Allen Gaels secure second win in Intermediate Championship

A black card for Adam O’ Hagan changed the dynamic of the tie, as Allen Gaels were able to work their scores late in the second half to secure victory.

It was a tight compact game up until O’Hagan saw black in the 45th minute, plenty of hand passing and slow build up play as neither could get those early opportunities coming easy.

Annaduff worked hard especially in the opening half, but once they lost a man the heads dropped and from here it was Allen Gaels who reaped all the spoils.

O’Hagan kicked Annaduff ahead in the opening seconds, but Ciaran McMotrrow had the hosts level after three minutes. Sean McNabola and Caelb Duffy exchanged scores by the 6th minute, as it was hard to separate the sides.

Martin Rafferty and Colin Moran ended the opening quarter with a point each, Allen Gaels ahead 0-4 to 0-2 but just could not get further ahead, Annadff finished the opening half well, two McNabola points and a point from Sean Quigley punishing a poor kickout, had them a 0-5 to 0-4 lead at halftime.

Two quick points after the restart, the latter by Cian Beirne, put Gaels back into the lead, just by the minimum it only lasted two minutes, Mcnabola accurate once more from a free. Quigley kicked another fine effort three minutes later to again give Annaduff the lead, this however would be their last score of the contest.

Moran pointed two frees just before the third quarter drew to a conclusion, but the main turning point was the black card, leaving the final 15 minutes in the hosts favour, Moran Ciaran McMorrow and Shane Beirne all added scores, for a 0-10 to 0-7 lead going into the final 10 minutes.

Sean Lynch finished off the tie with style notching a goal and a point as Annaduff just could not work their scores, Allen Gaels the happier to see themselves picking up momentum in the championship.
