilst probably having slightly more possession in the first half the boys were wasteful at times against a hard but fair Nauls defence. At the other end Nauls always looked the more dangerous and were certainly the more clinical of the sides, but Na Galloglaigh still managed to get the scores to keep in touching distance. After 20 minutes Stephen Griffin ghosted in behind the defence to find the net for St Nauls but the boys responded brilliantly to go straight up the field and score their own, Gary Merritt lobbing the keeper from out wide with a strike he is adamant he meant. Nauls scored 3 unanswered points near the end of the half to see them clear at half time,1-7 to 1-4. Na Galloglaigh were a different animal in the second half and early on Joey Cullen, who was magnificent in midfield, ended a great run with a low finish to the back of the net and the boys were right back in it. For the next 15 minutes of the half it was mainly one way traffic with Na Galloglaigh going 7 ahead at a stage with Cathal Mc Gettigan on fire with his frees. St Nauls launched a late onslaught but Na Galloglaigh showed the same workrate and intensity they have shown all season to see out the game and come away with 2 brilliant points. Next up for the boys is a home game against Four Masters next Sunday. The Club would like to wish Luke Barrett all the best as he heads off to America on Monday, he will be a big loss to the team. Team: Caolan Mc Gettigan, Conor McNulty, Barry McNulty, Tj Evesson, Sean Black, Paddy Peoples, Gary Merritt (1-1), Luke Barrett (0-2), Joey Cullen (1-1), Darragh Black, Pauric Curley (0-1), Jonny Logue, Cathal McGettigan (0-8), Christopher Barrett, David Curley. Subs: Kyle Black for D. Curley (49m), Anthony Fisher for S. Black (56m), Dean Burgess, Cormac Friel, Martin Doyle, Caolan Bolton

*Reserves*
St Nauls 0-6 CLG BnaG 1-9
Our Reserves got back to winning ways with a 6 point win over St Nauls on Saturday, with an early goal from Ryan Ferry getting Na Galloglaigh off to a perfect start. However despite having the majority of possession they failed to take numerous scoring opportunities that followed. St Nauls responded with a few scores of their own but points from Martin Doyle, James Whelan, Dean Burgess and a 45 from PJ Hagan gave Na Galloglaigh a 4 point half time lead. The lads were determined not to let this lead slip as it in previous games, and as a result started the second half strong. Again they had the majority of possession and chances but not all were converted. Points from Hagan, Doyle and 2 frees from Gary Helferty kept the lads in front and the defence stood firm to restrict Nauls to just 2 points in the second half. Any hope of a Nauls comeback were dashed when Conall McFadden made a great one on one save to deflect the ball onto the post late in the game. Hopefully the lads can take confidence from this victory going into next weeks game at home to Four Masters. Team: Conall McFadden, Cathal Diver, Paul Grier, Paddy Ferry, Cormac Toland, Dean Burgess (0-1), Cormac Friel, Anthony Fisher, Caolan Bolton, PJ Hagan (0-3), James Whelan (0-1), Ryan Ferry (1-0), Marty Doyle (0-2), Gary Helferty (0-2), Emmet Conaghan. Subs: Hayden Curran for Fisher (40m), Matthew Stewart for Diver (48m), James Mc Callum for Conaghan (50m)

*U12s*
Our U12s had a great victory on Wednesday evening over St Eunans in O’Donnell Park to continue their winning streak. They started very well and got two early goals through Killian McBride and Fionn Coll and Mikie McBride fired over two excellent long range points. At the other end Johnny McCallum made four excellent saves to ensure St Eunans got no goals. Further points from Fionn Coll, Liam DOnnelly and Eoin McGettigan left Na Galloglaigh 4 points up at half time. The second half was a totally different game with St Eunans scoring three goals and two points to bring it to a one point game, but Na Galloglaigh held their nerve with some great defending by Odhran Doherty, Paul Ryan and Anthony Curran. At the other end two points from Adam McHugh and one from Liam Donnelly ensured they emerged victorious with five points to spare. Next up is MacCumhaills on Wednesday at 7pm. Our B team came up against a very strong St Eunans team but there were some very good performances with Diarmuid Coyle and Lorcan Blaney both having great games. The B team will also be up against MacCumhaills on Wednesday night
