It took 15 minutes for Mungret St. Pauls to put up a score while 2 frees for Garryspillane saw their only points in the first half. 2 frees for Mungret St. Pauls went left of the goal but it was scores from play in the 15th and 16th minute that drew the game. A point froma free and 2 from play closed the first half with Mungret St. Pauls
with a 4 point lead over Garryspillane.
The second half was where Garryspillane fought back they secured a pointed free followed by a Mungret St. Pauls score from play only to have the turning point of the game when Garryspillane saw their chance
and saw the ball into the corner of the net to leave only a one point lead to Mungret St. Pauls, another free for Garryspillane drew the game again. Mungret St. Pauls broke through the midfields to get the ball over the bar. A well taken point for Mungret St. Pauls made them
look good but still struggling when Garryspillane narrowed the gap to a point with their first point from play. A pointed free a piece before the ball was sent dangerously infront of the Mungret St. Pauls goal from a free to be declared a square ball to Mungret St. Pauls relief. Mungret St. Pauls struck one more free over the bar before Garryspillane drawing the game with 2 more points.
Garryspillane got most of their scores from play but what saved Mungret St. Pauls were the 11 wides Garryspillane threw away (4 from frees). Mungret St. Pauls only had 6 misses – 3 from frees. There is more in this team and it will be great to see them bring it to the match against Kilmallock next week.

LADIES FOOTBALL CAKE SALE
On Saturday 9th February, our ladies football ran a very successful bake sale. The wind, rain and cold weather didn’t stop our supporters and club mates getting behind the girls. The variety of cakes, brownies, cupcakes and buns were incredible, you name it we had it.
We are so proud of all who took part and contributed to the day(bakers, facepainters, sellers, socializers, players and coaches).
Without you the bake sale would not have been possible or as successful as it was. Your contribution was noted and greatly appreciated. You did your club proud!!

All done nowso we hope Breandáns efforts are not in vain and that the children have been selling their lines and everyone is supporting them.
We’ll collect the donations at Saturday’s 11am football and Monday’s 6pm hurling. Breandán got back into his tough training as he resumed football training in the stormy weather. Well done Breandán.
