first_imgREPORT FROM MILFORD: CLG BnaG 1-8 Fanad Gaels 2-8The U16s picked up their first defeat of the season, after they were defeated by a late goal in an ill-tempered local derby on Friday night.The game was marred by a number of unsavoury incidents with both sides to blame, and the boys suffered for over-indulging in the physical aspect of the game, which did not suit their style of football. Na Galloglaigh got off to an impressive start and found themselves two points up after 15 minutes, with Duncan Patterson and Kane Barrett both scoring two points. The forwards were causing trouble for the Fanad defence, but just couldn’t get enough possession into them. Barrett exchanged frees with Eoin Carr, but a late score from Fanad reduced the deficit to one point at half-time.A poor start to the second half proved to be the side’s downfall, with Fanad scoring 1-3 within two minutes of the restart. Na Galloglaigh improved after this spell and dominated the remainder of the game.However, they could only add 1-3 to their tally. Connor Gormley scored a wonderful goal, while Barrett contributed three frees.Fanad scored a point, and then late in the game, struck for the winning goal. Milford found themselves short at the back, and despite a valiant effort from the full-back line, the ball trickled over the line from the boot of Fanad’s corner-back. The boys tried desperately to get an equalising goal, but they could not find the breakthrough. The defeat is a blow, but there is still much to play for in the league campaign.Team: Gavin McFadden, Patrick Ferry, Kieran Sheridan, Odhran Coll, Conor McHugh, Shay Durning, Ronan Docherty, Luke Trearty, Cormac Toland, Jason Scullion, Connor Gormley (1-0), Shane McNamee, Duncan Patterson, Kane Barrett, Gavin Grier. Subs: Adam Serrinha, Daire Crossan, Dane Dunworth. GAA NEWS: FANAD EDGE MILFORD IN U-16 BOYS CLASH was last modified: July 20th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:GAA NEWS: FANAD EDGE MILFORD IN U-16 BOYS CLASHlast_img
