Greenfield Senior Football Championship
Clontibret 0-13, Ballybay 0-12. We advanced to the semi-final of the senior championship with a hard fought win over Ballybay in Blayney on Saturday afternoon last. Starting without Conor Boyle and losing Vinny Corey to an early injury unsettled the first half but the lads dug deep in the second half to carve out a precious victory. We now await the winners of Truagh/Latton for a semi-final clash the first weekend in October. There was a huge turnout at the SFC double header at O’Neill Park on Sunday when Blayney lost to Latton followed by Scotstown and Truagh in a thriller which was only decided on penalties. Well done to all who did such trojan work to cater seamlessly for the large crowd with many favourable comments from patrons on the immaculate condition of the pitch and grounds.
