St Gabriels 5-23 Sean Treacys 0-10   08/07/2018

St Gabriels powered through to win this afternoons SHL clash with championship rivals Sean Treacys at Wormwood Scrubs. St Gabriels opened sharply and got the scoreboard ticking over with early scores from Brian Hickey (2), Stephen Lohan (1), a David Nolan free and three from the lively Shane Lawless. On a scorching day with temperatures north of 30 degrees and a baked hard surface, it was Lawless who raised the first green flag, turning sharply to dispatch the ball to the back of the net after good approach play by Hickey and Lohan. As the pace slowed entering the second quarter, Sean Treacys got a foothold in the game with a few good scores from play. James Barrett brought off a fine save from close range and St. Gabriels led at the break by 1-13 to 0-8.

St Gabriels started the second half with a step up in tempo and early points from Hickey and Graham Maher soon re-established their superiority. The St Gabriels defence having taken a grip on proceedings were well on top with Conor Helebert turning in a strong performance at centre back, ably assisted by Lee Murphy and Dave O Gorman. With Cormac Thornton commanding the square, Sean Treacys found it difficult to get sufficient possession to threaten a comeback. There were some fine passages of play too with Graham Maher and Hickey on song in midfield and with a hard working Oisin Royston at centre forward, it wasn’t long until the goals arrived with Ultan Coonan (1-0), Kieran Fogarty (1-2) and Stephen Lohan (1-1) getting in on the act before Lawless rounded off his contribution with his second goal of the game and a personal tally of 2-10. Andrew Curtin got a late point to round off the scoring on a final score of 5-23 to 0-10.
