Rasheney Res 1
Glengad Res 5
The visitors started brightly and home keeper Damien Friel who excelled throughout done really well to deny both Chris Doherty and Paul Anthony Mc Dermott who got in good attempts on goal. Mark Smith then headed a Paul Mc Gonagle left wing cross against the bar. Rasheney’s first attempt on goal came when Jonathan Toland nodded down to Conor Mc Daid whose snapshot from 10 yards was held by Michael Mc Laughlin at the second attempt. However Glengad moved ahead midway through the half when, following a corner, the ball was cleared out to Mc Gonagle and he drove a ground shot to the net from outside the box. Mc Dermott was out of luck twice before half time. Firstly his 25 yard free cannoned off the bar and then when his lob of the keeper seemed destined to find the net Corny Mc Cole came to rescue and headed clear from right on the goal line. But he was not to be denied and on the restart he cut in from the right and drove home to double Glengad’s lead. Then the home side failed to make the most of good opportunities. First Toland set up Mc Daid but he shot wide of a gaping goal and Toland himself could not capitalise on a loose ball when keeper Mc Laughlin could not hold on. Mc Daid made amends minutes later when a move started in defence by Peter Doherty saw Toland release the young forward who advanced and drove to the net from the edge of the box for his first goal for the club. Glengad regained their two goal cushion when P.J. Mc Daid picked up a loose ball in midfield, ran clear of the home defence, rounded the keeper and found the net for 3 – 1. The visitors continued to create chances and it took a superb Matthew Duffy tackle to deprive Mc Dermott while keeper Friel denied Patrick Mc Dermott on two occasions. In the final 10 minutes Paul Anthony Mc Dermott ran clear and scored and the scoring was complete when Joe Doherty’s long range effort from wide on the left dropped into the net.
