Na Fianna U13 Footballers bounced back from their opening round defeat to record an emphatic win over Gracefield in Rd 2 of the League last Friday evening in Geashill on a scoreline of 4-16 to 1-02. Restricted to playing 13 a side as Gracefield had just the bare 13 so from the moment Adam Carthy opened the scoring with a goal for Na Fianna inside the first min followed quickly by 2 pointed frees there was only going to be one team in it despite the fact that after 5 mins Gracefield had got off the mark with 1-01 but for the remainder of the half it was 1 way traffic as Na Fianna tagged on 2-04 without reply with the goals scored by Dan Daly and Adam Carthy so at the break Na Fianna led 3-05 to 1-02. In the second half there was no letup as Na Fianna continued their onslaught dispatching 1-11 to just a single pointed free to Gracefield with the Na Fianna goal blasted to the net by Ryan Kinahan.
NA FIANNA: Killian McHugh, Ronan Brophill, Finn McCormack, Cian Malone (0-02), Brian Connolly, Rory Grehan, Eoin Dunne (0-01), Danny Gorman (0-04), Peter McKeagney, Kevin Sweeney (0-02), John Greene, Adam Carthy (2-00), Cein Gorman (0-04).
SUBS: Ryan Kinahan (1-00), Cillian Murphy, Finn Hassett, Dan Daly (1-02), Sam Dunne, Aaron Rattigan (0-01), Cillian Murphy.
