SFL: On Friday past the senior men travelled to take on Magheracloone. The Faughs got off to a great start with Marty McElroy getting the first point on the board in the 2nd minute.
This was quickly followed by a Dermot McArdle goal. Ciaran Hanratty added two points to make it 1-3 to 0-1 after 11 minutes. Magheracloone then took control and at half time the lads were down 1-4 to 1-6.
The game ebbed and flowed and by the 50th minute, Magheracloone were up by a single point, 1-10 to 1-9. The lads then took control of the game and rattled over 4 unanswered points in the space of ten minutes including two frees by Marty McElroy. Maghercloone got the last point of the game, but the Faughs had done enough to see out the match on a scoreline of Magheracloone 1-11, Faughs 1-13. There were some good performances all over the pitch, with Mark Treanor putting in a great effort.
