Abbey Rangers Minors Catch Out Castlemitchell

posted 12 Apr 2018, 15:15 by Kildangan PRO

The Abbey Rangers minor footballers recorded a comprehensive victory against Castlemitchell at Kildangan on Sunday morning, winning on a 4-13 to 1-2 score line.

Daniel Gilbert opened the scoring before two Mikey Delahunt frees pushed us three ahead. Castlemitchel then settled into the game but our defence was rock solid with the Grattan brothers, Dara Lovern and Aaron Behan clearing anything that came their way.

Robert McGrath got the Abbey Rangers scoreboard ticking again with a well taken point and Cathal McKernan finished a goalmouth scramble to the net after Aaron O’Connor’s shot had been blocked. The visitors got their only score of the half before Shane Lawler went on a scoring blitz of his own netting 1-2 in the space of five minutes. Further scores from Daniel Gilbert and Mikey Delahunt left us 2-8 to 0-1 ahead at the break.

Castlemitchel came out firing in the second half with a goal and a point in the opening minutes but any thought of a revival soon ended when Daniel Gilbert finished off a great move with a goal. Ciaran Byrne, Eoin O’Fearghaill and Joey O’Sullivan then put their names on the score board and Brian Day capped a fine performance with our fourth goal as we ran out easy winners in the end.

It was a very good team performance against a team that had put us to the sword over the past few years and it shows how much this group have come on. Unfortunately, results elsewhere mean we just miss out on a semi-final spot but there’s plenty to be positive about after this game.

Abbey Rangers: Sean Fitzgerald, Orren Grattan, Aaron Behan, Russell Grattan, Dara Lovern, Eoin O’Fearghaill, Joey O’Sullivan, Robert McGrath, Brian Day, Aaron O’Connor, Shane Lawler, Mikey Delahunt, Cathal McKernan, Daniel Gilbert, Ciaran Byrne

Seniors Start League With Home Win

posted 9 Apr 2018, 15:36 by Kildangan PRO   [ updated 12 Apr 2018, 15:22 ]

Following the postponement of the Division 3A league opener away to Ellistown last week, Kildangan welcomed Milltown to More O'Ferrall Park this evening, and recorded their first win of the year in the opening round of the League with a 6-10 to 1-8 victory.

On a perfect evening for football, our lads took to the field with a mixture of youth and experience and they combined both well over the hour. Midfielder Luke Barry opened the scoring before the visitors hit us for a goal and point in quick succession but Ryan Moran responded by rattling the Milltown net twice in the space of the next five minutes.

With the visitors dominating around the middle of the field, our defence was under constant pressure and Jordan Kaye outstanding during this period to prevent further scores. Defenders Bryan Adams and Conor Mulholland got forward for points before Milltown replied with some good scores from distance. A Ryan Moran point made it 2-4 to 1-4 as we neared half time but good play between Conor Mulholland and Robert McGrath put Phillip Ryan through for a cracking goal to extend our lead. A final Moran point made it 3.5 to 1.4 at the break.

Milltown’s resolve disappeared early in the second half as another Ryan Moran goal and two from Kevin Christie left them well out of sight. The same two players added points before Milltown showed their spirit hitting the last three points of the game as it finished 6-10 to 1-8 in our favour.

We played some great football during the course of the game and there’s plenty to work on for our next game away to Nurney next Monday evening. Well done to all involved.

Kildangan: John Miller, Jordan Kaye, Bryan Adams, Dermot Hickey, Kevin Christie, Conor Mulholland, Damien Broughall, Luke Barry, Phillip Ryan, Eric O’Hara, Robert McGrath, Andrew Wilson, Ryan Moran
Subsitutes: Darragh Kennedy for Wilson (40 minutes)
