Club Notes 24th May 2009

November 8, 2018

  Our Seniors lost to Castlerea by the narrowest of margins on Sunday. Not for the first time this year Elphin started very slowly and Castlerea raced into a 4 point lead. This soon increased to a 1-05 after 15minutes and it was looking bleak for Elphin. However they were thrown a lifeline when Frankie Cregg was fouled twice before being awarded a penalty. This was duly converted by John Collins and further points saw the half time score a more manageable 1-6 to 1-03.
  Points were traded again in the 2nd half , but again Castlerea stretched their lead, however Elphin found the back of the net again to reduce the margin. For the last 10 minutes Elphin chipped away at Castlerea`s 5 point lead but ran out of time losing by 1 point.

Our u12s had a good win over Kilmore on Sunday. They started well and put 3 early points on the board but Kilmore hit back with a goal. There was very little between the teams at this stage but a goal from Elphin before half time left the score 1-6 to 1-2 in favour of Elphin at the break. The second half was low scoring with both sides missing chances but Elphin got 2 late goals to win on a scoreline of 3-7 to 1-5.
