Loughgiel's All-Ireland semi-final.

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post

Before travelling down to the game,could not see where Loughgiels scores would come from and thats how it turned out.
In the first half Loughgiel played really well and should have been going in at half time leading but due to the inability
of the fowards went in behind.The six backs played really well as did DD Quinn,midfield not too bad either.
The intensity of their play and tackling was excellent and the fowards were seeing plenty of the ball but doing very little
wih it.Watson missed three easy frees plus a seventy and easy chances were spurned.Eventually Loughgiels inability to
take scores cost them with Gaels getting a couple of soft goals.As already mentioned thought back end of team very good
particular J.Campell and M.Scullion.Personally speaking thought Gaels were there for the taking and one other point like to mention
the persistent playing of a player in a certain position when allthrough the season he has failed too perform.One final point to
shenboli about the Kilkenny club scene,Ballyhale Shamrocks,a league that has provided players to one of the finest hurling teams
of our time ,sure its a weak club scene?????????????

OLG werent that good on sat but lgiel wernt much better. i was concerned that if liam didnt get the scores then they would be in bother and i was right. fair play to the other lads but the forwards were a big let down. you can miss 65's and easy frees at that level and expect to win.
the 3 goals all came from defensive mistakes as well.
a real learning curve for lgiel and it proves just how hard it is to actually win an all ireland these days.
