A spirited and well organised Aghaderg senior football team really turned on the style in this impressive Junior Championship victory over Mitchels in Drumgath.

In a well contested opening quarter Aghaderg’s forwards were in lethal form and a Niall Lennon goal saw them race into a 1-3 to 0-0 lead. Mitchels responded with a few well taken points but when Louis Murray burst through for a goal, Aghaderg found themselves holding a well-deserved eight point lead. A Mitchel’s goal left the Reds leading 2-7 to 1-5 at the interval.

The start of the second half saw a Mitchel’s revival and within ten minutes of the restart the sides were level at 2-7 each. Aghaderg’s prospects were looking bleak and a brilliant point blank save from goalkeeper Paul McGrath prevented Mitchels from taking the lead. That proved to be the turning point and when Aghaderg swept upfield, Calum Meara struck the games decisive score when he lobbed the goalkeeper for goal number three.

The impact of players introduced from the bench and some clever use of the ball saw a confident Aghaderg dominate the remainder of the game as they added seven further unanswered points to coast home by ten clear points.
Excellent performance.

Aghaderg 3-14 Newry Mitchels 2-7.
