This week’s lotto winning numbers were 3, 11, 21 & 22 which resulted in no jackpot winner for this week. We had five match 3’s :- Marian Creaven Thumnahulla, Aidan Callanan Parke, J.J Shiel Cuttenty, John Concannon Parke and Louise Faherty Grange. Niall Canavan won the promoters prize and next weeks draw is in the Clubhouse next Monday night at 9.00pm for a  4300 jackpot.
At Cregg on Sunday we lost our last home game of the Senior Football League to Corofin by two points 1-6 to 1-8. This sees us on six points from eight league games having amazed two wins and two draws. We now need to win our final game which is away to An Cheathru Rua in order to have a chance of surviving in Division 1A of the Senior Football League. In the Corofin game on Sunday we were slow to open our account with PJ Fahy potting our first point after seventeen first half minutes at which stage the winners lead by a single score but we continued the good work when Damien Burke made it all square a minute later. Corofin had the next four points before Anthony Pender goaled a minute before the break to leave us trailing by a point at the break 1-2 to 0-6.
The winners opened the second half scoring a goal after ten minutes but Mathias Coleman reduced the lead three minutes later with a point leaving us three behind at the mid way stage of the second period. Damien Burke pointed after twenty minutes with Frankie Burke having our last two points of the game to leave us trailing by two points at the finish. It was a game that saw us very wayward in our shooting in front of goal having shot five wides in the first ten minutes of the game and although we finished strong towards the end of the game again our poor finishing left a lot to be desired
The team was: Padraic Mannion, Benny Newell, Adrian Fitzpatrick, Martin O’Neill, Mathias Coleman, Shane Collier, Fergal O’Doherty, Niall Coleman, Anthony Pender, Michael Melia, P, J.Fahy, Brian Qualter, Damien Burke, Wesley Fallon, and Frankie Burke. Subs Daniel Dennegan and Joseph Farragher.
