The 2nd Year Gaelic Football team had a very comfortable win in their first game of the season on Friday 25th November.
Chanel College 7 - St. Joseph’s College, Fairview 2.
Date: 14 November 2022
Chanel College started their Senior League campaign with a dominant display in the second half, scoring six unanswered goals over a spirted St. Joseph’s side in Parnell’s today.
Despite playing the better football in the first half, they trailed by 2-1 at half time. St Joseph’s scored the first goal after 5 minutes but an opportunistic overhead kick from Sean Byrne 5thYear levelled up the game after 12 minutes. Joey’s took the lead again in the 41st minute giving them the advantage at half time.
However, Chanel equalized through Sean Connor after 52 minutes and then a left foot strike from Thomas Tighe before the 60th minute gave Chanel the lead for the first time. Chanel increased their intensity thereafter giving them more opportunities to score. A well taken goal from Sean Connor after 67 minutes extended their lead.
The scoring was not to end there as Lewis Moore 72 and 76 minutes gave him a brace of scores. Finally Killian Maye sealed the victory with an exquisite team goal after 79 minutes.
The team play St. Fintan’s Sutton next Monday 21 November in the Leinster League.
Well done to all.
Team: Jamie Murphy, Jamie Keating, James Keating, Karl Popa, Aaron Hughes, Stefan Madden, John Maxwell, Sean Conor, Scott Lynch, Sean Byrne, Thomas Tighe, Lewis Moore, Cian Bradley, Sean Gorman, Luke Gifford, Killian Maye, Karl Halligan.
