South West Antrim Under 16 Football Championship – Breslin Cup
Glenravel 1-10 Aghagallon 1-04
Con Magees Glenravel booked their place in the final of the Breslin Cup (U16 Football) thanks mainly to their first half dominance which saw them go in at half time leading by 1-6 to 0-0. During the second half Agahallon got themselves back into the game but they had left themselves just too much to do and the home side steadied the ship in the final quarter to book a final spot against Sean Stinsons in five weeks’ time.
Glenravel were on top from the start and an early point from play by Sean McKay followed by one from a free from Rian Lennon gave them an early cushion. McKay hit his second in the sixth minute and Lennon followed suit two minutes later to put them four clear. Aghagallon were making very little impact on a solid Glenravel defence but though they had lots of possession it was a further thirteen minute before the home side raised their next flag from an Eoin Hynds free. Daragh Donaghy finished off a good move with a Glenravel point on 26 minutes before Sean McKay finished the half with a sweetly taken goal to give his team a 1-6 to 0-0 half time lead.
Aghagallon were positive after the resumption and early points from a Michael McStravick free and one from play from Liam Russell got them going. Glenravel came back strongly and three points in as many minutes from Sean McKay (2) and Rian Lennon put them back in control. A goal from Aghagallon’s Liam Russell followed by Ruairi McShane point closed the gap to six again but the home side put up the shutters and a late pointed free from Sean McKay sealed the final place.
