Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA notes 23rd September 2018
Our Intermediate team booked their place in a first Intermediate championship semi-final since 2005 with a dramatic 1-17 to 1-16 quarter-final replay win over Ballymote after extra time last Sunday. This was a true championship encounter with both sides enjoying spells of dominance. We fought back late on to force a draw in normal time, 1-12 to 0-15, after a promising first half saw us lead 0-8 to 0-4 at half time. The key score in extra time was Brian Coleman’s goal after excellent work from Aaron Duffy in the build-up. We led 1-16 to 1-13 at half-time in extra time and lived dangerously at times in the second period but held on to win by the narrowest of margins, with Greg Regan making a vital save late on. While this was a big win for our lads, we commiserate with Ballymote who were very gracious in defeat despite their disappointment. For our boys, they have a quick turnaround for next Sunday’s semi-final against Shamrock Gaels – that throws in at 1pm at Bunninadden. A large support would be appreciated; thanks to everyone for their support last Sunday.
The Enniscrone-Kilglass/Easkey minor team still await confirmation of their next fixture in the Minor A Championship.
Congratulations to the Enniscrone-Kilglass/Easkey U-16s who won the B Championship in style last Monday evening in Kilcoyne Park, Tubbercurry with a comprehensive 4-18 to 2-8 win over St John’s. This was a highly impressive display from the squad and completes a league and championship double, after they won the league in July. Well done to all the players and the management team on their success, and thanks once again to Tommy Battle and Bayside for their sponsorship of post-match food.
Hard luck to our U-13s who exited the Feile competition despite a battling display away to St Molaise Gaels last Tuesday. It finished 4-12 to 3-6. Thanks to the players, parents and management for their efforts.
Well done to the Western Gaels U-12 hurlers on winning the Brady Family Tournament in Easkey last Sunday.
Congrats to the Eoghan Rua U-14 footballers on their A2 Championship final win last weekend. They beat St Mary’s 3-7 to 1-9.
The Sligo Senior Football Championship final will take place in Quigabar on Sunday, October 14th.
Club lapel pins
There are a limited number of lapel pins showcasing the club crest – and importantly the correct spelling of Enniscrone as Gaeilge agus as Béarla – available at present. They are a quality item that would make a great present, and also show your support for the upcoming plebiscite on the town name. They are available from any committee member for €10.
Please note that the blotto draw will revert back to Saturday nights for the winter months from Saturday, September 29th. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.
