ACFL Division 3
St. Agnes 2-9 St. Comgall’s 2-20
This meeting of Division 3’s two unbeaten sides had all the makings of a cracker and didn’t disappoint with Naomh Una in a strong position at half time when they led by 1-5 to 0-7. However the men from Antrim town got their game together after the break, adding an impressive 2-13 to their first half total to run out winners by 11 points.
It was the Aggies who came racing out of the blocks and they had the ball in the St. Comgall’s net straight from the throw in but from the resulting kick out Naomh Comhghall stormed up the field but the width of the post denied them a goal and they had to settle for a point.
Both sides were guilty of poor shooting in the opening half but it was St. Agnes who held a narrow one point lead at the break, the score 1- to 0-7 in favour of the Belfast side.
After the break Naomh Comhghall stepped it up a gear and their pace and movement started to open up gaps in a stretched Naomh Una defence and the scores came thick and fast.
The Antrim town men now lead the division 3 table and remain the only side unbeaten in the division but they are closely followed by St. Mary’s Rasharkin, Naomh Padraig Lisburn and St. Agnes who all sit just two points behind them.
