Malin Seniors
Malin 0-11 Naimh Naille 1-10
St Nauls took the points away from Connolly Park on Sunday in a real tough, intense and good game of football. They opened the scoring with a Gavin Mulreany free before Kieran McNicolas hit an excellent point from out on the right sideline. Malin hit the front with an excellent Shaun Kelly point up the left. Mulreany then hit another from a free for the Mountcharles men. Anthony Kelly then freed for Malin and Dan McDaid was dragged back and brother Shaun then powered home another effort from up the left as Malin went two up.
They were pegged back however after a goal from Ryan Coyle that had a bit of fortune about it, the midfielder did well to get in behind but his effort to goal was deflected off a defender that gave goalkeeper Darragh McLaughlin no chance. Anthony Kelly nearly goaled for Malin right away but his effort was pushed over the bar by goalkeeper Mulreany. Kelly punched over a point soon after to after a huge ball in from Joseph Doherty. Stephen Griffin then hit a free to level the game. Paul McLaughlin and Stephen Griffin traded two high quality points – both on the run from out on the right and from distance. Joseph Doherty had the final say of the half though with a well placed free from the ground out on the left to leave the halftime score Malin 0-08 Naomh Naille 1-04.
The second half was slow to start with two chances missed at goal, Stephen Griffin flashed his shot wide for the Inver men and Dan McDaid’s effort was cleared on the line. It took until the 43rd minute in fact for the opening score, the score was a tap over free but Shaun Kelly had opened up the defence with a sublime pass which saw McNicolas bear down on goal only to be dragged down. Anthony Kelly then rolled back the years to beat his man on the bi-line and score from the narrowest of angles off the upright.
Edward Kane kept the visitors in touch with a score from the D and then Stephen Griffin did well out the right to score and the same player then levelled through a crowded middle to set up a nervy final five minutes. Joseph Doherty then hit a superb effort from distance to put Malin ahead but it was short lived as Barry Griffin stepped up with two crucial points for the visitors, first he finished off a well worked move up the right and then edged them ahead on 60 minutes hitting over from just right of centre. As Malin looked to equalise they lacked composure and the hard working sweeper Shane Coneely fed Daniel Meehan to run out two point winners. Malin have no game next week with Donegal playing Derry but they are away to Naomh Muire in two weeks time.

3 Peaks Challenge
Well done to the 60+ children and adults who took part in the first of the club orgainsed 3 Peaks Challenge up the Cruagh last Sunday. The weather held out and thanks to John McLaughlin Owen who guided the group and to Mickey McDaid for the photographs, next week it is the turn of the under 12s and 14s to tackle the second climb Slieve Sneacht on Saturday on the 26th May, the 3rd Peak is for under 16s and 18s climbing Mount Errigal on Saturday 2nd June. We would also like to see as many adults as possible take part so if you'd like to set yourself a few goals this is for you. More details will follow soon and sponsor cards will be available from each team group. This is open to everybody and weather dependent should be a great club event.

The under 14 boys were beaten by Naomh Colmcille last Tuesday, they play against Naomh Padraig at home this Friday at 6:30pm.
The under 12 girls are away to Urris on Tuesday evening at 6:30 in the Inishowen League.
The under 16 girls beat Letterkenny Gaels last week. Well done to Malin players Conor O’Neill – who scored 1-07, John McLaughlin, Darragh McGeogeghan, Ben Miller and Connor Murray on the North Donegal under 15 panel who played Fermanagh on Saturday.

The club would like to wish Daniel Green, who captained the seniors on Sunday, the best of luck back in America, it was wonderful to have him for the start of the season.
