Cill Chartha 1-08 Glenswilly 1-07

 

Late Cill Chartha comeback seals the points

Four points in a row to no reply in the last six minutes moved Cill Chartha back to the top of division one following a trilling match in Towney on Saturday evening played at championship tempo it looked like Glenswilly had two vital league points won but the home side showed great spirit to fight back to take the two points to maintain their 100% home record. The home side got off to a good start from a Aodhain McGinley penalty after Darragh O’Donnell was dragged down in the box on four minutes following a great trough ball from Michael Hegarty, seven minutes later Mark Sweeney got the home sides first point of the game, the impressive Garry McFadden opened Glenswillys account on 16 minutes while a minute earlier Philip O’Donnell pulled of a great save to deny Ashley Carr a goal, the same player got a point from play on 20 minutes. Oisin Crawford pointed and a few minutes later a high ball in was not dealt with by the home defence was fisted to the net by Patrick McFadden to level it up at 1-02 each. Michael Hegarty hit a fine point on the stroke of half time to leave the home side a point up.

Glenswilly started better in the second half with three McFadden points one from a 45 and another from the side line with Ciaran McGinley getting a point during the early stages of the second half while Patrick McFadden received a black card also in this period of the match. Darren McGinley put Glenswilly 1-07 to 1-04 up with ten minutes to go and at that stage their only looked to be one winner but a fine point from Aodhain McGinley inspired the Cill Chartha lads on and with Mark Sweeney pointing a minute later it left just a point in it, Cormac Cannon hit a wonderful equalising point with two to go before a frantic ending to the match with Glenswilly attacking for a winner Cill Chartha broke up the field and despite the best efforts of the Glenswilly defense Mark Sweeney managed to get the ball over the bar in the third minute of injury time to seal a fine win.

Cill Chartha reserves also had a fine comeback trailing 3-03 to 0-02 at half time they kept Glenswilly scoreless in the second half and got a goal in the last minute to take the points.
