Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA notes 20th August 2017
Our intermediate team secured a vital win in the Intermediate Championship last Saturday evening when they defeated St Patrick’s by two points, 0-15 to 0-13, in their final group three game. This was an impressive display for the most part, particularly in the first half where the team established a 0-11 to 0-5 half-time lead. Despite losing their way for a time in the second half, they continued to battle and secured a deserved win. Progression to the knockout stages now hinges on the outcome of the final group game between St Patrick’s and St John’s in two weeks’ time, with a St John’s win ensuring our place in the quarter-finals. The team continue training this week with an Abbott Cup fixture to look forward to on Friday week against Tourlestrane.
On Sunday morning last we had the welcome return of our Junior B team to championship action. Despite a 1-17 to 0-6 loss away to St Molaise Gaels, it was great to see several faces return to don the black and amber for the first time in a while. The squad should be further bolstered for next Sunday’s fixture away to Calry/St Joseph’s at 1pm on Sunday.
The Enniscrone-Kilglass/Easkey minor team play Eastern Harps in their second A championship game on Thursday evening at 7pm in Keash.
The Enniscrone/Kilglass-Easkey minor team were unfortunate to lose out to St Molaise Gaels in the second round of the A championship last Monday evening, 6-12 to 3-15. Having put themselves in the driving seat with five minutes to go, the visitors finished stronger to claim the spoils. The team are still in with a good chance of making the semi-final stage – that will depend on the outcome of the final round of fixtures this week.
Our U-14s suffered a first B championship loss last Friday evening when they lost out to Calry/St Joseph’s by nine points, 4-12 to 3-6 at Quigabar. After showing great spirit to claw the deficit back to a single point with five minutes to play, the visitors showed their composure late on the extend their advantage once again and win out. With two wins from three games, our lads now enter the shield competition. Fixtures remain TBC.
Our U-12 boys have a big evening ahead on Tuesday night when they play Curry in the Division Two county final in Markievicz Park at 7.30pm. The team has performed brilliantly all year and will hope to finish their campaign with some silverware. Please travel to support this great bunch of lads and shout them on!
