FEDAMORE GAA CLUB NOTES
We played Oola in the first round of the junior championship on Tuesday night.
A lively first half with good football played by both teams, a John Griffin goal had us in front at half time 1:07 – 0:07.
Oola started the 2nd half well and took their chances with a close range goal and a penalty. However our boys never gave up and battled to the end with keeper Tom Myles pulling off some great saves. Goals from Rory Conaghan and Darragh O Keeffe left us all square when referee John Scully blew the final whistle. Final score Oola 2:12 – 3:09 Fedamore.
Team from Tom Myles, Hugh O Donnell, Padraig Kelleher, Eoin Enright, Richard Bateman, Conor O Keeffe, John Bourke, Paul Treacy, Darragh O Keeffe, Rory Conaghan, Craig McNamara, Colin Haigney, John Griffin, Seaghan Gleeson, Eoghan Hurley, Damian Keehan, Eoghan McCormack, Aodhan Hurley.
The junior footballers played the second round of their football championship on Sunday night with Knockane the opponents behind closed doors in Fedamore.
With our Treasurer starting corner forward and our PRO starting full forward both social media updates and our weekly lotto draw were on hold for a few hours as on field matters took precedence.
Knockane, beaten county finalists last year started brightly playing some very attractive football. A fortunate goal for the men in green and white and scores from Craig McNamara ensured we were two points up at half time.
A fast paced 2nd half ensured that both teams used their bench effectively. A deft Hugh O Donnell point kept the scoreboard ticking over for us. We had a two point lead heading towards stoppage time but credit to Knockane for drawing level with some well taken scores. Wides followed for both teams and it took a last minute point from Darragh O Keeffe to leave us in a winning position after referee Mark Murphy’s final whistle. Final score Fedamore 1:09 – 0:11 Knockane.
Team from Tom Myles, John Bourke, Eoin Enright, Greg Power, Tom Keogh, Conor O Keeffe, Colin Haigney, Paul Treacy, Darragh O Keeffe, Craig McNamara, Seaghan Gleeson, Rory Conaghan, Eoghan Hurley, Padraig Kelleher, Hugh O Donnell, Eoin McCormack, Tom Shinney, Mike Shinney, John Griffin, Dinny Cronin, Joe Powell, Damien Keehan.
