St. Anne’s N.S., Navan 10-8 Slane N.S. 7-6
St. Anne’s N.S. came out on top in this second round game in Páirc Tailteann. They had a breeze in the first half and dominated possession and the scoreboard in those first twenty five minutes. The score at half time was 6-5 to 2-3 the break. But for ace defending from Matthew Kealy, Daragh Russell Kerins and Josh Smyth, the gap would have been wider. Alex Devin impressed in the forward line with 1-1 to his name.
Slane started the second half in a completely different fashion. They tackled hard and moved the ball with pace, learning the lessons of the first half. Evan Murray was to the fore in the forwards with 2-2, while Tadhg Martyn finished with one goal and a point also. Congratulations to Matthew Kealy and Altay Guneyer, who are in their first year playing for the school.
