Madden 0-12 Ballymacnab 1-13

Our minors progressed to the next round of the Championship with a hard fought victory over a spirited Madden side on Monday evening.

Madden got the first score of the game with a pointed free on the 3rd minute but a converted Aodhan Toner free three minutes later levelled matters. Finnén Maguire exchanged points with that of the Madden attack before a 10tth minute goal from an Aodhan Toner free proved to be a definitive score in the game. From this, Ballymacnab began to dominate with points from Finnén Maguire, Shaun Casey, Oisin McGivern and Tiarnán McArdle against two from the opposition to leave the 'Nab leading 1-06 to 4 points at the break.

At the restart Madden reduced the margin to two with three unanswered points before points from Kieran Hughes and Oggie McArdle kept the 'Nab in front. Madden hit back with two further points and only an excellent save from Ryan McKenna denied a certain goal at the expense of a 45 meter kick. This was converted to level the game on the 50th minute. With the game hanging in the balance the lads showed great resolve and finished the game the strongest with points from Shaun Casey, Oggie McArdle (2), Aodhan Toner and Oisin McGivern to send them through to the next round.

Team: Ryan McKenna, Ciaran Connolly, Conor McGivern (Capt), Conor Mackin, Conor Leonard, Fearghal Nugent, Aodhan Toner (1-2), Finnén Maguire (0-2), Shaun Casey (0-2), Kieran Hughes (0-1), Oisin McGivern (0-2), Tiarnán McArdle (0-1), Tiarnán 'Oggie' McArdle (0-3).
