Match Report: Senior Football A League Division 1 Round 9

15th June 2016

Donaghmore/Ashbourne 5-13
Navan O’Mahonys 0-11

Donaghmore/Ashbourne recorded a surprisingly easy win over an under strength Navan O’Mahonys side in this A League game at Ashbourne on Tuesday.
The Navan side scored the first two points of the game but Don/Ash soon settled and playing some fast attacking football they established an interval lead of 2-09 to 0-05, the goals from Bryan Menton after seventeen minutes and a Ciaran Ellis effort just before the break.

O’Mahonys made a positive start to the second half with two fine points but two goals and a point in a five minute spell from the in-form Michael Deegan killed the game as a contest. Midfielder Sean Curran scored the fifth goal as the home side ran out comfortable winners preserving their unbeaten run in the League.

Andy Colgan, JP Casserly, Cormac McGill, Thomas McGovern, Darragh McGovern, Shane Melia, Paul Gilligan 0 – 1, Conor Carey, Sean Curran 1 – 0, Bryan Menton 1 – 1, James Colgan, Cathal Field, Ciaran Ellis 1 – 2, Dylan Brady 0 – 3, Michael Deegan 2 – 5.
