Tir Chonaill Gaels – St Kiernans Match Prediction | 06-10-2019 09:30

Liam Gavaghan stepped up to direct the resulting free over the bar in what was the final play of the game as the Gaels ran out 2 point winners on a score line of 2-09 to 1-10. This meant the Gaels had to see out the remainder of the match with 14 men, but they withstood intense pressure to turn the ball over and deliver it into Hanlon situated inside the 21 yard line, who was fouled by his man following a great turn. All the pressure was then on Kiernans, who found themselves in an unfamiliar position as they chased the game for the first time as the clock ticked towards the final 5 minutes.Tempers began to fray, and the unforgiving Matty Maher was taking no prisoners as he gave TCGs Gary McGee his marching orders courtesy of a 2ndyellow.

TCG U14 Girls played Taras in a thrilling match with scores galore by both teams. Highest scoring game of any league game this year. Taras scored 11 points to TCGs 2 points but it was the goals that won the game for TCG in the end. Special thanks to London LGFA Chairwoman Lucia Butler for presenting TCG with the Cup and to Eoin Hourigan for refereeing the game.

This appeared to be the catalyst that the Gaels needed however, and a surging run through the middle of the pitch from captain Liam Gavaghan saw him send the ball over the bar after good link up play with Ryan Elliott.

Hes been my player of the year for us. Hes an English-born lad in his early 20s and has set the standard for us. Im sure St Kiernans will be keeping an eye on him. Ive been really impressed with Liam Gavigan for us this season. Its going to be a good day for London football, he told The Irish Post.

One moment please...

A great end to the season for our Senior Ladies squad who overcame Holloway in the final of the Monica Dee Tournament today in Greenford. Captain Fiona Morrisse...y accepted the shield from the late Monica Dees husband Con. Many thanks to the county board for organising and to Con for sponsoring such a great tournament in memory of his beloved wife.

The 2 teams once again traded frees before TCG got their first goal of the game with their final play right on the stroke of half time. Kiernans managed to respond themselves thanks to a free and a point from their midfielder James Moran, who frustratingly blazed over the bar when he had been put clean through on goal. Killian Butler was the beneficiary of some great pressure and work rate from the Gaels who turned the ball over just inside the Kiernans half and when Marc Gottsche laid it off to the on-running Butler, he finished low into the bottom corner past the keeper.

In what was a repeat of last years championship decider, it was the current champions St Kiernans that came out of the starting blocks the brightest to register the first score of the game after 2 minutes. Tir Chonaill Gaels went into battle with old rivals St Kiernans on a lovely Sunday afternoon at the new McGovern Park in Ruislip.

However, luckily in Killian Butler and Ryan Elliot, the Gaels had 2 go to men to help get them out of jail. Firstly, Butler responded with a lovely score from a tight angle when under pressure. Next, Elliott pointed following a turnover ball from a poor Kiernans kick out which meant the difference between the teams was back to the minimum once more at the mid-way point of the second half. Then came another 2 pointed frees from the boot of Adrian Moyles, as the Gaels ill-discipline in defence was continually being punished by St Kiernans.
