MacCumhaills 0-13 CLG BnaG 2-10
Na Galloglaigh kept up their fine away record with a great win over MacCumhaills in a really tight game. The boys were never behind for the duration of the game and got a dream start when a strong run from Joey Cullen ended with Kyle Black getting a goal with the first score of the game. They then went 1-3 to no score up after around 15 minutes before MacCumhaills came back really strong. Several unanswered points from the Twin Towns men narrowed the gap before a couple of frees from Cathal Mc Gettigan left 2 in it at the break, 1-5 to 0-6. MacCumhaills came out strong again at the start of the second and brought it back to a point and from then on it was a battle right to the end. Na Galloglaigh kept managing to get their scores to keep their noses in front but three times MacCumhaills levelled the game up. When a point up late in the game Gary Merritt had a decent goal chance saved which renewed hope for MacCumhaills and they went up to get an equaliser in injury time. Then, with almost 5 minutes of injury time played, a fine move up the left hand side saw Cullen again break free and he found Jonny Logue to finish to the back of the net from 6 yards. The boys hung on tight for the final whistle which came after 7 minutes of injury time for another huge win to maintain their unbeaten record. A Special mention also to todays Captain Anthony Fisher who due to army commitments will no longer be available for the rest of the season and his energy and work rate will be a huge loss to the side.

MacCumhaills 1-12 CLG BnaG 1-6
MacCumhaills ran out 6 point winners against our Resrves yesterday. Na Galloglaigh got off to a perfect start when they opened the scoring with a Dean Burgess goal after 3 minutes. The home side responded with a point and were level soon after. As the skies opened the heavy rain made conditions difficult but both teams battled hard. MacCumhaills moved into the lead with further points but scores from Paul Sweeney and Luke Trearty brought the gap back to 1 point going into half time. The 2nd half was again close with not much between the teams for the majority of it. However Na Galloglaigh just couldnt get their noses in front. Points from Conall McFadden, Paul Fisher and a 45 from goalkeeper Sean Gallagher were scored however MacCumhaills responded with scores of their own each time. The killer blow came with 10 minutes to go when Na Galloglaigh were harshly penalised for a foul and MacCumhaills raced up the field to score a goal. That brought their lead to 4 points and from there on they seen out the game with the last score of the match a point from Caolan Bolton.
