Club Notes 23rd April 2017

Seniors and Reserves

The seniors faced neighbours Castledawson on Sunday afternoon and got off to a bright start opening up a 4 point lead after 8 minutes. By the 16th minute the Dawson had reduced the deficit to the minimum however soon after Odhrán McGlone superbly slotted the ball to back of the net to restore the 4 point advantage.   Both teams exchanged points before the half to leave h/t score Newbridge 1-07 Castledawson 0-06. The Bridge played with the breeze in the second half and increased their lead to 7 by the 37th minute but this was to be their last score for 18 minutes as endless pressure was not reflected on the scoreboard as wide after wide was kicked.   The visitors were more economical in front of goals scoring 4 in a row to leave 3 between the teams going into the final 10 minutes. A long range effort by Danny Mulholland in the 55th minute turned out to be the winning score as the Dawson scored a goal in injury time to leave a tense final few minutes. F/t score Newbridge 1-11 Castledawson 1-10.

Newbridge scorers were O McGlone (1-02), C Doherty & P McGrogan (0-02 each), M Bateson, C Brooks, D McColgan and E Burke (0-01 each).

The reserves played on Saturday evening and dominated the game right from the off running out easy winners on a scoreline of Newbridge 5-21 Castledawson 1-12. Newbridge scorers were T Walls (1-06), P McCann (1-03), J McLarnon (1-02), C Diamond (1-01), D Martin (1-00), A McGlone (0-04), P Murphy (0-03), D McGuigan & R McNabb (0-01 each).
