Skerries made the mid-week trip to Johnstown Park to take on Na Fianna without both teams requiring a win to keep them in the promotion hunt.

Skerries started with plenty of energy and centre forward Fionnan O’Sullivan leading the way with some well taken scores to give Skerries an early lead and to set the tone for what was an end to end game.

Na Fianna replied with a goal that the visitors gave up too easily, Luke Harrison fired Skerries back into the lead with a well taken goal, this was added to by Ciaran Foran with a well taken score after winning a ball under pressure again O’Sullivan was causing havoc in the home team’s defence and he further increased the visitors lead.

Na Fianna kept in touch with some well worked scores and giving plenty of it to the Harps rear-guard, their shooting was exceptional registering a handful of wides for the hour.

Skerries finished the half with scores from Adam Fearon and SENAD to leave it level at the break     SH 1-11 Na Fianna 2-5 The hosts started the second half with great intent, taking the lead with some good forward movement again troubling the visitors, the switching of centre back Sam Jones and full back Donal Cotter helped to limit the host’s chances. With goalkeeper Cormac Rocks kick outs giving Skerries a launching pad from which they attacked the hosts relentlessly again O’Sullivan and SENAD clipped some nice scores before half back Paul Wilde drove forward to finish a great movement to the Na Fianna net.

Two Na Fianna goals again asked questions from the visitors and in true style they responded with some excellent scores with Jones released form his man marking duties he stormed forward to burst the net quickly followed by a brace of points ably assisted by half forward Ronan Horan.

Skerries earned a penalty and sub Rob Delaney expertly finished low and hard to the corner of the net and with Finn Chatten sweeping up all the breaking ball and kicking a super point the visitors were now on their way to a well-earned win.
