Newbridge GAC Club Notes 14th May

Senior Football
The senior footballers faced Kilrea on Sunday in Kilrea. The bridge without veteran forward Danny Mulholland and his hair piece started well with a Peter McGrogan Free which was pulled back trough a kilrea free. followed by two scores in quick succession the bridge led 3-1 after thirteen minutes however a purple patch for kilrea saw them turn a 2 point deficit into a three point lead befor two more scores from Peter saw the bridge go in at half time a point down. Kilrea again started the second half well however Newbridge again pulled the game back to a one point affair through a score from Nathan Rocks after he threw his considerable weight around the middle of the field to shrug off two kilrea challenges and a sublimely taken effort by Kevin Sweeney who found himself at the end of a terrific newbridge move to slot the ball over the bar under little pressure fro the kilrea defence. Kilrea again puled out a two point lead which was then pegged back by Peter McGrogn who was a torture for kilrea on the day, however entering the ast 5 minutes the game really came alive with Newbridge being denied a clear penalty and  KIlrea missing an easy free to make it a two point game. Entering the last couple of minutes the bridge increased their pressure on the kilrea team who had been given there fill of it until this point  following a magnificent point blank stop by the bridge keeper Michael O’Neill,  with yet another Peter McGrogan free bringing the game back to a point before the bridge hassled and hariied a kilrea player into foulng the ball close to the sideline which was then moved in by the referee to allow Peter to again slot over yet another free to draw a game which the bridge will feel they let slip away. The ball was then kicked out and as Peter landed from fielding a magnificient catch the referee blew for full time bringing to an end the contest.
