    AFL Div 1: Table Toppers Skryne Prove too Strong for Na Fianna


    Na Fianna: 1-06

    Skryne: 2-14


    Na Fianna produced a below-par display against an impressive Skryne side in Baconstown on Thursday evening which saw the visitors keep their 100% record intact with a seventh win.


    Na Fianna guilted two goal chances to the Tara men who duly capitalised while they also set up a strong defensive system to break up numerous Na Fianna attacks. The highlight for the home side was a lovely point from out on the wing by Daniel Devine, who was impressive on the night. Na Fianna lost Daniel Queeney after five minutes through injury but team captain Conor Downey led by example as he drove at Skryne at every opportunity.


    The two first half goals had a dominant Skryne side well on the way at half time with a 2-03 to 0-4 lead.


    Na Fianna battled in earnest in the second half but could make little inroads into a strong defence. A point from Conor Downey and a goal and a point from Ethan Devine were all the home side could muster as Skryne finished convincing winners.


    Na Fianna had good displays from Daniel Devine, Conor Downey, Ethan Devine and Anthony Neary.


    Na Fianna:

    Shane Geraghty, John Baldwin, Evan Mullally, Sean Rafferty, Christy Cosgrave, Anthony Neary, Daniel Devine (0-1), Owen McDonnell, Brian Queeney, Michael Collins, Ethan Devine (1-01, 1f), Conor Downey (0-4, 3f), Sean Martin, Daniel Queeney, Damien Downey.
