Championship Returns!Best of luck to our Men's teams as they open their Championship campaigns this weekend.
Saturday 7pm - Johnstown - Matrix Bathrooms sponsored Seniors vs Western Gaels
Sunday 1pm - Kilronan Park - Seery's Bar sponsored Junior A's vs St. Ronans
Senior O'Rourke CupClann 2-09 1-10 Ros. Gaels
A tight game from start to finish, our Matrix Bathrooms sponored men started strongly, opening an early lead with a goal from Emmet Kenny on 6 minutes and kept their noses in front despite the best efforts of Roscommon Gaels. David McManus, Ciaran Lennon and Cathal Callinan added a number of points to leave the half time score at 1-06 to 0-08.
The second half was another close affair with nothing between the sides. A goal for the Gaels mid way through the second half put the minimum between the sides and looked to put Clann in bother before a breakaway goal for Ciaran Lennon after good work on the counter by Sea Henry kept Clann ahead. Donie Shine was introduced late on and contributed a point before Clann saw out the game on a score of 2-09 to 1-10. Clann will face neighbours Padraig Pearses in the O'Rourke Cup Semi-Final. However, attention now turns to this coming Saturday at 7pm as we welcome Western Gaels to Johnstown in the first round of the Championship.
Team: P. Greene, D. Duff, S. Flynn, R. Gavin, Ó. Lennon, S. Pettit, D. Connaughton, G. Pettit, D. Sumner, E. Kenny, C. Lennon, M. Scally, C. O'Brien, D. McManus, C. Callinan
