The Shels Intermediate footballers eventually overcame Craanford by 2-10 to 1-9 in the quarter final of the Intermediate football championship played in Bellefield on Saturday last. The first half was a tame affair with both sides guilty of some poor shooting and poor passing, with the Shels trailing by 0-5 to 0-4 at half time.   It was a much improved performance by the Shelmaliers in the second half and with scores coming thick and fast, they put the match beyond doubt.  The Juvenile footballers qualified for the County final following a 4-11 to 1-5 victory over Kilmore in the semi final played in Blackwater on Saturday last. The Shelmalier boys were always in command and lead from start to finish and had a 2-5 to 1-4  lead at half time. The Shelmaliers completely dominated the second half with  scorer Sean Walsh adding a further 2-2 to his tally for the day. There was no winner of the clubs lotto last week with All Ireland hero Kate Kelly among the lucky winners of match three. The other winners were Charlie Gaule, Mr. P. O Gorman and Michael Gately and each received 46. This week s jackpot is 10,400, so get your ticket early.
All roads lead to Wexford Park on Saturday next for the eagerly awaited rematch between the Shelmaliers and St. Martins in the quarter final of the Senior hurling championship.

The under 12 footballers play the Starlights of Enniscorthy in the County final also on Saturday in Piercestown starting at 11am and this will be followed by the County semi final of the Juvenile hurling championship when the Shelmaliers take on local rivals St. Annes. We wish all these teams the best of luck and  your support would be appreciated.
