Championship win

Following their defeat against Gortletteragh in the opening round of the Senior Championship, Drumreilly showed vast improvement by defeating Kiltubrid by 1-10 to 1-7 in Páirc Seán, Ck on Shannon on last Saturday evening. They took an early lead with a 2nd minute point courtesy of Nigel Maguire, followed by a second score two minutes later when the flying James Holahan put Conor Gaffney through. Kiltubrid levelled the scores and took the lead in the 14th minute. Brian Fee gave his side parity five minutes later, and in the 22nd minute reliable free-taker Nigel Maguire gave Drumreilly a

short-lived lead, taken away by Dermot McKeon. With the interval beckoning Dermot Holahan reacted best to a ball that came down from high on the right upright as he arrowed to the net. The goal proved inspirational, lifting the winners’ game to a higher plain in which they picked off unanswered scores from Nigel Maguire (pt.) and Brian Fee (2pts.) in the final minutes of the half to leave the interval score sheet reading 1-7 to 0-4. On the resumption Drumreilly suffered early anxious moments when Kiltubrid, through for a possible goal, spurned the opportunity. Surrendering possession all too easily they allowed Kiltubrid to profit with a point each from the boots of James

Gill and Eoin Dolan to narrow the gap to four points. With high-fielding midfielder Declan Maxwell performing tirelessly all over the pitch and John McKeon fetching safely under the cross-bar Kiltubrid were denied richer reward. Midway through the half Maxwell and Brian Fee combined well for the latter to stretch the winners’ lead to five points. Kiltubrid, building from defence were cruelly denied by the Drumreilly crossbar as a sizzling drive cannoned to safety. By contrast Drumreilly continued to enjoy good fortune as

their most prolific forward Brian Fee, gaining possession from a kick-out finished his solo with his fifth point. Kiltubrid, in arrears by six points were in no mood for surrender, and pushed forward with menace, only to see a sizzling shot canon off the woodwork, but on this occasion it ended in the net. Nigel Maguire lifted the siege with a fine point. In the dying minutes disciplined defending by all, with the duo McKeon- Maxwell especially prominent and a top-drawer save by goalie Mick McGirl enabled Drumreilly to weather the storm, and confine Kiltubrid to their last point. The following was the Drumreilly panel: Mick McGirl, Ronan McCartin, Seán Fee, Anthony

Holahan, Graeme Taylor, John McKeon, Donal McCabe, Declan Maxwell, Nigel Maguire (4pts.), Cormac Maguire, James Holahan, Brian Fee

(5pts.), Dylan Mimna, Conor Gaffney, Dermot Holahan (goal), Ollie Maguire, Fergal Mitchell, Niall Gallogly, Adrian McGirl, Niall Maguire, Gerard Houston, Charlie McElchar and Ciaran Mitchell.
