East Mayo Junior Championship Swinford v Eastern Gaels

We got off to a great start with a JP Broderick goal straight from the throw in which should have urged us to push on but Eastern Gaels came right back and within ten minutes the game was level.

Eastern Gaels proceeded to go into a three point lead as we approached half time. We then found our game and three points from Danny McNicholas, Adrian Forkan and JP Broderick had the game level at the break.

The visitors got the first point of the second half to go back into the lead. Some great defensive work by the Swinford forwards led to the ball been overturned and played into JP Broderick and no better man to have in front of goals as he grabbed his second goal of the game.

From there on in it was all Swinford and the game should have been put out of sight of Eastern Gaels but for some poor finishing. Adrian Forkan extended our lead from a free before we had a catalogue of wides before two more points from Adrian Forkan, one from play and the second from a free pushed our lead to 5.

Eastern Gaels pulled one back before points from JP Broderick and Adrian Forkan saw out the game on a finish of Swinford 2-8 Eastern Gaels 0-8.

We now go on to play Bohola Moy Davitts to see who proceeds out of the group.

Swinford: Gavin Moore, Aiden McLoughlin, Paul McDonagh, John Gerard Kelly, Mark McNicholas, Kevin Barry, Sean Prendergast, Michael Walsh, Steven Walsh, Cillian O’Donnell, Danny McNicholas, Michael Prendergast, Adrian Forkan, JP Broderick, Anthony Friel. Subs: Gearoid Brady, Andy Lenehan, James Sweeney

Scorers: JP Broderick 2-3, Adrian Forkan 0-4, Danny McNicholas 0-1
