Our final league game of the year was against our near neighbours Athea. We got off to a flying start with a score within 10 seconds with Pádraig Scanlon, finishing cleverly from a Paul Sheehan assist. We looked bright in the opening stages with Sheagh O Connor and Ronan Culhane dominating the first quarter, however we conceded two quick goals midway through the half which left us with a mountain to climb. Another Scanlon score and two from Ronan Culhane narrowed Athea’s lead. Our lads fought back with a few minutes to go and smart scores from Jack Sheehan, Paul Sheehan and O Connor left us four points down with seconds left in the first half. A stroke of small fortune came our way, when a foul on the edge of the Athea box was deemed a penalty by referee Seanie Hartnett. Paul Sheehan converted the 3 pointer to leave the score at half time 2-4 to 1-6.
The second half was a dominant display by the black and white. A flood of goals came our way following some great passages of play from our defence, namely Maurice Fitzgerald and Eoin Wolfe. Sheagh O Connor led the scoring with two goals, only for Cian Culhane to replicate the feat with two goals of his own. From there we pulled away and kicked a further six points in the half to end whatever resistance the opposition threw our way! The game ended Glin 5-12 – Athea 2-7. We now look forward to our Championship opener in six weeks’ time.
