Platinum Tanks Reserve Football League Div 1B: Final:

The lads made the short trip to Carrick to take on Killanny in the Div 1B FInal on Friday evening past. In great conditions for football, expectations were high that the Faughs would take home the silverware and the lads certainly didn’t disappoint. The Faughs were 1-03 up before Killanny registered a score in the 7th minute who then registered another 3 points to make the score 1-03 to 0-04. This was as close as Killanny got to Blayney who went in 2-09 to 1-08 at halftime. The lads turned up the heat at the beginning of the second half and put together some good passages of play and were soon 5-12 to 1-09 up. In fairness the Faughs were a lot stronger than Killanny, and eventually came out on top on a scoreline of Killanny 1-10, Faughs 6-16 – well done to all the players and management involved.

U16 Girls: County League Winners

The venue was Cremartin on Monday night past for the U16 County League Final between Castleblayney and Donaghamoyne. These ladies have met in the past numbers of years with Donaghmoyne coming out winners. A well organised Blayney team took to the field with intentions of making their mark. Some great scores from both teams in the first half but at half time Blayney went in 1 point up.

The second half started as the first finished and it obvious the Faughs ladies were not going home without the cup and title. They dug deep and started to pull away. As Donaghmoyne tried to come back the Blayney defence closed them out.

When the final whistle blew the delight was obvious with players and supporters.

Well done to the team and management of this group of girls doing themselves, their families and the club proud.

Final score line 2-10 to 0-11

Despite the dreadful conditions, all the girls enjoyed the experience and everyone played remarkably well.

Well Done: Well done to Monaghan minor boys who booked their place in the All-Ireland MFC semi-finals with a well-earned win over Kildare in Mullingar on Saturday.
