Carrigallen Club Notes – 11/9/17

Intermediate Championship:

Our seniors had a good win over Ballinaglera in the quarter final of the intermediate championship in Aughavas last Saturday evening. We got off to a blistering start and, inspired by an outstanding Eoin Ward, we led by 2-06 to 0-04 at half time. Things got even better in the second half when a third Eoin Ward goal left us eleven points ahead. However, Ballinaglera responded immediately with a goal of their own and scored an additional three unanswered points to leave just five between the teams. The crucial moment of the game came with six minutes to go when Enda Lyons brilliantly saved a Ballinaglera penalty when all the momentum was with the North Leitrim men. Two points from Colm Kiernan and Ciaran Flynn in the last three minutes of the game put the result beyond doubt. Final score: Carrigallen 3-10 Ballinaglera 1-10. We now progress to the semi final where our opponents will be Aughnasheelin. Team & scorers: Enda Lyons, Anthony Kenny, Barry Nash, David Reilly, Darran Reilly, Barry Dolan, Barry Reilly, Eoin Ward (3-05) Gary Reilly, Ciaran Kenny, Daniel Lyons, Gerard McDermot (0-1), Marc Dolan (0-1), Ciaran Flynn (0-2) & Colm Kiernan (0-1). Subs: Thiernan O’Rourke for Marc Dolan, Matis Polis for Gerard McDermott and Andrew McManus for Ciaran Kenny.

U13 Championship:

St Josephs U13’s overcame Dromahair in the semi final of the 13-a-side championship on Sunday in Carrick-on-Shannon after a closely fought encounter and have now qualified for the final where our opponents will be Fenagh. A strong first half performance laid the foundations for the win on a scoreline of St Josephs 1-13 Dromahaire 1-4. Well done to both teams for producing a good game in difficult weather conditions. Best of luck to the lads in the final.

U17 Championship:

St. Joseph’s U17’s are away to Sean O’Heslin’s on Saturday at 12 noon.
