In the end it was all smiles in the winter sunshine as Malachians beat Immaculata 2-1 at the Stadium of Sand. Malachians continued their recent good form with another victory after last week’s draw. The visitors took the lead in the first half after an unfortunate mistake by Mals normally reliable defender Dee Hughes. However two second half goals, the first from Terry McDonald and the winner delightfully stroked home by Pearse McAuley gave Mals a deserved victory. Eddie Begley was the manager’s man of the match afterwards. The match was well refereed by Gary Thompson, seen here with Mals skipper James Begley and the Mac’s captain Sean McGovern. The seconds were beaten 4-1 away to Rosario. Up the Mals !
