Harlesden Harps GFC Club Notes
August 03, 2013
Harlesden Harps played Heston Gaels in their first game of the championship at Ruislip on tuesday evening.Harps started slowly and allowed Heston too much space which resulted in a few early points followed by a goal.Finally Harps got a score with some excellent movement which resulted in Liam "Hotshot" Holly sidefooting past Hestons keeper .Harps then tagged on a few points but Heston replied with their own and led by a few at the break. At the start of the second harps played with a bit of fight and were getting back into it with the help of a few points and another goal by Daniel Sommers.Harps were now going well but had a good goal disallowed for nothing .That score would have put Harps a point up and surely would have lifted the lads but from the resulting 45 heston broke up the field and got a well worked point. Heston tagged on a few great scores after that and won well by 2 05 to 1 17.Good luck to them for the rest of the season.Man of the match was Sean o Halloran who gave his all along with Aidan Lynam,up front Ben O Mahony battled well when coming on. A big thank you to all the McCarthys at Labour Force who has sponsored a new playing kit which was worn for the first time on tuesday evening,your support is greatly appreciated.
