Carrigallen GAA Club Notes 29/08/2018

U17’s – Hard luck to St. Joseph’s U17’s who were defeated by an outstanding St. Mary’s team in the championship semi final on Sunday evening in Carrick. Playing with wind advantage in the first half, our lads competed admirably against a much physically stronger St. Mary’s outfit, however, in the second half our opponents turned the screw and ran out comprehensive winners.
U13’s –  St Joseph’s U13s played Dromahaire away on Thursday evening. In what was a well contested game between two evenly matched teams St Joseph’s playing with wind advantage led at halftime on a scoreline of St Joseph’s 1-11 Dromahaire 2-2. Going into the final stretch our lads were leading by 4 points but the concession of two goals in quick succession changed the complexion of the game and Dromahaire ran out winners on a final scoreline of St Joseph’s 2-13 Dromahaire 6-3. Hard luck lads but hopefully some lessons learned. The next game is against Manorhamilton on Monday with the winners of the game to play Dromahaire in the shield final.

U9’s – St. Joseph’s U9’s made the short journey to Drumreilly last Saturday morning to take on Garadice Gaels in an U9 blitz. Well done to all players who participated and to our hosts for organising
Go Games – We would like wish Aoibhin Sheridan the best of luck on Sunday she is representing Carrigallen  NS  and leitrim in the go games at the All Ireland final on Sunday. Well  done Aoibhin…
U13’s – St Joseph’s U13s played St Mary’s in the latest round of the championship in Carrigallen on Thursday evening. In a closely contested first half St Joseph’s acquitted themselves well and were a bit unlucky to be trailing at half time on a scoreline of St Joseph’s 0-06 St Mary’s 2-06. The second half saw St Mary’s pull away to record a comfortable win on a final  scoreline of St Joseph’s 1-09 St Mary’s 6-10. While it was disappointing to lose another game it was encouraging to see the St Joseph’s lads kept trying their best to the end and hopefully they will put in positive performances in the remaining games.
U17’s – Well done to St. Joseph’s U17’s who recorded a good win over Leitrim Gaels in their final group stage game played in Aughavas last Monday evening. This leaves us with a good chance of reaching the semi final stage depending on other results this week. Best wishes to St. Joseph’s player Jordan Cowell who sustained a bad ankle injury during the game.
U9’s – Well done to the U9’s who hosted Fenagh last Saturday in Carrigallen and played so well. We play Garadice Gaels in our next blitz this Saturday in Drumreilly at 10am.
Well done to our intermediate Team on their win over Eslin on Sunday. And good luck to our Juniors on Saturday in the quarter final in Carrick against Melvin Gaels.
