St. Mary’s senior men were at home this week to Moville in the 1st Round 1st Leg of the Junior A championship. The game was played at a fast and furious pace and St. Mary’s lead by a point at half time. St. Mary’s continued to apply the pressure in the second half and were rewarded when a Seamus O’Donnell goal put them 4 points ahead with 12 minutes to go. Moville replied with 3 unanswered points to leave them 1 point behind as the game entered injury time. St. Mary’s lost possession in the dying seconds resulting in a goal for Moville which left the final score St. Mary’s 1-06 Moville 1-08. This was a game St. Mary’s didn’t deserve to lose and they can look forward with some confidence to the return leg in 4 weeks time. It was a very good team performance with John Doherty and Marty Mc Namee outstanding.
Senior and Reserve training continues on Tuesday and Thursdays at 7.30pm.
