posted 7 May 2012, 04:33 by Unknown user

Duleek/Bellewstown travelled to Rathkenny to take on St. Michaels in their first round game of the Junior C Championship.

Duleek/Bellewstown were first off the mark with a point by Dylan Kearney after 7 minutes. St. Michaels then registered 5 points to build up a 4 point lead before a converted 45 by Jamie Flaherty got the east Meath side back into the game. A well taken goal by Gareth Reilly followed by points from Tony Andrews and Flaherty as well as a goal from full forward Seamus Curley left Duleek/Bellewstown ahead by 2 points at the break.

Half Time: Duleek/Bellewstown 2-04 St. Michaels 0-08

Duleek/Bellewstown got the first score of the second half directly from the throw in. It was converted by Andrews who worked hard throughout the game.

Indeed Andrews accounted for 3 of the second half scores from Duleek/Bellewstown with Raymond Hamilton getting the other. St. Michaels went 2 points clear approaching full time, helped by the dismissal of Duleek/Bellewstown midfielder Jamie Flaherty. However those late points from Andrews and Hamilton helped to secure a fair result in a draw at the final whistle.

Best for Duleek/Bellewstown were Karl Reilly, Joey Joyce and Sean Kennedy in the backs, Simon Walsh and Jamie Flaherty at midfield, and the half forward line of Raymond Hamilton, Tony Andrews and Dylan Kearney.
