Right, I need to pull the shutters down on this particular poll a bit quicker than usual, as I’ve another time-dependent one that needs to go up. The result is, however, clearcut so there’s no need to wait any longer on it.
Yesterday, we were kept scoreless in the second half for over twenty frustrating minutes. During that time we missed a few decent scoring chances, hit a few bad wides from low percentage efforts and passed up on more than one decent enough shooting opportunity. It looked then like we wouldn’t score again before full-time.
It was, however, no surprise when the man to get us moving once more on the scoreboard was Lee Keegan. He shot from distance – in the way he’s done so often – and an enormous roar erupted around MacHale Park as the ball flew over the bar. It was a classic Lee Keegan moment.
Lee’s been such a stalwart for us over the past decade and more and yesterday, yet again, he delivered in spades. Your votes, deservedly, confirm him as our Man of the Match from yesterday’s game, which he won with 24% of the vote.
Others to feature prominently in the vote are no surprise and all were to the fore in helping to chisel out yesterday’s win – Aidan O’Shea (20%), Enda Hession (10%), Oisín Mullin and Cillian O’Connor (9%) and Eoghan McLaughlin (8%).
That’s a nice mix of youth and experience and it was that blend that got us over the line yesterday. Well done to them all and especially to Lee for another totemic display in the Green and Red. We truly will weep bitter tears when he’s gone.
