U21 Semi Final in Carlanstown
19th November 2016
Drumconrath/Meath Hill 3-12 Clann na nGael 0-17
Drumconrath/Meath Hill made the Final of the U21B for the 1st time as a combined team with a hard fought exciting win over a gallant Clann na nGael side hoping to make the Stiofáin OMealóid Cup Final for the second time in 3 years having won it in 2014.
Clann na nGael threatened to over run the North Meath lads early in cold and frosty Carlanstown as their fast paced well drilled style of football seen them point twice in 1st 3 minutes. Eamon O'Donnachada and Cian Swaine gave them a solid foothold in the centre of the field and the DMH lads looked out of sorts.
Daniel Byrne with a fine point from a free after 9 and soon after another free from Ian Malone had the sides level something which the North Meath team scarcely deserved as they where living on crumbs during this time.
Clann na nGael continued to dominate and pointed 3 times as the 1st quarter ended. Byrne added another free but Clann na nGael countered to leave it 0-6 to 0-3. DMH had taken remedial action and interdouced Kieran Slavin and Matthew Carolan and with Ryan Owens and Tómas Conlon coming more into the game, Conlon set Malone up for DMH's first point from play on 22 minutes.
These last 8 minutes were totally dominated by DMH as Slavin found space to fire expertly to the net and most people wondered how the team in Red and Blue led. Things got better as Shane McCabe won the resultant kick out and pointed from distance, McCabe added another and Conlon waltzed through the Clann defence to find the bottom corner of the net to send Drumconrath/Meath Hill in at half time 2-6 to 0-6 to the good.
A point within 10 seconds of the start of the second from Malone put DMH 7 points up and it looked as if they had the measure of Clann na nGael but the Athboy parish side had other ideas and took control again and had reeled off 4 points by the 37th minutes. Slavin, Owens and Conlon fired over defiant long range scores but it was only a short reprieve as a further 5 points from Clann na nGael had the score 2-10 to 0-15 with twelve minutes to go and the game was really in the melting pot.
DMH goalkeeper Dominic Yorke had pulled of some brilliant saves to keep his side in the game as time and time again he thwarted the rampant Clann na nGael attack to keep a clean sheet.
Conor O'Halloran steadied the Red and Blue ship with a score on 53 minutes and when Byrne found the net with a decisive 4 minutes left on the clock it looked as if DMH had finally shook off the stubborn Clann na nGael challenge.
Two further points from Clann na nGael left the dreaded 3 points in it but as the mounted one last charge McCabe somehow intercepted a ball in midfield and transfered the leather up-field were James Mooney was fouled and Byrne added the insurance point as the final whistle sounded on the kick out.
Credit must be given to both sides for providing a fine game of football and a great advertisement for this grade that kept the spectators enthralled right to the end on probably the coldest evening of the winter so far.
