Quigley’s Point Swifts  0-2 Dunree United  

Dunree United picked up their first points of the season with a hard-fought victory against Quigley’s Point Swifts in Muff.

The home side were on the attack early. In the first minute, Chris Montieth’s low shot forced a good save from Dunree keeper Phillip Doherty. On three minutes, Stephen Grant’s cross from the right was met by Raymond Buchanan but his shot was deflected over the bar from six yards.The away side got into the game, with Phillip McGuinness going close with a sixteen yard effort on twelve minutes. Three minutes later, a long high ball from Liam Baldrick was latched onto by James O’Donnell but his Point keeper Oisin Burke blocked his shot from eight yards.The rest of the half was scrappy affair with much of the play bogged down in midfield. Brian McColgan headed wide for the Swifts from another good cross from Grant on twenty-four minutes. A minute before the break, Dunree forward Oisin O’Flaherty was played through by a Darryl Moran pass but his shot found the side-netting.The second half started much as the first ended, with the Quigley’s Point enjoying more of the possession but both teams struggling to create clear-cut chances. On fifty-five minutes, Baldrick’s free-kick from the edge on the Point penalty box went over the bar. A minute later, Joe McKinney’s well-struck shot from twenty yards drew a strong save from Doherty.Dunree broke the deadlock on sixty-six minutes. James O’Donnell was played in by O’Flaherty on the left hand side of the penalty box, and his shot from a tight angle went in off the far post.The Muff side pushed for an equaliser, with Montieth going close from sixteen yards on sixty-nine minutes.  But the visitors were resilient and well-organised in defence, keeping the home side at bay under pressure.Two minutes before the end, Montieth whipped in a free-kick from the left but an unmarked Brian McColgan failed to make contact with ball from six yards. With the last attack of the game, Dunree made it two-nil. After some good play down the right flank the ball fell to O’Flaherty just outside the box, and the striker’s effort deflected off a Point defender and over Oisin Burke to secure a timely win for the visiting side and snap Quigley’s Point’s four-game unbeaten run.
