Saturday 29th November – NADAFL Division 1
Drumaness Mills 2nds 0 v Downpatrick FC 2nds 6
Downpatrick seconds got back to winning ways with a comprehensive victory against Drumaness Mills on Saturday. Sean McMahon was the star of the show, putting in a five star performance and bagging himself five goals for the day.
Downpatrick got off to the best possible start by scoring inside the opening twenty seconds. Downpatrick took centre and the ball was played out to Christian Holland on the left wing by Paddy Kerr, Holland played the ball forward to striker McMahon who beat his marker before scoring his first of the day from just inside the box.
This goal should have been the catalyst for Downpatrick to open the flood gates in the first half but had the opposite affect. Time and time again the players picked the wrong option or gave a poor final ball. The score remained one nil until half time.
Half Time: Drumaness Mills 2nds 0 v Downpatrick FC 2nds 1
McMahon doubled his and Downpatrick’s tally for the day five minutes into the second half with a superb finish from the edge of the box. This was after him and strike partner Kerr had played a neat one two to allow McMahon the space to get his strike away. Twenty minutes into the second half McMahon completed his hat-trick and virtually wrapped up the three points for his side. Gary Trueman playing at left back played a superb ball down the left wing to McMahon, who flicked the ball over the defenders head before hitting an unstoppable shot into the opposite corner.
Sean McMahon wasn’t satisfied with just the three goals for the game and on 75 minutes he made it four, this time he collected the ball from Neal Cunningham, beat the defender before side footing the ball past the advancing keeper. Downpatrick’s fifth goal came via the head of Adrian McCoubrey after an inch perfect cross from Neil Young.
Sean McMahon scored his fifth and Downpatrick’s sixth of the game with minutes remaining, some neat play in midfield between McCoubrey and Cunningham allowed McMahon to go one on one with the goal keeper and the Downpatrick striker made no mistake. A good solid performance after last week’s dismal display.
