ENNISTYMON CBS’s bid for an All-Ireland double remains on track.

By John Sheridan

On a bright Saturday afternoon in the Capital, Ennistymon CBS took on St Malachys of Belfast which proved to be a one-sided game once again for the CBS.

Josh Guyler returned for suspension for the side but they were without Diarmuid Fahy who picked up an injury in the All-Ireland Football Semi-Final last Tuesday in the NUIG Connacht Air Dome.

Ennistymon’s football colours had to be sported due to fears of a colour clash with St Malachys. With the CBS lining out a strong team. Niall Mullins set the pace of the game incredibly early, after he struck the sliotar into the back of the opposition’s net in the opening 30 seconds, while Guyler hit a point over just after the opening minute mark, Mullins hit another goal for the mono inside the opening 5-minute mark while within the first 5 minutes CBS scored 2-01 to no reply from St Malachys.

With an outstanding trio of Sean Rynne, Guyler and Mullins, the gap was eleven points inside the opening twenty minutes. They were playing against a tough breeze in the first half but that they still led 2-09 0-04 at half-time.

St Malachys struck first in the second half, but it was not for long until the Mono boys got in gear again and put over five unanswered scores with Guyler putting over three of those points.

Ennistymon saw a couple of goal chances in the remaining 20 minutes of the game, but they went astray, shortly after however Macdara O’Keeffe struck the sliotar past St Malachys keeper. The CBS had 8 unanswered points once again with Guyler (4) and Rynne (3) and Keith Barry (1), with the CBS emptying their bench with 5 subs in the last 10 minutes of the game. It finished in Whitehall with the CBS winning on a score line of 3-24 to 0-07.

The CBS will be up for a tough challenge against Scoil Colm Kilcormac, on the 19th in Duggan Park Ballinasloe.

CBS’ footballers take on Heywood Community School this Saturday in the All-Ireland Final in Duggan Park, Ballinasloe with a 2pm start-time.
