It was all one way traffic under the lights of Fr McManus Park on Friday night as Meath’s U-20 footballers had little difficulty in maintaining their unbeaten run in the Leo Murphy Cup.
However, their progression or otherwise in the pre-championship competition is out of their hands and will depend on the outcome of the clash between Tyrone and Down. Meath beat the latter in their previous outing having opened their season with a draw against the former – who were, of course, All Ireland champions in the grade last season.
On this occasion, the home side had business pretty much taken care of at half time, with a goal from team captain Eoghan Frayne enabling them to be clear by 1-12 to 0-01 half way through.
Midfielder Conor Gray registered the second goal after the break, while Duleek/Bellewstown’s Alan Bowden chipped in with an impressive seven point haul.
Scorers: Eoghan Frayne (1-7), Alan Bowden (0-7), Conor Gray (1-0), Oisin Keogh (0-2), Liam Stafford, Aaron Murphy, Hughie Corcoran (0-1 each).
