Ryan Fahey on song as Thomas Davis pip Barróg

Dublin MFC B/C

Thomas Davis were pushed all the way before eventually accounting for Naomh Barróg by 0-14 to 0-13 after extra-time in their Dublin Minor ‘B’ Football Championship final at Chanel on Sunday morning.

In what proved a tight and tense affair, the excellence of their respective free-takers was a key factor in the game and fittingly, it was Thomas Davis’ Ryan Fahey that converted the winning score in extra-time.

Jack Lynch had forced extra-time when levelling matters at 0-11 apiece at the end of normal time after Barróg had held the lead for the majority of the game thanks to Lynch’s accuracy and excellent individual displays from the likes of Emmet Mythen, Ruairí McDonald, Paddy Doyle, Aaron Comerford and Sean Gallagher.

However, their efforts proved in vain as their opponents edged home with Ross Mullarkey, Sean Benton, Kai Byrne and Harry Harmon all to the fore.

Regal Ravens

Dylan Kettle’s goal in the third quarter proved key as Fingal Ravens did just enough to overcome a battling St Patrick’s Donabate by 1-11 to 0-13 in their Dublin Minor ‘C’ Football Championship final at St Margaret’s.

The foundation for their victory lay in a solid defensive showing in which twins Jimmy Ryan and Ivan Ryan excelled while Billy Stafford and Conor Hannigan were others who kept a tight rein on the St Pat’s attack.

Further up the field, Ravens kept their scoreboard ticking over thanks to the contributions of Sam Hannigan, Ben Duffy, Jack Ryan, George Hickey and Justin Hogan, scores that were precious in such a tight affair.

St Pat’s emerged with great credit from the contest but six points from frees by Sean Collins in addition to impressive performances from the likes of Ruairi Whelan, Dylan Carr, Gavin Matthews and Ciaran Shiels failed to spare them from their fate by the final whistle.
