Strong Performance

Islandeady produced another robust performance in their defeat of Ballinrobe in their recent Mayo Senior League Group 1B match. Played in Flanagan Park Ballinrobe in dry, windy conditions, the game was closely contested in the first half as both teams tussled for dominance. The Ballinrobe goalkeeper was forced to pull off a great save in the first few minutes of the game as Cormac Gordon struck for goal. Darragh Joyce, Danny McGowan and Brendan Gibbons recorded points for Islandeady in the first half. Solid defending by both Islandeady and Ballinrobe ensured that the half-time score was a low 0-5 to 0-7 in favour of Ballinrobe. However, in the second half a goal by Liam Joyce and points by Peter Collins, Darragh Joyce, Danny Mcgowan and Brendan Gibbons left Ballinrobe trailing, as Marty Gallagher and Paul Ruane worked to ensure that the Islandeady defence held firm. Then a goal by Darragh Joyce, who received a nifty pass from Barry Walsh, sealed the victory for Islandeady. The final score was Islandeady 2-12, Ballinrobe 0-9.
