Sweet revenge for Greystones

ÉIRE ÓG, Greystones stepped up their game in the second half of this Leinster IFC final and ran out winners by two points over Confey of Kildare at Aughrim yesterday.

County star Darren Hayden at centre-forward was at the heart of Éire Óg’s push for victory as they wiped out a 0-2 to 0-4 deficit at half time, and he scored the two winning points with five minutes to go.

Corner-forward Daniel Webb was also on target with his free-taking on the change over and his three points from placed balls were invaluable.

Confey were reduced to 14 men with 12 minutes left after wing-forward Joe Keogh, who was one of their stars, was dismissed on a red card. And they will also lament their shooting with several forwards ballooning wides from good positions in both halves.

However this win was a case of sweet revenge for Éire Óg, Greystones as they had been beaten by Confey in the Leinster JFC back in 2004.

Scorers for Éire Óg Greystones: D Webb, D Hayden 0-3 each, B Cuddihy, G Fuisciardi 0-1 each.

Scorers for Confey: J Gately 0-3, J Keogh, P Smith, T McCann 0-1 each.
