Senior Football:
Oola played Monaleen in the fourth round of the Senior Football Championship on Friday 26th August.
Oola went in at half time 2 points down, Oola 0-4 Monaleen 0-6. The second half saw Monaleen gain a 4 point cushion mid way though the half, however Oola fought back, and played well to leave just 1 point between the teams with a few minutes to play. Unfortunately Monaleen won a dubious side-line ball which resulted in a Monaleen point. The match finished Oola 0-11 Monaleen 0-13.
