Senior Championship

 

It was another impressive victory on Saturday evening in Cloone for the senior lads, this time they were up against an equally impressive Mohill team where a win for either team would cement their place at the top of group one. The lads were in flying form and certainly started the much brighter of the two and within the first quarter were leading by six points with the score 0:8 to 0:2 with some magnificent scores. Mohill improved over the next 10 minutes and added four of their own points before Ballinamore were to get their next and despite our early dominance we only wet in leading by two points with the halftime score 0:9 to 0:7. Within a minute of the restart Niall scored another great point before Mohill again pulled one back, it was not until the 43rd Minute that the game swung back to Ballinamore with Niall grabbing a very important goal after a Wayne free came back of the upright. Mohill were not to be denied and added a couple of impressive points of their own before Ballinamore scored three massive points each better than the last, first up was Wayne with a free, followed by Niall again after great run by Brian Leydon and again Niall with another impressive score, this left the score at 1:13 to 10 going into the last 5 minutes. Mohill grabbed another two points before Paddy grabbed the final point of the game to leave the final score Ballinamore 1:14 Mohill 0:12

 

Well done to all the lads hey put in a great performance all over the pitch

 

Oughteragh Gaels

Oughteragh Ladies reach the Championship Final!

Congratulations to our ladies team who will contest this year’s Intermediate Championship Final against Mohill on September 10th following a brilliant win over St Frances’ in Bornacoola.

September will be a big month for the club with two finals on the way and anyone who is available to come out and support on either date, please do so.

Team: Lisa Maguire, Leanne McGrath, Ciara O’Dowd, Abbi Sweeney, Aoibheann Flynn, Kirby Gilgunn, Katie Duignan, Eilish O’Dowd, Roisin McHugh (0-7), Emma McGovern (1-1), Laura O’Dowd (1-2), Maeve Hamill, Siobhan Earley (1-1), Mary McNulty, Ciara McGoldrick.

Connacht Gold Senior Championship

 

It was another good performance by the seniors in Cloone this time against Aughawillian our old adversaries. Having won our first two championship games, it was certainly another important match especially when it’s our long-term adversaries and neighbours, victory would ensure our quarterfinal berth and banish memories of the league defeat. The lads started well playing some excellent football with no shortage of skill and power. The high tempo start from the lads was to much for Aughawillan and in the space of the opening 10 minutes we were leading by a score of 1:4 to no score, with Niall McGovern scoring a cracking goal, Ballinamore continued to push forward winning the majority of knockdowns and 50/50 balls with their controlled football leading to another excellent goal this time for Paddy. The good football was to continue and the lads went in at half time leading by 2:08 to 0:3. The second half started differently with a renewed Aughawillan taking to the field and showing why they were county champions , they went on to kick 5 unanswered scores at the start and were certainly much improved on the first half. Keelan McHugh grabbed an important third goal for Ballinamore and the game ended with a great victory by a score of 3:11 to 0:13

Pyramid Bookmakers Junior A Club Championship

 Our Junior A lads also put in a great performance at the weekend beating Kiltubrid by a score of 2:17 to 3:08

Ballinamore Festival

Well done to Aobhinne Boyle and the u14 Girls Leitrim Team who officially opened this year Family festival on Sunday gone. The rain stayed away and they helped launch this years packed calendar which includes a number of GAA related events such as the over 40’s football which should give the youngsters a glimpse of some of the stars of the past and the Childrens Blitz which is on this Thursday at 1600. One of the new events this year was Ballinamore Ninja style which was on Monday night and had teams from all the local GAA clubs taking part in a very fun and exciting event- there will be more heats over the coming week and this mini county championship is not to be missed. Special thanks must be given to the festival committee and all the organisers who give up their time to organise this brilliant week of entertainment and we would like to thank them all

 

 

 

Well Done

Connacht Gold Senior Championship

 

It was another good performance by the seniors in Cloone this time against Gortletteragh. Having won our first championship game last week, it was certainly another important match and one we needed to win with the games coming thick and fast. The lads started well with Niall McGovern ending the game with an impressive 2:07, and the lads went in at half time leading by 2:10 to 0:4, the good form continued in the second half with the final score 3:20 to 0:9. It was a good performance all round and good preparation for this Fridays game against Aughawillian. The Willies will certainly offer a sterner test, and after our loss in the league to them it will certainly be one the lads are up for, a great game instore and one not to be missed. Hopefully as many of you as possible will make their way to Cloone to cheer the lads to victory.
Next up for the lads is Aughawillian at 20:30 on Friday in Cloone

 

Pyramid Bookmakers Junior B Club Championship

 

Our Junior B lads started their championship campaign on Saturday against Bornacoola and despite a good performance they lost by a point. The final score was 1:13 to 1:12, hopefully the lads will get the win they deserve in their next outing

 

Well Done

 

Well done to our u16 boys who played in the Bryan Cullen invitational tournament on Sunday. The lads played very well and only lost out in the Semi finals to Corofin having beaten Clane from Kildare and Dr. Crokes of Kerry in the group stages. The lads certainly showed that there is no shortage of skill or guile in Leitrim football at an underage level. Many thanks to Bryan Cullen and Skerries GAA for hosting this very well ran and fantastic event, special thanks also to the players, mentors, management and parents for giving up their time to make it all happen

 

U13 Boys

SOH U13 Boys suffered their first championship loss away to Leitrim Gaels last week. In a dogged affair the SOH lads finished on the wrong side of a 4:10 to 1:14 score line. Great credit to both sides in a hard fought encounter with both sets of players giving their all. Next game at home to Gortletteragh on Thursday at 7pm. Squad:
Adam Kaminski , Akin Talabi , Micheal O’Brien, Dara Gavin , Killian Maguire, Colm Gartland Tommy Smith, Cian McGovern, Sam Cullen, Liam Reynolds, Dylan Reynolds, Paul Moran, Thomas Brady, Eoin Connaughton, Oisin McCarty, Cathal McCarty, Gavin D’Arcy, Naoise McManus, Paul Honeyman, Brian Sweeney.
