CROOM GAA CLUB NOTES
Last Saturday we played Granagh/Ballingarry in Rd 1 of the championship at a sun drenched Croagh. This was a very close game with the teams only separated by 4 points at most the whole way through. Both teams worked really hard and at half time we were down by one point. In the second half a goal each from James Malone and Conor Laffan put us in a good position, but Granagh/Ballingarry were winning primary possession from puck outs thus giving them a good platform to attack or draw fouls so it was very close right to the end. There was a good spread of scores from our forwards with Ethan O’Sullivan Barry finishing with 9 points including a great free taking display. The final whistle was blown with Croom in possession in the middle of the field with both teams chasing each other down. The game ended in a draw 2.16 : 1.19. An entertaining game for those that managed to get tickets and the game was also live streamed on Granagh/Ballingarry’s Facebook page. As it finished in a draw, there was a coin toss to see who plays Hospital/Herbertstown and we face them this Sunday evening at 7pm in Kilmallock.
