St. Pat’s vs Moate CS on November 23rd

Mr. O’Rourke, Mr. Killeen and Mr. Monaghan made four changes to the side that lost narrowly to Knockbeg two weeks ago. Winning was a must if the team were to have any chance of qualifying for the knockout rounds of the championship.

St. Pat’s were awarded a penalty in the opening minutes and Aaron Lynch made no mistake to put it in the bottom corner. St. Pat’s looked like a team full of confidence and Aaron Lynch added a few points to extend the advantage. Rory Gordon also added a point before the break.

Aaron Lynch was very clinical and added another goal after half-time. Eoghan Gough then made an immediate impact scoring the third Pat’s goal. Brian Maguire was then dismissed after seeing a straight red card, which left many puzzled as to why it was shown. The umpires had reported an off the ball incident and Pat’s had to play on with 14 men.

Sean Conlon of Simonstown, Trim’s Aaron Lynch and Sean Carey from Seneschalstown all impressed for the Pat’s side against Moate.

Final Score: Moate CS 1-11 St. Patrick’s Navan 3-08. A three point win means that Pat’s have a score difference of 0, having lost by three then won by three. St. Pat’s now rely on fixtures to go their way to qualify for the next round and sadly the chances of progressing are very slim for St. Pat’s.
