St Rynaghs U16 footballers played Ballinamere-Durrow in the championship at the away venue on Monday evening 18th April last.  On a perfect pitch and a sunny evening, conditions were ideal for football.  Ballinamere-Durrow had a point from play in the first five minutes.  Saints left corner forward Dean flynn replied instantly with a great point from play. On the 12 minute mark saints right half forward Michael James raced through for a great goal.  Ballinamere-Durrow sucker punched St Rynaghs with a goal and a point from play within 5 minutes.  Saints left half back Shane Healy and centre forward Evan Keane traded points to leave the score at half time St Rynaghs 1-3 Ballinamere-Durrow 1-2.  Ten minutes into the second half Ballinamere-Durrow had an astonishing 2-4 on the score board and there was no way back for St Rynaghs until Dean Flynn scored a great goal from play, his team mate Andy Wynne playing at left half forward laying on a great pass in the process.  Almost immediatly Ronan Hughs who came on as a sub at full forward scored a great point from play.  Ballinamere-Durrow roarded back down the field scoring 2-3.  On the 12th minute Dean Flynn had a 30m free from the ground which went all the way to the back of the net.  Again Michael James who was creating huge problems for the Ballinamere-Durrow rear guard scored his second goal.  Dean Flynn followed up with two 30m frees.  Ballinamere-Durrow replied with a goal and two points one from a 21m free and in injury time Dean Flynn scored a 21m free to leave the score Ballinamere-Durrow 6-11 St Rynaghs 4-7.  The sparce attendance were treated to a cracking game with an avalanche of great scores.  It is hard to think that in St Rynaghs previous game against kilcormac-Killoughy they only scored 2 points in the entire game.  Fair dues to the lads for showing great pride in their jersey.  The only difference on the evening was that Ballinamere-Durrow were more clinical in front of goal and St Rynaghs had some great chances in the first half which they did not take.  If these young fellows play a bit more football together in training there is a great future for this team.
Best for St Rynaghs:  Goal keeper Michael Dolan could not do anything about any of the goals scored against him.  His fielding of the ball was brilliant at times.  Colm Daly played a captains part at centre half back, likewise Shane Healy at no 7.  Ciaran Fogarty played well at midfield and in the forwards, left corner forward Dean Flynn played a fine game hitting 2-4.  Right half forward Michael James also played well scoring two goals and Andy Wynne who's strong running and crisp passing was a joy to watch on the left flank.
St Rynaghs Team:  Michael Dolan, Eoin Gannon, Niall Higgins, Martin Daly, Evan Conroy, Colm Daly (Capt), Shane Healy 0-1, Ciaran Fogarty. Martin Byrne, Michael James 2-0, Evan Keane 0-1, Andy Wynne, Darren Healy, James Daly, Dean Flynn 2-4.  Subs:  Ronan Hughs 0-1 for James Daly, Alan Moylan for Martin Byrne, Michael McLoughlin for Michael James, Tomás Leonard for Eoin Gannon.  Referee:  Pat Flemming, Clara.
Our Club would like to offer sencere condolences to the Smith family, Banagher Street, Cloghan on the recent passing of Mikie.  Also the Redmond  family, Attinkee, Banagher on the recent passing of Cissy.
All Roads lead to Killeigh on Saturday 30th April, St Rynaghs senior footballers play Gracefield in the first round of the championship at 5 pm.  Everyone in the parish who is interested in football should get behind the green and white hoops and hope they will come back with a victory on Saturday evening next.
