‘A’ Team start strong in latest league win

This 4-0 home result over Maree/Oranmore on Sunday was wrapped up with plenty of time to spare, keeping Colemanstown in the top 3 with Salthill Devon & West still in pole position. Ray Moran who was still rocking from Ballymac disco the previous night, opened the scoring with purpose as he whipped Colemanstown into an early lead on 3mins with a powerful volley from outside the box which left the keeper rooted to the spot. On 20mins Kerrill Hardy’s effort on goal was well saved as the keeper lofted the ball up in the air but Steven Walsh was well positioned to meet the ball as it came back down and head home his third goal of the season from 2yards as the stranded keeper had failed to pick himself off the ground. Walsh had an earlier chance in which he had rounded the keeper well but an Oranmore defender got back well for a timely interception. Oranmore had a good chance to pull one back midway through the half but instead booted over the crossbar. Colemanstown’s third goal came on the stroke of half time as Damo Wynne switched play across to Paddy Mullins on the left wing whose cross from the end line found Kegs who finished neatly with his right foot. 3-0 at half time.  Shortly after the restart Kegs capitalised on a defensive blunder to claim his second of the day and 17th of the season and truly keep the battle of the Golden Boot alive between himself and Tom Flan. Another fine Damo Wynne cross from the right into the danger area and as the keeper hesitated in coming off his line, Kegs was quickest to react and tap home from close range. Gary Lally had a couple of 2nd half efforts and Richie Lally had a penalty claim which fell on deaf ears but it finished a comfortable 4-0 success for the home team. Ray Moran, Damo Wynne & Gareth Lally between them unravelled most of the midfield exchanges while Jayo Finn took a stronghold of all organisational senses at the back. Well done lads on another fine display as it looks like the battle for top honours is really going down to the wire.
