On Wednesday evening last we welcomed Truagh Gaels in a 2 point Game in Scotshouse where we came away with our first win in the senior league. With Monaghan out of championship for 2019, we welcomed back Jack. This was a very lively encounter from start to finish and the spectators got good value for their money. Truagh got the better of first half with score line of 6 points to 10
at halftime. The second half started again very lively with Truagh getting the first point leaving the score line 6 points to 11. However Ciaran McCaffrey scored 2 good points in quick succession and followed up by a point from Conor Smyth leaving score at 9-11. Jack scored another point with Truagh adding 2, still leaving us trailing by 3 points. However some good play by the lads got the ball in to Eoin Morrow who got it across the face of goal and Colm McCaffrey put ball and himself in the back of the net to leave all square at 1-10 to 13 points. Truagh went back 3 points in front again scoring 4 points in a row with Jack converting a free for us to leave score line of 1-11 to 17 points. But again we never lay down and Jack and Kevin both scoring bringing us back to a point down. Up steps Jack then to catch a ball high in the air on the edge of the square with 3 players marking him, and he buried it in the back of the net to leave the score line of 2-13 to 17 points. Truagh again scored a point and Stephen Smyth finished our scoring with another point to leave us 2 up. Truagh got a final point with time up and game finished 2-14 to 19 points
This was a great team effort from all the lads playing with great heart and supporting each other at all times but a special mention has to be given to Jack who scored 1-7 and showed his class.
