AFL 10 North

O'Dwyers 2-08 Round Towers Lusk 0-09


The Juniors started their 2013 league campaign with a hard fought win over a determined Towers side on Sunday afternoon.


The home side struck first with an early point but when Rory Fatherty picked up the ball on the oppositions 21 yard line beat his man and finished to the net, O’Dwyers never looked back.
Emmett Mc Carroll added a couple of points before Dean Thompson raised another green flag which left O’Dwyers six points up at the break.


The second half was a much tighter affair with Lusk looking to gain a foot hold in the game with a couple of early scores, but O’Dwyers responded brilliantly with Rory Fatherty and Jamie Andrews giving a fielding Master class in the middle of the park. Danny Kelly and Mick Green were solid in full back line and Peter Donoughe continued his recent good form between the posts with two excellent saves at vital stages in the game.


O’Dwyers can take a lot of positives from the game none more so than the performance of the minors lads all who showed great work rate and an abundance of ability, but the tally of 10 wides will have to be tightened before the visit of Beann Eadair this Sunday in the cup.


O’Dwyers: P Donoughe, M Green, C Nulty, D Kelly, P Crawford, C Cawley, C Cleary, J Andrews, R Fatherty, D Thompson, C O’Reilly, J O’Brien, J Lyons,P  O'Connor, E Mc Carroll, A O’Neill, D Fox, P Comoford, S Bayly

O'Dwyers 2-6

Clann Mhuire 1-6


A blend of youth and experience seems to be proving the right formula for the O'Dwyers management team of Ronan Nally and Joe Nulty as the Juniors opened their cup campaign with a win over local rivals Clann Mhuire last Sunday afternoon in Balbriggan.

Goals from Alan Howley and Colm O;Reilly as well as  scores from the evergreen Emmitt Mc Carroll and Minor Jamie Lyons seen the home team over the line in this tight affair ,O"Dwyers Defence Look solid With minor Keeper Peter Donoughe looking like he is going to be one to watch for the future with a string of fine saves and a faultless display as well as minor teammate  Darragh Boyne excelling in the half back line, coupled with a welcome return of Daniel Dunne to the middle of the field after a long sabbatical from the game.

Round Towers Lusk will prove the next test for this emerging team this Sunday away in the League @ 15.00 in Lusk  and we wish all the lads and the management all the best for the season.
