- U8 Hurling Tournament
- ACHL Div 4 – Senior Hurling Update
The senior hurlers had an emphatic win in the league last Sunday at home to Loch Mor Dal gCais 2-18 to 0-4 but then suffered a heavy loss away to a good Glenarm side on Wednesday night 5-23 to 1-8.
Sean McElhatton top scored against Loch Mor with a personal tally of 1-4, closely followed by Chris Gallagher 0-6 and Alan Rainey 1-3. Liam McHugh chipped in with an excellent point from far out on the left hand side of the pitch, while Michael Rowntree 0-2, Tommy Mor Toland 0-1 and Canice Mooney 0-1 were our other scorers. Loch Mor scores all came from free. Click here for photos of the game.
On Wednesday night we travelled to Glenarm and while we were missing several players due to work commitments we tried our best but Glenarm on the night were too strong and ran out convincing winners.
- ACFL Div 2 – Senior Football Update
The senior footballers picked up successive wins in the league with a home win over Rasharkin 1-12 to 1-9 and an away victory over Sarsfields 1-13 to 0-8.
We were slow to start against Rasharkin and ourselves trailing by 1-1 to no score but we showed our resolve, didn’t panic and played our way back into the game. In a hard fought first half we trailed by three points at the break. We upped the tempo in the second half overturning the deficit and finished strongly to secure the points with a four point winning margin.
Scorers: A Slane 0-4, A McGrattan 0-3, A Rowntree 0-1, P McParland 0-2, S O’Neill 0-1, L Ives 1-0, L McGivern 0-1
Against Sarsfields we again had to come from behind as they led 0-4 to 0-1. The sides were level at 0-6 at the break but we put in another commanding second half performance to run out worthy winners 1-13 to 0-8. On the night we had nine scorers which bodes well.
Scorers: D Largey 1-2, J Lindsay 0-2, L McGivern 0-2, C Slane 0-1, A Rowntree 0-1, S O’Neill 0-2, P McParland 0-1, A Slane 0-1, S Toner 0-1
- ACFL Div 2 – Glenavy 1-11 Davitts 1-11
The senior footballers came away with a deserved point in this away encounter to Glenavy.
Glenavy took an early two point lead before Aaron Slane kicked a free to get us off the mark. Glenavy kicked a further point before Ryan Park slotted over two great efforts to bring us level. We pushed on and with points from Daniel Largey and Padraig McParland we started to take control. Both teams exchanged points with Aaron Slane kicking over a 45 to maintain our two point advantage but it was Glenavy who finished the half with a flourish as they added three points to lead at half time 0-7 to 0-6.
An Anto McGrattan point levelled the game at the start of the second half but a Glenavy goal put them in the driving seat. However, we showed our credentials and a Aaron Slane point was followed by a Daniel Largey shot to the back of the “biscuit tin” to edge us in front. From their on both teams traded point for point with Aaron Slane kicking another 45 and Padraig McParland getting his second of the game. Glenavy then responded with 2 quick points to lead by one and when Chris Gallagher kept his nerve to kick a pointed free from the right side the sides were level and with time up the referee called a halt to a very entertaining game.
