Our Phillips Medisize-sponsored senior men secured an important win against St. Molaise Gaels in round 5 of the division 1 league. The lads showed great character to dig out a victory as they found themselves two points down with five minutes remaining. Good scores from Nathan Rooney and Paul Kilcoyne put the game in the balance in injury time, before Michael Munnelly kicked the winner, curling over from the right hand side. Next up is Coolera/Strandhill in Ransboro on Sunday at 1pm.
Both of our junior teams were beaten at the weekend. On Saturday evening in atrocious conditions Cloonacool came out on top against our division 3 team on a scoreline of 0-9 to 1-12. On Sunday our third team were beaten by Ballymote in division 4C. This Friday evening our Junior ‘A’ team our back in division 3 action against St. Michael’s.
Our junior ladies team are back in action this weekend in division 4 of the league. They throw-in at 7.00pm against St. John’s in Cuilbeg on Saturday evening. Good luck to all!
Our U19 boys begin their championship on Wednesday evening, 29th June. They host Ballymote/Buninnadden at 7.30pm. Best of luck to all involved.
On Friday last both of our U13 boys teams competed in their league finals in Scarden. Our older team were beaten narrowly by St. John’s in the ‘A’ final with both teams playing out a highly entertaining game. Hard luck to those involved after a valiant effort came up just short.
The younger team had a fantastic victory over St. Patrick’s in the ‘C’ final. The boys showed excellent skill and passion to win the cup on a scoreline of 5-11 to 1-10. Congrats to all involved on a great win!
