Juveniles hold on for win

Our Juvenile footballers had to hold on for dear life to come away with a victory in Hollymount last Tuesday to beat Ballinastaw Gaels by a point.

 

 

Shelmaliers who were eleven points clear at once stage were playing the better football, but Ballinastraw Gaels
(Combined team of Tara Rocks & Kilanerin) fought back hard and we were lucky to finish the game one point ahead, Final score  5-5 to 4-7.

 

The half time score was 3-3 to 1-3 , thanks to goals from Conor Tobin and Glen Murphy. After 15 minutes of second half we led by 11 points but they fought back well to level but our boys showed great heart to come back again and hold out for a narrow victory. Best for us were Craig Mc Cabe, Conor Tobin, Neil Rossitter and Niall Tobin.
