Glenswilly v Malin 20.04.15

Glenswilly 1-09

Malin 0-09

Glenswilly overcame Malin on Sunday with a goal to spare as Malin’s slow start to the season continued. In perfect conditions in Glenswilly, Malin opened the scoring through Matthew Byrne with a free after Paul McLaughlin had been fouled. Glenswilly responded with a score from Brian Farley. Dan McDaid scored from a narrow angle shortly after when McGrenra pushed a long ball across the goal. Glenswilly then capitalised on two poor kickouts from Malin with Ciaran Bonnor pointing and then the decisive score of the game saw Christopher McMonagle race on to a loose ball and make no mistake low past the keeper to give the homeside the lead in an overall poor first half from both sides. Half time score read Glenswilly 1-02 Malin 0-02.
The second half improved with much more intensity and a lot more scoring, Glenswilly opened the scoring through a punched McMonagle score after a long ball in and this was followed by a Kealan McFadden point after good work from Oisin Crawford. Malin responded with a Dan McDaid free from the left after Byrne had been fouled. McDaid got another free shortly after when Damien Harkin was brought down. Ciaran Bonner then worked a quick free with McFadden and recieved the ball back to score from 30 yards. Darren McGinley added another score for the home side with a curling effort from out on the left after the ball had broke off Joe Gibbons. McGinley then burst through the Malin defence and was brought down for a penalty which he himself stepped up and hit the post with. This spurned Malin into life and they went on to score four in a row to get back to only a point behind. Byrne scored a free when Brendan McLaughlin was brought down and then he scored an excellent effort from out wide and another close range effort with Stephen Doherty getting the other from the right. Glenswilly to their credit responded with Darren McGinley and two points from the young Paul O’Brien after beating his man to the ball and firing over first time to stretch the lead out to four. Byrne added a late consolation point for Malin who now face Ardara at home in their next game. Final score Glenswilly 1-09 Malin 0-09.
