Nagle runs riot against depleted St. Gall’s

ACFL Division 1B

St. Gall’s 0-8 St. Enda’s 6-17

Fionn Nagle ran riot as St. Enda’s swept aside a depleted St. Gall’s at Milltown on Saturday afternoon. Number 14 Nagle scored 4 first half goal and added another in the second half but the Glengormley men’s biggest win of the season came too late to save their division 1 status.

Sean Murray 0-2 and Donal Walsh 0-2 kicked early points with Callum Walsh replying with two for the home side before Nagle got his personal scoring spree going from a free.

Suddenly the visitors were flying as Fionn Nagle finished a well-executed attack to the net and the same player followed quickly with another as St. Enda’s took control.

Nagle was causing havoc as he pointed from a Mark and then completed his hat-trick with another polished finish and he would finish the half with a personal tally of 4-3.

Donal Walsh, who had a good game on the ‘40’ added a 5th goal for the Hightown side to put the contest out of site as St. Enda’s led 5-11 to 0-5 at the halfway stage.

HT 0-4 TO 5-11

Things didn’t get any better for the Milltown side on the restart as Donal Walsh and Odhran Eastwood struck early points for the visitors before the superb Nagle fired home his fifth goal of the evening and that was that.

The goals dried up after that but returning county player, James McAuley fired over a fine point and Donal Walsh, Ronan O’Neill and Sean Murray all got their names on the scorecard for the Glengormley side.

St. Gall’s were well beaten at this stage but they did manage to add to their total with the best of these coming from Michael Hopkins with a great point from near the sideline.

Brendan Bradley added two and Niall Fallon was also on target for a St. Gall’s side who were already safe following their draw with St. Brigid’s last Wednesday night while St. Enda’s best performance of the season came too late to stave off relegation to division 2.
