Ice cool McInerney secures points for Ernesiders

Senior Division 3
13 June 2015
Buncrana 1-11
Aodh Ruadh 2-9

Aodh Ruadh extended their unbeaten league run to seven games in Buncrana, but it required some late heroics from Diarmaid McInerney to secure the points. The hosts were in good form and put up a good battle especially in the first half where they ran Ballyshannon ragged. Aodh Ruadh had opened the scoring with a goal from Barry Mulligan, but after that the Scarvey men took ownership of the game and the interval scores were 1-10 to 1-2 in their favour. The visitors had the wind behind them in the second period and a Seamus Kane goal provided Aodh Ruadh with the ideal start to the half. The Ernesiders confined the homesters to just one point in the second 30, while steadily eating into their lead. Diarmaid McInerney got the equaliser with a few minutes of normal time left, before stepping up to nail a tricky 30 metre dead ball to give Aodh Ruadh full points.
