St. Kevin’s GAA (1-9)
O’Raghallaigh’s (3-15)

The Kevin’s mens team visited the O’Raghallaigh’s for the Third Round in the Hollywood Developments Division 2 League last night. The hosts gained the upper hand from the throw-in with uncontested possession for the first 20 minutes of the game. An early goal from the O’Raghallaigh’s in the first 11 minutes sent the Drogheda men on the way resulting in a 1-3 lead before Cameron Maher opened the Kevin’s scores with a point. The O’Raghallaigh’s finished the first half on top following some well-taken scores which built up a 1-9 to 0-4 lead.

With the opening of the second half, the Philipstown men changed the narrative of the game. A free point from Lee Crosbie opened up the scoreboard quickly followed by points from Tom Matthews and Cameron Maher with little response.  The Kevin’s supporters saw a beacon of hope for a potential  turning moment for the team when Cian Callan and Patrick Clarke passed the ball into Lee Crosbie to take a quick goal, however unfortunately for the Philipstown side, it was judged to be a supposed square ball and an injured Cian Callan had to retire from the game. Similar to Karl Martin who received an injury early in the first half. This spurred the Drogheda team into action and widened the gap in the score to a point where there was no return for the Philipstown side.
The team will go on to the fourth round of the Hollywood Developments Division 2 League against Naomh Finbarra at home in Philipstown at 7:30pm.
