Juvenile Club News:
The championship has continued over the month of July where we have played two matches.
On 5th of July we played Southside Gaels (St Patrick’s, Claughuan and Old Christians) in Monaleen. The game was a very high scoring one with the lead changing hands a number of times. Monaleen were a point down at half time but came out after half time and took a 2 point lead mid-way through the second half. Two late goals by Southside Gaels switched the game back in their favour and although we got a goal back, we had too much to do at that stage and Southside Gaels ran out four point winners on a score line of 4-13 to 3-12.
On the 20th of July we travelled to Knocklong to play Garryspillane. We were very short on numbers with lots away on holidays. It was a game of two halves. Garryspillane were very accurate with their frees in the first half and had a 4 point lead at half time. Things didn’t look good when Garryspillane scored a goal immediately after half time. It was to be one of their last scores however as the Monaleen come back started from there. We scored 3 goals and 2 points without reply and held on to take a 2-point win. This was a huge win for us.
We have two more matches to play. Our next match is Ahane in Monaleen on 3rd of August. If we win we will be a county semi final.
