ACFL Division 1:
Athlone 1-9 Tang 0-20

Our seniors suffered their third defeat of this year’s league campaign when they were beaten by an in-form Tang side in this round four fixture played in Tang in perfect conditions on Sunday morning..  Athlone got off to a dream start with a Josh Beaumont goal straight from the throw-in, but the home side settled and struck some fine scores to lead by 0-7 to 1-2 after 15 minutes, with Athlone’s points coming from two superbly-struck placed balls from Kieran Colclough.  The visitors were then dealt a blow when Diarmuid Martin was sent off after receiving a yellow and black card in quick succession, but they restricted Tang to just two points in the second quarter and another Kieran Colclough free left three points between the sides at the break, 0-9 to 1-3 in Tang’s favour.

Despite their numerical disadvantage, Athlone more than held their own in the opening stages of the second period, and two excellent scores each from Mark Egan and Kieran Colclough meant that they trailed by just two, 0-12 to 1-7, at the midway point of the half.  However, just as had happened at the same stage of the opening period, Athlone’s numbers were reduced even further when James Finlass was dismissed for a second yellow card.  With a two-man disadvantage, Athlone were unable to contain the home side’s attack and Tang added several late scores to run out comfortable winners on a scoreline of 0-20 to 1-9.


Westmeath Senior Footballers:
Congratulations to Noel Mulligan and the Westmeath Senior Football team who gained promotion from Division 3 to Division 2 of the Allianz League with a hard-fought draw against Louth in Drogheda on Saturday.  Best of luck to Noel and the lads in the Division 3 Final versus Laois in Croke Park next Saturday afternoon, April 6th (throw-in at 4.45pm).

Ladies GAA

Congratulations to Athlone's Aine Ditullio and Grace McGlynn who both togged out for the u14 Westmeath side versus Wexford last week, they are now in the Leinster B Final in two weeks and the club wishes them the best of luck.

 

Best wishes to Leah Nugent who togged out for Westmeath U16s but unfortunately due to injury was not able to take the field. We wish Leah a speedy recovery.

U14 League – Division 1

Athlone: 5-15   St Loman’s: 1-00

Well done to our U14 side on their second outing in the U14 Westmeath League. A fantastic display from the throw-in set the tone for the evening. Played on the all-weather pitch in St Lomans, Athlone settled well and had 1-5 on the board after 14 minutes, Lomans hit back with a goal but this would prove to be their only score of the game with a fantastic performance from all our defensive lines. Playing with a strong breeze in the first half Athlone went in leading 3-11 to 1-0 at half time. Against the elements in the second half, conditions proved more difficult but a goal inside the first 10 minutes put the lads on course for a superb victory. All 19 players made a great impact on the game and contributed to a very worthy victory. Up next are Coralstown/Kinnegad on Thursday 4th April at 6.30pm in Pairc Chiarain. The squad and management would also like to wish team member Kyle Greene a speedy recovery following surgery after breaking a finger in a recent schools basketball game.

ACFL:
Our senior men's Division 1 match away to neighbours Garrycastle was called off on Sunday morning, when Garrycastle's pitch was deemed unplayable after the heavy overnight rain.  It wasn't possible to transfer the game to Páirc Chiaráin as all pitches were in use for underage training so it will be rescheduled for a later date.  On Saturday afternoon, our Division 3 team took on St Malachys in Castletown-Geoghegan and the depleted squad put in another good performance against the hosts' first team, before going down on a scoreline of 1-16 to 1-10.  The next round of men's league fixtures is scheduled for the weekend of March 22nd-24th, when we are scheduled to play Coralstown-Kinnegad at home in Division 1 and Moate All-Whites at home in Division 3, with the start times and dates to be confirmed in due course.
