The Enniscrone-Kilglass/Easkey U-21 team suffered a devastating one-point defeat to Tourlestrane after extra time in last Saturday’s pulsating A Championship semi-final. In an absolutely absorbing contest, the sides ended level at 2-10 to 1-13 after 60 minutes, but with two minutes to play in extra time our lads held a 3-18 to 2-16 lead. However, Tourlestrane struck for two goals in the final minute to win out by a point in a remarkable finish. This was a heartbreaking end for the west Sligo boys and a cruel way to see their championship hopes end. Congratulations to Tourlestrane – we wish them every success in the final next weekend.
