Senior Football

Our senior footballers got off to a winning start with a 2-11 to 1-6 win over Gaultier Saturday night in Kill. In near darkness, our lads closed out the game comfortably, however they didn’t have it their own way throughout the game. After a sluggish start, Gaultier led 0-04 to no score. An all Curry goal, engineered by Stevie and finished by Jason, brought us to within a point. Further points from Jason Gleeson and Jason Curry settled us down as we went in at the break ahead. Disaster struck after the break as Gaultier were awarded a penalty when JJ Hutchinson was hauled down in the box. The same man stepped up to put Gaultier back in front by a single point. A darting run down the line by Billy Power followed by a sublime ping set Stevie Curry up for a goal on his first championship start. Gaultier couldn’t contain Stevie over the next 5 minutes as he went on to kick another 2 points. From here we assumed control, with Jason Gleeson kicking another point. Jason Curry tagged on scores from play and frees in difficult conditions. Conor Murray added 2 late points to give seal the victory.

Team: Paudie Hunt, Jamie Kirwan, Ronan Cahill, Conor Walsh, Declan Hennebry, Michael Curry, Ronan Crotty, Robbie Flynn, Jason Gleeson, Billy Power, Jason Curry, Daniel Crotty, Stevie Curry, Conor Murray, Paul Drohan. Subs used; John Kirwan, Liam Connolly, Ciaran Fogarty

Local Derby

Next up for the seniors is a clash with local rivals with Kilrossanty. The game is fixed for 2.30 in Fraher Field next Sunday. The venue may change so keep an eye out on social media and for those not on social media, ask around the village. This is a massive game for the lads even though it is early in the season. Let’s get behind this young team as they try to get a win over Kilrossanty, who have had the upper hand in recent years.

Junior Football

Our juniors were beaten 4-5 to 0-8 by a strong Nire side last Friday in Ballymac. The lads’ next game is at home against Brickey Rangers.

Under-16

Our under-16s had a convincing 5-11 to 3-7 over Ballyduff Upper on Wednesday night. That’s a second big win of the campaign for the lads.

Under-14

Our under-14’s were convincingly beaten by a very strong Gaultier side on Saturday.
