Men’s Division One:
Glenanne 4 (Shane O’Donoghue, Graham Shaw 2, Alan Lewis) TRR 0
Given their busy schedule in the next ten days, Glenanne produced the perfect opening salvo to keep their division one title bid on track as they raced into a 3-0 lead within 25 minutes at St Mark’s last night. That lead gave Arul Anthoni greater leeway to rotate players as his side faces into a run of five league matches in ten days.
Shane O’Donoghue opened the scoring following Eddie O’Malley’s turnover on halfway before Paul Fitzpatrick played an integral role in the second, overlapping down the right flank before squaring to Graham Shaw who finished first time.
Shaw netted again from a broken down corner for a commanding lead and Alan Lewis added the insurance goal in the second half. Three Rock were not without their chances but Steven Doran did what he needed to do, most notably stick-saving from Sven Galjaardt’s drag-flick. He may be a big miss on Sunday for the visit of Pembroke as he attends a wedding.
