Glin Rovers A V Athea Utd 3-2
A terrific win for the A team this morning with 2 goals from John Wallace and 1 from his brother James securing the 3 points for Glin in a tough game.
Glin Opened the Scoring in the first half with a John Wallace goal but Athea Pulled one back 5 minutes later to make it 1-1. Athea went on to have the better of the last 20 minutes in the first half but Glin’s backline of Karol Geoghegan, Gary Culhane, Brian O’Donovan and James Wallace held steadfast and the game went in level at half time.
Athea went ahead a couple of minutes into the second half but following this Glin went on to grab the game by the scruff of the neck. Glin’s midfield of Joe Martin, Oliver Wallace, Kevin Sweeney and David O Sullivan were instrumental today in helping Glin win. Joe and Olly put in some great tackles today and David O Sullivan was a constant threat down the left wing working very well with Jack Costello. Kevin Sweeney was Glin’s man of the match today, constantly in the thick of the action.
John Wallace put in a great game today and he scored a second in the second half followed by brother James’s goal to give Glin a deserved 3-2 lead going into the last 20 minutes. Athea should have equalised on 88 minutes when a well taken shot from inside the box cannoned off the Crossbar, from that an Athea player hit a great shot from the left handside of the pitch, it was heading into the bottom right hand side of our net only for Michael Stack to somehow as he was moving to his right he managed to change direction and dive low to his left to deflect the ball out for an Athea Corner. It was a brilliant save from Glin’s NO. 1.
Team: M Stack, K Geoghegan, G Culhane, B O’Donovan, J Wallace, J Martin, K Sweeney, O Wallace, D O’Sullivan, J Costello & J Wallace. E Mulvihill, A Mulvihill & P O’Shaughnessy.

Glin Rovers A v Granagh 2-0
Scorers: Joe Martin & David Sullivan.
Uncle/nephew combination was the key to Glin’s win on Sunday morning.
The A’s travelled to Granagh and came away with all 3 points in a hard fought victory in very tough conditions. Scoring two goals was great in this mornings weather with heavy rain and strong winds but credit to our defence and keeper for keeping a clean sheet. Joe Martin got our first goal in the first half and his nephew David Sullivan scored the second mid way through the second half with two assists from Ger Riordan.
Great credit for the 13 players who played in the terrible conditions and came away with maximum points and a clean sheet.
Team: Michael Stack. Karol Geogehan, Gary Culhane, Brian Donovan, James Wallace. Joe Martin, Kevin Sweeney, Jack Fitzgerald, David Sullivan. Darren Sheahan & Ger Riordan
