Under 16’s:Our under 16’s played Cloughaneely in Falcarragh on Monday night and came away with an impressive win after a very exciting contest. Fanad entered this game looking for a win to get things back on track after a disappointing result last time out against Termon. Things didn’t start so good in this match either for the boys with Cloughaneely 8 points ahead with 25 minutes on the clock. At this point Fanad burst into life and scored two quick fire goals from John Heraghty and Alan McAteer. A further point from Niall Carr and the teams went in at half time with the deficit at a minimum. The second half was a wonderful advertisement for underage football as both teams came out and put everything they had on the line. It was real end to end stuff with goals flying in at either end. Another two goals from John Heraghty and a goal from Alan McAteer along with points from Niall Carr, Aiden Heraghty and brothers Conor and Oisin McFadden left Fanad leading by two points going into injury time. The game wasn’t over yet and Fanad had to defend for their lives as Paul O’Connor pulled off a couple of world class saves to hold on and give the Gaels the victory on a score of Gaeil Fhánada 5-7 Cloughaneely 5-5. Excellent team performance from the boys.Team and Scorers: Paul OConner, Bernard Martin, Sean Gibbons, Conor McDevitt, Oisin McFadden (0-1), Odhran Shiels, Michael Shiels, Aiden Heraghty (0-1), James Gallagher, Alan McAteer (2-1), Conor McFadden (0-1), Shane McGinley, Niall Carr (0-3), John Heraghty (3-0), Patrick Carr.

US Open 2019 HIGHLIGHTS, Rafael Nadal vs Diego Schwartzman: Nadal Storms Into Semi-finals

first_imgNadal has found a way again to take the second set 7-5. He served for the second set twice but Schwartzman managed to break him back on both occasions only to lose his serve 5-6 down to lose another set in disappointing fashion. Nadal now has one foot in the semi-final.Nadal took the first set against Schwartzman 6-4 after a seesaw battle. Nadal started like an express getting a double break and going 4-0 up in the quarter-final. Schwartzman, however, stormed right back from there and took the next four games to make it 4-4. However, Nadal fended off a couple of break points in the seventh game to go 5-4 up. With Schwartzman serving to stay in the set, he made a couple of backhand errors and now trails in the match.With Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic out of the US Open, this is Rafael Nadal’s golden chance to get his hands on a fourth title in New York. Nadal last won the US Open in 2017, where he beat South Africa’s Kevin Anderson in straight sets. Last year, Nadal had reached the semi-final but had to retire midway due to injury.Nadal’s journey to the quarter-final has been fairly simple, where he beat his opponents in straight sets twice in the first three rounds with his second round being a walkover. He was taken to four sets by Marin Cilic in the pre-quarterfinals but the Spaniard came out with flying colours, even executing a scintillating around the net shot. The match was being played at the biggest tennis court in the world, Arthur Ashe Stadium.last_img read more
