Our Senior men recorded their 7th victory of the league Division 1 campaign when they overcame a tough Shamrock Gaels team on Sunday afternoon last. The team lead at the half time interval on a scoreline of 1-5 to 0-3. The goal came courtesy of Shane Dunne's quick reflexes, after the ball came off the upright. The team suffered some injuries in the second but remained on top with some excellent scores from John Quinn. The final score Tourlestrane 1-10 Shamrock Gaels 1-8.
Team line out: Seamus Gildea, Diarmuid Dunne, Brian Kennedy, Barry Kirrane, David Durkin, Noel Gaughan, James Leonard, Adrian McIntyre, Shane Dunne, John Kelly, Brian Egan, John Marren, Gerry McGowan, John Quinn and Eamonn O'Hara. Subs used: Michéal Henry (Brian Kennedy inj.), Padraig McVeigh (John Kelly inj.) and Ruairí Brennan (Gerry McGowan).
The team complete all their games of the league next weekend when they play both Ballymote and St. Mary's respectively. Victories in both games will secure a Division 1 final spot. Speedy recoveries are wished to the numerous senior players out of action at the moment.
Hard luck to the Division 3 team who lost to the same opposition on a scoreline of 3-6 to 0-5. The team play Cloonacool in round 12 of the league at home on Sunday morning at 11.30am.
Best wishes to our minors Cathal Henry, John Carr, Kenny Gavighan, JP Lang and the rest of the Sligo Minor team and management as they take on Roscommon, this Sunday, the 23rd of June in the Connaght Championship Semi Final. The game takes place in Carrick On Shannon at 1.30pm.
The young girls of the parish were out of luck twice this week. Our U-12 Community Games girls team put up a strong fight against Drom of Roscommon in the preliminary round of the Connaght finals but lost out on a score line of 6-18 to 5-8. This is the second year the girls have won this competition at this level. The team has grown stronger and stronger and no doubt they will be back to defend their title next year. The team will continue to train hard under Leo, Maureen, Patrick and Katie for the A Championship.
Hard luck also to the girls of Castlerock NS who lost the 3 teacher Cumann Na mBunscol final against Kilglass. There was excellent talent of show and Leonie Gaughan and Sarah Cunnie worked very hard around midfield.The U-14 girls recorded a good win over St. Farnan's recently which sets them up for a semi final in the coming weeks. Missing a few players, the girls pulled together and scored a last minute goal, winning by two points. The U-16 girls are looking strong in their league campaign but the competition is now at a standstill due to the Junior Cert. exams.
Senior ladies training continues this Thursday evening at 6.30pm.
Best wishes to Tracy O'Hara, Claire Colleran and the rest of the Sligo Senior Ladies team and management as they take on Leitrim in the first round of the Connaght Championship this weekend.
