Na Fianna slump

April 14, 2003
The greater accuracy of the Syddan forwards condemned Na Fianna to defeat in their first championship game of the season. Syddan 0-11 Na Fianna 0-9 Syddan put in a very strong second half to get the better of Na Fianna in this closely contested game.  Na Fianna got off to the better start and were leading 0-5 to 0-1 before Syddan scored the last three points of the half to leave the score at the break 0-5 to  0-4 in Na Fianna's favour.  Na Fianna faded around the middle of the field as the game went on and the Syddan forwards were more adept at taking their chances than were their opponents. Na Fianna had good performances from Martin Hanley, Christy and Tommy Cosgrave, Jason Henrick, and Paul Hanley. Na Fianna - Jamie Queeney, Martin Hanley, Ciaran O Rafferty, Christy Cosgrave, Fergal Foran, Tommy Cosgrave, Eamonn Regan, Jason Henrick (0 - 1), Damien Griffen, Ronan Mc Mahon (0-1), Enda Mc Closkey (0-1), Alan Clinton, David Killoran, Ollie Lewis, Paul Hanley (0-6). Subs - Brian Queeney for Alan Clinton, Shane Barrett for Brian Queeney, Davy Lyons for Ciaran O Rafferty.
