St Mary's, Convoy

St Mary's seniors welcomed Bundoran to St Mary's pitch on Sunday evening. An evenly matched contest with St Mary's coming out on top in the end. St Mary's were ahead at half-time, 2-07 to 1-04 with goals from J. Mc Gill and R. Mc Namee and points from C Dolan, P Dolan and J McGill.

The second half was much the same with both teams giving their all. Points from P O'Leary, L McMullan, P Blake and J Doherty made it 2-12 to 1-8 before Bundoran's goal left four points in it. St Mary's replied with points from J McGill and A Browne (back from his travels) but Bundorarn stepped up a gear with three unanswered points and a goal to leave just a point in it, 2-14 to 3-10. St Mary's finished the stronger and got the next three scores, two from J McGill and A Browne to win 2-17 to 3-10. A great result and a very enjoyable match.

The Minor boys journey came to an end on Wednesday evening in Convoy with Gweedore claiming the NRB division 1 minor league title in an epic battle as the two teams could not be separated at full time, Extra time was called for, again nothing was separating them. A penalty shootout was looking likely at one point, but it was the Magheragallon outfit that just went ahead before the whistle blew.
