Na Fianna club notes
MINOR FOOTBALL SHIELD FINAL
Na Fianna Minor Footballers made it a League AND Championship Double Success this year by winning the Minor Football A Shield Final against Rhode last Tuesday week in Gracefield on a scoreline of 2-15 to 1-09 to add to their A League Final win earlier in the summer. This win means Na Fianna Football are the only club in the county in either football or hurling to win 2 A Titles in the Minor Grade this year. Na Fianna opened the scoring with the first 3 points before Rhode got off the mark with a goal from Aaron Keelaghan on 5 mins to draw level for the first and only time. Thereafter for the remainder of the half Na Fianna pulled clear adding 6 more points to Rhode’s 3 so at the break Na Fianna led 0-09 to 1-03. Rhode were first off the mark in the second half before Na Fianna quashed Rhode’s recovery hopes with their first goal on 2 mins when Lee Mulpeter’s high shot was blocked down by the Rhode keeper but in doing so he allowed Adam Mangan punch it to the net. Na Fianna added 4 points to Rhode’s 2 before sealing it with their second goal with 5 mins remaining a fine individual effort from midfielder Gavin Kelly. The scoring was completed with Rhode adding a further 3 points to Na Fianna’s 2. With the final whistle Na Fianna were the winners and Offaly Fixtures Secretary Niall Gleeson presented the title to a delighted Na Fianna Captain Lee Mulpeter.
