Club Notes, October 11th 2016

Senior Men: The Senior Team were defeat last Sunday morning by Clontibret. The Faughs opened well with three Dermot Malone points and a Mark Treanor point leaving us four up before Clontibret responded with two points of their own and when Ciaran Hanratty found the net just before half time it left the Faugh up by six points on a score line of Clontibret 0-6 Faughs 1-9. As the old sporting cliché goes “it was a game of two halves” and this game certainly went that way with Clontibret emerging for the second half very focused on getting the two points. A Goal straight after the break for the O’Neills left three points in it and it took another twenty seven minutes before they got the equalizer. With full time up Clontibret scored that vital point to ensure that the two league points, the result now see us enter the last round of league games in third place on nineteen points. Our last league is against Carrick, it is an important game for both sides as a win for the Faughs guarantee a semi final place in the league while a win for Carrick could see them avoid the drop to intermediate, the match is scheduled for St.Marys Park at 2pm on Sunday 23rd of October.
