Seniors: The Senior team played Emyvale in the semifinal of the championship last Sunday and by god what a game this was. The game had everything and had everyone on their toes where the sides were level on a number of occasions and in the end, it probably felt a draw was a fair result.
In the first half Emyvale were off the mark first but Aughnamullen came back and at the first water break the sides were level at 0-4 points each. In the second quarter scores were scored equally and at half time it was 0-6 point a piece.
In the second half Aughnamullen went into a 4-point lead but credit to Emyvale they came back again and entering the final quarter Aughnamullen held a 2-point led 0-11 to 0-9. In the final quarter however Emyvale returned to parity entering injury time when a point by Aughnamullen left them 1 up but back came Emyvale to force extra time 0-14 to 0-14.
In extra time Emyvale went into the lead courtesy of a long range free and with time almost up Aughnamullen gathered possession in their own half back line and worked the ball patiently through a number of phases to eventually get a shot on goal to equalise to the relief of all concerned to set up a replay which is this Saturday night in Inniskeen at 7pm. On behalf of the club best wishes is extended to team and management
