:: Malin GAA Club 20.03.17

Seniors and Reserves
The seniors lost out at home at the weekend to Ardara on a scoreline of Malin 0-06 Ardara 0-12 while the reserves also lost out 2-11 to 0-05. Malin only scored one point in the second half as Ardara came back from a point behind at the break to win by double scores in Connolly Park. The first half saw Paul Walters putting the visitors in front after Gareth Concarr’s crossfield ball. Malin almost got a goal in reply when Paul McLaughlin’s long ball in saw Seamus Houghton knock it down to Brendan McLaughlin who saw his shot saved by the towering Ardara keeper Cathal Gallagher. Paul McLaughlin did manage to salvage the move with a point from the resulting 45’. Gareth Concarr then scored a free after McHugh had been fouled and he quickly got his second point after beating his man and scoring from an awkward angle. Gary Farren replied after a strong run up the right. Michael McLaughlin saved Malin shortly after with a great block and Brendan McLaughlin levelled the scores with a jinking run and a one two played with Oisin McGonagle. Joe Melly’s strong run and good finish saw Ardara ahead again but Malin finished the half stronger with two Brendan McLaughlin frees. Halftime score Malin 0-05 Ardara 0-04.

Gary McHugh punched a long ball towards the goal at the start of the second half forcing Malin keeper Darragh McLaughlin to push it over the bar for a point. Concarr edged the visitors ahead with a free after he himself had been fouled. Paul McLaughlin levelled up after Anthony Kelly sent Brendan McLaughlin away with a quick free. However, that was as good as it got for Malin who failed to score for the next twenty five minutes of normal time and five more added on. Ardara took control of the contest with two more Concarr frees before an excellent Brendan Boyle score from out on the right. Gary McHugh scored from the left after the referee played a good advantage and Concarr added another from play. Malin pushed and had a few half chances at goal, one effort from Dan McDaid being the closest, but It was left to CJ Molloy to finish the contest with the score of the game deep into injury time with a monster score from out on the left to leave the final score Malin 0-06 Ardara 0-12.

Big Breakfast
The club would like to thank all those who helped make our annual St. Patrick’s day Big Breakfast a great success. We would also like to thank the community who supported the event in large numbers.

This week’s lotto jackpot of €500 was won by Francis McLaughlin, Fildara who shares jackpot with Loretto Reilly, Dublin. The numbers drawn were 7-6-4-3-5-1-2. Next week’s jackpot is €500.

Easter Camp
This year’s Easter camp will take place on Wed 23rd, Thurs 24th and Fri 25th, more details to follow. Contact Danny Lafferty for more details.

The minors drew with Moville on St. Patrick’s day.. A last ditch goal prevented Malin from victory in a hard fought game. 16 year old Ronan Kelly filled the void of the injured senior player Cormaic Cullinan at fullback in a outstanding man of the match display and Sean Byrne continued his impressive form with another honest hard working display particularly in the second half. A gutsy all round team effort in harsh conditions. A speedy recovery to Daniel Houghton who got injured last weekend and hopefully Connor Bambrick will be returning to the panel shortly to add depth to the squad. A tough few games ahead in a tight Inishowen League expected. They play at home next Sunday against Naomh Padraig, Muff at 11:00am.
