First Round Defeat for Reserves

Fr. Manning Gaels 3-06

Carrickedmond 1-20

Hard luck to the Reserve team who were defeated in the first round of the championship by Carrickedmond on a scoreline of 1-20 to 3-6. The Gaels were short a number of players who would have been available for Reserve selection, however it was still a determined performance by the lads who now face Mostrim on the 27th of this month in what is a must win game for the team to qualify for the knock out stages. The Gaels were leading at half time 2-3 to 0-8, and it looked as if the Gaels were well in contention, however Carrickedmond asserted their authority in the second half (against a 14 man Gaels team after Anthony McKeon received a straight red) and ended up running out comfortable victors by 8 points.


The teams and scorers were as follows:

Anthony Keane, Rory Carthy (0-1), Declan Donnelly, Micheál Kane, Stephen Cosgrove, Leon McKeon, Robert Rehill, Michael Mulleady (1-03), Seán Whelan, Danny McGee, Martin Mulleady, Gearóid Nertney (1-0), Scott Howe, Derek McKeon (1-1), Podge Gill (0-1).
