Round-up (August 11-12)

August 13th, 2012

Silver Hill Foods

Castleblayney retained the Silver Hill Foods Senior Hurling Championship title with a hard-earned win over Inniskeen in Sunday’s final (see report).

 

Donaghmoyne are Monaghan Foxhound Travel Senior Football Champions for the tenth year in a row after they cruised to victory against Truagh in the final on Saturday evening.

Credit-Union-Websize

Ballybay remain four points clear at the top of the Drumlin Group of Credit Unions Senior Football League after they edged a one-point win away to Monaghan Harps on Sunday. The league leaders were six points clear at half-time thanks to goals by Shane McGuinness and Paul Finlay, but they needed a late flourish to take the two points and stay well ahead of Clontibret, who led from start to finish in a four-point defeat of Latton. Magheracloone are up to third after they got the better of Castleblayney, while Scotstown eased past Truagh, with Kieran Hughes hitting 1-4 to inspire their victory over their neighbours. Currin looked set to take full points from Carrickmacross when they led by three with time almost up, but a last-gasp goal by Stephen Gollogly gave Carrick a share of the spoils.

Monaghan Electrical

Doohamlet continued their remarkable run in the Monaghan Electrical Intermediate Football League and opened up a six-point gap at the top in the process when they edged out Tyholland on Sunday. Donaghmoyne’s double-scores win at home to Seán McDermotts moved them up to second, leap-frogging Rockcorry, whose ten-match unbeaten run came to an end with a six-point loss to Corduff.

Eurotech

Emyvale produced a powerful performance to crush Killeevan and move two points ahead at the top of the Eurotech Junior Football League on Sunday, while their nearest challengers Drumhowan and Clones played out a draw. Killanny remain in fourth after they squeezed past Éire Óg on the day that the Kieran twins made their debuts for the south-Monaghan club.

 

Meanwhile, Monaghan’s ladies footballers have been drawn to play Mayo in the TG4 All-Ireland SFC quarter-finals. The game will take place on Saturday, August 25 at a time and venue yet to be announced.
