Aileach claimed a well-deserved three points with a good win on a windy Sunday morning in Muff against a subdued Quigley’s Point Swifts side. They started well and three times in the opening quarter Ruairi Bradley came close firing wide from ten yards before seeing a header saved by David Bell and finally lobbing over the bar when well placed. The point replied and Joe Johnstone pounced on a loose pass to create space but he fired just wide before Reece Rutherford had an effort saved by David McGeady. Before the break Aileach replied and when Conor McMacken released Bradley his low cross evaded all and the ball was cleared. Aileach started the second period well and McMacken fired wide from twenty yards. They  broke the deadlock on 48 minutes when Paul Mchugh intercepted a defensive pass and squared for Bradley to slot home from six yards. On 64 minutes, Aileach defender Adam Barr lifted a high cross in to the Point box from deep on the left, but midfielder Jordan McGeady, who had a good game, blasted over from six yards. Quigley’s Point were presented with their best chance of the game on 69 minutes. Defender Declan Bown, a bright spark going forward, made a great run down the right hand side. He drilled a low cross to striker Josh McLaughlin who perhaps should have scored, but his scuffed shot from six yards was cleared off the line by David McGeady. The resulting Quigley’s Point corner was cleared by Aileach, who drove up field and Jordan McGeady was unlucky not to double his side’s lead when his shot from sixteen yards went inches wide. Aileach continued to press and were again unlucky not to score on 71 minutes. A corner from Ruairi Bradley caused confusion in the Quigley’s Point penalty box before landing to Aileach defender Anthony Rabbitte, whose lobbed shot was well cleared off the line by Swifts’s Aaron Barr. Aileach had two more chances to secure the game. With seven minutes left, Caomhin McFeely headed straight at David Bell from eight yards after a good ball in from the left from Conor McMacken. Two minutes later, another quality corner from Bradley was well met by the head of Adam Barr, who put it just over the bar. With three minutes left, the Swifts almost snatched a point from the game. Paul Hegarty lumped a high cross from the left hand side into the Aileach box from a cleared free-kick, and Declan Bown’s header forced David McGeady into a good low save.
