     Na Fianna Junior Footballers played their 3rd game of this year’s championship have won their opener , drew their 2nd game and had a resounding win in their 3rd gameon Thursday against Moynalvey .


    From the onset Na Fianna started strongly and opened up the Moynalvey defence with pace and speed and began to take their scores with confidence. All forwards were contributing to the general play and showing well for the ball but especially corner forward Glen McDonnell who was in sparkling form contributing 3 points from play in the first 20 minutes. Moynalvey began to come back into the game at this stage but determined & resolute defending from all 6 backs ensured no comeback was on the cards at this stage. A great team goal despatched by Ben Caldwell before half time settled the team with some excellent point scoring from Jack McNally , Dean Hendrick, Paul Kennedy & Jarlaith Ennis also.


    After the break Na Fianna midfielders Cian Slattery &  Evan Hendrick  gained a lot of possession around the middle of the pitch with the brilliant Paul Kennedy & Kean Flynn running hard on the wings .At this stage Na Fianna introduced their substitutes with Daniel Gleeson and Seanie Griffin coming on  & both settled into the game quickly . Kevin Coffey , Oisin Coffey, Cormac Redmond and Goalkeeper Connor Heffernan were introduced and all played their part in a great win in the end .
