Hard luck to our Minor footballers who put in a strong performance against St Martins in the Premier football semi final in Tagoat on Saturday morning. The opposition had the benefit of a strong breeze in the opening half and went into the interval 4 points up 0-6 to 0-2 with our 2 points coming from placed balls by Michael Carroll.
In the second half despite an early 1-1 from St Martins the Glynn Barntown lads worked extremely hard and a heavy tackle on Dylan Lyne awarded us a penalty which was neatly netted by Michael Carroll along with a pointed free. Two excellent points from Cormac Rowe and one from Dylan Lyne put just a point between the teams and Glynn Barntown were just gaining momentum when the Martin’s raised the green flag again and pointed one more. A point from Bill Joyce and a Liam Berry point in extra time brought the deficit to three before time ran out. Final score 2-8 to 1-8.
The journey ended for our Junior hurlers at semi final stage today in Bellefield as Cloughbawn come out on top. Final score 1-11 to 0-10.
