Senior Men

It was a disappointing journey to Tullysaran on Saturday night for our senior men, losing out to the home side on a score-line of 0 - 16 to 1 - 8.

Tullysaran bossed the opening fifteen minutes and led 0 - 6 to no score by the time the first-half water-break came around but from the restart Matthew Girvan got the Shane’s first point of the game. The sides then swapped a point apiece with Mark McCabe on target for the Shane’s before they reduced the deficit to just two when Greg McCabe powered forward to dispatch the ball low to the Tullysaran net. Tullysaran stretched their lead to three in the thirtieth minute but Paul O’Rourke replied immediately for the Shane’s to see them trail by two at the break, 0 - 8 to 1 - 3.

Similar to the first-half, Tullysaran made the better start to the second period and scored a further five points in the opening ten minutes before Connaire Mackin got the Shane’s first score of the half with a pointed free to leave six between them. Tullysaran edged it out to seven again only for Paul O’Rourke to reply for the away team with a placed ball before the game went for a ten minute spell without either team scoring. Three scores then came in as many minutes with Tullysaran slotting over two points and Ryan McCabe replying for the Shane’s, and it was the Camlough side who got the last two points of the game courtesy of Connaire Mackin but it wasn’t enough as Tullysaran ran winners by five, 0 - 16 to 1 - 8.

Senior Ladies

Our senior ladies had no game at the weekend but they recorded a very impressive 3 - 9 to 2 - 5 win away to Clann Eireann last Monday night. Next Saturday evening sees them play their last league game of the season at home to near neighbours Carrickcruppen. 

U15 Boys

An enthralling game on Sunday morning saw our U15 boys amalgamation of Patrick Rankins defeat Pearse Ógs by a single point in the championship, 3 - 4 to 0 - 12 in Correnshigo.

The young Rankins began the game brightly and went ahead early on through an Ethan Campbell goal which was quickly followed up by a good point from Daragh McNulty. The game was then held up for a few minutes following a nasty looking knee injury suffered by Ethan Campbell which saw him carried from the field of play and everyone at the club sends their best wishes to Ethan on a speedy recovery. When the game resumed Pearse Ógs upped their performance, scoring four points in a row to get back on level terms. Caolan O’Hare pointed to put the Rankins back in front but two scores in the final minutes of the half saw the Ógs lead by one at the break, 0 - 6 to 1 - 2.

Two early second-half points gave Pearse Ógs a three point advantage but points from Daragh McNulty and Adam Canavan kept the Rankins right in the game. A pointed free put the Ógs two to the good and soon after they increased their lead to three with their tenth point of the game before a speculative effort from Aaron Waddell looked to be dropping over the bar but it drifted over the keepers head and into the net and the game was now all square. Pearse Ógs responded well and scored two points, and looked to have sealed the win but the young Rankins never gave up and they were rewarded late on when Shane McCabe pounced on a loose ball to flick it to the net and see Patrick Rankins over the line on a score-line of 3 - 4 to 0 - 12.
