Red Hughs GAA News
On a perfect evening for football the Red Hughs hosted Pettigo in the opening game of their championship. With the Reds not having a win in the league so far this season the Pettigo lads were hopeful of an upset. The home side opened the scoring in the 2nd minute with a pointed free from Damien Browne. Damien made it two a minute later before Paul Murphy pointed for the visitors. The Pettigo men equalised in the 9th minute from a free from Paul Robinson. Gary Kelly made a surging run forward to end up on the end of a great move to tap over to put the Reds a pint up again before Robinson tied it up again from a free kick. In the 15th minute Calvin Bradley fired the ball to the net finishing off a great move. Two minutes later Colm Melaugh had the ball in the net for the Reds second goal to fire the home side 2-3 to 0-3 in front. Another free from Paul Robinson in the 22nd minute was to be Pettigo’s last score of the half. Thomas Mc Menamin and Calvin Added two more for the Reds Before the break.

The minor boys were in action tonight in their first game of the division 2 championship group stage. In difficult conditions both teams were finding it difficult to keep control the ball. The Red Hughs lads started the game brightly and were 4 points to no score up after ten minutes. The Mc Cumhaills lads gradually got themselves into the game and narrowed the gap to 2 points.By the end of the first half The Reds had restored their 4 point advantage Red Hughs 0-7 Mc Cumhaills 0-3
The Reds took the game to Mc Cumhaills in the opening ten minutes of the second half but were wasteful in front of goal. Mid way through the second half Mc Cumhaills were reduced to 14 losing a player due to dissent. But as happens regularly seemed to raise their game and rallied to the end of the game. A goal line clearance from Micheal Mc Colgan proved vital at the end of the game. The Final score was Red Hughs 0-11 Mc Cumhaills
The lads now play Burt away from home next Monday evening.
