We recorded our third victory in the Masonite Division 1 league as we travelled to Aughnasheelin’s fine new facilities on Saturday night last. In a game that was very close throughout, the home side missed a late chance to draw the game as we held out for a single point victory on a final scoreline of 0-10 to 0-9.
The team and scorers were: Gerry Gearty, Damian Mc Guinness, Morgan Shanley, Seamus Mallon, Jason Conroy, John Mc Guinness, Conor Mc Cauley, Michael Duignan, Colm Farrell, MJ Winters, Mark Mc Closkey (0-4), Trevor Howard, Philip Howard (0-4), David O Connor (0-2) and Brian Conroy. Subs used: Sean Mc Keon, Paul Hackett, Robert Moran.
The Division 5 team travel to Fenagh on Sunday for a 2.30pm throw-in against St Caillins. Meanwhile the Minor B Championship starts on Wednesday week (July 2nd) when Dromahair travel to Dromod to play Bornacoola in a game with a 7pm throw-in.
The Division 3 team travelled to Drumshanbo on Sunday last and in a game played in dreadful weather conditions fought hard to secure a 1-6 apiece draw. The Bornacoola goal was the first score of the game and came from the boot of Aiden Reilly. With Bornacoola three points up at half time, Allen Gales improved considerably in the second half of a game where a draw was a fair result.
Team and Scorers: Feargal Mc Gill, John Shanley, Seamus Mallon, Brian Mallon, Sean Ryan, MJ Winters (0-1), Paul Hackett, Colm Farrell, Feargal Howard, Declan Shanley (0-1), Sean Mc Keon (0-1), Robert Moran (0-1), Aiden Reilly (1-1), Brian Conroy and John Bohan (0-1). Subs used: Bobby Shanley, Jonathan Duffy, Pat Farrell and John Reynolds.
The U-12’s played Augnasheelin last week in the last game of the league and were beaten in what was a very competitive game on a final score of 4-6 to 9-9. Our underage players are again embarking on a 1000th point challenge this year and we’d ask you to support them in their endeavours. All players should note that sponsorship cards need to be returned on Saturday. Also please note that next Saturday morning is the final fitting for the hoodie’s so all boys and girls are asked to ensure their attendance.
The Ladies played Annaduff at the weekend in the 9-a-side league and while they suffered defeat in that game, they have a chance for instant revenge as they meet the same opposition this Sunday in Division 2 of the Ladies League in Dromod in a game that will have a 12pm throw-in.
