Sammon Men Turn Up Heat at the Top; Closed Down: Galways Fiachra Breathnach Is Denied Space on the Ball by Kevin McGuckin and Michael McBride of Derry


Byline: JOHN FALLON

GALWAY remained on track for a first league title since 1981 when theyoutclassed Derry at Pearse Stadium. Indeed, the final scoreline would have beenembarrassing for Paddy Croziers men were it not for the heroics of goalkeeperJohn Deighan.

The Limavady keeper, who had conceded just two goals in the league campaignprior to this game, produced a string of point-blank saves to deny a rampantGalway side.

Joe Bergin, Clancy, Michael Meehan and Gary Sice were all denied in one-on-onesituations by Deighan.

We took a bad beating out there today, said Derry manager Paddy Crozier. Theycould have got another few goals. We were opened far too easily and there is aharsh lesson to be learned from this.

The pressure yielded points for Clancy and Fiachra Breathnach before Derryenjoyed their best spell of the game towards the end of the first quarter.

With the Galway full back line on top, Derry were forced to shoot from distanceand Enda Muldoon got them off the mark after 10 minutes with a fine effort from45 metres.

Mark Lynch followed up with a similar long-range point before the Galwaydefence suffered a rare breach when Lynchs solo run ended with a shot that wasdeflected over the bar by Damian Burke. …
