St. Fiacc’s 1

Mill bounced back from being one nil down at the break to grab a share of the points in this evenly contested match in Ballytore on Sunday.

The visitors should have taken the lead after 20 minutes but Brian O’Rourke failed to connect properly from ten yards. The Graiguecullen side were rewarded for their efforts when Ross Hennessy controlled the ball and smashed an unstoppable half volley from 30 yards to give Fiacc’s the lead. James Fahey could have equalised for the home side but his screamer struck the crossbar.

The Ballytore side started the second half very strong with chances by Jason McHugh, Euan Cullen and James Fahey going close and only for some excellent last ditch defending from Fiacc’s Wayne Humphries and Shane Aylward they were kept out. Saints should have doubled their lead but Matthew Power saw his penalty saved by the Corey Maher in the Mill goal. Within a couple of minutes, the home side equalised when Eoin O’Neill stabbed the ball home following good work by sub Fionn O’Rourke. It was end to end for the last 15 but neither team could find the winner.

Players of note for Mill were James Fahey, Eoin O’Neill, Corey Maher and Brian Malone. Best for Fiacc’s in a good battling performance were Patrick Scully, Mícheál Loughman and Brian O’Rourke.
