Aileach and Carn played out an entertaining draw on Saturday night with the away side the happier with the result after coming from three one down.  Aileach started brightly but it was Carn who took the lead in the 10th minute when Michael McDermott broke through the centre of the Aileach defence and squared for Dayton Cooke to fire into the net from six  yards.  Aileach responded and came close when Conor Harkin fired a shot from ten yards that was saved by Greg Doherty in the Carn goal.  Aileach got back on terms on

25 minutes when a good passing move between Harkin and Benny Hegarty resulted in Harkin clipping the ball over the keeper and into the net to level matters on 25 minutes.  Five minutes later, Harkin was at it again turning his marker and firing into the bottom corner from twenty five yards. Aileach were pressing hard at this stage of the game and came close when Killian O’Rourke fired a shot inches over the angle of bar and post.  On the stroke of half time a Shane McMonagle through ball found Josh Lynch who forced another save from Doherty in the Carn goal.  Straight from the restart, Aileach came close again when McMonagle’s cross found Hegarty whose flick towards the net was touched round the post by Doherty.  Patrick Curran was next to try his luck when a Josh Lynch cross fell to him but a combination of defenders and keeper kept the ball out.  Aileach finally  extended their lead on 60 minutes when Harkin outpaced his man down the line and crossed for McMonagle to slide home to make it three one.  This seemed to spur Carn into life and five minutes later they reduced the arrears when Dermot Doherty broke the offside trap and squared for Cooke to tap home.  The

pivotal moments in the game happened on the hour when Harkin crossed for McMonagle who looked certain to score before Doherty made an outstanding save and from the resulting clearance a through ball by McDermott sent Cooke clear and his shot was parried by Clarke in the home goal it still had just enough to get over the line to level the scores.  Aileach then forced Carn back for a spell and came close when Hegarty fired a volley goalwards only for it to clip the outside of the post.  With 15 minutes to go, Aileach had a golden chance to win the game when Harkin was upended in the box but Doherty came to Carn’s rescue again saving Harkins penalty.Carn had the final chance of the game when Dylan Cooke had a shot saved by

Clarke.
