Meath SFC Round 2

O’Mahonys too strong for Rathkenny

Navan O’Mahonys kept Rathkenny scoreless in the second half to win this Senior Championship second round match played in blustery Kilberry last Sunday 29th April.

Navan O’Mahonys 1-11

Rathkenny 0-05

The Navan men were quickest out of the blocks with three points inside the opening four minutes, playing against a very strong breeze.  Rathkenny veteran Donal Curtis half volleyed the men in red and blacks opener on six minutes. The deficit was reduced to the minimum when Brian Lenehan expertly converted a long range free. O’Mahonys extended the lead with their final score of the half on seventeen minutes. The remainder of the half belonged to Rathkenny in the scoring stakes as Richie Timmons, Jack Gore and Owen Elliott points edged Rathkenny in front at half time.

The wind picked up considerably in the second half with the scoring belonging to the Navan men as they tagged on 1-7 without reply. Their goal came on 53 minutes to leave the game over as a contest on a 1-09 to 0-05 scoreline. Rathkenny will be disappointed with their second half performance and will hope to improve matters in future games.
