*G4M&O Night at the Races*
The Gaelic for Mothers and Others team would like to thank all who supported their night at the races on Friday night especially all those that sponsored and bought horses. The money rasied by the event will now go towards buying a new set of jerseys for the G4M&O team. The winners from the night will be contacted shortly.
The Seniors paid the price for sloppy goals once again in Sundays defeat at the hands of Naomh Brid.
It was a game of two halves for Na Galloglaigh as they were quite poor in the first half, despite having a strong breeze in their favour.
Naomh Brid looked the hungrier side and seemed to be first to every ball and dominated in midfield, but somehow the blues found themselves 0-7 to 0-5 up as the half time whistle approached. However the wheels came off in first half injury time as the home side conceded two sloppy goals in the space of as many minutes to leave the half time scoreline 2-5 to 0-7. Na Galloglaigh were a much different outfit in the second half and played much much better football. Dean Burgess nearly got them right back into the game with a great goal chance but his effort came back off the bottom of the post. Naomh Brid managed to stretch their lead to six points at a stage but had a man sent off midway through the second half. Na Galloglaigh showed tremendous spirit to fight back and bring the game level late on before a third killer goal was conceded right on the 60 minute mark. Possession was turned over outside the Naomh Brid 21 and suddenly Na Galloglaigh were caught AWOL at the back. After a great run by a Naomh Brid forward Conor McNulty was forced to concede a penalty which was scored. There was more drama in injury time as once again the same post denied Dean Burgess for another goal. Naomh Brid tacked on another point late on before Cathal Mc Gettigan and Pauric Curley scored late points for the blues. Back to the drawing board for SP now before next Sundays game away to Urris. The Reserves were also unfortunate today, losing out by a solitary point, 3-4 to 2-8. Scorers: Anthony Fisher (0-1), Paul Nash (0-1), James Whelan (0-1), Paul Grier (0-1), Kyle Black (3-0). Team: Sean Gallagher, Conor McNulty, Paddy Peoples, Brandon Toye, Enda McHugh, Gary Merritt, Dean Burgess (0-1), James Doyle, Manus Boyce, Cathal McGettigan (0-9), Pauric Curley (0-2), Jonny Logue, Kane Barrett (0-1), Christopher Barrett (0-2), Tj Evesson. Subs: Darragh Black for Doyle (45m), Paul Grier for McNulty (60, BC), Cormac Friel, Kieran Sheridan, Gavin McFadden, Paul Sweeney
The U12s traveled a short distance to play their near neighbours and local rivals Fanad gaels on Monday and came away with two good wins. The B Team now have 5 in a row after a game in which they played brilliant, and should have won by more. Great displays from Owen McElhinney and Eoin McGettigan. The A Team had a great win against a very physical Fanad team on a very small pitch. Great displays from Shane Black, Dylan Dorrian and Darragh McFadden. Next up is a home match against Termon
