Minor Boys' League Division 1
Athlone 3-14 Shandonagh 0-15
The minor boys got their third league win on the spin away to Shandonagh last Thursday evening.  On what was a perfect evening for football, Athlone got off the mark when Eamon Martin got the first of his three goals, but Shandonagh replied with four straight points and Athlone didn't score again until the 19th minute with a Benny Martin free. Eamon Martin got his second goal from close range soon after and Athlone finished with points from Shane Allen, Paddy McGettigan and another free, leaving it 2-4 to 0-6 at HT.

The second half saw  brilliant display of football with the sides producing 20 scores between them.  Five of Athlone's 1-10 in the second half came from the boot of Benny Martin, with the other scores coming from Allen, Enda Daly and David Cleary. Eamon Martin's hat-trick goal was a real poacher's finish and was a result of a great turn over from Mark Tallon and being set up by his brother Diarmuid.  Athlone finished the strongest but were made to earn their win by the home side. Three excellent saves from John Duddy, along with a solid display by the full back line of Joe Devins, Paddy Ryan, and the excellent James Finlass kept Athlone in the game at times.

Athlone:  John Duddy, Joseph Devins, James Finlass, Patrick Ryan, Patrick McGettigan (0-1), Shane Allen (0-3), David Cleary (0-1), Anthony Johnson, Diarmuid Martin, Niall Doolan, Benny Martin (0-7), Donagh Prendergast, Deba Okodugha, Enda Daly (0-2), Eamon Martin (3-0)  Subs:  Mark Tallon, Aaron Forde, Kevin Cleary, Conor Rushe, Rytis Liaukevicius.
