U17: The U17 team played Rock Sarsfield’s in the Quarter Final of the Championship on Monday evening last when they had a convincing victory winning by 6-11 to 3-10. The foundations for this victory were an excellent first half performance where the lads had ran into a handsome lead. In the second half a number of substitutions were made, and the amalgamated outfit came more into the game, but our boys held firm and ran out winners. Next game is penciled for this Friday night away to Emyvale at 7.30pm and best wishes is extended to team and management. One point of note is that Conal Savage made comeback on Monday night after a serious injury which occurred earlier in the year, and it was great to see conal back in the blue colours.
U15: The U15 A team were beat by Inniskeen in the Semi Final of the Division 2 Championship on Saturday last losing by 4-12 to 2-6. Although the boys tried hard Inniskeen held the upper hand mostly through the game. In the first half Aughnamullen playing with the elements ran into an early 3-point lead only for Inniskeen to score a fortunate goal to lead by 2 however Aughnamullen came back with a goal of their own courtesy of Patrick Lambe however Inniskeen finished strong and led by 4 at the break 1-7 to 1-3. With the elements in their favour Inniskeen scored 2 quick goals to go further in front and at the water break led well. In the final quarter Aughnamullen never give up and scored a brilliant goal by Paraic Mc Entee to reduce the arrears but Innniskeen held out and ran out winners in the end. This ends the football for our A team this year, but the lads had a great year winning the Division 3 League and reaching the semifinal of the Division 2 Championship. Many thanks to all the players and management of Derek O Neill, Michael Murtagh, Dale & Joel Wilson and First Aid person Linda Garrivan and Covid Officer Janet Bannigan.
