Senior Fixtures: The senior B match is off this Wednesday night.
Seniors: Our senior men travel to take on Emyvale this coming Sunday, throw-in at 2.00pm. Let’s hope they continue their good start to the league.
Our C team took on Blackhill on Saturday evening past in the Q/F of the McKeown. Having beaten Carrick on the Wednesday before, hopes were high we could take our good form into the championship game.
In a low scoring first half both teams shot more wides than scores, halftime score Blackhill 0-02, Faughs 0-04. The second half was a tense affair with Blackhill getting the all important goal in the 22nd minute to go into the lead for the first time.
Despite our best efforts we were unable to get back into the game, final score Blackhill 1-09, Faughs 0-10.
With Aughnamullen conceding the RFL Div1B game this Wednesday, our next reserve game is the RFL Div3 game at home against Blackhill on Friday June 2nd at 8.00pm
