Drummond stars a Reserves return to winning ways

Senior Reserve Division 3
7 May 2016
Aodh Ruadh 1-13
Letterkenny Gaels 0-9
Father Tierney Park.

The reserves got back to winning ways at home to Letterkenny Gaels on Saturday evening. The hosts were dominant throughout, but were wasteful in taking the early chances, going for goal when the game was in need of opening scores. The visitors were twice able to take the lead, only to be pegged back by points from Anthony 'Waddle' Coughlin and Dermot Slevin mid-way through the half. From there on however it was all Aodh Ruadh. Further points from Aiden Murray, Ronan Drummond, Slevin and Cáelán Drummond saw the home side go in at the break leading 0-8 to 0-2. The pick of the scores was Aiden Murray's free from 40 metres, that one bringing out the loudest cheer of the day.

Aodh Ruadh kept the momentum up at the start of the second half adding on the next two scores. The Gaels eventually managed to find some rhythm and started chipping away at the lead. A timely well taken goal from Cáelán Drummond restored the home side's comfortable lead and made sure the game was in the bag. Aodh Ruadh managed another brace including a cool point from Val Murray following his trademark dummy to finish the match on a winning scoreline of 1-13 to 0-9. Best for Aodh Ruadh was undoubtedly Cáelán Drummond, whilst Aiden Murray and Darren Gethins controlled midfield throughout.
